What has Rihanna named her baby boy?

The name of Rihanna's baby boy was confirmed almost a year after his birth, on May 10 the birth certificate for Riri and A$AP's child was released and revealed the name to be RZA Athelston Mayers.

The title is inspired by hip-hop's Wu-Tang Clan; RZA is the name of the lead member of the musical group.

As Rihanna didn't confirm the name of her son for quite some time, it was long assumed that the name was Noah Mayers, it was the number one Google search result in the months leading up the birth certificate's release.

Mayers is A$AP Rocky's last name, as his real name is Rakim Mayers.

An insider previously told Us Weekly back in February that she wants her Barbados heritage to play a part in the name selection process as her beau also has a Bajan background.

The source said: “Rihanna wants her Barbados heritage honoured when she names her child, [as well as] ASAP’s roots.

“They want both of their cultures included. It is very important to them to keep where they are from passed down to their child."

Some fans had speculated that the name would honour a family member of Rih’s after she named her makeup and skin range after her surname, Fenty.

The insider went on to say that Rihanna ‘has admiration for so many strong women and men in her family’ and that she has ‘a lot of names to pick from for a starting point’.
