Mariah Carey’s Baby Names Revealed

Published: Wednesday 4th May 2011 by Sam

Diva Mariah Carey made headlines last week, following the fairytale birth of her and husband Nick Cannon’s twins (a boy and girl) – on their 3rd wedding anniversary.

Given the ‘out there’ nature of mother dearest, focus immediately shifted to what names the pair had concocted for their offspring.

Now, speculation can be laid to rest, after Carey’s rep lifted the lid on the youngster’s names.

Find out what Mariah and Nick chose after the jump. And yes, they’re “Hollywood”.

Speaking exclusively to CNN, Carey’s longtime manager Cindi Berger revealed that the couple’s daughter is named Monroe Cannon – in tribute to movie star Marilyn Monroe, who has been a lifelong inspiration to the singer. No middle-names for the little diva, as quote-unquote ‘mother doesn’t have one’.

The couple’s son, according to the report, has been christened Moroccan Scott Cannon. With Scott serving as Nick’s middle name, as well as his grandmother’s maiden name. And Moroccan being drawn from the top-tier room in their home called the Moroccan Room. Beyond its Moroccan-inspired decor, it’s also the place where Nick proposed to his wife, overlooking Manhattan. {Source}

We, here at That Grape Juice are elated for Mariah and co. As anticipated, the names are…very Mimi!

From a musical standpoint, though, it’d be great to see the youngsters provide fresh inspiration for mother. No more cookie-cutter playground songs, or ill-fitting dresses. Here’s to a new chapter.

  2. Corey May 4, 2011

    Monroe is cute, but the boy’s name would’ve been better as Morocco.

  3. SAY WHAT? May 4, 2011


    No….none at all.


  4. JJFAN1814 May 4, 2011

    Nice names.

  5. Music Lover May 4, 2011

    More appropriate names would be “Holstein” for the boy and “Heifer” (aka Heffa – for the hood rats here) for the little chica. Considering they were gestating for 14 mos in the fat cow they seem quite appropo. The name of the farm, however, is kept private by the happy couple. Just sayin.

    Monroe is a cute name

    but I’m also not feeling Moroccan Scott

    ….If I was her I would have named the Girl Hollywood and the Boy Sir Scott!

    Are you a teenager? Because you are such a hateful little spirit. Let me guess, you’re a follower of Gaga? Well doesn’t that explain everything!

  10. Leona Stan! May 4, 2011

    Moroccan?! ;erwl5fgu3yi4ufoio2

    They are FOOLS.

  11. Ariana May 4, 2011

    Monroe’s cute, I don’t love it but it doesn’t sound bad at all. I’m not feeling Moroccan at all, but hey, it’s Mariah — you would expect something like this, right? At least she didn’t name him Rainbow Butterfly 😀

    I couldn’t agree more with you Sam, I’m waiting to see if she’s taking on a new direction with her music. Her Xmas album was beautiful but she needs to create something new & vibrant.

    Meanwhile she better takes her time & enjoy it with dembabies.

    When I heard they both had M names I bet money they would be named Maggot and MudButt!

  14. kevin May 4, 2011

    Y’all need to step off. You have no right to judge what a woman names her damn children.

  15. THE NAKED TRUTH May 4, 2011

    Love the names!


    Why are people saying hateful things about what they name their children ? Lets see some of your names…Ohhhhh I thought so!

  16. YOUR Queen! May 4, 2011

    Those names are foolish, those poor babies! They better just call the boy Rocco instead of Moroccan! Ugh I cant with these tacky Hollywood names.

  17. KEVIN May 4, 2011

    @MUSIC LOVER – And your name should have been Lucifer Satan, appropriate for the evil and wicked mind that could so easily conjure up nothing but hate for two innocent, harmless children of God.
    Anyway, personally don’t like them but they’re their children, as long as they’re happy with them that’s fine by me.

  18. royalkev May 4, 2011

    Great names! That Mariah always finds a really cool concept with a lot of meaning behind it when it comes down to this stuff.

    @Stevone – I remember a book I read that lines up your names with numbers and the one thing that stuck with me was the mention of how most “M” names are great for show business and have a lot of power in them(it makes me think of MJ, Mariah and Madonna).


  19. JohnVidal May 4, 2011

    I love the names. I expected something more strange…
    I see the shade has begun again for Mariah here on TGJ now that Trent´s gone. I don´t understand what is it with Sam: it´s clear he loves Mariah cos just this Xmas his top 5 songs of 2010 included the Mariah duet with her mom. Yes a f****** Xmas song one of the best of the year b******. So I know he can´t help but love her music. So why all the shade he has always thrown into Mariah??? Is he jelous???

