So here you go, how Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon twins name were chosen? Per CNN via Mariahcarey.com
[Mariah and Nick's] son is named Moroccan 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 daughter’s name is Monroe Cannon. Mariah’s rep says 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.
It’s amused to know the interesting stories behind the #dembabies’ name choice.
Apparently, some of Mariah’s fans did not think Monroe and Moroccan Scott are cool names.
“Horrendous names,” commented a reader on Dailymail.Co.Uk.
“Good Lord that poor Child, Moroccan Scot is possibly the worst name I’ve ever heard, much much worse than Apple….Mariah you sing like an angel, there isn’t an album of yours I don’t own, but that’s just wrong,” another said on the same website.
