More than 100,000 people participated in a survey narrowing down the name choices for Guangzhou’s new panda cub out of some 10 thousand suggestions, but the final call came down to the cub’s mother, who personally gave her approval of the name ‘Rumble’ in the most adorable way ever.
After a month of voting, the top three names were “Rumble” with 18,916 votes, “Yue Yue” with 17,785 votes and “Ocean” with 15,426 votes.
The final decision, however, lay with the mother panda. Breeders placed three plums in front of the panda, with each plum representing a name. After wandering around and slowly making up her mind, she selected the “Rumble” plum. Cute.
