Mariah Carey Baby Names: Moroccan and Monroe Cannon!

by at . Comments

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon welcomed twins Saturday, April 30, their third wedding anniversary. Now they have revealed their newborns' names:

Moroccan Scott Cannon and Monroe Cannon!

Certainly different, but here's the meaning of each:

As reported on Carey's official blog, their son's name is Moroccan Scott Cannon. Scott is Nick's middle name and his grandmother's maiden name.

And as for the unusual first name? The top tier of Carey's NYC apartment is called the Moroccan Room, because of its Moroccan-inspired decor.

It's also where Cannon proposed to her in 2008.

The couple's daughter's name is Monroe Cannon.

The baby girl was named after Marilyn Monroe, an inspiration to Carey, and has no middle name because Mariah doesn't have one either.

Interesting all around. Congratulations again to the family!


Great. The boy is named an adjective and the girl is named after a tramp. He's gonna get his @ss beat at school and up on drugs. And she's going to be a knocked-up teen on the Celebrity Teen Mom show there shall surely someday be.


oh yeah i would like to congratulate them both on their twins. good luck to them both. and very wonderful names.


My Middle name Has Some Meaning Lynn. My Mom Named My Middle Name After Her Cousin who means alot to her. so i have her middle name sake. i think it's neat how people and my mum name their kids after someone who they love so much.


Beautiful names and I bet they are cute


I don't think these names can be added to a list of crazy celeb names because Monroe is actually also considered a girls name and Moroccan has special meaning to both of them. And the nicknames Roc and Roe are pretty awesome. In the guessing game I guess Monroe and Scott I actually did think of Morocco but not Moroccan. Congrats to the couple and i'm sure their kids will have a wonderful life.


Aw, how cute! Good luck mariah, nick, moroccan scott and monroe! =)


Aw, how cute! Good luck mariah, nick, moroccan scott and monroe!


Considering most celebraties seem to think they can name their children any damn type of name(without the backstories I'm sure) these are pretty cute.


i like it sounds awsome to me


I think this is beautiful:) congrats to them both on the babies and i love the name choice and the stories behind them. All we can do now is wait to see how these cuties turn out
