Mariah Carey And Nick Cannon Reveal Their Twins' Names! You Will NEVER Guess!

Wed, May 4, 2011 12:40pm EDT by 8 Comments

We knew that Mariah and Nick’s babies’ names started with an ‘M,’ and now we FINALLY know what they are!

You won’t believe what Mariah Carey, 42, and Nick Cannon, 30, named their newborn twins! See what the couple decided on after the jump!

Ready for it? The girl’s name is Monroe Cannon, named after Marilyn Monroe, and the boy’s name is Moroccan Scott Cannon, nickname “Roc.” “Scott” stands for Nick’s middle name and his grandmother’s maiden name.

Moroccan also represents the top tier of Mariah’s New York City apartment, which is called the Moroccan Room, because of the Moroccan-inspired decor. Nick proposed to Mariah in the room too!

Baby Monroe does not have a middle name because Mariah doesn’t have one — girls unite! But, considering she was named after Mariah’s lifelong inspiration, Marilyn, we’re sure she’ll be A-OK!

“It has been a long, emotional journey for this family,” Mariah’s rep, Cindi Berger, tells CNN, “and I couldn’t be happier for all of them.”

Congrats to the new parents and the twins, who have pretty cool names!

I LOVE THE NAME’S! Mariah and Nick seem so down to earth and normal its kinda typical they would chose names that actually mean something to them. Unlike naming your kid ‘apple’. I mean come on! Thats soo uninventive and probably came to them when they ate an apple after popping the kid out! Anyway, I glad they have normal-ish names that are special to the family. CONGRATS!

I like Monroe, not to sure on Moroccan (although the nickname Roc seems cute!). Each to their own I suppose!

i agree. like monroe, but moroccan is not my cup. nobody will say all those syllables, and let’s just hope his friends don’t nickname him “mo” instead of “roc”! but, i love this family for some reason, regardless of that name choice… with mariah, i was afraid of what was going to come out, so moroccan ain’t all that bad, i suppose!
