Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon reveal baby names

Mariah Carey and her husband Nick Cannon have finally revealed the names of their twins who were born in Los Angeles on Saturday.

Their son is named Moroccan Scott Cannon, with the nickname "Roc". Scott is Nick’s middle name, as well as his grandmother’s maiden name.

The top tier of Mariah’s New York City apartment is called the Moroccan Room, because of the Moroccan-inspired decor. It’s also the place where Nick proposed to his wife, overlooking Manhattan!

Their daughter’s name is Monroe Cannon. Mariah's rep says she does not have a middle name because Mariah herself does not have one. Monroe was named after Marilyn Monroe, who has been an inspiration to Mariah her whole life.

In fact, Mariah purchased the Hollywood icon’s white piano from Christie's auction house and it is in Mariah’s will that the piano will one day go to the Smithsonian.

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

    May I simply just say what a relief to uncover someone that actually knows what they are discussing over the internet. You definitely understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More people ought to read this and understand this side of your story. It's surprising you are not more popular because you most certainly have the gift.

    Where did Adam and Eve ( no last name) ever get the idea to name their sons Cain and Abel? They made up those names. No wonder one killed his brother.
    They didn't like George & Jeb. Fine American names.
    And Mary and Joe David spelling their son's name with a " J " instead of a " G "
    The correct spelling is Gee Zeus. What were they thinking? Some one save this kid

    The ones that really bother me the most for some reason are J. Lo's. On the surface, they're totally normal names. However, if you have kids of a certain age, you know Max and Emmy are the names of the kids on a cartoon called Dragon Tales. At least Mariah and Nick's have some originality and sentimental meaning. To steal them from a cartoon??? That's just lazy. It should be a big deal and you should put some thought into them. I'd say they did. They're weird as heck, sure...but at least they put in a little effort.

    So, I guess if we have another kid it should be named Royal Decameron. Haha, that's where my husband proposed to me. I guess it's better than Radisson Decapolis, where the original plan to propose was! They could've shortened Moroccan to 'rocco' and it would have been a half way normal sounding name.

    Morroccan is ok if you like leather wallets. Monroe is the name of a character in the old TV show "too close for comfort"\
    There are worse names then the ones the babies were given. Besides they can always change their names when they become adults. I wish the best of good health and happiness to Mariah and Nick and their babies but I am skeptical about their marriage lasting a long time. She is 12 yrs older then him. Oh well time will tell.

    Poor kids. Using this truly twisted logic, my children would've been named Dandy Don Hawke and Holly Baton Rouge Hawke. And why would someone look up to Marilyn Monroe? She was uneducated, married several times, and if the tabloids are even half right she was promiscuous. So are the happy couple going to be thrilled if their little girl grows up to be like Marilyn Monroe? Never mind how the little boy will turn out-being named for a room.

    To each their own, not a huge fan of "Morrocan" or "Roc" (he may go by "Mo") as a name, but at least they have meaning to them. I like that my mother named me based on the meaning and not how it sounds to others or if it was trendy!

    They actually did a survey once(I use they 'cuz I'm not sure exactly who did the survey) and they proved that people with 'weird' names actually do grow up having self esteem issues and are more likely to be depressed or commit suicide. Not sure the actual statistic, but I know it's true. I hope the kids grow up to like their names. I think Monroe is actually a pretty cool name myself.

    It's getting to the point that actually respect an actor/whatever who gives their kid a normal name! Seems like all of these loons has to come up with something even more weird. And later they wonder why their kids are so screwed up. So if he propsed in her craft room or the bathroom would she name the kid craft or bath? so stupid.

    Black people come up with THE stupidest names – by far. I once knew a woman who named her kids Pajama and LaTrine. In the military, Latrine is what they call the "toilet." Whatever they can do to get attention, even by having a ridcuous name, they'll do it.

    Because Mariah does not have a middle name, she deprived her daughter of same? Guess she doesn't want her daughter to be better than her, not that a middle name makes one a better person. There will be lots of RAP music about these names.

    Giving a child an odd name that you never plan to use in full (he shall be Roc, say they) is nothing but a "look at me I'm so original" thing. Save that for your pets. You gave birth to a human, presumably, and he is more than an extension of your egos.

