This Adorable Baby Polar Bear Needs a Name!

Say “hi” to the new and extremely adorable baby polar bear who was born at the Toronto Zoo just a couple of days ago. The zoo’s staff couldn’t come up with a name for the newborn, so instead of racking their brains, they are hosting a contest through Facebook instead! Engaging kids and adults in the naming process is a great way to get them excited about animals, but we’ve got to say, we think this baby bear could do better than the already suggested Snowball, Q-Tip, Playie or Aspen. So go on and think of a good name — but bear in mind, this fluffy little bundle seems to be a male!

    How about cush? We just got a great pyrenesse pup male given to me in exchange for some horse work I did for owner of the pups. I’ve been trying to name him as well. I like the names avalanche, tank, marko, polo? Dakota? I can’t think of anymore at the moment but if I do ill post them. Good luck and God Bless,

    Since the little babe was one of three baby polar bears, I think his name should be TRIO in memory of his brothers.

    My first idea was Muffy but I dont want other animals to mock him, so I suggest Artie (from Arthur that sounds similar to Arctos, which means “bear” in old greek I guess:))
