Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon share their baby twins' names


We don't yet have photos of Mariah Carey's twin children, who were born Saturday, but we do have names. This sentence is your last chance to place bets with your friends ...

CNN says the boy is named Moroccan Scott Cannon, and is named after the top tier of Mimi's Manhattan apartment, which is called the Moroccan Room after the decor. It's also where daddy Nick Cannon proposed to mommy, and is Nick's grandmother's maiden name, so that's nice. He's nicknamed Roc, and has the same middle name as pops.

The girl is Monroe Cannon, named after Marilyn Monroe and sans middle name, since Mariah doesn't have one. She is a wackadoo Marilyn fan, though, having bought the late actress' grand piano and stipulating in their will that it go to the Smithsonian when Mimi dies. Sorry, Monroe, you don't get that one. All the M.C. monograms in that house could get confusing, though.
