The only surviving panda twins born in the United States are about to get official names. Currently known as cub A and cub B, these sweet boys have been waiting patiently for the Chinese tradition of being 100 days old to arrive. That time has come and according to “Good Morning America" on Oct. 3, you will be able to help them out by picking the best names for them.
The Atlanta Zoo has teamed up with “GMA” to get the public’s help with naming the cubs. These panda cubs have grown from hairless newborns into their traditional black and white selves in the last couple of months since their exciting birth in July. They have their own unique personalities and are as cute as ever. However, they will be even more distinct with one of these Chinese-inspired names.
This list of five choices will be up on next Wednesday on “GMA”s website in a poll but in order to get you all thinking about which one is a good fit, they have chosen to provide them ahead of time.
First up is Mei Lun and Mei Hua, which basically acknowledges their American birthplace.
The second choice is Mei Lun and Mei Huan, which in Chinese translation means indescribably beautiful and magnificent.
Next is Tian Lun and Tian Le, the joy of family life or happiness.
The fourth choice is Lan Tian and Bi Shui, an ancient Chinese idiom for beautiful scenery or blue sky and clear water.
Lastly is Da Lan and Xiao Lan, which means bigger one and smaller one.
The poll will open to the public on Oct 9 and the winning names will be announced live on “Good Morning America” on Oct 23.
What are your thoughts on these five name choices?
