Baby names inspired by Beyonce and Jay-Z

Written by Mary Fetzer   

The golden couple of music, Beyoncé and Jay-Z, have spent a lot of times in the headlines lately. Rumors of tensions between them, of her hunt for her own multi-million-dollar apartment and of their inevitable split have tainted their current On the Run Tour. But we have more positive hopes for the talented couple, and would even like to see them give daughter Blue Ivy a sibling. Furthermore, we think that new baby should bear a name inspired by one of their fabulous songs.

Beyoncé's Songs

The real name of the former Destiny's Child singer is Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter. Her albums include Carmen: A Hip Hopera and I Am… Sasha Fierce. Beyoncé also contributed to The Katrina CD as well as Hope for Haiti Now. Along with these albums, we think some of her song titles provide fantastic, strong-woman inspiration for a baby name:

  • "Amor Gitano" with Alejandro Fernandez (Viento a favor, 2007)
  • "Ave Maria" (I Am… Sasha Fierce, 2008)
  • "Diva" (I Am… Sasha Fierce, 2008)
  • "Gift from Virgo" (Dangerously in Love, 2003)
  • "Halo" featuring Chris Martin (Hope for Haiti Now, 2010)
  • "Heaven" (Beyoncé, 2013)
  • "Honesty" (I Am… Sasha Fierce, 2009)
  • "Kitty Kat" (B'Day, 2006)
  • "Lorell Loves Jimmy" with Anika Noni Rose and Sharon Leal (Dreamgirls, 2006)
  • "No Angel" (Beyoncé, 2013)
  • Pepsi's "Carmen" (2003)
  • "Rocket" (Beyoncé, 2013)
  • "Save the Hero" (I Am… Sasha Fierce, 2008)

Jay-Z's Songs

Jay-Z, aka Shawn Corey Carter, married Beyoncé in 2008. The music mogul has won 19 Grammys and sold more than 75 million records. Forbes estimates the rapper and record producer's worth to be $520 million. Jay-Z has inspired countless musical performers, and his songs can inspire your baby name selection, too:

  • "Brooklyn Go Hard" featuring Santogold (Notorious soundtrack, 2009)
  • "Cashmere Thoughts" (Reasonable Doubt, 1996)
  • "Diamond is Forever" (The Blueprint 2: The Gift and the Curse, 2002)
  • "From Marcy to Hollywood" featuring Memphis Bleek and Sauce Money (The Players Club soundtrack, 1998)
  • "Glory" featuring daughter Blue Ivy Carter (2012)
  • "Honey" with R. Kelly (The Best of Both Worlds, 2002)
  • "Izzo" (The Blueprint, 2001)
  • "Lucifer" (The Black Album, 2003)
  • "Otis" with Kanye West (Watch the Throne, 2011)
  • "S. Carter" featuring Amil (Vol 3… Life and Times of S. Carter, 1999)
  • "Tom Ford" featuring Beyoncé (Magna Carta… Holy Grail, 2013)
  • "Venus vs. Mars" (The Blueprint 3, 2009)
