Mariah & Nick Reveal The Names Of Their Twins!

| Filed under: Baby BlabberMariah CareyNick Cannon


Drumroll please….The most divine, divalicous twinsies on the planet officially have names!

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have finally revealed the names of their newborn twins! And they are…

Moroccan Scott Cannon and Monroe Cannon!

The couple's son, Moroccan, was named after the the Moroccan-inspired room in MiMi's apartment where Nick proposed to her. His middle name, Scott, is also Nick’s middle name, as well as his grandmother’s maiden name.

As for the couple's littlest diva, Monroe, the name is obviously derived from Mariah's lifelong idol, Marilyn Monroe. The baby girl does not have a middle name because Mariah herself does not have one.

Such beautiful and personal choices! We adore them both! You did good, MiMi and Nick!

    well i knew she would come up with something outlandish and non-sensical but Morrocan takes the cake. seriously, how stupid.

  2. 2

    Yeah.. Monroe is ok, I guess. But Moroccan is awful. Morocco would have been a little bit better, but still bad. Let's hope they call him Scott.

  3. 3

    Sorry Mimi, but I don't like the names. You should have just named the girl Marilyn. Monroe sounds like a boy's name and Moroccan is just dumb.

  4. 4

    Can you really not have a middle name in these days??Everything I fill out these days requires a middle initial…. of course this kid will be rich and will never have to fill out a job application… so I guess she'll be fine without one.

  5. 5

    Monroe is a good choice but Moroccan?? really?

  6. 6

    Pimping the babies out for magazine covers in 3…2….1

  7. 7

    edgy :p how very 'roc 'n' roe' of her.

    badoom tish….

  8. 8

    get off it those names aren't outlandish at all other people in the entertainment business have partially named their daughters Monroe after Marilyn and Moroccan is named after the room his father propossed to his mother in in their NYC appartment. Monroe doesn't have a middle name because Mariah herself doesn't & her mom Patricia has said that's because she thought Mariah would look perfect on a marquee and who cares most of the time middle names aren't used anyway

    um one of them is a girl right? lmao…..yeah book the first therapy session now …wtf there are no words to describe my confusion right now ..she has no fucking class whatsoever poor whoever got stuck with Moroccan lmao I fucking cant ..that's not even a fucking name

  10. 10

    Moroccan? No offense to the Moroccans but ew .. not as a first name!

  11. 11

    mariah's children will sue their parents later in life for giving them such dreadful names! what atrocious names !!

  12. 12

    Moroccan has got to be one of the dumbest names I've ever heard.

  13. 13

    Stupid names - now everyone can call them MoMo

  14. 14

    Yuck and um…..Yuck!

  15. 15

    Mariah is so wacked out… Morrocan is the dumbest name I've ever heard. Poor kid. I guess it's better than Butterfly which I was sure would be one of her choices.

  16. 16

    I love the name Monroe and Moroccan is unique. Sounds like a King's name. Anyway, it's better than "Apple".

  17. 17

    Dumb names, but not a big surprise look at the parents

  18. 18

    Re: MLE9025 – Are you stupid? If you don't have a middle name then you don't write one down. It's not required! LMFAO!

    Anyhow, Moroccan is stupid. Really. Really. Morocco would be better.
    Monroe is pretty, though.

    Naming her son after a room she decorated just shows how self absored she is. Oh, I got proposed to in this room I decorated! I know, I'll name my son after this! WOW!!!!!!!!!

    Re: ctblackdiamondprincess – …..really? Was it necessary to repeat everything written above? Besides, explaining it again doesn't make the name Moroccan any less ridiculous. Monroe, I like.

  20. 20

    I'm glad that being so wealthy the kids will be protected from bullying 'i hope'. I can hear kids in the school yard calling the boy Moron instead. What an ugly name. Why bother? you know that kid will much prefer being called Scott. Scott Morocco would be so much better. And Cannon as last name? I so prefer Carey.

  21. 21

    Monroe would be a nice name for the boy, but Moroccan is just awful.

  22. 22

    Moroccan????? Dumbest name ever. This makes Pilot Inspector sound normal.
    MiMoo has lost her shit!

