Mariah Carey delivered twins on Saturday, but the diva still hasn't revealed her little ones' names.

But that didn't stop the singer from taking to Twitter to stir up some guesses. Promising to reveal all soon, the singer first teased her fans.

"So we r bout 2 reveal the actual names and b4 we tell em 2 our friends etc.," she Tweeted. "I had 2 C if any of the #lambily wanted 2 guess!!!"

Next, the singer – who calls her ardent fans "lambs" – prodded the public to throw out some good guesses.

"The game continues!!!! This crew is a lil slow..lil slow...! Coming up next-the initials...I love the #lambily!!!!" she Tweeted.

Finally, Carey, 42, revealed one clue about the names: "both begin w/M's!!!! :)"

There's still no word on what her baby boy and baby girl will be called, but one Tweet-happy fan was quick with a few guesses, suggesting, "Michaela (girl) & Mandarin (boy)/ Miriam (girl) & Mauritius (boy)/Marjorie (girl) & Marauder (boy)/Moesha (girl) & Maui (boy)."

Before all the subterfuge, Carey offered a heartfelt message to her fans, Tweeting, "I wish I could personally thank all those around the world who continue 2 send congrats+prayers for #dembabies! They're doing great and they are the most incredible gifts we could ever have imagined."
