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.
Recently, we ran across Google’s search feature that allows celebrities and public figures to answer “most asked questions” about themselves, and apparently, people are eagerly searching for Miss Tina’s “real name.”
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.
There you have it! Facts from the fabulous mother of Beyoncé and Solange Knowles.
