after named baby after rapper!Here's how you REALLY pronounce Rihanna's son's name
2023/05/11

Rihanna's son's name was revealed to be RZA Athelston Mayers,according to DailyMail's exclusive report. The one-year-old boy, whom Rihanna shares with A$AP Rocky, was named after the Wu-Tang Clan leader and producer RZA.

Although fans may assume the name is pronounced by saying the letters R-Z-A or 'Razor', it is actually pronounced 'Rizza' like the famous rapper. Rihanna appears to have hinted at her son's name after his birth on May 13 last year, wearing Wu-Tang Clan-themed clothing multiple times.

"Rihanna's son's name was finally revealed as RZA - after the star kept it a secret for more than a year," They obtained a copy of the birth certificate, showing the full name as RZA Athelston Mayers.

Rihanna named her baby boy after the hip hop legend RZA, leader of the Wu-Tang Clan, perhaps as a tribute to the rap group. While the name may seem like it's pronounced 'R-Z-A' or 'Razor,' it's actually said like 'Rizza,' the same way the famous rapper's name is pronounced. 

Rihanna dropped hints about her newborn's name, being spotted wearing Wu-Tang Clan gear repeatedly since giving birth on May 13 last year. “Rihanna appears to have hinted at her son's name following his birth on May 13 of last year, as she has worn clothing repping Wu-Tang Clan multiple times since giving birth,” DailyMail wrote.

Overall, Rihanna's new baby with A$AP Rocky has been named RZA, in honor of the Wu-Tang Clan's RZA. Although the name is spelled with three letters, it's pronounced 'Rizza.' Rihanna hinted at the name through wearing Wu-Tang Clan clothing after giving birth last May. The secret name was finally revealed on the baby's birth certificate.

Notably, the certificate of live birth indicates that RZA was given his father's middle name of Athelston.

However, Rocky's middle name has previously been listed by multiple outlets as 'Athelaston.'

The certificate of live birth also indicates that RZA was born at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

One of Rihanna's recent hints about her son's secret name was on April 5, when she was seen carrying the beaming boy while wearing a baggy black Wu-Tang Clan top as she was seen leaving a meal at Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica.

The Umbrella singer wasn't particularly subtle on August 12 of last year, nearly three months after she gave birth, when she stepped out in New York City in a baggy white RZA T-shirt.

The extent of Rihanna's fandom for RZA and the rest of the Wu-Tang Clan isn't totally clear.

Her partner Rocky is definitely a fan, though, as he previously collaborated with Raekwon from the rap group on the 2015 song Fly International Luxurious Art.

A$AP Mob, the collective that Rocky belongs to, also earned comparisons to the legendarily hip hop group early in its existence.

Big fan? While fans may think her son's name is simply pronounced by reciting the letters R-Z-A, it is actually pronounced 'Rizza' like the famous rapper (RZA pictured in April 2023) 

Under the radar: Rihanna and her partner A$AP Rocky welcomed the baby boy on May 13 of last year, but she has so far kept his name a secret from her inquisitive fans

Like Wu-Tang, it features a string of high-profile core members, along with peripheral members who are featured less frequently.

It's unclear if Rihanna plans to be as secretive about her second child's name.

She revealed that she and Rocky were expecting again when she debuted a new baby bump during her show-stopping Super Bowl halftime performance on February 12 in Glendale, Arizona.

During her stunning appearance at the Met Gala with her boyfriend, Rihanna shared with ET that her latest pregnant was 'so different' from the first one.

'No cravings. Tons of nausea. Everything's different, but I'm enjoying it,' she explained.

She added that she was 'in love' with her littlest one. 'I'm obsessed and I don't even feel guilty about it,' she said.
