Voting result

Hennes‘ kids named Marie and Luise

1. FC Köln fans and the Kölner Zoo have decided upon the names for Hennes‘ kids. The two small female kids will be called Marie and Luise, as a mark of respect to Köln Karneval legend, Marie-Luise Nikuta who passed away recently.

The voting results were one-sided. On the social channels, FC asked the fans to vote for their favourite pair of names for Hennes’ kids. Beforehand, there were over 2,000 names put forward before being cut down to three. Those were:

Marie and Luise
Hope and Faith
Lotte and Florentina

With a clear majority, the FC and Zoo fans decided on the names of Marie and Luise. More than 7,500 fans took part across all of the channels. Marie and Luise claimed victory on all, aside from the English Facebook. The kids will now always be a member of the recently passed Karneval legend, Marie-Luise Nikuta – as many fans wished.

“They are developing well”

The two kids are currently in the petting zoo area of the Clemenshof-Bauernhofs in the Zoo. Due to the Coronavirus, there are currently no visitors permitted into the Zoo. Marie is the kid with the black feet, Luise is the slightly bigger of the two. “The names fit really well,” said Bernd Marcordes, Keeper at the Zoo. “The two kids are growing quickly and are developing well. They’re having fun playing with the other young animals.”
