Mariah Carey Names Dem Babies Monroe & Morrocan

“Dem Babies” officially have names!  Monroe for Mariah’s baby girl and Moroccan for her son.  I knew that she and hubby, Nick Cannon, wanted baby names that started with the letter ‘M’, but I would have never guessed those two names!

How’d she come up with the monikers?  According to, Monroe was named after Marilyn Monroe, who has always been an inspiration to Carey, while Moroccan was inspired by the place where Cannon proposed.

Pregnant and still deciding on your baby’s name?  If Monroe and Morrocan aren’t helping your decision, get inspiration from these top 3 baby naming books on
