SAN DIEGO (AP) — There is a little gift at the San Diego Zoo that's going to get very big.

It's been 100 days since the latest panda cub was born there. That's the day Chinese tradition at the zoo calls for the cub to get its name.

In a ceremony Tuesday, the cub was dubbed Xiao Liwu (shee-ow lee-woo).

That's means Little Gift in English.

Zoo visitors chose the name from a list of six. Translations of the other names were Miracle, Raindrop, Big Ocean or Big Sea, Brave Son and Water Dragon.

The cub was born July 29 to mother Bai Yun (bye-yuhn) which means White Cloud and father Gao Gao (gow-gow), which means Tall Tall.