  23. 23

    Re: BeNiceYall – No I'm not stupid asshole… for online job applications… a middle initial is REQUIRED. So, go ahead and eat shit please.

  24. 24

    Well on the plus side, the names aren't as outlandish as I would have expected from her. Monroe is cute but unoriginal….but Moroccan?? What.The.Hell. She named her son an adjective. That's like naming your kid Italian or American lol. Morocco would have been better, at least he could have had the nickname Rocco.

  25. 25

    ok im going to start of and say,that i am a massive mariah carey fan (as most of you regulars know) and have always surported her in everyway. byt the names are not great.

    if she wanted to name her daughter after her idol,she should have just called her marilyn!
    and I just dont understand her sons name what so ever. after a room in your house? i acutally really thought she would name him alfred (alfie for short) after her dad. but i guess even her children have to have a theme

  26. 26

    Seriously, Moroccan is just awful. It is moronic!

  27. 27

    Re: ms…. – LOL

  28. 28

    I can't believe you love these names! Monroe I can take. Moroccan? What a dumb name!

  29. 29

    I thought her husband said they would not name their kids "weird celebrity" names that would be hard for them. Mariah Carey should not have kids - she's too stupid!

  30. 30

    Wow the only thing that's ugly here is all these hateful people posting. It's not your job to like or not to like their kids names.

  31. Twime says – reply to this


    Congratulations to the couple… but…. they named their son after a room?! Moroccan? As in Moroccan food? That's mean. But Monroe is kinda cute though.

  32. 32

    Well.. I thought Monroe was the boys name.. that would make more sense.

  33. 33

    Re: MLE9025 – Um I don't have a middle name so guess what! I just leave the middle name space BLANK! DUHHHH

  34. 34

    I was thinking she would name the girl Mimi..

  35. 35

    How Nick could allow for his black son to be named Morrocan is beyond me. Its obvious that Mimi wears the pants in that family. That's just ridiculous. Like someone said, just name him Morroco then - which is still STUPID AS FUCK. Monroe is ugly but is amazing next to her brother's name. Good God! Poor kids…Why not name her Nickole or something. Or name the boy Scott Morroco Cannon - that sounds a MILLION times better! Augh!

  36. 36


    Hideous names! That boy will be called Moron by kids/adults!. And Monroe??! For a girl sounds just as hideous. Both children will be scarred for life with those names.


  37. Heh says – reply to this


    Re: BeNiceYall – LMFAO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WTF?????????????? HAHAHA

  38. 38

    Let's see…Alicia Keys and the married man she stole, Swizz Beatz, named their child Egypt. Now there's a Moroccan.
    Waiting for little Libya to be born…

    Can't really get with this program. One child was named after a room (Moroccan? Why not Hashish?), another after a legend of the silver screen. Kinda flippant IMO.

  39. Heh says – reply to this


    Re: MLE9025 – i'M SORRY BUT how the fuck is it required to write down a middle name if you dont fucking have one …….MAYBE THIS IS WHY YOU CANT GET A JOB …JESUS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THIS IS OUR FUTURE PEOPLE

  40. 40

    baby name FAIL

  41. 41

    Cray Cray!

  42. 42

    guys..u know what?..u should go and tweet mariah and nick ..tell them that the names is extremely stupid!..what the hell !! srsly these babies r doomed with those stupid moronic names..a boy name for the girl??wtf!!..and the boy named after an object ??? mariah has lost another fan >:( ..she is getting crazy after she married nick!

  43. 43

    They are calling the boy Roc, for short.

  44. 44

    Re: gorgeous_chik7 – What the fuck does Nick being black have to do with his sons name ??????? BTW Mariah is multi racial, one of them being black. So she's black too. People will pull the race card on anything these days.

