Beyonce and Jay-Z are expecting their first child together in February and, even though the parents-to-be haven't confirmed it, sources are saying they are having a girl. What should Beyonce name her baby? We have rounded up our pick of 10 divalicious names for Beyonce's baby.
Sasha Fierce is the name of Beyonce's alter-ego, making it the perfect name for her baby girl. "Sasha Fierce is the fun, more sensual, more aggressive, more outspoken side and more glamorous side that comes out when I'm working and when I'm on the stage," she explains. The meaning of Sasha is just as strong, as it is a Russian name meaning "defender of man." Girl power!
Celebrities love to combine their names to create names for their children, such as Jayden and Willow Smith, the children of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith. Jayonce combines Beyonce and Jay-Z and could work equally well for a baby boy or baby girl.
The name Dereon would be a unique and cool name for Beyonce's baby. Named after her fashion line with her mother Tina Knowles, House of Dereon, which is a name of American origin that means "he who upholds good." The name could also be considered a family name, as it comes from Beyonce's maternity grandmother Agnez Dereon.
If Beyonce is having a baby girl, she might want to pass down her own middle name, Beyonce Giselle Knowles, to her daughter. Giselle is a German name which means, Pledge.
Bonnie or Clyde
Beyonce met her husband, Jay-Z, while working on the song "Bonnie and Clyde," which Jay-Z wrote and Kanye West produced for Jay-Z's album, The Blueprint. It only seems fitting that she name her baby girl Bonnie or her baby boy Clyde in honor of this fateful meeting.
Jay-Z may be feeling nostalgic and want to name his baby girl after his mother, Gloria Carter, who raised his as a single mom after his father abandoned the family. His mother bought him his first boom box, which sparked his interest in music and the rest is history.
Perhaps Beyonce wants her daughter to have a name that starts with the letter B, like her name. The name Brionne, which is an English name meaning flowering vine, would be a unique choice.
If Beyonce and Jay-Z have a boy, that may want to name him a name that starts with the letter J, after Jay-Z. Jax is a cool name that would be fitting for a hip baby that is destined to be a music superstar.
We know this baby is going to have a bright and shiny future, so why not give her a name that is as unique and destined for Hollywood as she will be? Shine is a unique name that stands all on its own.
Jay-Z, real name Shawn Carter, was given the nickname Jazzy growing up in Brooklyn, New York. That name developed into his stage name Jay-Z, however, if they have a boy, the name Jazzy is the perfect musical nickname to pass down.
