Name of Rihanna’s Son Leaked

The world has finally learned that “RZA” is the the name of Rihanna and A$AP Rocky’s baby boy.

Since the birth of Rihanna’s baby boy last May, fans all over social media have been speculating the name of her firstborn child. Rihanna joined rapper Nicki Minaj (who only refers to her son as Papa Bear) in concealing the name of their children for privacy reasons. Unfortunately, Rihanna fans grew impatient and managed to leak baby Fenty’s name just a year after he was born. Reporters from the Daily Mail have leaked baby Fenty’s birth certificate, revealing that the child of musicians A$AP Rocky and Rihanna is named RZA (pronounced as Rizza), after the legendary leader of the 90s Hip-hop group: the Wu-Tang Clan.  The child’s full name is RZA Athelston Mayers, sharing his middle name with his father A$AP Rocky.

This unexpected announcement further supported my belief that in this day and age, celebrities are somewhat expected to name their children something unique or unusual.  Here are some of the most eccentric celebrity baby names in recent years:

Blue Ivy, Rumi, and Sir Carter – Children of musicians Beyonce and Jay Z

Aire Webster – Son of socialite Kylie Jenner and musician Travis Scott

Jupiter Seaborn Sheeran – Daughter of singer Ed Sheeran

North, Chicago, Psalm, and Saint West – Children of socialite Kim Kardashian and musician Kanye West

Brave Hardwick – Son of actor Omari Hardwick

X Æ A-Xii and Exa Dark Sidrael Musk – Children of billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk and musician Grimes

Powerful Queen, Legendary Love, Halo Marie, Beautiful Zeppelin, Onyx Ice Cole, Zillion Heir, Rise Messiah, and Zion Mixolydian – Children of actor and TV host Nick Cannon

As society moves away from more traditional names, I’m excited to see what celebrities or even everyday people will be naming their children next.
