Thousands of suggested names have been sent to the San Diego Zoo the new baby panda cub.

The eleven-week old giant panda cub got his weekly exam Tuesday.

Zoo veterinarians say he weighs 9 lbs and is eating well. He's even learning how to push up on his front paws and pull himself around his den.

The zoo says it's reviewing the list of names submitted by zoo goers and people all around the world. Finalists will be posted on the zoo's website in the next couple of weeks so everyone can vote for their favorite. The winning name will be announced at a ceremony on November 17.
