Heavenly branch names in english


I'm looking for the English name for the 1957 Ding You rooster. I know it's a yin fire/metal rooster. For example, I know I'm a Tiger Passing Through the Forest, born in 1962, and I know my cousin, the 1950 tiger, is Tiger Coming Down The Mountain. I know there's a Horse In The Hall in the horse sign. Where can I find an easy list of the English names for each heavenly sign, all five names for each of the 12 animals?
