Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have finally found a way to distract us all from those really embarrassing nude pregnancy photos that are circulating by choosing some really strange names for dembaby twins.
The boy: Moroccan Scott
The girl: Monroe Cannon
All I can say is ... thank you. Thank you, Mariah and Nick, from the bottom of my heart. Because with all this dire and heavy Osama stuff going around, we all really need a good laugh. (And no fair getting all sanctimonious mommy on me either. I'm under baby name attack, too, since finding out my kid's name is on the Most Hated Baby Name List. And you know they picked these whackadoodle names knowing we'd talk about them endlessly, that was the whole purpose!)
The first chuckle comes from the Official Mariah Carey News page, where the big name announcement was made. Honestly the girl name isn't horrible as far as manly, violent names of unstable starlets who meet tragic ends go. But to name a kid after a room in your house? (And to actually name a room in your house?) I'm sorry I don't care how special that room is ...
Their son is named Moroccan Scott Cannon. Scott is Nick’s middle name, as well as his grandmother’s maiden name.
The top tier of Mariah’s New York City apartment is called the Moroccan Room, because of the Moroccan-inspired decor. It’s also the place where Nick proposed to his wife, overlooking Manhattan!
Their daughter’s name is Monroe Cannon. Mariah's rep says she does not have a middle name because Mariah herself does not have one. Monroe was named after Marilyn Monroe, who has been an inspiration to Mariah her whole life.
The second outright LOL comes courtesy of some of my favorite Twitter reactions to the names. Check it:
"Fitting that the word 'moron' is already hidden in each name."
"Well that's another ridiculous baby name to add to the list of names I wouldn't even name my dog, Moroccan, really?"
"Mariah Carey's twins named 'Monroe Cannon & Moroccan Scott Cannon'. It means 'Our parents suck monkey balls' in OLD ENGLISH."
"Ok Mariah Carey, these are some weird kids names:Monroe (girl) Moroccan (boy) Come on now."
Do you like the names that Mariah and Nick picked for dembabies?
