Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon Announce Twins’ Names

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon

The latest additions to the Carey-Cannon household now have names. Mariah and Nick have revealed what they’ll be calling their newborn twins.

The couple’s son is named Moroccan Scott Cannon, reports CNN. The top floor of Mariah’s New York City penthouse is called the Moroccan Room because of its Moroccan-inspired decor, and is where Nick proposed to his wife. Scott is Nick’s middle name, as well as his grandmother’s maiden name.

Their daughter will go by the name of Monroe Cannon in honor of Marilyn Monroe, who has been a lifelong inspiration to the pop songbird. She even purchased the late actress’ white piano at an auction. Mariah’s publicist says the girl does not have a middle name because Mariah herself does not have one.

The twins were born on Saturday in Los Angeles. “They are the most incredible gifts we could ever have imagined!” tweeted the new mom.

    I think the names are very Mariah Carey-esque, I mean what would you expect from her? The names are wonderful and keep the tradition of MC and besides both names have a certain element to the them that are special to the two.
