(Newser) – Mariah Carey gave birth to a set of twins on Saturday, and their names have finally been revealed. And with names like Moroccan and Monroe, good luck guessing which is the boy and which is the girl. Carey's website reveals that only one has a middle name, which sheds a little light on the matter: Mariah and Nick Cannon's son is Moroccan Scott Cannon; Scott is Nick's middle name and the maiden name of his grandmother. As for where "Moroccan" came from, it's best said by the singer's site:

"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!" Yep, seriously. Mariah has no middle name so neither does daughter Monroe, who was named after Marilyn Monroe, Mariah's life-long inspiration. The births coincided with the couple's third anniversary, and the whole family listened to Carey's We Belong Together afterward. Carey is either 41 or 42 according to wire service accounts, and Cannon is 30. Click to read more.
