Beyonce and Jay-Z are expecting a daughter soon (she may already be here), but if Tiana-May is not her name, here are my suggestions for the chic little baby-to-be.
I’m thinking its going to be a unique choice. Possibly a glitz and glammer name (meaning it will S-H-I-N-E), although I hope her name isn’t Sparkle or Glitter. 🙂 Her mother’s name is Beyonce, after all.
CELESTINE: Beyonce’s mother goes by Tina, but this is her real name. This would make a great middle name too. Celeste would work too.
ELECTRA: A brilliant choice for the couple. It means “shining” or “bright”. Or ILO, an African name meaning light, joyous, & sunshine.
EMERALD or SAPPHIRE: I can see Beyonce and Jay-Z being intrigued by these gorgeous jewels.
FATE, KISMET, or KARMA: Other words for Destiny.
GISELLE: Beyonce’s middle name.
KNOWLES: Possibly a better choice for a boy, but Beyonce’s name comes from her mom’s maiden name. This might be baby Carter’s middle name.
MALIKA: Malika means Queen. A perfect choice for music royalty.
MAYA: My safest (i.e. popular) choice for the couple. If they go “normal”, I could just see them with a little Maya. Plus, Maya Angelou is always a lovely namesake.
NINE: My wildcard, because numbers are cool. See Harper Seven.
SOLEIL: A way to honor little sis Solange. Plus, the French word for sun.
VIRELAI: Virelai is the name of a type of rhyming structure for poetry and songs that was popular in France during the Middle Ages and Renaissance. I saw this name on Bewitching Names and have been intrigued ever since. I think it would be perfect for this powerhouse couple.
I’m probably way off base, but it was fun coming up with a list of them. Do you like any of my choices? What do you think Beyonce and Jay-Z will name their daughter? I can’t wait to see what they choose.

Boheme. Ciel. Rouge.
What do these names have in common? They are all French words that have been used as first or middle names. Apparently, Prune (French for Plum) is being used over in France, but that one wouldn’t work over here for obvious reasons.
I’ll admit it. I love these. Paris is one of my favorite cities and I have a love for all things French, which is why I named our site Name Soiree. Girls Gone Child’s twins recently added to this list with the birth of twin daughters Boheme Shalom & Reverie Lux. Model Niki Taylor has a daughter named Ciel Taylor. Child actress (now all grown up) has the unusual appellation of Soleil Moon Frye.
CHERIE my dear, darling
J’AIME I love you
MIETTE small & sweet; crumb
