(INDIANAPOLIS) -The votes are in and the public has chosen the names for the Indianapolis Zoo's newborn African lion cubs.

Voters in a Facebook poll chose to name the new trio Enzi (ehn-ZEE), meaning "powerful"; Mashaka (mash-AH-kah), meaning "troublemaker"; and Sukari (sue-CAR-ee), meaning "sweet".

The mother and cubs remain in a private area behind the scenes to protect the newborns' health. They are slated to debut in spring 2016.
