Zookeeper Report…Help Us

She needs a name!

We are looking for a meaningful name for the female lion cub.  When you visit the zoo, stop by Parakeet Landing before 4pm to submit a name.  She is a very intelligent, resourceful and playful alpha female.  We are looking for a name that has a great meaning and will fit her personality.  Her brother has been named L.J. after his father Leroy.  Help Us….the person who submits the winning name will receive 2 general admission tickets to the zoo and a lion plush animal.

    Southwick’s Zoe

  3. Jessica Jones says:

    Luna would be a great name for a female lion or Sakari!

  4. I think her name should also be associated with her mom like L.J. is associated with his dad. I think she should be named Sage. The first two letters stand for her mom Savannah. The g for grace and the e for everyone’s cub

  5. Elyse Bouchard says:

    I think the name should be America because we are one nation and America is a pretty name for a lion!

    Hi Everyone!! I cannot wait to come for a visit….especially to see the new additions to Southwick family!!! My idea for a name for this beautiful baby is….Nevaeh…it is Heaven backwards…so I think since she is a gift from God, her name should mean something special!!! If you pick this for her name…please do let me know…that would be awesome and I would be so honored that you liked it!!! Thanks so much!!! Big Hugs, Sheila V.

    ELLIE – a nice female name that carries on the “L” from Leroy.

    Others named Ellie or Eleanor:

    Eleanor E. Seiling, the founder and president of United Action for Animals Inc.

    First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt: “It seems to me of great importance to teach children respect for life. Towards this end, experiments on living animals in classrooms should be stopped. To encourage cruelty in the name of science can only destroy the finer emotions of affection and sympathy, and breed an unfeeling callousness in the young towards suffering in all living creatures.”

    I think Usisi is a pretty name — It is Zulu for sister

  15. Laura Puglia says:


    Meaning in the name Zahaira – You have aspiration and inspiration, hope and guidance. Since you are intuitive and perceptive and you understand human nature.

  16. Heather Burnet says:
