Names of YOG Mascots

The Singapore Youth Olympic Games organisers are looking for names for Singapore's first Youth Olympic Games YOG Mascot Naming Contest.

There will be TWO (2) mascots in the coming Youth Olympic Games.

In this Names of YOG Mascots contest, everyone is invited to submit possible names for our YOG mascots. Organisers are looking for names which are youthful, relevant, unique and easy to pronounce. Names must be submitted in a pair and accompanied by a short writeup on the rationale (not more than 500 characters).

To get you started, here's a description of the mascots in this Name of YOG Mascot contest:
