The 21-day-old Clydesdale from Budweiser's Super Bowl commercial now has a name.

After opening the doors to fan suggestions, Budweiser selected the name "Hope," which they say is a nod to the optimistic tone of the commercial. In the Super Bowl ad, a grown Clydesdale horse finds its way back to the owner who raised it as a baby.

Budweiser said it received more than 60,000 tweets, Facebook comments and calls answering its request for fans to send in their ideas for names. "Hope" was among the most popular female name suggestions that the company received.
