Since welcoming her twins on April 30, Mariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon have kept mum on their new arrivals' names – until now.

The pop star has taken to Twitter with a big hint about what she has decided to call her little boy and girl, who she affectionately refers to as 'Dem Babies'.

"Both begin with M!!!" she told fans - who she calls her lambs or lambily – before asking her followers to submit their guesses.

Among the suggestions, some of Mariah's own nicknames, including Mimi, Mermaid and Mirage.

Michaela and Mandarin, Mirium and Mauritius, Marauder and Moesha, and also Michael and Marilyn – after the 42-year-old's idols, Jackson and Monroe - have also been put forward.

Before the cryptic posting, Mariah offered a heartfelt message to her fans.

"I wish I could personally thanks all those around the world who continue 2 send congrats + prayers for #dembabies," she wrote.

They're doing great."
