Yun Zi Son of Cloud

San Diego Zoo managers have chosen to name a baby panda Yun Zi, which means "son of cloud." This is a great name. Yun Zi's mother's name is Bai Yun, which translates to "white cloud." Therefore, the panda cub is son of cloud. The cub's name was revealed at a special ceremony held at the Hunte Amphitheater. The ceremony included a large poster featuring the cub and his new name.

The zoo received 6,331 name suggestions. Yun Zi was born earlier this summer and is now 3 months old. The zoo offers a live Panda Cam here. Son of Cloud is adorable. Take a look:
