The Elmwood Park Zoo's newest duo officially have names.

The internet has proven to be great at naming things (Who can forget Boaty McBoatface for a British ship?). A Philadelphia-area zoo knows this and wants the public to suggest names for its newborn jaguars.

On Wednesday, the Elmwood Park Zoo officially launched a naming contest for two jaguars. In January, the mother, Inka, gave birth to both a male and a female cub. Zoo officials said the newborns are healthy but need names.

"Both cubs are becoming increasingly active and are becoming quite the handful," the zoo said.

At almost 11 pounds, the male cub is 1 pound heavier than his sister and has a darker nose and a darker coat. He is also the "more adventurous" of the two.

If you have any good suggestions, feel free to email the zoo here by 4 p.m. on Wednesday, March 15.

However, don't plan on going to see the newborn cubs anytime soon. The public will not be able to see the animals until the summer.
