Two little girl tiger cubs were born this summer at the Milwaukee County Zoo! (a special place b/c my mommie grew up there- no, not AT the zoo but visited when she was little. geesh!)
The Zoo held a special naming contest for the cubs, and the winner was Ashley Goffin, a graduate student at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Goffin attended school in Durban, South Africa, where she worked with orphan children. The children helped her learn some of their native language, isiZulu. “Tula” means “quiet.” It can have multiple interpretations such as “all is quiet,” inferring a great sense of calm with the birth. “Nuri” means “my flame,” and is Hebrew in origin.
Awww she looks like a tula.. cute, quiet, fuzzy, wild, big ears, big teefers.. ok ok we're getting off track! Here I thought my name was a combination of Kuma=bear (japanese) and Tala= wolf (native american). I think i like the African meaning bettah!
hmmm...What does your name mean?
