The world's only living panda triplets have finally got their names chosen from over 1.2 million entries, three months after their birth in south China' s Guangdong Province.
全球首例存活的大熊猫三胞胎三个月前在广州诞生,现在终于有了自己的名字。自三胞胎满月开始,120多万“大熊猫粉丝”踊跃参与了面向全球为大熊猫征名的活动。

The oldest sister(大姐) is named Mengmeng(萌萌), which means cute. While her two younger brothers(弟弟) are called Shuaishuai(帅帅handsome), and Kuku (酷酷 cool) respectively. Organizers(组织方) say the names were quite popular and were picked(挑选) to try to show each cub' s character(性格).

Pianist(钢琴家) LiYundi was on hand(亲临) at the naming ceremony. The famous musician played various melodies for the cubs, and called for the protection of the species.
