Nintendo's 3DS attachment which adds a second C-Pad to the system has finally received an official name. According to a new trademark, It is now called the Circle Pad Pro
. It makes sense considering previous peripheral names such as the Classic Controlle Pro. Hopefully, new games such as Kid Icarus will add the Circle Pad Pro before they are released.IGN said:

According to a recent filing, the attachment will be known as the Circle Pad Pro in the West, and simply as a "slide pad expansion" in Japan.
The add-on is currently confirmed to be compatible with Monster Hunter 3G and Resident Evil Revelations, among others. For more on the Circle Pad Pro, be sure to read our detailed hands-on impressions from TGS.
