The first surviving pair of giant panda twins ever born in the U.S. have now been named.

They were born in July at Zoo Atlanta. Following Chinese tradition, they were not named for 100 days.

The zoo held a national vote to select the names. They are Mei Lun and Mei Huan.

The names mean "something indescribably beautiful and magnificent."
