Rihanna and A$AP Rocky’s Baby Name Revealed

On Wednesday, The Daily Mail obtained a copy of the birth certificate of Rihanna and A$AP Rocky‘s first child, revealing the baby’s name. Rocky himself later confirmed the news. The British tabloid initially reported that the baby boy is named RZA Athelston Mayers. His first name pays homage to Wu-Tang Clan member RZA, while his middle name is shared with his father. Rocky took to Instagram on Saturday to celebrate his son’s birthday with a heartfelt post, confirming the name. In his caption, he wrote, “WU TANG IZ 4 DA CHUREN. HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY TO MY 1st BORN. RZA.”

Speculations about the baby’s name had been circulating among fans, with some suggesting Noah, while Rocky had previously mentioned that he might name his child Pharrell. Naming children after rappers is a tradition in Rocky’s family. His own real name is Rakim Athelston Mayers, inspired by the legendary rapper Rakim, known for his collaborations with Eric B.

Interestingly, Rakim himself had a memorable encounter with a fan who named her son after him. He recalled the experience during an interview with Hot 97 in 2019, sharing the story of driving through Harlem when a woman approached him and asked for his autograph for her son named Rakim. This encounter left a lasting impression on Rakim, describing it as a humbling experience.

With RZA Athelston Mayers being officially confirmed as the name of Rihanna and A$AP Rocky’s firstborn, fans can now celebrate alongside the proud parents on their son’s special day.
