On Nov. 3, Zoo Atlanta will open voting for a name for its newest panda. Fans can submit a name by visiting zooatlanta.com. Balloting will continue through Dec. 3. The male cub will be 100 days old on Dec. 8 and, in accordance with Chinese tradition, will finally get a name.
The cubâ€™s name will be selected from a final list of 12 suggestions: One from the zooâ€™s board of directors, two from zoo staff, one from zoo members and one from suggestions on the zooâ€™s myspace.com page. Five names will come from media, and the other two will be suggested by fans in China’s Chengdu City, home of the research facility that owns the pandas.
