Since welcoming their newborn twins (a boy and a girl) into the world on Saturday afternoon, first-time parents Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon have kept mum on their babies' names...until now.

The singer took to her Twitter Tuesday with the tweet, "So we r bout 2 reveal the actual names and b4 we tell em 2 our friends etc. I had 2 C if any of the #lambily wanted 2 guess!!!"

To up the suspense factor, she added, "Both begin w/ M!!! :)"

Carey's Twitter followers have joined right in on the guessing game with names like Michelle, Markell, Michael, and even Mariah.

The 42-year-old has been known to allude mystery and was coined with the nickname "Mirage" back in high school. So it's no surprise that she and Cannon, 30, are being cryptic for this much-anticipated information about their babies. And with a slew of nicknames that start with "M" herself, (Mimi and Mermaid are among them), we can't say we're surprised.

But one thing that isn't a mystery is how elated Carey is to be a mom.

"I wish I could personally thank all those around the world who continue to send congrats and prayers," she gushed to fans via Twitter. "They're doing great and are the most incredible gifts we could ever have imagined!"

According to Carey's rep, the baby girl was born first on April 30 around noon at an L.A. hospital, weighing in at 5 pounds, 3 ounces and measuring 18 inches long; her brother followed, weighing in at 5 pounds, 6 ounces, and 19 inches long.
