Drumroll, please.

The adorable baby polar bear at the Columbus Zoo will now be called ...


The zoo launched an online poll asking participants to cast votes for the young bear's name.

And ultimately, Nora, a mashup of her parents' names (Nanuq and Aurora), beat out Desna, Kaya and Sakari.

Nora is currently staying behind the scenes, being cared for by the staff at the zoo's animal hospital, but the 3-month-old polar bear will be introduced to the public later this spring.
