    Para un juego infantil, en el que los niños deben de encontrar entre varios animales uno en concreto que se le propone, necesito saber como traducir "¿Qué animal se llama...?"

    Based on the context you gave in your other thread, I'd say: Which animal is called...?

    Would it be also possible "named" instead of "called" ?

    By the way, welcome to WR, xj_vp .

    I suppose it would be OK. It sounds a bit childish, but if it's for children...

    Thank you chamyto & gengo.

    If named sounds a bit childish, maybe it's better for me.

    Which animal is called giraffe?
    Which animal is named giraffe?

    Both are grammatically correct, but the second one sounds like "giraffe" is the proper name of the animal (as in "Hi, Giraffe!"), so I still think "called" sounds better. But for very young children, the second one might be OK.

    Is for children between 1 and 6 years. What option do you recommend me?

    It doesn't really matter. The children will understand either one equally well.
