Brigitte Macron Names Panda Cub Born In France

Brigitte Macron, wife of French President Emmanuel Macron, revealed the name of the baby panda, the first-ever cub born in the country.

Joined by Chinese officials, Brigitte Macron, who is also the baby panda's godmother, announced that the four-month-old cub's name is Yuan Meng which means "the realization of a dream" in Chinese.

Born on Aug 4, the baby panda had been called "Mini Yuan Zi," referring to his father Yuan Zi, who arrived with his female partner Huan Huan in central France's Beauval zoo in January 2012, on loan from China for ten years.