  20. Hassan May 4, 2011

    The names are amazing! Now Mariah just needs to make a good comeback and show these singers what MUSIC actually is! O and beat The Beatles 😉 x

  21. aisha May 4, 2011

  23. Melina May 4, 2011

    Morrocan? Naming a baby after inhabitants of a country. Hmm, interesting.

  24. Mely B May 4, 2011

    Luv Mariah & Nick and I’m sure the babies are as cute as they are. Yea for Monroe, boo for Moroccan.

  25. MISHKA May 4, 2011

  26. NikkiIsChillin May 4, 2011

    Congrats to the new parents. Love Monroe but not feeling the Moroccan thing. But love that he shares Nicks middle name. Cool.

  27. mobwife May 4, 2011

    What?? Ummmm……

    These seem like media buzz names…like Pathrow’s “Apple” or Cruse’s “Suri” (sp)! Whatever, I just hope they are healthy!

  35. bey’knight May 4, 2011


    gaga has destroyed your soul


    i think both names are beautiful simply cause they are both inspired, they aren’t random names. maybe this site should be reformed, the amount of bitterness spewed here is beginning to concern me. how can people be so blackhearted???

  36. RosaRubbel May 4, 2011

    Don’t ask me why, but I think Moroccan sounds very cute.

  37. RosaRubbel May 4, 2011

    These are little babies, gosh people have some respect!

  38. True Blue May 4, 2011

    I don’t mind Monroe, but Morrocan??? O_o

    Oh well, as long as the children are healthy.

  39. bey’knight May 4, 2011

  40. BENJAMIN May 4, 2011


  41. Are You Serious May 4, 2011

    Fact: Mariah’s love black Morrocan d***!

  43. Silver Monroe May 4, 2011

    First Of All’ Marilyn Monroe was not even Marilyn Monroe’s real name. It is still a nice name though. She should have named her daughter Marilyn. Her son, I guess they will be calling him Rocco for short; and unless he grows into some “afro-centric” type guy, he will be using the name Scott more. It sound more “White-American”.

  44. Peanut Brittle May 4, 2011

    no more about these babies..dang..let them live..Uggs Giving Away Stuff After PETA called them out.. to Get Consumers to Support them….haha got 2 pair!

  45. daznielle bahamas May 4, 2011

    wow thast diffrent but its her kids!

  46. Chile Please!! May 4, 2011

    I’m Shocked she didn’t name her kids Dolce & Gabanna! LOL! You know how over this top Ms. Moo Moo is….looking like a pregnant Kangaroo with a long Beyance weave in that pic. I can’t with her………..NEXT!

  47. Nichole May 4, 2011

    I don’t think naming their son after the people of Morroco was the best idea.

    I remember many years ago when Mariah stated that she would like to name her daughter Ginger. Perhaps after Ginger on Gilligan’s Island? I hope the kids are well, and healthy.

  48. sugarwall May 5, 2011

    nice names! so original

  49. Bobby from Bulgaria May 5, 2011

    At first the names do sound a little strange…

    But then…

    Monroe Cannon
    Moroccan Scott Cannon

    You quickly get used to it and they just sound right the way they should be…
    Nice original names… 🙂

    (The disrespectful satanic haters go to hell – you belong together…)

  50. lucia May 5, 2011


    out of all the names in the world they choose the term for psychotic hoodlum

    i guess.

    child is lucky that he can change his name later on in life.

    he is lucky to be a US native and not Dutch. Moroccan in Holland=fcked up

  51. Tru Voice May 5, 2011

    I’ll take Monroe, it’s unique. But Moroccan Scott? no. These celebs go too far with these names, Naming kids Apple, n Planes and after their fathers (see Bobbi Kristina) smh. But whatever.

  52. whitneydiva78 aka QueenWhitney May 5, 2011

    Names are cute. I love the fact that they use Moroccan to remind them of were they meet.

    And as long as they don’t grow up to be like that crack head Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston’s equally crack head daughter Bobby Kristania then all we be well. But we know that Mariah and Nick have class while those 2 washed up crackheads don’t know what it means.

    f*** you.

    Hi! I understand this is kind of off-topic but I needed to ask. Does managing a well-established website such as yours require a massive amount work? I’m brand new to operating a blog but I do write in my diary everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Thankyou!
