The polar bear cub in Copenhagen has got a name now – IMAQ. I guess the name means something in the inuit language but I couldn’t find out what it means. I know there’s a lake with that name in Canada.

To celebrate the name Lynn and her daughter took a swimming tour.

I made some screen shots from the video for those who may not be able to see it.

Imaq seemed to be a little afraid of the water in previous reports but now she’s swimming and diving like a ‘professional’. 🙂

Mama Lynn tried to eat her snack but, naturally, Imaq wanted to have a bite, too.

  1. May be this little cub had a seventh sense for what its name wil be and what it means!
    Possibly ‘Ocean’ and/or ‘Sea’ Anyway, it’s always good if Mamma is near by in the water,
    as we can see from the video 🙂

    Thanks for the quick information, dear MERVI and for having snipped out some pics out of the video.

    Are you happy with little ‘baby’ and its name, dear INGE aus COPENHAGEN?.

  2. Dear Mervi!
    Thank you for the update!
    Imaq sounds good and I wonder what the meaning is. Hopefully a nice one.
    I´m quite relieved that Lynn´s little one swims and dives safely and confidently now.
    I hope you can see her soon with your own eyes!

    Hugs
    Anke

  3. Dear Mervi!

    Thank you for the interesting news. Imaq sounds well.
    I wish you all a pleasant Thursday!

  4. Liebe Mervi,

    wer weiß, in welchen Nordischen Sagen dieser Name ausgegraben worden ist, originell ist er allemal und vielleicht kann jemand das Geheimnis der Bedeutung noch lösen.
    Munter und fidel ist IMAQ und Mutters Futter offensichtlich verlockend, aber ich denke, statt mit Sellerie oder was ähnlichem ist sie mit Muttermilch doch besser versorgt.

    Danke fĂĽr deine aktuelle Berichterstattung und GrĂĽĂźe an dich, liebe Inge, in Kopenhagen!

  5. Dear Mervi
    As a Brit I was wondering if it is pronounced Eyemak or Imak? The main thing is that the keepers can use it call the little one.
    Lynn will have given her daughter an appropriate name in Polar Bear, which will be a mixture of sounds smells and tastes. The main thing is that she is a great little girl with a beautiful mother.

  6. Thanks for showing dear Mervi, she is such a charming little lady.
    Hugs Inge

  7. Liebe Mervi,
    gefällt mir, eine gute Namenswahl.
    Danke Dir fĂĽr die Infos und die Bilder/Video von der kleinen Imaq und Mama Lynn
    Liebe GrĂĽĂźe Moni K

  8. Liebe Mervi,

    danke fĂĽr die Info mit den Bildern und das Video.
    Den Namen Imaq kann man sich gut aussprechen, und er hört sich auch gut an.

    Was die Namen der ganzen keinen Eisbärchen betrifft, da bin ich ein bisschen überfordert. Ich kann sie mir nicht alle merken.

    Liebe GrĂĽĂźe
    Monika
