  Love baby giant pandas? Name them

    BEIJING, Jan. 26 -- From July to September 2006, 11 giant pandas gave birth to 18 cubs at the Research and Conservation Center for Giant Panda in the Wolong Nature Reserve in southwest China's Sichuan Province. As of Feb. 10, 2007, all 18 cubs will no longer live with their mothers and will start an independent life. As usual, they will be given their own names. At the moment, the giant pandas are named from No.1 to No 18.

    The Research and Conservation Center for Giant Pandas is launching a public solicitation for names for these cute animals. www.chinadaily.com.cn is authorized to collect the English names and you can post your choice there. The deadline for submitting the names is Feb. 5, 2007.

    Once the name is chosen, the Research and Conservation Center for Giant Pandas has the rights of ownership and use. A ceremony will be held on Feb. 10, 2007 at the center to celebrate the cub's moving out of the room into the nursery playground.
