In a touching family tribute, mom-to-be Janet Jackson will honor her two late brothers in naming her baby!

RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively that the pop diva, 50, will name her child "Michael Brandon" — after the late King of Pop and her brother Marlon's twin, Brandon, who died at birth.

"Janet will honor both Michael and Brandon," a family insider revealed. "It's something that her husband, Wissam Al Mana, agreed to when she got pregnant."

According to another source, billionaire businessman Wissam is a "traditional Muslim who believes the man makes all of the decisions and the wife must abide by them."

Despite that, Wissam granted "permission" for the "Control" singer to honor her brothers, the source said.

The baby, due in late December, will still have a Muslim first and last name, said a Jackson family insider.

"Michael Brandon will be in the middle," the source dished. "The child will have a name given by Wissam, and will take Wissam's last name."

Janet canceled her concert tour this year, telling fans it was doctors' orders so that she and Wissam could start a family.
