    Toby for a male, Tabitha (Tabby) for a femeale

  • CW - 5 years ago

    I don't like the names Kulu and Madoa, but the cubs should have African names. When the pandas were named they chose Asian names to reflect their Chinese origins. The same practice should extend to the cubs.l

    I am sending in my Vote for my Choice, They are both born in Maryland, and although they are from A Africa, I like a colorful name for them both, nothing too serious, something that Kids will like, I like Tom and Jerry, and or Bennie and Cecil or Marge and Mike, what ever, so as long s they are liked by Kids , Adults everyone, is okay with me..

    Thank you, WJZ-TV for your part and help in saving these Animals. I hope that more people will come to the Zoo in the future to see them and other animals as well.

    Thank you

    GOD Bless

  • Tricia - 5 years ago

    I think Tucker and Joe would be good names!

  • Steve Askew - 5 years ago

    Luke and Leia are great names. Screw the PC sanctimony.

  • Mo - 5 years ago

    Don't think much of the name choices. I voted for the African names even though I'm not thrilled with their meanings. Vote for Kulu and Madoa!

  • Anomar - 5 years ago

    I am sorry I am not going to vote for Huge and Spotty. I don't care if they were native to Africa, they are American Marylanders and their names should reflect that.

  • Joy - 5 years ago

    I think the perfect names are Spanky and Darla ;-)

  • Jen McColigan - 5 years ago

    Please please please DO NOT name these cubs after a Star Wars movie! They are of African heritage and have earned the right to African names. Kulu and Madoa are STRONG fierce names, names that belong to lion cubs; not cutesie Luke and Leia!

  • sherry - 5 years ago

    Honor their heritage and call them by African names, Kulu and Madea or Simba and Nala. With the passing of nelson mandela, it is even more appropriate to honor their origin.I love Simpsons and Star Wars but they have nothing to do with the heritage and backgrounds of our little lion cubs.

  • Mike Gallagher - 5 years ago

    Where do you people come from? Should be "Hon" and "Honey Twice".
    The other names would understand.

  • Bill Dollar - 5 years ago

    I think the cubs should be named Simba and La Mimba (king and little flower)
    The Journal of Pan African Studies, vol.2, no.8, March 2009 Translation

    Moyo wangu umefumba toka kuingia wewe
    Kama tumba kama tumba hifadhi yako na iwe
    Wewe ni ua la mimba na chipukizi na ikuwe
    Na furaha imewamba imekuzunguka wewe
    Moyo wangu umefumba

    My heart you’re enclosed from the time I came in
    Like a young flower let your shelter be
    You are the flower of a pregnancy that springs to growth
    And happiness has wrapped you have been surrounded
    My heart you’re enclosed

  • Sir Ackbar - 5 years ago

    "I think Kulu and Madoa are more appropriate than Star Wars characters. The little kids won't make the connection."

    If kids don't know who Luke and Leia are, then parents aren't raising their kids right. Star Wars all the way!

  • barb - 5 years ago

    I'm really surprised Simba and Nala weren't one of the choices, but I think Kulu and Madoa are more appropriate than Star Wars characters. The little kids won't make the connection. It just doesn't fit..sorry.

  • regina - 5 years ago

    cha cha and salsa

  • AMY - 5 years ago

    My write in vote is Kit and Kaboodle

  • Teech67 - 5 years ago

    How about Honey and Bee? "Hon and B for Baltimore"

  • Joan Deppi - 5 years ago

    I submit the male name of Hunter or Foster
    Female name Brooks

  • Joan Deppi - 5 years ago

    I submit the male name of Hunter or Foster
    Female name Brooks

  • Susan Hatfield - 5 years ago

    I think the cubs should be named Simba and Nala...from " The Lion King"

  • Tammi - 5 years ago

    I think their names should be Raven and Oriole!

  • Pam Powell - 5 years ago

    I like Simba and Nyla , that would be perfect for them.

  • hated - 5 years ago

    shut up about your sob stories

  • Jay - 5 years ago

    I think it should be Aurora and Orion like the constellations. Plus, lions roar (Aurora) and a Lion (Orion) come on work with me people!!!!!

  • virgie davis - 5 years ago


  • Harry - 5 years ago

    I think Kulu And Madoa are terrible names for Lions "huge" and "spots" bleh!
    Lions don't keep their spots and explaining their names to people later down the road after they have grown would just sound silly to me. More people in this generation would identify with Luke & Leia,

  • Barbara Fisher - 5 years ago

    I vote for Lear & Circe ~ Circe is the name my Granddaughter gave to her daughter after reading the novel in school. She was such an animal lover. My Granddaughter passed away when Circe was only 17 months old. What an honor to my Granddaughter this would be...

