What horrible names what a shame for them babies.

Excellent news! Congratulations! Let this be a lesson to my fellow women: don’t procrastinate having children because you don’t want your figure to change or to put your career on hold. Having children is not a disease or a curse. It’s a privilege.

# 5

Ugh- what horrible names

I am sure they will be great parents. Congrats! Giving birth to a child is such an emotional and indescribable experience. I only wish that this had happened earlier to them.

@wth: Yes, really horrible names… When the boy grows up he can always choose to be called Scott instead of Moroccan but what will that poor girl do? Monroe…no.

Aww. Totally disappointed. I was hoping for Melody Songstress and Moe Townsend. Oh well.

Woooo! I’m so excited for them! I’m a new mother and I highly recommend having children. My hips are bigger…my breasts are bigger. I’m loving it! I feel like more of a woman now. It definitely makes me feel so much sexier than ever before.

Congratulations! I think it’s the best thing in life. It really changed my life when I had my first kid. Now that I have three, I’m really, really happy and I would love to have more. It’s a really amazing experience.

monroe? she should have named her marilyn instead… and moroccan , no comments. ugh

I’m sure Mariah chose the names as she’s the one who has always been in control of the relationship and had the power.

I like Monroe. that is fine but Moroccan? just no! Monroe and Morocco would have been better.

WTF! Those are terrible! Poor dem babies…. why doesn’t Monroe get a middle name?

Horrible names…poor children will be teased relentlessly by school mates and others. Moroccan usually reserved for citizens of the Muslim country of Morocco. Monroe not a very feminine name and harsh sounding. Considering they wanted M names (obviously to satisfy Mariah’s ego) they had a huge choice of beautiful names. They had nine months to think up names and that was the best they could come up with?


Yes, then they could call him Rocco. Roe and Rocco. That’s probably what they will be called anyway. Mariah has always been a cheap looking woman with cheap taste.

Um litttle Moroccan is named after the top tier of his parents triplex appartment in NYC. Monroe didn’t get a middle name because Mariah herself doesn’t have one which her mother Patricia has said is because she knew that Mariah would look nice on a marquee and she’s also named after the learner and lowe song They Called The Wind Mariah. all that matters is everyone is healthy and that’s the case

What is it with celebs picking the most godawful TRASHY ‘names’ for their innocent children? Was the childbirth THAT bad, that the mothers need to get revenge? Seriously, these names are absolutely DISGUSTING and an insult to these children! Was a fan, but sick of celebs trying to outdo each other in the TRASHIEST of TRASHY NAME COMPETITION.

Ohhhhh… dear… Well, Monroe isn’t SO bad. Maybe that’s the new “Madison.” Moroccan?

Well, Zowie Bowie grew up to be Duncan Jones and a brilliant filmmaker, so here’s hoping!

I think Mariah & Nick are so cute together. I wish them years of genuine happiness with dem babies.

“litttle Moroccan is named after the top tier of his parents triplex appartment in NYC. ”
CHARMING! Maybe her next IVF child will be named Dishlex, after the third floor’s dishwasher! How TRASHY!
