Help Name the Polar Bear Cub
Here's your "Aww" factor of the day.
This little polar bear needs our help in giving her a name.
Isn't she cute?
According to ABC7 Chicago, The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium posted on their facebook page that this little sweetie needs a name. She was born Nov. 6, 2015, at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, half of a litter of two but her sibling did not survive. When her mother stopped caring for her, zoo staff took over. Now three months old, she's ready to be named."
The zoo decided to make a contest out of naming their little furball. "Zoo staff selected four names for the public to choose from: Desna, which means "boss"; Nora, from Nanuq and Aurora; Kaya, which means "little but wise"; and Sakari, which means "sweet."
"I'm ready for my close-up!" Help us name our polar bear girl on this Wild Wednesday! The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium team has selected their top choices and would like your help to choose the best one. Vote for your favorite here every day through Feb. 3 => columbuszoo.org/namethecub #WildWed

You can vote on a name by clicking here. Voting is open until Feb. 3. Her name will be announced on Feb. 5.
Although she isn't on display for public viewing yet, the zoo is hoping she will be ready by this spring along with her new name.
What name do you like best? I like the names Nora and Kaya.
I voted for Nora today. Tomorrow I'm going to vote for Kaya.
