Toronto Zoo Asking You To Help Name Baby Polar Bear

We share a lot of random cuteness with you on RiverGrandRapids.com.  Dogs, cats, ducks … if it’s an animal, we love it (mostly).

That carries to polar bears, too!

The Toronto Zoo is home to a baby polar bear. He’s finally old enough for the public to seem him on a regular basis and he needs a name!  Zoo staff picked their top six names, and now YOU get to vote for your favorite!

Here’s the shortlist of potential names:
  • Humphrey: It means Peaceful Warrior. The name was derived from the Germanic elements hun, which means bear cub, and frid, which means peace.
  • Orson: Latin for bear.
  • James: In honor of James Bay. Another cub was named Hudson after Hudson’s Bay and is this cub’s brother.
  • Lorek: Comes from the movie Golden Compass. Lorek comes from the word laurel, which is a symbol of victory.
  • Searik: Inuit for beautiful.
  • Stirling: Means genuine, high quality, and pure.

Vote for your favorite name choice HERE!
