    SAN DIEGO (AP) The San Diego Zoo's panda cub finally has a name: Zhen Zhen, or Precious. Following Chinese tradition, the zoo waited until the cub, which was born Aug. 3, was 100 days old before giving her a name Monday.
    According to zoo officials, Zhen Zhen (pronounced shen shen) won out over 2,400 names submitted by zoo visitors. Thirty-six percent of voters chose the name from among the four finalists.
    The other choices were Li Hua, or Beautiful China; Ming Zhu, or Bright Treasure; and Xiao Li, or Little Beauty.
    The cub is still living out of public view in a private den with her mother, the panda Bai Yun, but can be seen via the zoo's Web cam.
    Zhen Zhen is the third cub born to Bai Yun and her consort, Gao Gao, since 2003. The panda couple has been one of the most reproductively successful ever in captivity.
