Everyone was a little bit confused and intrigued when Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey revealed the names of their twins, Moroccan and Monroe. Moroccan Scott Cannon was named after the Moroccan room in Mariah's New York apartment, where Nick proposed. Scott was picked because it's Nick's middle name and his grandma's maiden name.
Monroe Cannon was named after Marilyn Monroe, who Mariah says is her show business inspiration. Monroe doesn't have a middle name, because Mariah doesn't either.
