The votes have been tallied and the Columbus Zoo's baby polar bear's name is officially Nora.

Naming the baby bear, which was born on Nov. 6, was no easy task. In order to ease the responsibility, the Zoo set up a vote allowing participants to choose between Desna, Nora, Kaya or Sakari. In total, 88,061 votes were cast from 115 different countries.

In the end, however, the name Nora prevailed. It's a combination of Nanuq and Aurora, her parents' names.
