Introducing…. Axcis Andy’s New Lion Friend

At the start of term, Axcis Andy made a new friend, but we had a problem – he didn’t have a name! We asked schools to help us to come up with a great name for him. Find out here who has won, and what name has been selected.

The Competition

We provided schools with some worksheets which they could download and print out for their classes to do. There was a choice between a drawing or a story activity. Lots of students took part, and we received some lovely entries which accompanied some brilliant name suggestions. A few are listed below:


  • Graham
  • Prince
  • Corey
  • Manfred
  • Freddy
  • Zoey
  • Ratooli
  • Jade
  • Simba
  • Narla
  • Smith
  • Simba
  • Fluffy
  • Vladimir

  • Angie
  • Jaydan the fat lion
  • Lionel

  • Jack
  • Harry King
  • Jack

And the winning name is… Lionel!

Proud winner of our Name the Lion competition, Annushka (left) receiving the prize on behalf of Strathmore school, and her consultant, Nicola, right.

It was very difficult to select a name from all of those suggested, but one in particular stood out to us… and that name was… Lionel. The staff and students at Strathmore School are thrilled that their suggestion was chosen as the winner. Nicola, their Axcis consultant went along to the school to present them with their shopping voucher, certificate and fluffy lion toy!
