Tina Knowles Lawson Tells Beyoncé's Fans Her Real Name With A Google Cameo

The 66-year-old shared the facts to Google’s “most asked question.”

True members of the BeyHive know that Beyoncé’s full name is Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter. 

Just in case you didn’t know, Bey’s first name serves as a tribute to mother Tina Knowles-Lawson' French maiden name Beyincé (pronounced, "bay-EN-say”).

While that may be a common fact, apparently fans of the “Flawless” singer want to know more about Queen Bey’s mother.

No worries. Flaunting her signature red lipstick, the 66-year-old mother of two yielded the details.

“Hi, my real name is, Tina Beyincé Knowles-Lawson. Célestine is my real name. I’m sure that’s what you’re asking,” Mrs. Tina shared during the selfie-style video. “But, as a kid, my last name being Beyincé was a big name. I wanted my name to be ‘Linda Smith’.”

She explained, “That was the time. It wasn’t cool to have an odd name. And my name was Célestine Beyincé, so I change it in the sixth grade to Tina, which I thought was way cooler.”

“So it is actually Célestine Beyincé Knowles Lawson,” the Texas-born beauty concluded with a smile.
