Moroccan Scott & Monroe Cannon

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have finally revealed the names of their twins. Are the twins' names as weird as we envisioned?

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have finally revealed the names of their newborn twins: Their son's name is Moroccan Scott Cannon and daughter is Monroe Cannon!

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon reveal twins' names

We love the names -- not at all what we envisioned after Carey and Cannon gave hints on Twitter.

So, where did the names come from? Moroccan Scott is named after the top tier on Carey's NYC apartment: The Moroccan Room. Scott is Cannon's middle name and his grandmother's maiden name, according to CNN. The Moroccan Room also has special significance for the couple: It's where Cannon proposed to Carey!

And as for Monroe? She's named after Marilyn Monroe and doesn't have a middle name because Carey doesn't have one either. Like mother, like daughter!

"It has been a long, emotional journey for this family, and I couldn't be happier for all of them," Carey's rep, Cindi Berger, told CNN.

We can't help but be super excited for Carey and Cannon: They've obviously looked forward to Moroccan Scott and Monroe for a while and it appears they'll be doting parents. Plus, the twins' names are unusual, but not as "out there" as we thought.

Nick Cannon recently summed up his feelings well.

"I'm in the happiest place I've ever been in my life. I never had more amazing things happening. I am humbled by God's Favor!!" Cannon tweeted on May 1.

What do you think of the names of Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon's twins?

Sigh...Their babies, name them what they want, but....not cute at all. Very disappointing. Maybe they will call them by a Roe and Rocan or something cute like that.

Totally agree, Brenda. COME ON! What's wrong with John and Sarah?

Ugh. Moroccan and Monroe? Why do celebs have to do this to their children? Monroe is OK. But Moroccan? I understand the significance to them, but do they really have to burden their kid with a word that's usually followed by the word "spice"? Bad choice, Mariah and Nick.
