She is hotttttt

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

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

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.

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!!!

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..

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.:)

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

The babies should sue the parents for such bad taste .

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

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

Roc and Roe….lol

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

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

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

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


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!!! :)

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.

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

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

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.

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!!

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