Nick Cannon’s children unquestionably have some truly unique and beautiful names. Well, in a recent interview, the Wild ‘N Out star explained the meaning behind all 12 kids names and it is pretty interesting and eye-opening.


Moroccan and Monroe: (Mother is Mariah Carey)

“Moroccan and Monroe was real cool ’cause that’s what Mariah and I came up with and, you know, the Moorish Moroccan vibe was always something we talked about. And then Monroe, Mariah loves Marilyn Monroe. And then we call them Roc and Roe, sounds like Rock n’ Roll, so that was always cool.”

Golden, Powerful Queen, and Rise: (Mother is Brittany Bell)

“Then, there was Golden, who really is like the golden child. [That] kid is a genius. And then, his sister is Powerful, Powerful Queen, so [their] names kind of go together, as well as the youngest of me and Brittany’s children, Rise, so it’s like all of those names kind of go together.”

Zion, Zillion, and Beautiful Zeppelin: (Mother is Abby De La Rosa)

“With Abby… her name starts with an A, she wanted to have children with Z names, so it was like, Zion and Zillion. And then, we were gonna go [with] Zeppelin for our daughter, ’cause it was gonna be all three [Z names], but I was like, ‘She’s so beautiful. That’s her name. It was like, Beautiful Zeppelin.”

Legendary Love: (Mother is Bre Tiesi)

In the interview, Cannon said that his son Legendary’s name was inspired by his bond with Legendary’s mother, real estate agent/model, Bre Tiesi.

“[It was like], what we doing is legendary. We got legendary love. We call him LL.”

Onyx Ice: (Mother is LaNisha Cole)

“And then with LaNisha, who is a strong Black woman and loves her chocolate-ness and all that, she had the name Onyx [already]. I was like, ‘I’m with it, let’s get it!’ And then I threw on the ‘ice cold’ ’cause her name was cold.”

Zen and Halo Marie: (Mother is Alyssa Scott)

If you remember, Zen passed away on December 5, 2021 from an aggressive form of brain cancer at only five-months-old. Halo is the couple’s rainbow baby and her name reflects that sentiment and honor.

“We got to have a rainbow baby after that, that we got a chance to name Halo. So, it all comes together, it all makes sense.”

So, is the father of 12 ready to call it quits? Not yet.  Cannon recently said that “God will decide” on when it’s time for him to stop having kids.

We have no doubt that the next Cannon to come into the world will have a beautiful, unique, and thoughtful name just as their brothers and sisters already do.
