The offspring of the Red Pandas in Tierpark Berlin, who were born at the end of June, have been christened Urs.

The young animal was named after Urs Fischer, currently head coach at 1. FC Union Berlin, as the zoo announced on Tuesday.

The association is the godfather of the red panda and went looking for a name together with the zoo last month.

Berlin - "I'm of course pleased that so many Unioners and zoo fans have suggested the name" Urs "and that they seem to be very familiar with the origin of my first name," said Urs Fischer, according to the zoo.

The name goes back to the Latin word "Ursus", which means "bear".

He was chosen by the three-person jury consisting of zoo keeper Nils Frankenfeld, deputy zoological director Florian Sicks and Jochen Lesching, chairman of the Union Foundation from several hundred suggestions.
