ISN’T she precious? The giant panda cub born this summer at the National Zoo will be known as Bao Bao — Chinese for “precious,” officials at the Washington zoo have announced.

More than 123,000 people voted online in the zoo’s baby-naming contest, in which voters were given five names to choose from. The official announcement was made on Sunday in keeping with a Chinese tradition to name panda cubs on their 100th day.

So far Bao Bao has only been seen by the public in video. She is expected to make her first live appearance before adoring panda fans in early 2014, zoo officials said.
