Goof Troop Nicki Wants To Name The Baby What???

- By Bossip Staff

If you were Nick Cannon, knowing full well that you have no connection left to the hood at this point, you’d probably try to reclaim your status by giving your retirement-plan-progeny a “traditionally black name” too. But you we’re pretty sure you wouldn’t have gone with…

Cleophis. And while we wouldn’t put it past Nicki-poo…

Luckily, Nick was only joking about the moniker (or at least, we hope he was only joking).

“We always picked out a few [baby] names,” he explained. “From the day we met, we picked out names…because ironically we had the same last initial—Carey and Cannon. So what name…just having fun…what names would go good?”

In the interview airing Friday, Cannon said that he and Mariah had in fact chosen a name for their baby, but aren’t saying what until the stork arrives and they get the chance to meet their bundle of joy—and yes, he alternately refers to the baby situation in both plural and singular terms, so don’t go expecting any clarification on those twin rumors from him.

“We picked them out, so we are sticking to it. So far, so far,” he said. “I heard they tend to change. I heard you never let anyone know the name. People start to weigh in on it and I heard that, you know, once it actually happens, the name…”

Sidenote: choosing names from the day you met? As scary as it sounds, we KNEW she only married that fool for his sperm.

    He was right about keeping the name to themselves. People will offer up advice in a heart beat but once the shoe is on the other foot they don’t want you telling them anything. Then there are the relatives who want you to name your kid after their shady behinds or those who are telling you to name the kid after a shady relative. A kid shouldn’t be set up for failure like that.

    Leave them alone – at least they got married first before having kids not like Wayne and Dwight…

    Mis-match or not – Nick and Mariah are good to each other and he at least keeps Mariah in remembrance that she is black, cause sometimes she seems to forget that fact.
