Politically correct naming...

Atlanta’s newest favorite son — Zoo Atlanta’s panda cub — now has a name: Xi Lan (shee-lahn).

In a ceremony marking his 100th day of life, zoo officials revealed the name — which means “Atlanta’s joy” — while about 200 people, braving the sunny, morning chill, cheered with excitement.

So...when a zoo in Beijing acquires a Bald they name it "Bob" or "Fred" or know...American?