  • juanita sirbaugh - 5 years ago

    Luke was my brother who pass this summer middle name will be awesome to go to the zoo n know the loin has my brother's middle names

  • Carolyn Green - 5 years ago

    I think the little cubs should be named: AVERY AND AVA

  • margie alexander - 5 years ago

    lela & lionel

  • margie alexander - 5 years ago

    lela & lionel

  • Mike Waal - 5 years ago

    Suggestion for names:
    Frick and Frack

  • Mark Clark - 5 years ago

    Is it to late to put in names?

  • Peggy Groseclose - 5 years ago

    I think they should be named Nelson and Mandela.

  • mary - 5 years ago

    The cubs names should be!!
    Baltimore and Maryland!!
    Balti AND Mary for short.

  • Marcellus Carrington - 5 years ago

    "For my ally is the force."

  • Chrissy - 5 years ago

    I voted for Luke and Leia. I was just reminded today of a local family who lost two of their four daughters (plus all 4 of their pets, their entire home, and all their possessions) in a house fire in February. The oldest daughter/sister, who suffered burns and smoke inhalation in addition to all her losses, is obviously still struggling. But the family is resilient and working through the best they can. She is also a huge Star Wars fan! I highly recommend choosing Luke and Leia AND connecting with the Lillard family and helping them have more happy memories. In memory of Sophie and Madigan and in honor of Morgan, Sadie, and, new brother, Mason.

  • Julie A - 5 years ago

    I was thinking the names of the cubs should be - Oriole & Raven, keeping in tune with our sports. I did not know that we were past the time to enter names. I am sorry I missed the deadline. I think the cubs are so adorable, you just feel that you could cuddle with them. They re so playful.

  • festus - 5 years ago

    "Two lion cubs were born at the zoo in October. Sadly, their mother died from birth complications." - The perfect names are Luke and Lea !

  • festus - 5 years ago

    "Two lion cubs were born at the zoo in October. Sadly, their mother died from birth complications."

    The perfect names are Luke and Lea !

  • sal leone - 5 years ago

    I was thinking to name one of the females after their grandmother, Grace who also passed away.

  • Kileen - 5 years ago

    But Luke and Leia are second choice. They are way cute!!!!

  • Kileen - 5 years ago

    I think Natty or Nattie & Bo or Boh would be fitting for the Baltimore area.

  • DPAt - 5 years ago

    I vote for Lia' and Lai' or Leo and Lia

  • Helen Yurevitch - 5 years ago

    I like Mischka and Meeko. I did vote! Kulu and Madoa

  • S - 5 years ago

    Surely you could have picked more original names. How about Sebastian and Tessa? They are lions with their own identity and don't need to be named after anyone.

  • Kelz - 5 years ago

    Why is everybody so hung up on naming them themselves. These are not options! Get over it and deal with the choices we have been given or move on, Sheesh! This is not Burger King! #Can'tHaveItYouWay

  • Sarah - 5 years ago

    I'm surprised Simba and Nala isn't an option either.
    I vote Simba and Nala from the Lion King!

  • wayne - 5 years ago

    I Love

  • Mandi - 5 years ago

    I thought you could submit names. Mine are Mischka (little tiger or little bear) and Meeko (beautiful eyes).

  • Dawn Griffin - 5 years ago

    I, too, thought a name for each was to be submitted. I would have entered Nick & Nellie, or Nick & Stella - simply basic names and easy to pronounce.

  • Sheila Woods - 5 years ago

    I think they should be named with reference to Baltimore. Like Chessie & Charm.

  • Jek Porkins - 5 years ago

    Luke and Leia, the only winning choice.

  • Diane Barbrey - 5 years ago

    I think we should go back in time and name them Ricky and Lucy or Fred and Ethel from most popular TV show I Love Lucy

  • sherry Cole - 5 years ago

    Since the lions are from Africa(not space!), why not honor them with African names so Kulu and Madea make more sense. We could also honor Nelson Mandela by calling them Madiba and Mandela!

  • miosty rivers - 5 years ago

    I thought we were suppose to submit names...not chose from the above mentioned! Anyway, I thought it would be cute to name them Rhett and Scarlett or Hebe and Shebe....Oh well, it was just a thought. they are so adorable whatever name is chosen. Gotta love the little furballs !

  • durk - 5 years ago

    Lear and Circe? y u no Jaime and Cersei?

  • Darth Vader - 5 years ago

    Join me and together we can rule the Jungle like father and son... and daughter

  • Julie Stack - 5 years ago

    It would be even more fun if we could send in our name suggestions-I would've named them Sasha and Spike.

  • rose federline - 5 years ago

    I think they should name them Simba and Nala or

  • Rich - 5 years ago

    Andrew Young, you nailed it, anything else is too trite. PERFECT!!!

  • Gladys - 5 years ago

    They are adorable and their names should be Milam and Milan

  • Jeffery Lin - 5 years ago

    Luke and Leia! I like star wars!

