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

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


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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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…

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


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!

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.

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.

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!
