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

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?
