Mariah Carey and hubby Nick Cannon might have just been blessed with every parent's dream — boy and girl newborn twins — but they haven't exactly taken a traditional route in giving their twins names. Their couple's infant daughter is Monroe Cannon, after actress Marilyn Monroe, who has "been an inspiration to Mariah her whole life," reports CNN. Their son's name is Moroccan Scott Cannon. His middle name reflects both Carey's grandmother's maiden name and Cannon's own middle name. The child's first name comes from a room in the couple's New York apartment, dubbed "The Moroccan Room" for the decor, where the couple got engaged. —KIMBERLY STEELE
