Update: Mariah Carey's Husband Responds

Nick Cannon, aka Mr. Mariah Carey, has responded to questions about his children's names, Monroe and Moroccan Scott. Apparently he was surprised by the online "controversy" (no doubt generated by this blog).

According to an interview on the PopEater site:
Obviously, my wife has always been inspired by Marilyn Monroe...she bought her priceless piano and all that stuff. And I just like the idea that is was more than just naming our daughter Marilyn. I think that would've been a little too cliché. Monroe is a very strong name — it sounds really elegant.
I guess it's "cliché" to name your child after the first name of someone you respect.

But this only spotlights the missed opportunity. Who wouldn't want a beautiful baby girl named Mortenson?
