While Tiana–May might be a pretty name, we’re frankly hoping for something more original, more exotic, more – well, more like Beyoncé itself from the woman who made her own unique name a household word.
Inventive names run in Beyoncé’s family. Her sister’s name is Solange Piaget. Solange is a French saint’s name that means “solemn.” The Knowles’ girls’ maternal grandparents were named Lumis and Agnez.
Beyoncé has even created an alter-ego with an imposing name: Sasha Fierce, whom she’s described as super-confident and fearless in a way she could never be.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z are rumored to be expecting a baby girl. What will her name be? A creative twist on Beyoncé’s maiden name, like Knola, or on her grandmother’s maiden name Dereon? An energetic unisex alias ala Sasha – Rory, perhaps, or Dasha? Or maybe Shawn Jr. for a boy or a girl?
Or maybe Beyoncé and Jay-Z will discover an exotic name like Suri, the choice of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, or use a name with a private meaning such as Shiloh, the secret name Angelina Jolie once used for herself and later gave to her daughter?
What’s your guess? One-of-a-kind, invented, accented, umlauted, or unexpectedly sedate? We’d love to hear your most creative choices and imaginative ideas. Winner — or whoever gets closest — gets a copy of our book Beyond Ava & Aiden, for further inspiration!
