Many names for polar bears
Nanuq is just one name Inuit give to the great white bear of the North. Atiqtalaaq is the word they use for newborns. Atiqtalik is the name used to refer to mothers that have emerged from the birthing den with their atiqtaq - newly emerged cubs. Polar bears are sacred to Inuit. They are treated with respect, and even reverence.
During the first year of life, researchers refer to polar bear cubs as COYs - cubs of the year. Between one and two years of age, polar bear cubs are referred to as yearlings. The sub-adult stage ranges from 2.5 to 5 years of age. A polar bear is called an adult at five years of age and older.
