Lion Cubs at Smithsonian’s National Zoo Test Out Yard

Recently, seven lion cubs born at the National Zoo were given names and made their debut in the lion yard. The cubs, born on august 31, 2010 received names with special meaning and significance. The names are John, named after Zoo director John Berry; Fahari meaning “magnificent” in Swahili; Zuri, meaning “beautiful” in Swahili; Lelie, the winning female name from the “Name a Cub: Cam Contest”; Baruti, the winning male name from the “Name a Cub: Cam Contest”; Aslan, named after The Chronicles of Narnia movies; and Luska,  a tribute to the beloved 18-year-old lioness that died at the Zoo last January.
