TYLER, TX (KLTV) - An East Texas zoo is asking for your help in order to choose the right names for their newest residents.

Four baby lions now call Caldwell Zoo in Tyler their home. The male cub has officially been named "Doc" in honor of the zoo's long-time veterinarian, Dr. Steve Wilson, but the three little lady cubs still need names.

The zoo is asking East Texans to choose three names from the list below. To submit your choices, visit the Caldwell Zoo Facebook page, email them to info@caldwellzoo.org or stop by the zoo's visitor services center!

Possible name choices for the female cubs include:
  • Imara (eh-mar-ah) - meaning strong one
  • Malika (ma-lee-ka) - meaning angel
  • Zuri - meaning beautiful
  • Adanna (ah-dan-nah) - meaning father’s daughter
  • Makena (ma-kee-nah) - meaning happy one
  • Zola - meaning quiet, tranquil
  • Aziza (ah-zee-zah) - meaning darling, respected
  • Damisi (dah-mee-see) - meaning happy
  • Amira (ah-mir-ah) - meaning princess
  • Azima (ah-zee-mah) - meaning mighty
  • Mboga (em-boga) - meaning groceries

Votes need to be submitted by March 20. The winning names will be announced on March 24.
