1 minute read

From his first steps to his first romp in the snow, the approximately four-month-old polar bear cub at the Toronto Zoo has virtually grown up on YouTube. Now, after a naming contest that involved about 14,000 people voting, “Humphrey” has been revealed as the winning name for this cub. An Inuit name, “Piujuq (Piu)”, was also chosen, meaning “good or nice,” according to a press release. The name “Humphrey” beat out five other names: James, Lorek, Orson, Searik, and Stirling.
