Readers Suggest Baby Names for Beyoncé Readers Suggest Baby Names for Beyoncé

Shawonyce Knowlique Carter, anyone?

Published August 29, 2011

Let's face it—Beyoncé and Jay-Z's unborn child is already a star. And, for the offspring of hip hop royalty, the right name is the first step in proper branding. After news broke that Bey and Hov are expecting, we asked readers to start coming up with names for Little Baby Knowles-Carter … and boy, did ya'll take the task seriously.

Most of the suggestions range from predictable (Shawn Carter, Jr.) to catchy (Jayshawn), but a few creative readers came up with names that sound more like they came from diss lyrics than a baby-naming book. The best of the worst?
