The Central Library’s Children’s Library lion cubs are nameless no more. Earlier this week, a ceremony was held to name the cubs and honor the children who won the naming contest. Seven children submitted the three winning names: Leon, Cubby, and Dandelion. The winners met Boston Public Library president Amy Ryan and received a prize packet. Below are some of their inspirations for the names:
Eve: “I named you Cubby because you rhyme with chubby. And you’re a little chubby.”
Maddie: “I named you Cubby because you are a very cute lion cub.”
Maia on Dandelion’s name: “I picked you because you look yellow.”
Lucia: “I chose Leon because it’s a special name and not that many lions have that name.”
