Do monkeys host sip and sees after a newborn enters their lives? We sure hope so because this new mandrill monkey at the Columbus Zoo & Aquarium is stealing our hearts.

On Sun., Oct. 16, the mandrills Malaika and Mosi became a monkey mom + dad after giving birth to a boy. This adorable creature is currently unnamed which brings us to a fun game: What would you name the new monkey?

The Zoo isn’t seeking submissions, but we are. Send us your best name for this mini mandrill and we’ll share a few of our favorites once it’s officially named.
