They’re woolly, cuddly and cute … but sadly anonymous.

These three-week-old twin lambs are some of the newest residents at Wagga’s Botanic Gardens zoo, but they are yet to be named.

So Wagga City Council has launched a competition, asking the public to come up with the perfect monikers for the brother and sister.

So far, more than 100 entries have been received, and the competition will remain open until September 21.

“The Wagga community has suggested a range of names, from the cute and cuddly to funny and the wel thought out. Selecting a winning name combination is going to be a very hard task.”  council’s supervisor for horticulture Henry Pavitt said.

Council’s Facebook page is running hot with suggested names, from Basil and Rosemary or Greek and Mint to Arthur and Martha..
