Four months after Sea World polar bear Liya gave birth to a little cub, the little bear has finally been christened.

Park bosses revealed the girl's gender last month, and have been holding a vote since then to see what to name her.

The four options, paying tribute to her Russian and Canadian heritage were Mishka, Katya, Nukka and Arina, and the winner was announced the morning!

Drum roll please.... the adorable cub will now be known as Mishka.

It means "little bear" in Russian and Inuit.
