Scar. It likely is not his birth name, but is his only canon name and only official name by Disney itself. His actual name is Taka.. There are TLK books but they are well out …of my budget. That's his name in the books though, it's called 'A Tale of Two Brothers' (MORE)
The only lionesses that are named in The Lion King are Nala, Sarabi, and Sarafina. Nala is Simba's friend. Sarabi is Simba's mother, and Mufasa's mate. The movie doesn't tel…l what Nala's mom's name is, but the end credits states her name is Sarafina. (MORE)
There are more than two lions in The Lion King so whichever two do you mean is unclear, so to answer the question, here are all the official lion characters from the official …The Lion King which is the movie universe only. The names and who they are in the films: The Lion King: Simba (the prince), Nala (Simba's best friend and future queen), Mufasa and Sarabi (Simba's parents as in the king and the queen), Sarafina (Nala's mother, Nala's father is officially unknown), Scar (Simba's uncle and Mufasa's brother.) The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride : New characters are: Kiara is Simba and Nala's daughter and their first and only child. Zira is a grown up female lion whose official origin besides that she belonged to Scar's pride, is unknown, but there are several fan theories. Kovu is Zira's youngest child and the last born before Simba exiled them after returning and killing Scar. The film states twice that Scar was not Kovu's father. Nuka is Kovu's older brother. Vitani is Kovu's older sister and Nuka's little sister. There are many profit fanfiction books and comics that introduce numerous new lion characters but none of them exist in the official movie universe. (MORE)
The Lion King: Nala (Simba's childhood friend) Sabari (Simba's Mother) I don't think the Movie ever tells you what Nala's Mother name is. Shenzi (Sp? The female Hyena)… The Lion King 1 1/2 I don't the Movie tells you Timon's Mother name And the same characters as above (Nala, Sabari, Shenzi, and Nala's Mother). The Lion King Simba's Pride: Special Edition" Nala Kiara Vitani (Kovu's Sister) Zira (Kovu, Vitani, and Nuka's Mother) (MORE)
Great question! I think even Walt Disney animation studios themselves are undecided about this. The small cub we see at the end of The Lion King looks very different from the …cub we see at the beginning of The Lion King II. Disney came out with a book series called "The Lion King: Six New Adventures" almost immediately after the first movie. In those books, Simba tells a series of stories to his son, Kopa. But when The Lion King II came out, and Simba had a daughter instead, fans wanted to know-- what happened to Kopa? Disney has never come up with an official explanation other than the fact that they decided to go a different direction and give Simba a daughter. So is Kopa real? I don't think anyone really knows. ;-) (MORE)
Officially, she has no identity. As in, the film makers have never revealed any information on her but it's left up to fanfiction. However, there was a children's book titled … The Lion King: Six New Adventures wherein her name is Uru but those are not the film makers' visions and in no way offficially connected to the movie universe's story. (MORE)
Nothing is officially known about Mufasa's mother and father. There is a profit fanfiction book series called "The Six New Adventures" wherein his mother's name is Uru, but th…ose really are only fanfiction books, not official to the movie universe. As the book universe is made of several story books which contents contradict each other, including "The Six New Adventures". Also, the first film's makers have denied the existence of the main chatacter from the books wherein Uru exists, so they have denied also Uru and everything else about the books. Officially Mufasa's parents identities are not known. (MORE)
Sarabi - She is Simba's mother as well as Mufasa's mate making her Queen of the Pridelands at the beginning of The Lion King. Sarafina - She is Nala and Mheetu's mother …(Mheetu was Nala's little brother who does not appear in the films as he was removed from the final script). Her mate is unknown, probably a roaming lone male. She is Sarabi's best friend. Her name is never mentioned though appears in the end credts. She is said to have appeared in The Lion King II and her only line was, "My, how you've grown!" when Kiara is about to go on her first hunt. Nala - She is mother of Kiara in The Lion King II . She is Simba's mate and Queen of the Pridelands after Sarabi. She appears in all three films. Also, she is the mother of Kopa in The Lion King: Six New Adventures , but Kopa is non-existent in the Lion King movie universe and is never mentioned in the films, as the book was separate from the actual film franchise. It is said that Kopa appeared in the first film as the new cub shown in the last clip, but was killed by Zira to avenge Scar, another reason she was banished, and it was soon after that Kiara was born. But this was never confirmed by the producers and writers, so it remains untrue. Zira - She is mother to Nuka, Vitani, and Kovu in The Lion King II . She is said to be Scar's mate, but it was never officially stated in the film, though it is certain she was. She is the leader to her own pride of followers who she must have got on her side to believe in Scar's ways. She appears only in the second Lion King film and sadly dies at the end after realising her mistakes. (MORE)

If refering to the cub at the end of The Lion King movie, it's most officially called "Fluffy" and it has no gender nor real name. Hence the commentary track of the film on …which the producer and directors of the film talk about the cub. But, the only official movie sequel blended "Fluffy" with Kiara in official content (the film's official trailer), thus the cub's most official identity and name, is Kiara . (MORE)
