When he’s born, the youngster will be named “Michael Brandon.” It’s Janet’s way of honoring both Michael and Marlon’s twin brother, Brandon, who died at birth.
“Janet will honor both Michael and Brandon,” a family insider said. “It’s something that her husband, Wissam Al Mana, agreed to when she got pregnant.”

Speaking of Wissam, who the source described as a “traditional Muslim who believes the man makes all of the decisions and the wife must abide by them,” reportedly gave “permission” for Jackson to name the boy after her brothers. However, the little boy will still have a Muslim first and last name.
“Michael Brandon will be in the middle,” the source explained. “The child will have a name given by Wissam, and will take Wissam’s last name.”
