Handles for pandas


ABOVE: One of two panda cubs, Mei Lun, formerly known as Panda A, is shown at Zoo Atlanta on Wednesday in Atlanta. Panda B will be called Mei Huan. Both names originate from a Chinese idiom that means “something indescribably beautiful and magnificent.” People voted on several possible names through the website for ABC’s “Good Morning America.” The cubs were born to 15-year-old Lun Lun, who was artificially inseminated in March. They are the fourth and fifth cubs born at the zoo to Lun Lun and her partner Yang Yang.

Cupcakes are displayed at Zoo Atlanta on Wednesday, Oct. 23, 2013 during a ceremony naming the twin panda cubs. Zoo officials said Wednesday the pandas will be called Mei Lun (may loon) and Mei Huan (may hwaan), which originates from a Chinese idiom that means “something indescribably beautiful and magnificent.” People voted on several possible names through the website for ABC’s “Good Morning America.” The cubs were born to 15-year-old Lun Lun, who was artificially inseminated in March. They are the fourth and fifth cubs born at the zoo to Lun Lun and her partner Yang Yang. The names were selected by staff at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding in China.
