Toronto Zoo polar bear cub reveals name on YouTube
Cuteness, thy name is Humphrey
A polar bear cub at the Toronto Zoo has revealed his name to the world in the kind of online video that has already made him an online sensation: Cuteness, thy name is Humphrey.
The zoo posted a video Thursday showing the cub tug a shroud away from a sign that simply reads: "Hello, my name is Humphrey."
Humphrey was born in November and his name was selected by 14,000 fans who participated in a "name the cub" contest. The name Humphrey beat out five other contenders: Orson, James, Lorek, Searik and Stirling.
Humphrey has also been given an Inuit name — "Piujuq" (Piu), meaning "good and nice." The cub will be formally documented as Humphrey Piujuq in the official registry at the zoo.
Humphrey lives with three adult polar bears at the zoo: his mother Aurora, father Inukshuk and aunt Nikita.
