It took them a few days, but Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have finally settled on some unique names for their twins.
MiMi hinted earlier today that both names would begin with "M," and asked her followers on Twitter to put in their best educated guesses. However, not even the most devout Mariah fan could possibly have guessed that the couple would name the new baby boy and girl Moroccan Scott Cannon and Monroe Cannon, respectively.
A rep for the couple confirmed to CNN that their daughter, Monroe, "was named after Marilyn Monroe, who has been an inspiration to Mariah her whole life." The baby girl doesn’t have a middle name since "Mariah herself does not have one."
The couple announced that they decided to call their son Moroccan after the top floor of Mariah’s New York City apartment where Nick and Mariah got engaged. The baby boy carries a bit of family history in his middle name, Scott, which also happens to be Nick’s middle name. Scott is also Nick’s grandmother’s maiden name.
