A dolphin born last month at the Miami Seaquarium finally has a name — it’s Calyspo.

The theme park on Rickenbacker Causeway officially announced the baby’s name Thursday after a month-long Facebook contest to name the calf.

The little girl was born April 11, weighing in at 20 to 30 pounds and measuring two to three feet to proud parents Panama and Sundance.

Calypso is Panama’s fourth calf.

Mother and baby live in the park’s top deck pool.

Rather than just naming her, the park wanted to get everyone involved. So voters chose between Bali, Fiji, Calypso and Sanibel.

In honor of Mother’s Day, the park is offering 50 percent off admission for up to four guests if they bring a Mother’s Day card to Panama.
