Name The Panda & Win Festival Tickets

The PandaFam moved to Hong Kong from the small village of Dingle in Ireland 10 years ago.
They now live in the small village of Sheung Wan, on Hong Kong Island. The only problem is, none of the PandaFam, apart from Padraig, have a name that's reconisable to human.

Can you please help to name the PandaFam? Panda Mumma said whoever comes up with the best names WINS a pair of festival tickets!
