The name Yuanbao received over 8,700 votes in a naming contest, beating out the runner-up, “Rourou.”
Taipei Zoo’s newborn Yuanbao is only about two months old, but she is already a media darling. Yuanbao spends most of her time sleeping and suckling milk.
Last week, the panda cub still didn’t know what her name was. Yuanbao or Rourou? Now, it’s official. After an online vote, the public chose Yuanbao as the baby panda’s name.
