Lion Cubs Need Names

The Maryland Zoo has a couple of newborn lion cubs in house, and the zoo is having the public vote on their names.

http://www.zooborns.com/zooborns/2013/12/maryland-zoo-zoo-lions.html

Cute cubs, and I like getting the public involved in naming them... but really, are those the best choices they could come up with?  Bart and Maggie?  Luke and Leia?  Not the least bit lion-ish, I says.

Let's start a write-in campaign for "Jaime and Cersei."

Too late. The notice says that voting is closed.

Sadly, it looks like voting ended yesterday. :(

Because otherwise, I was going to write those in!

I somehow doubt that the zoo wants some new lion cubs named "Joffrey", "Tommen" and "Myrcella" who will be born of incest in a couple of years.

I hope they're not given any Tritonia Khaleesi to eat.

Silly me, I thought this was a reference to the upcoming Lions vs Giants Game...

Jaime and Cersei? Aren't captive lions already inbred enough?

Not that the winning names of Luke and Leia don't also make you wonder. :O

They announced the names of the cubs today! The people of Maryland chose Luke and Leia. Not quite as incestuous as Jaime and Cersei, but still with that little bit of discomfort that comes from kissing your brother.

I hope they don't end up eating any wolf cubs...

Luke and Lea is as obvious as white snow in winter. I want golden snow, fresh climate, things we do for love.

These contests are almost always fixed anyway.

In other naming news, have you posted/seen the new sea slug named Tritonia khaleesi, inspired by your very own Daenerys?

Don't worry, it's just Maryland, and they're all a bunch of Edgar Allen Poe fans there (...and apparently Star Wars). If it were a zoo in Santa Fe or NYC they'd totally name them after the Lannister twins.

Maybe they'll change their minds if later on their mother ever gives birth to a dwarf lion...

In the jungle, the mighty jungle
Wouldn't that be jinxing them?
