Scientists Say Elephants Give Each Other Names

Researchers have discovered a very human-like habit among elephants - they give each other names. Scientists say female African savanna elephants use "individually distinct" calls to address each other.  Most elephants recognize their 'names' and immediately respond. Researchers say it's something "previously known to occur only in human language" and completely changes how we view the evolution of language. What animals do you think are the most human-like?
