Mariah Carey Set on Baby Names

She's not even pregnant, but Mariah Carey revealed Tuesday that she and husband Nick Cannon have already selected a name for their future baby. So what name does the songstress have in mind?

“We have to keep the name secret because if we told everybody, then somebody might use it and then we have to change it, and then it wouldn’t be as good,” she said Tuesday on SIRIUS XM’s Morning Mash Up. “We picked these names out a long time ago.”

We're betting more than a few NameCandy readers can identify with Mariah's point of view.  What names have you long kept in reserve for future children you may or may not actually have? Do you worry about friends "stealing" your name?

I always thought that I was unique for loving Olivia, Sophia, Isabella... turns out a lot of other people love those names too -- all three are in the top ten most popular girls names right now! So keeping my preferences a secret would probably make little difference!

the limelight, as the Kardashians get their fair share of attention. Reality TV will do that. Do the names in Kourtney's family give us any clues?
