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

  • CW - 4 months 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

  • William E. Huggins - 4 months ago

    Hello,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 youGOD Bless

  • Tricia - 4 months ago

    I think Tucker and Joe would be good names!

  • Steve Askew - 4 months ago

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

  • Mo - 4 months 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 - 4 months 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 - 4 months ago

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

  • Jen McColigan - 4 months 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 - 4 months 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 - 4 months ago

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

  • Bill Dollar - 4 months 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 TranslationMoyo wangu umefumba toka kuingia weweKama tumba kama tumba hifadhi yako na iweWewe ni ua la mimba na chipukizi na ikuweNa furaha imewamba imekuzunguka weweMoyo wangu umefumbaMy heart you’re enclosed from the time I came inLike a young flower let your shelter beYou are the flower of a pregnancy that springs to growthAnd happiness has wrapped you have been surroundedMy heart you’re enclosed

  • Sir Ackbar - 4 months 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 - 4 months 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 - 4 months ago

    cha cha and salsa

  • AMY - 4 months ago

    My write in vote is Kit and Kaboodle

  • Teech67 - 4 months ago

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

    I submit the male name of Hunter or FosterFemale name Brooks

  • Joan Deppi - 4 months ago

    I submit the male name of Hunter or FosterFemale name Brooks

  • Susan Hatfield - 4 months ago

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

  • Tammi - 4 months ago

    I think their names should be Raven and Oriole!

  • Pam Powell - 4 months ago

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

  • hated - 4 months ago

    shut up about your sob stories

  • Jay - 4 months 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 - 4 months ago


  • Harry - 4 months 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 - 4 months 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 - 4 months 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 - 4 months ago

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

  • margie alexander - 4 months ago

    lela & lionel

  • margie alexander - 4 months ago

    lela & lionel

  • Mike Waal - 4 months ago

    Suggestion for names:Frick and Frack

  • Mark Clark - 4 months ago

    Is it to late to put in names?LIZZIE AND BUBBY

  • Peggy Groseclose - 4 months ago

    I think they should be named Nelson and Mandela.

  • mary - 4 months ago

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

  • Marcellus Carrington - 4 months ago

    "For my ally is the force."

  • Chrissy - 4 months 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 - 4 months 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 - 4 months 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 - 4 months ago

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

  • sal leone - 4 months ago

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

  • Kileen - 4 months ago

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

  • Kileen - 4 months ago

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

  • DPAt - 4 months ago

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

  • Helen Yurevitch - 4 months ago

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

  • S - 4 months 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 - 4 months 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 - 4 months ago

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

  • wayne - 4 months ago

    I Love

  • Mandi - 4 months ago

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

  • Dawn Griffin - 4 months 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 - 4 months ago

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

  • Jek Porkins - 4 months ago

    Luke and Leia, the only winning choice.

  • Diane Barbrey - 4 months 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 - 4 months 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 - 4 months 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 - 4 months ago

    Lear and Circe? y u no Jaime and Cersei?

  • Darth Vader - 4 months ago

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

  • Julie Stack - 4 months 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 - 4 months ago

    I think they should name them Simba and Nala or

  • Rich - 4 months ago

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

  • Gladys - 4 months ago

    They are adorable and their names should be Milam and Milan

  • Jeffery Lin - 4 months ago

    Luke and Leia! I like star wars!

  • Samantha - 4 months ago

    Lion king: Simba and Nala

  • natalie jamie litofsky - 4 months ago

    I thank you should call them Lee and Natalie

  • natalie jamie litofsky - 4 months ago

    I thank you should call them Lee and Natalie

  • Charles - 4 months 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 - 4 months 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 - 4 months ago

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

  • Lee Hartman - 4 months ago

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

  • Karen - 4 months ago

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

  • Tracey - 4 months 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 - 4 months ago

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

  • Debbie - 4 months 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 - 4 months ago

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

  • Molly - 4 months ago

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

  • Kimberly - 4 months ago

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

  • Dylan VanCamp - 4 months ago

    I like Bonnie and Clyde

  • Lillian Sawyer - 4 months 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 - 4 months ago

    I would like to name them Oriole and Raven

  • Cheryl Thayer - 4 months ago

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

  • Donald Stevens - 4 months ago

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

  • Robin - 4 months 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 - 4 months ago

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

  • yolo12345678 - 4 months ago

    I think they should be Simba and Nala

  • Octavia - 4 months ago

    can you name lion after lion king Simba Nala

  • Corey - 4 months 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 - 4 months ago

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

  • Emma Craig and Katrina Stanton-Craig - 4 months ago

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

  • Dawn - 4 months ago

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

  • lakaiya - 4 months ago

    I think they should be called prince & princess

  • johanna - 4 months ago

    also linzy & kinzy

  • RSMS - 4 months ago

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

  • DJ - 4 months ago

    You can also name them Sampson and Deliah

  • BRENDA SANDOVAL - 4 months ago


  • isaiah2410 - 4 months ago

    The boy should be named chrisand boy meg

  • Beverly Lee - 4 months ago

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

  • Martin Tallon - 4 months ago

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

  • ???? - 4 months ago

    i think the boy should be leo and the girl leia

  • Rosemary Prophet - 4 months 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.
