The giant panda at the National Zoo is now named Bao Bao, which means teasure or precious. Officials announced the name yesterday as the cub turned 100 days old, following Chinese tradition. Of the five names on the list for public on-line voting, the winner got more than 123-thousand. The cub is only the second surviving panda born in Washington.
