    Smile came to be known as the Pink Panther

    However, because of his popularity, the signature pink cat came to be known as the Pink Panter. Even today, the Pink Panther's theme song brings image of the cool cat to mind.


    Does the part in bold mean "was known as the Pink Panther in the long run" or "was gradually known as the Pink Panther?" Or something else? Thanks.
