It’s Tashi and Gobi

More than 2000 names were suggested for the new snow leopard cubs at the Melbourne Zoo before zookeepers decided on Tashi for the female and Gobi for the male.
Tashi, (I know this as my girl Australian terrier is called Tashi,) is the Tibetan word for lucky.
And Gobi of course, is a large national park in southern Mongolia where the highly endangered snow leopard is found.
