Munich Zoo's newest additions have finally been christened.

The twin cubs were born on the 19th December 2013 and have been given names beginning with 'N', as were all animals born to the zoo in 2013.

Their 'honorary godparents', a businessman and a wildlife photographer, granted the cubs their names, which are Nobby (male) and Nela (female).

Nobby has become famous for 'sticking his tongue out' at photographers.

See the gallery of the gorgeous cubs enjoying life at the zoo below.
