Tai Shan isn't a new Chinese's the panda's name

The National Zoo has a name for the baby's not Mike, Matthew, John, or Joe. The winning name is Tai Shan, meaning "Peaceful Mountain". I'd think you'd want to call him something that translates into bamboo eater or Cleveland Metro stop attraction. Over 200,000 votes were cast among a handful of name choices, and Tai Shan received 44%. You can watch the panda on the pandacam if you're really interested.
