Rihanna’s baby son’s Wu-Tang Clan-inspired name is FINALLY revealed after she kept fans


The name of Rihanna‘s baby son can finally be revealed after she kept it secret for nearly a year.

DailyMail.com has exclusive obtained a copy of the little boy’s certificate of live birth, revealing he is named RZA Athelston Mayers.

The child, whom the 35-year-old pop superstar shares with her partner A$AP Rocky, was apparently named in honor of the producer and rapper RZA, the leader of the Wu-Tang Clan.

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.

Fans had recently speculated that the little boy might have been named Noah, but there were few indications of his true name.

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.

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

RZA almost had an opportunity to collaborate with Rihanna, but on screen instead of in the studio.

Back in 2008, the rapper told MTV News — which is now being shut down by Paramount Global after a 36-year run — that he hoped to film a remake of the 1985 kung-fu comedy The Last Dragon with Rihanna appearing in it.

She would have taken on the role of a video show host and singer, much like in the original film.

‘That’s the one I’m rooting for,’ he said of the Barbados-born songstress. ‘We’re keeping that same concept of the girl being in the music business.’

However, in a fit of particularly bad taste, RZA later suggested to XXL in 2009 that Rihanna’s ex Chris Brown should star with her in the film, even though he had beaten her severely enough to require a trip to the hospital just months earlier.

The film, which had already cast Samuel L. Jackson, never came to fruition.

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.

On record: Rihanna's partner Rocky is definitely a Wu-Tang, as he previously collaborated with Raekwon from the rap group on the 2015 song Fly International Luxurious Art
