The National Zoo in DC needs a name for its newest panda cub, and everyone is invited to help name the little one.
Born on August 21, 2020 in the US capital, this little one is known for excelling at napping, nursing, and cuddling with his mother Mei Xiang; there is even a Giant Panda Camera so you can see him and his parents in action.
Possible names, chosen by the zoo and Chinese partners who are striving to conserve this beloved and endangered species, reflect the happiness people share for the young panda.
Here are your four naming options to choose from:
1. Fu Zai (fu-tzai) | Fu Tsai: Mandarin Chinese for “prosperous child”
2. Xiao Qi ji (shiau-chi-ji) | Little Miracle: Mandarin Chinese for “little miracle”
3. Xing Fu (shing-fu) | happy: Mandarin Chinese for “happy and prosperous”
4. Zai Zai (tzai-tzai) | Zai Zai: Mandarin Chinese nickname for a boy
Head here and select your favorite name once a day from November 16 to November 20.
The name that receives the most votes? It will be awarded to the pup on Nov 23, so keep an eye out for that.
