The National Zoo Has a New Panda Cub–And They’re Asking for Votes to Name It

The National Zoo in D.C. needs a name for its newest panda cub, and everyone’s invited to help name the little guy.

National Zoo

Born on August 21, 2020 in the US capital, this wee one is known to excel at napping, nursing, and cuddling with his mother Mei Xiang—there’s even a Giant Panda Cam so you can see him and his parents in action.

The possible names—chosen by the zoo and Chinese partners who strive to conserve this beloved and endangered bear—reflect the happiness people share for the young panda.

Here are your four naming options to choose from:

1. Fu Zai (fu-tzai) | 福仔: Mandarin Chinese for “prosperous boy”

2. Xiao Qi ji (shiau-chi-ji) | 小奇迹: Mandarin Chinese for “little miracle”

3. Xing Fu (shing-fu) | 幸福: Mandarin Chinese for “happy and prosperous”

4. Zai Zai (tzai-tzai) | 仔仔: Mandarin Chinese nickname for a boy

Head here and select your favorite name once per day from November 16 to November 20.
