Did you hear that Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have finally revealed the names of their twins? Fans everywhere have been asking, “What are Mariah Carey’s twins’ names?”, after she teased followers on Twitter that both names started with the letter “M.”
Drum Roll please…the names of Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon’s twins are…
Moroccan Scott Cannon for the boy, and Monroe Cannon for the girl. Yes, I’m being totally serious.
Why did Mariah and Nick choose these names for their babies, and will they get made fun of as older children?
Let’s look at Moroccan Cannon first. Moroccan Cannon? Really? His name may have special meaning, but it would’ve sounded much better if they’d given him Carey as a last name instead of Cannon. Moroccan Cannon sounds like some sort of high-end vacuum cleaner or something.
The significance in the name “Moroccan” is that that Nick proposed to Mariah in the “Moroccan Room”, which is at the top of Mariah’s NYC apartment.
Monroe isn’t such a bad name for the little girl, but again, it may have sounded cuter with “Carey” at the end, or even “Carey-Cannon.”
Little Monroe is supposedly named after Mariah’s inspiration, Marilyn Monroe.
These names have just been announced, but I’m guessing that we’ll be hearing about them for quite some time.
