Indianapolis, Indiana – Hoosiers have a chance to help the Indianapolis Zoo name two boys and a girl tiger, that were born to mother Zoya and father Pavel on May 27.

One of the male cubs has been named Nicolas in honor of the veterinary surgeon who helped with the delivery.

The zoo has already created a list of names for the other two cubs and is asking for people to vote for their favorites.

Names for the girl cub include:

• Helina
• Vesna
• Yeva

Names for the boy cub include:

• Jarek
• Kuzma
• Roman

On July 28 at midnight, the contest will close and the official names will be released the next day, International Tiger Day.
