We at Celebritology would like to make a few guesses about what Carey and Cannon named their little bundles of joy. Check them out after the jump, then add your own by posting a comment.

Sarah Anne Hughes
Mickey and Minnie: Because having names approved by Disney can’t hurt.
Mimi and Mirage: Although I don’t think Carey would give her own name to the twins, I could see her using two of her nicknames.
Money and Music: Good names for the children of filthy-rich performers.

Jen Chaney
Mary and Moses: As their recent blessing from the Rev. Al Sharpton reinforces, these two are very religious, after all.
M&M: A tribute to the delicious candies that melt in your mouth, not in your hands. Or perhaps, a strange nod to Carey’s former short-lived flame, Eminem. Although I’m not sure Cannon would approve of that.
Mariah 1 and Mariah 2: Unlike Sarah, I actually do think Carey might name a child after herself. Both of them. Even though one is a boy.