  • Samantha - 5 years ago

    Lion king: Simba and Nala

  • natalie jamie litofsky - 5 years ago

    I thank you should call them Lee and Natalie

  • natalie jamie litofsky - 5 years ago

    I thank you should call them Lee and Natalie

  • Charles - 5 years ago

    I am suggesting the names "Nelson" and "Mandella" in respect to one of the greatest leaders of men of whom was memorialized by world leaders today. These cubs can be a living memorial, here in Baltimroe to be cherished and proud of in honor of the late Nelson Mandella.

  • victoria janet - 5 years ago

    I think that they should of haved more options or you were allowed to pick anything I picked bart and maggie because lions are tough and in the simpsins bart and maggie are tough to. They should bring the zoo keeepers with the lions to a talk show so if you want to see them you might be able to go to the talk show and see them. I think that they should of also let the news
    caster go on when other people are aloud to go because that was not fair.

  • Sharon - 5 years ago

    Why just 4 names to choose from? My choice would've been Simba and Nala!!

  • Lee Hartman - 5 years ago

    I think the names should be RAVEN for a girl and ORIOLE for a boy.

  • Karen - 5 years ago

    Didn't anyone suggest Athena and Zeus? That way the names would be covered A - Z!

  • Tracey - 5 years ago

    I am not sure why the choices are so limited - I know on Facebook I saw many different suggestions. I voted for Luke and Leia only because I liked it best out of my choices given, but I would have looked for something better. Even Simba and Nala seemed more fitting than the Star Wars reference! That seems so outdated at the moment. Jaime and Cersei from Game of Thrones would have been more current. What about something Baltimore related? Again, I would like to have had more choices...

  • carol - 5 years ago

    Who picked the names to vote on? I think Mandibia and Liberty is more fitting. cj

  • Debbie - 5 years ago

    They are so adorable. Since they were born in October they need names fitting of that season. I was thinking of Fall and Autumn! Also since it is Halloween that month I was thinking Casper and Wendy!

  • Guy Buchler - 5 years ago

    Since their Mothers tragic death, I like ShePaw for her and ShePat for the male. Sounds more Liony!

  • Molly - 5 years ago

    I wish I could vote for Simba and Nala. :( I'm surprised it wasn't an option.

  • Kimberly - 5 years ago

    I'm throwing my vote in for Simba & Nala as well. :-)

  • Dylan VanCamp - 5 years ago

    I like Bonnie and Clyde

  • Lillian Sawyer - 5 years ago

    I think given the tragedy of their mom and their survival out of the 4, the names should be Miracle and Angel :)

  • nancy wanner - 5 years ago

    I would like to name them Oriole and Raven

  • Cheryl Thayer - 5 years ago

    I would vote for Simba and Nala after the lion King, it would be very cute in my book.

  • Donald Stevens - 5 years ago

    I would like to name lion Simba and Nala because I love lion king movie.

  • Robin - 5 years ago

    Tho' the names offered are nice, could you also consider, Micah for the young male and Myah for the young female? Since they ARE twins/siblings THEY are close ....... and so are the names !! Just a loving thought! Thanks ..... may God & Mother Nature bless and nurture them!!

  • bonnie and tim - 5 years ago

    we think they should be called Natty and Boh . After all they are from Charm City

  • yolo12345678 - 5 years ago

    I think they should be Simba and Nala

  • Octavia - 5 years ago

    can you name lion after lion king Simba Nala

  • Corey - 5 years ago

    Why not name the boy Jaime and the girl Cersei in reference to "A Game of Thrones" or Carl and Judith in reference to "The Walking Dead"?

  • Verna Hickinson - 5 years ago

    I like Manny for the boy and Dela for the girl in honor of Nelson Mandela.

  • Emma Craig and Katrina Stanton-Craig - 5 years ago

    We are partial to Simba and Nala, a tribute to the The Lion King. My daughter is an avid Disney fan!

  • Dawn - 5 years ago

    I think the names Samson and Deliah show their personalities. Glad to see others feel the same!

  • lakaiya - 5 years ago

    I think they should be called prince & princess

  • johanna - 5 years ago

    also linzy & kinzy

  • RSMS - 5 years ago

    Raven (Girl) and Oriole (Boy)... [can't help it... charm city fan... first lion cubs ;) !]

  • DJ - 5 years ago

    You can also name them Sampson and Deliah

  • BRENDA SANDOVAL - 5 years ago


  • isaiah2410 - 5 years ago

    The boy should be named chrisand boy meg

  • Beverly Lee - 5 years ago

    I, think girl name should be Tammy & the Boy Toy

  • Martin Tallon - 5 years ago

    I think they should invite Pres. Obama to name them Nelson and Mandela when he returns from the funeral in S. Africa.

  • ???? - 5 years ago

    i think the boy should be leo and the girl leia

  • Rosemary Prophet - 5 years ago

    I know I didn't vote in the original contest but I think the male lion should be named Leonardo and the female should be Leona. Just my two cents worth. None of the choices to vote for do not seem appropriate for lions.
