You voted - the Great Lakes Aquarium listened: the aquarium’s two new river otters now have names.

Duluth's aquarium says on their website that nearly 5,000 people voted in the online poll, choosing between five different sets of names: Cajun and Creole; Chinook and Nodin; Cascade and Tette; Agate and Ore; Seiche and Riffle.

The two otters were rescued from live traps in Louisiana and could not be released back into the wild.

Their Louisiana roots explain the fairly close vote between bayou and Northland-rooted names.

Agate and Ore, however, pulled out the victory in the end.
