浜 (bīn) seems to be a very common character in the names of pandas. For example:

  • 爱浜
  • 良浜
  • 樱浜
  • 桃浜
  • 梅浜
  • 永浜
  • 雄浜

just to name a few.

    No, it's not a Chinese name. These pandas all born at a Japanese zoo called 日本和歌山白浜野生动物园, just come from the name of the zoo. – user4072 May 26 '15 at 8:39

They are not so popular in China. However, a lot of pandas are born in Japan, where they are named with the character 浜. It's probably due to the name of the Shirahama zoo (Adventure World, 白浜野生动物园, アドベンチャーワールド) where they are born.

This 浜 is not a Chinese character. It is a Japanese character. :)

An'an, Jiajia,Tuantuan, Yuanyuan. Chinese panda names almost always use doubled characters. They're cute!
