    Celebs have always picked somewhat odd names for their kids but Monroe isn’t nor is it uncommon to name a child after someone you admire or a place that has special meaning to you like Pamela Anderson & Tommy Lee named their older son after Bob Dylan or Stella McCartney’s older daughter is partially named after her late mother Linda or if Melissa Newman had named one of her sons London because that was where her parents spent their honeymoon

  • MaroccanishLady

    Maroccan – what a beautiiifuuuuuuuuuuul name <3<3 I looooooove it ;D

  • RiRi

    Yet another baby naming tragedy in hollywood. SAD.. And here comes the name calling when they hit KG, Preschool, junior high, high school and so on and so forth……………..

    Moroccan? Ugh, that’s just terrible. I thought Nick said they wouldn’t give them any weird names. Monroe wouldn’t be so bad if the other child’s name was something normal like James…I can see James & Monroe, but Moroccan? That poor kids nickname will be moron in school.

  • see

    I was hoping the girls name would be Mimi Glitter Cannon or something like that

    I’m sorry but these are the worst names for celebs or twins, I have ever heard. People are startng to say Monroe is not that bad WRONG. Monroe is not cute at all for a girl. It sounds retarded and she has no choice because she doesn’t have a middle name to fall back on. What an awful thing to do to that little girl. Moroccan is an ego trip gone horribly wrong, Yuck!!!

  • mejustsayin

    Cute names wouldn’t be my choice but they are not my babies.
    Is anybody ever happy except for the odd few with anything and i mean anything celebs do when it’s their or i mean the (celebs) biz and they so readily share it with pride.
    Monro will probably get Rowe and Morroccan as they said will be Rocco so Rowe and Rocco is sweet, awwwe or even Monro and Rocco is cute..for them
    Congrats to the lovely parents. Mama has one ell of a great voice to
    rock those babies to sleep with some beautiful soft lullabyes.
    lucky little twins..

  • Kiki

    Strangely enough, I actually like the names they choose; a bit different without being crazy. I’m aware that Mariah loves Marilyn Monroe…so I see the significance there; I like Monroe, sounds a bit more edgy in comparison to Marilyn.:)

  • gary

    it’s a great tribute to Morrocco , i wonder if the moroccan are happy .

  • Claire

    The babies should sue the parents for such bad taste .

  • geez

    Moroccan Cannon? More-oh Can-can non? With parents like these, who needs enemies?

  • Roberta

    Nowadays I wonder whatever happened to “normal” names such as Jennifer or John.

  • Coco

    Roc and Roe….lol

  • P

    Oh good lord! As if growing up to be Mariah & Nick’s kids r not hard enough.

  • Chelsea

    I thought they said they didnt like crazy out there names….poor children at least moroccan can go by Scott in later life

  • Smilee101

    I think they are a cute couple (google me karonv) for another take on cute natural beauty safe even when your pregnant

  • lilia mazunina

    LOL!…MANY TIMES LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Cassandra

    I’m upset because I named my baby girl Monroe a year ago because I thought the name was so beautiful and unique, and now it’s going to get all this publicity and possibly catch on… Oh well. But I’m very happy for them!!! :)

  • Toni

    Y’all know good and well Mariah named these children and Nick had little to no say in this in regarding his children names. He probably put in Scott, but besides that he had no say at all. Mariah wears the pants in that family.
    Besides that the names are not the best, but they chose them and if they’re happy then whatever. At least dem babies are healthy and are gonna live a good and loving life with two loving parents. I hope the best for Mariah Nick Monroe and Moroccan, but I was surprised she didn’t have butterfly, glitter or whatever she likes as their names.

  • Casper

    just plain silly names….like the parents…idiots of course.

    I believe these poor babies will turn into brats,,,,,thanks to Mariah

  • Andrea

    I like Monroe,but not Moroccan.They should just stick with Scott and scrap the first name.So I take it Mariah decided their names should both start with an ‘M’ and have Nick decide the actual name.

  • Sheri

    Monroe is at least tolerable … but Moroccan?? I can see mean kids teasing him and calling him Moron. Lord help these poor babies when they start school!!

  • CranAppleSnapple

    Moroccan Scott Cannon sounds like a cage fighter. Monroe Cannon will be a decent porn name.

  • An

    Their last names should be Carey. She’s way more famous!

  • http://seriousbodoh seriousbodoh

    seriously, they’re babies! stop the hate. hope all are healthy

  • http://deleted lilia mazunina


  • http://N/A Marcus

    People stop with the hate!! They are not your babies. Yet you all are so wrapped up in what they name them

    Cute names but not my taste but they are not mine

  • not me

    I wonder why they did not go with just ‘Morocco,’ like for the country…it’s like naming someone ‘India’ or ‘Asia.’ But Moroccon??? Anyway, its their babies and they can name them whatever they want to, especially since they will inherit the millions…not like they will attend public school to be ridiculed.

  • Alma

    I think its hilarious how Nick came the day after announcing the names and said on twitter Roc and Roe. How ridiculous that sounds. Also I still dont get what he mentioned 2 days ago, before announcing the names, that the names are not going to be unusual names. really?????? I guess Mimi had a change of heart, because you know, she was bored.

  • LOL!!

    Moomoo Scary needs to be on the Biggest Loser. She’s too fat to function. Oh, she cant even sing now. She’s just wasting space in the industry and being completely irrelevant.

  • Debbie

    Mariah is in the “pink cloud” phase. She is acting like she is the only woman to ever get pregnant, birth children and name them something personal and unusual. She’ll get over it — we all do. Add Moroccan and Monroe to the calculated 106 BILLION humans born on Earth so far. Good luck to the family and to the precious little ones.

  • Pips

    They are both equally responsible for the names… stop attributing them to Mariah alone. Besides, all of Mariah’s pets have awesome names. The babies will come to appreciate these names as they clearly hold significance to their parents.

  • Dhara

    is it just me, or this two are unbelieveably most obnixious and annoying artists on the face of earth

  • me

    jlo had ugly babies, mariah has ugly baby names, neither woman wants anyone to take their spotlight away from jlo and mariah, have you ever observed more egostistical and also narcissistic ladies! good god, poor babies, but hey at least mom will forever be the cutest and have all the spotlight, no competiton from their children…

  • Roa

    i am moroccan & proud, that baby should be honored & stop saying that it’s UGLY

  • Jessica


    Oh i like that. Rocco is a normal and great name if Moroccan gets ricknamed Rocco I’ll think its a great idea. I happen to like Monroe. So Monroe and Rocco isn’t too bad. Moroccan by itself however sounds horrible. Too harsh!

  • Lilly

    WOW =O could have chsen betta names :/ Monroe is fine but Monroccan really?!? I an’t got nutin aganist Mariah ndd Nick buut um… they could have done betta on da names.

  • LexisTexas

    Still trying to figure out how they ended up together, but you guys are cute! && as far as the baby names go. I approve of Monroe, i get it…& for the longest time i thought the babys name was Monroc just to go along with monroe. But Moroccan? Why not, Moriah? <<thats a boys name. Go take that off the birth ceritifcate!
    Still a huge fan!

    But celebs are wild with baby names. (Still not over that ‘Apple’) && Suri is pronounced Sir I..It means princess in some language. but they messed it up. smh.

  • Debbie Dooley

    They both have beautiful names.
    I adore Monroe it is super cute.
    Moroccan is so exotic, he hs a great name.
    All of y’all are haters, because you think since their famous they have to have special name, what about blue ivy carter,eyince and Jay Z, that is just as exotic as moriccan. Maybe even more!
