ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- A couple of weeks ago we told you about two grizzly bears coming to the St. Louis zoo by the middle of next year. The brother and sister are orphans from Montana.

The zoo conducted an online vote to name the bears and now we know the winning names.

After nearly 14,000 votes the boy grizzly will be called Huckleberry or Huck.

The winning name for his sister is Finley or Finn.

So, the salute to Mark Twain wins.
