Mariah Carey's Son Moroccan Tops 2011's Worst Celeb Baby Name List

Mon, January 2, 2012 9:01am EST by 13 Comments

Moroccan, Bear Blu, Zuzu — these celeb kids’ names were voted the WORST baby names of the year! Do you agree?

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon apparently have terrible taste in names! The couple’s son Moroccan tied with Alicia Silverstone’s son’s name Bear Blu for the worst boy’s name of the year, according to Ministry of Gossip. More than 10,000 visitors to BabyNames.com voted on the worst and best names of the year.

Although Moroccan was voted worst boy’s name, Monroe was spared from the list. The “winner” was Zuzu Audrey Peterson, the daughter of pastry chef Tania Peterson and her husband Phil.

On the bright side, some celebs have better judgment at baby naming. Pink and Carey Hart’s daughter Willow topped the poll for best celebrity girl’s name. The best boy’s name was Mason Evan Smith — the son of rapper Ne-Yo and girlfriend Monyetta Shaw.

And great minds think alike: Neil Patrick Harris, Tiffani Theissen and the Beckhams all chose the name Harper, which is now the 10th most-popular name of 2011.

What do YOU think were the best and worst baby names of the year?

@crazynames: ALL names were plain stupid the first time. Take Mike for instance. It comes from Michael (a good christian name) and means: who is like God? in hebrew. It’s a goddamn question not a name for a boy! That’s what you probably would have said back then ;-)

@michelle: if Moroccan is stupid, than Christian should be stupid as well. Both refer to someone rather than something.

Bottom-line: it’s okay if you belong to the majority, but please don’t
criticize on innovators who keep life interesting for all of us ;-)

PS I love the name Roc! I heard it a few times when I was in Barcelona. It’s a common name in that region and it means Rest! I understand mc and nc will call him Roc.

I don’t think Zuzu is bad at all… that was the name of George Bailey’s youngest daughter in It’s a Wonderful Life. I’ve heard is means “Graceful Lily” in Slavic.

I think it would also make sense as a nickname for Susan, Susanna, etc. which mean “Lily.”

Moroccan is stupid; Morocco would have been better.

Bear Blu is stupid. One or the other paired with something else could have been okay… but the combo is too much.

People shut up Morrocan is after the room where Nick asked Mariah To Marry him nearly 4 years ago and naming a child after someone you admire isn’t stupid/crazy it’s actually normal. besides Monroe isn’t only named after Marilyn she’s also named to honor Mariah’s irish heritage that’s like if somebody named their daughter Lara it would probably be after the female lead Character in Dr Zhivago or if somebody named a boy Francis after Frank Galvin the lawyer in the Verdict nobody would cry fowl because the film was nominated for academy awards. there’s always been strange names in the entertainment industry why do you think most celebs back in the day didn’t use their real names Lana Turners Real name for example was Julia Jean Mildred Frances
or Barbara Stanwyck’s was Ruby Catherine Stevens ect.

I can’t believe people name their kids Bear, Apple, Bentley, Moroccan, Zuzu… I mean this is what happens when trashy/tacky losers get rich… They spread their tackyness and lack of good taste. Disgusting, seems like they look at their children as dolls and not real humans.

this is wrong on so many levels at least Moroccan has a neaming behind it unlike Bear Blu. the press should quit throwing stones at Mariah for everything she does. particularly considering her and the twins almost didn’t survive her pregnancy and their premature birth. all that matters is their healthy & happy now

hahaha so true – Im a huuuuge MC fann but the name is NOT A NAME!!! It best describes a person from country MOROCCO DAMN IT! In Mariah’s defence she didn’t pick it – she chose Monroe and Nick chose Moroccan.