    Ditto for the name Monroe. The last-name-as-a-first-name thing for girls began as an attempt to seem "old-money." Now it comes across and an announcement that the parents are insecure. For heaven's sake, it wasn't even MM's real name. If you really want people to know that you think you are MM, Mariah, call your daughter Marilyn.

    Anyone else notice how MC and NC look an awful lot alike?

Frank Zappa named his children "Dweezil" and "Moon Unit" and they grew up to be fine. These children will be okay. Congrats to the happy couple.

As to whether the names sound feminie or masculine, that's been going on for years. Is Logan and Carson for boys or girls? My eight year old daughters' have boy and girl friends with those names.

      Firstly I want to say to everyone who teased the names of Mariah's babies, really should grow up and live their own lives. You really do not need to insult other people to make yourself feel better about yourself! And everyone of you who called Tiffany Newkirk a retard or anything like that, should really be ashamed of themselves! You really are not as awesome as you think you are and you need to come back to earth! Remember the higher you fly, the harder the fall will be... I really hope that my words made someone think a bit before they just try to crush somebody else!

    I can understand the Monroe, doesn't really sound too girly though but Moroccan? Because her apartment is called the Moroccan Room? Why not just go with Scott Canon? I wish them the best but her mother didn't stick her with a wierd name.

      Everyone needs to stop complaining of kids that AREN'T THEIRS! Name your own children whatever feels appropriate to you, but don't go complaining about other parents' choices in names. I'm sure neither Nick or Mariah give a damn what you think anyways.

      Can we please wipe out the word "Haters" from our vernacular? It's nauseatingly overused, and whenever someone has a different opinion, that word is screamed out. Seriously, it's time to put that lame word to rest.

      It's true – "haters" is overused and often misused. We are talking about opinions and there is no right or wrong opinion, so there is no 'haters'. But usually the less intelligent you are the more you swear and misuse words.

    Moroccan Cannon is not a great sounding name. Hopefully the kid gets a nickname or goes by his middle name.

      Agreed.... I thought the same thing. When naming a child, you need to take into consideration the sound of the first and last name together. The "can" at the end of the first name and at the beginning of the last".... "can can"? Seriously. I don't care if they're going to call him Roc or not, then he'll be "Roc Cannon" ... end of the first is still the same sound as the beginning of the last name. Maybe he can hyphenate it and go by "Roc Carey Cannon." Cause, you know, that sounds SO much better. *eyeroll*

      People need to read the article. They didn't "mess up" and name their kid Moroccan instead of Morocco by accident. He's named after the room in their apartment where Nick proposed to her. I still hate the name, but at least they had a reason that means something to them. It's not just celebrities that name their kids weird names. My daughter has a Trayt and a Cloye (Chloe) in her class. Our next door neighbor has a son named Yorton. Seriously. Even Morocco is better than that, I don't care what the reason is!

      While not a huge fan of the names, I do love that they chose names that were meaningful to THEM. For all of you critics, feel free to name your children whatever you wish after you shoot them out of your crotch. Until then... leave the happy new parents alone!

      Oh boy did you nail that right!!! What is up with these people? Look at the names that Demi Moore named her girls? Ya got Zuma, Apple, Suri, Viviene Marchelene, Moses, Maddox, Pax, Sparrow? Now I like unusual names, my cat's names are not exactly Garfield and Kitty, I have Phaedra Leigh, Nyanna Marie and Dariah Jo, but at least they won't be picked on and turn into Hollyweird brats later on like some of their parents. Granted, all these kids will have more money than they could ever spend just like their parents and Nicole Ritchie was a Vicodin addict? But the two people I hope that never get pregnant is the two most useless women on the planet, Paris and Lindsay. The only time Paris would pay attention to her kid would be for the paparazzi moments and Lindsay who has the worst parents on the planet, would not even begin to cope with a kid. SO I pray nobody knocks them up.

      actually naming a baby after a room in your house is even dumber than MoroccaN. I think Morocco would've been fine. Maybe I should have named my kid livingroom since that's where my spouse proposed to me.

      Do you guys really have nothing better to do than leave comments on how stupid you think the baby names are??? GET A LIFE! Mariah and Nick are happy with 2 beautiful babies. They are wealthy and will live comfortably indeed. Quit hating on them. They are probably soaking up eachother's presense right now while you all are on here wasting your time worrying about their baby names. Why don't you sign off the computer and worry about your own children.
