    Those names are terrible..What in the world were they thinking?
    Moroccan ???? Monroe is not that bad.
    9 months and they called them dembabies, maybe they should of stuck with that.
    I am happy the child are healthy.

    F**k you, Fernanda! Every woman who has a child at 40 isn’t “procrastinating”. In know this may sound unbelievable but some women actually wait until they find Mr. Right before having children. God Bless Mariah for waiting on true love to arrive.

    Now as far as the names go…..I think Monroe Cannon is cute and has a nice ring to it. Now Moroccan Cannon is another story. WTF?!?!?

    How cruel, ‘What?’. Not everyone is blessed to be able to conceive naturally. That’s just not even funny. And I think Mariah made it clear that she used fertility drugs, not IVF. And even if she did, so what? You’re just a b**ch.

    No offence, but I don’t like the names. They should’ve named the boy Scott, and the girl marilyn instead…

    Monroe is okay and different, but Moroccan is just SO stupid. But that’s to be expected with headcase Mariah.

    DeeDee Says:

    Honestly, don’t like either one of those names. Monroe sounds like an old man’s name and not very ladylike. But, hey they aren’t my children and they can name them Booboo and Foofoo if they so choose. I came up with Nariah and Mick, which sounds better than theirs.

    Monroe I like. Moroccan? No and no and no. Morocco would be better. Another bad celeb name choice. Up there with Apple, imo.

    Monroe is ok, its growing on me but Moroccan?? Surely Morocco would make slightly more sense and sound more like a name than a description. Moroccan sounds like your waiting for another word, moroccan waht? coffee, liquer?no moroccan canon…that a type of gun/?/ jesus thats just an awful name to give a child. I mean Morocco would still be a bad name, but at least it might sound a little italian/spanish type thing, go by Mario or something but moroccan??? somone should have slapped them both for that ****

    For M names…some beautiful choices:

    Girl: Maya, Melina, Marla, Maddie, Michelle

    Boy: Mason, Mark, Michael, Matthew, Max

    Monroe and Moroccan–and naming a baby after a ceiling lol…they have no class at all!

    So for many people, the name Morrocon is a big problem.

    There is no signs of racism of course….

    I think it’s very beautiful, I didn’t heard such beautiful names since a long time.

    Keilee Says:

    Thinking about it, Madonna’s son is Rocco isnt he, and noone thought that was stupid (though i dont like it) so i guess the boy could go by Rocco or something but to label poor little thing with Moroccan and then tell the world your named after a room in your mothers appt?? well, his parents need nver whip out the embarrassing baby pictures when he grows up, everyone he ever dates will know he’s named after a triplex floor. Classy. couldnt they have just gone with Rocco and left it at that? or had that as his middle name? jeez

    Kate Says:

    Maybe she likes… Morocco and Marilyn Monroe? Ahaha, what are these names. Like srsly?
    Is it case to say that she didn’t go to Morocco on her honey moon and got pissed?!

    There’s always Bluebell Madonna (Gerry Halliwell’s daughter).
    Don’t know which one is worst.

    Some of you say that mariah & nick should have been less selfish when they named their named kids. First of all it’s THEIR kids so how is it any your business if they named them moroccan and monroe.

    Annie Says:

    Wow, so they gave the son a normal middle name but not the daughter? No fair. If this was a homage to Marilyn Monroe they should have called her Marilyn which is a beautiful name – but Monroe, not so much. And Moroccan? Ugh, why do pretentious people always have to name their kid after a country/city?

    I Mean Everyone Haves Their Own Opinion But It Was Their Chose, Those Might Not Be The Ideal Names For Everyone But Dembabies Are Here And Happy And Thats All That Matters.

    maria,i think naming the boy manuel and the girl monique will be a perfect march though,or you can as well name the boy mendy and the girl wendy.
