From the National Zoo:

“This is the day! Today, our panda cub gets her name. The ceremony, TODAY at 1 PM, is open to the public but space is limited. The cub herself will go on exhibit in early January.”

You can see the five panda cub name options here.

Updates when the name is announced.

It’s Bao Bao!!! Bao Bao means treasure or precious.
