Zhen Zhen

Cub's name unveiled!
(November 26, 2007)
With the sounds of traditional Chinese music and the performance of a Chinese dance troupe in lion costumes, the Zoo unveiled the name of its 16-week-old giant panda cub. Zhen Zhen, which means precious, garnered more than 50,000 votes or 36 percent.

After sorting through more than 2,400 names submitted by San Diego Zoo visitors, the Zoo's giant panda team narrowed the names down to four and gave people all over the world the opportunity to vote for their favorite through an online naming poll earlier this month.
