Mariah Carey gave birth to twins (a boy and a girl) on Saturday April 30, but no one knew what the babies were named — until now!

Earlier this week, Mrs. Nick Cannon teased that both the names started with “M,” but what exactly are their bundles of joy named?

Showbiz Tonight reports that the boy is named Moroccan Scott and the girl is Monroe.

So why Moroccan if the baby isn’t … you know, Moroccan? CNN’s Marquee blog explains:

The top tier of Mariah’s New York City apartment is called the Moroccan Room, because of the Moroccan-inspired decor. It’s also the place where Nick proposed to his wife, overlooking Manhattan!

As for the daughter, Carey’s rep says that “Monroe was named after Marilyn Monroe, who has been an inspiration to Mariah her whole life.” The rep also added : “It has been a long, emotional journey for this family, and I couldn’t be happier for all of them.”

Definitely different, but relatively tame when it comes to the world of crazy celebrity baby names.
