Mariah Carey, Nick Cannon Reveal Babies' Names

GABRIEL BOUYS/AFP/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have revealed the names of their newly-born twins.

The boy's name is Moroccan Scott -- Scott is Nick's middle name, as well as his grandmother's maiden name. As for "Moroccan," Nick proposed to Mariah in the top tier of her New York City apartment, which is called "The Moroccan Room" because of its Moroccan-style decor. 

The girl's name is Monroe Cannon -- there's no middle name, Mariah's rep says, because Mariah doesn't have one.  The "Monroe" is after Marilyn Monroe, one of Mariah's heroes.  She famously purchased Marilyn Monroe's white piano a few years back.
