LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Two of the Louisville Zoo's newest residents now have names after the Zoo held an online voting contest.

The two new maned wolf pups will be called Cora and Catina, according to a news release from the Zoo.

"Cora is short for Coração, meaning 'heart' in Portuguese and was submitted by zoo keepers because the pups were born on Valentine's Day," the news release states. "Catina is a Portuguese name for girls meaning 'pure,' though zoo keepers will likely call the wolf 'Cat' for short."

The other sets of names considered were, "Marcelle and Angela," "Ginger and Ruby Rudy," "Winona and Tahshah," and "Ramona and Beatrice."

The two pups are the first maned wolf pups for the Louisville Zoo in 10 years.