  45. 45

    I knew it would be something dumb.. i don't get celebrities.. i mean i got Moroccan in me and i wouldn't name my kid that.. not to mention it's after a fucking theme!? wtf?
    Monroe is okay though.. that's a nice name..:P

  46. 46

    Moroccan? Wow……… Some people seriously don't deserve to have children… Well it could have been worse I guess… He could have ended up with "French Provincial" as a name…

  47. mw says – reply to this


    I named my kid "Garage" because I have a…garage…

  48. 48

    "Monroe" I am 'ok' with but, "Moroccan Scott"? Just awful!

  49. 49

    Re: nermend – I totally agree at first I thought monroe was the boy and i felt bad for the girl

  50. 50

    poor boy,his name is weird….
    at least the girl's name is normal

  51. 51

    Re: MLE9025

    I don't have a middle name, and have never had any problems filling out forms, including applications. A middle name has never been required in this country! Are you kidding me? You must not get out very much.

  52. 52

    Moroccan doesn't make sense…like America vs American..it's an adjective..WTF?????

  53. 53

    wow i think they are both really stupid. If i even like Marilyn Monroe, I wouldve just chosen Marilyn

  54. 54

    Monroe is ok but still not a fave girl's name. Morrocan is awful! Morocco would have been better!

  55. 55

    Moroccan is too easy to shorten to Moron in my opinion. I wonder if he'll go by Rocky. Rocky Cannon sounds good. Monroe is nice- good name. :-)

  56. 56

    Re: ms…. – Roc 'n Roe, hee, that's a good one! Nothing offensive about that either for the kids, should they shorten to that. Just a little silly naming twins as such. Like Celine's Nelson & Eddy. Might as well call twins things like Punch & Judy, Mutt & Jeff, Don & Dawn etc. Has anyone done that yet?
    Anyway, they could have done worse- Moroccan can at least be shortened to Rocky. :-)

  57. 57

    Roc and Roe?

  58. 58

    are u serious perez? thoes names SUCK! wtf r they thinking? wow…

  59. 59

    I was sure the girl would be Mariposa, given Mariah's obsession with the soft-bodied winged worms.

    As for Moroccan, can anyone think of another name that is an adjective??? Maybe "Big." She named her son an adjective. Oh wait, she also named him after a decor. Try explaining that to the boy when he is 25 or so.

    Monroe is kind of cool but it wasn't Norma Jean's real name. "Roc and Roe" is extremely funny, even if roe are fish eggs.

    As for middle names, I don't have one either.

  60. 60

    those are some fucking stupid names.

  61. 61

    wow, once again I don't understand all of the backlash and hate towards the Cannons. I LOVE the names! Very very cute, and of symbolic meaning. Oh and the nick names "Roc & Roe" are just icing on the cake. So adorbs! Can't wait to see pix soon! You know they are going to be super Adorable. I hope little Monroe is girlie like her mom, and Moroccan is hyper & funny like his dad ;-)

  62. 62

    if they call the boy by his middle name Scott-then it won't be so bad for him at least and the name Monroe-with time people will adjust to it
    the boy is the one who will have the harder time with the neme they chose
    maybe the child is lucky that Nick didn't propose in a different room in the house -like the bathroom/kitchen whatever..
    guess it could have even been worse!

  63. 63

    Re: tiffanydaahling – Seriously? Ok what type of drugs are you on and where i can get some??

  64. 64

    What can you expect from a bimbo and a douchbag. If she really is a Marilyn fan she should have named her daughter Norma, still more feminine than Monroe… and Moroccan…. out of words there. And poor kids, carrying the surname of that tard, more than sure the kids would have loved to carry Carey in their names!.

  65. 65

  66. 66

    Just imagine some future highschool girl telling her mother 'There's this boy in my class who's really cute… yeah, I really like Moroccan' and the mum goes 'Moroccan… what? You like Moroccan what?' and the girl goes 'No, just Moroccan, I like Moroccan' and mum goes 'What?! You like Moroccan what?! Food, culture, clothes, climate, what?? Moroccan boys? What Moroccan thing do you like?! and girl goes 'No mum, that's his NAME!' I think mum will laugh her ass off at this point.

  67. 67

    how stupid!!!
    moroccan room as in moroccan style, so its absolutely not after a retarded room… whats next? rihanna gonna name her future kids to german and armani?

