Mariah Carey Announces The Names Of Her Twins

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon finally reveal the names of their newborn twins.


Mariah was dropping hints on Twitter yesterday about the possible names of her son and daughter, born on Saturday, only sharing that they both started with the letter “M”.  Today she revealed their full names and the reasons behind them. 

Their baby boy: Moraccan Scott Cannon

“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 baby girl: Monroe Cannon.

“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.”

Thoughts? Do you like the names? Nick had previously said they were choosing unique names, but nothing too outlandish.  Do you think they accomplished that?
