It's got eight arms but no name.

Officials at the National Zoo in Washington want some help naming their new giant Pacific octopus.

The creature could grow to be 10 feet long, it's now about three feet.

The zoo has set up a Web page where people can vote on names.

One of the four suggestions is Octavius.

The prefix "oct" means eight, the number of arms the octopus has.

The octo-name poll will run through April 7.