    Re: bleahf – How did I know that the Euro tra$h would have a negative comment on a Mariah post. Must be OBSESSED !

  70. 70

    I am a Moroccan and let me just say that Moroccan Scott is the dumbest name ever!!!

  71. 71

    Re: MLE9025 – ummm I dont have a middle name. It's not like a surname where its required…..

  72. Jai says – reply to this


    Didn't he pledge a few months ago that the kids would have sensible normal names….. those are both and pretty ridiculous.

  73. 73

    Some of you people are idiots. You really think these kids are going to have it rough because of their names? First of all, they're children of celebrities. That's going to make them the top of the social ladder growing up. No kid is going to give a shit what their names are; they're going to be practically begging to hang around them. That's just kind of how the it goes in this shallow, materialistic world. Besides, Frank Zappa named his kids far worse names (Moon Unit, Dweezil, and Diva), and they turned out fine.

  74. 74

    These beautiful Twins do NOT belong to any one of you hating judgmental people. Have your own kids and name yours what you want. Morrocan is unique and has room to play with the name as far as nick names. I really regret ever reading these posts, cause all the negative comments are terribly stupid.

  75. 75

    moroccan? imagine your child growing up knowing he was named after the style of a room in his mother's house….talk about materialistic…

  76. 76

    Maybe that person who said something about jobs and a middle name meant that nobody would take this person for real with such a stupid name. If you apply for a job and tell them that your name is Moroccan no way they would take you.

    Re: biana v – biana, i've never thought of registering on this website but when i read your comment about comparing it to naming your kid italian or american i couldnt stop laughing. I knew i had to reply to this. hahahahha

  79. 79

    This obsession with Marilyn Monroe (Mimi, Megan Fox, LiLo) is so fucking annoying. You didn't know her. She had a tough upbringing and she had her demons, but she was a piece of work herself. But everyone romanticizes her like she was the ultimate victim and anytime something bad happens, people compare themselves to her. Fucking stop it.

  80. 80

    Monroe?? Why not Marilyn? And as for Morrocan…another pair of celebs with crazy ideas of what would be great names for their children…

  81. 81

    perez really?????? Beautiful????? what are you thinking????? these are by far the strangest names that the celebs have come up with. Ok Monroe doesn't sound so bad but if I had notheard the Moroccan's middle was scott i would not have know which was the boys name. Why not just call her Marilyn?? i'm just sayin. I can't even really say anything about Moroccan, it is just really silly

  82. 82

    omg, poor babies!

  83. 83

    I can just imagine what that kid will have to put up with "Hi, I'm Moroccan", "Really? You sound American"…

  84. 84

    I'm a huge Mariah fan and I find the names very stupid! I was upset when I heard them! Morocco would've been better than Moroccan and Monroe could grow on a person, I guess. Very surprised at her name choices. I was so sure she would name them Melody and Micah! That would've been super cute!!

  85. 85

    Re: MLE9025 – no, idiot, no

  86. 86

    Why Moroccan? Morocco makes more sense if your going to use it as as a first name. Monroe for a girl-it goes along fine with the Ryan, Raegan, Kennedy etc.. trend.

  87. 87

    Seriously people give it up, their are so many worse names out there. Egypt… Blanket….

    Yeh Blanket.

    I like these.

  88. 88

    Re: ms…. – that's some funny sh*t!! Good one!

  89. 89

    I like there names we already knew she would name the girl after Marilyn but Morrocan if anybody remembers her cribs episode Morrocan is the top room of her pent house and I don't know why we are surprised by the names celebs give there kids weird names all the time.

  90. 90

    Moroccan isn't so good… but i kinda like Monroe

  91. 91

    I don't see why everyone is saying that Monroe should be a boys name. who names a boy after Marilyn Monroe?

  92. 92

    repulsive flopped black whore

  93. 93

    Ok, Let me start off by saying congrats to Mariah And Nick! thay deserve all the happiness in the world and blessed twice!!.

So to all you ENVIOUS! HATERS! remember this… It's their Life, their children, their future and their adults financially stable,so SHUT THA FUCK UP!!!!!!!
