Rihanna and A$AP Rocky’s second son’s name has been revealed a month after his birth.

According to documents obtained by The Blast, the power couple have chosen to name their newborn son Riot Rose Mayers. The couple opted to keep with their naming tradition, using yet another moniker that started with an ‘R’, after naming their first son RZA Athelston Mayers. RZA’s name holds a special significance, paying tribute to the renowned Wu-Tang Clan member, RZA.


Riot’s unique name, on the other hand, has sparked curiosity and intrigue, leaving fans wondering about its origins and significance.

One Twitter user couldn’t help but question the choice, saying, “Why name a boy Riot Rose? And his big brother’s name is RZA, which I know is a Wu-Tang tribute, but still. I’ve always thought, esp since I’ve worked in a hospital, there should be laws about what you can – cannot name your child. All her $ won’t stop him from being teased.”

Another Twitter user had a different take, exclaiming,, “Rihanna naming her second son Riot Rose is the most Rihanna thing ever!”

One theory that’s been circulating is that Riot’s name may be a nod to A$AP Rocky’s recent musical venture. Earlier this year, he released a song titled ‘Riot,’ featuring the legendary Pharrell Williams. Could it be that the song left such an impression on the couple that they decided to name their son after it? It’s a possibility, given the close ties that artists often have with their work.

Riot made his entrance into the world on August 1st at 7:41 a.m. at Cedar Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles. It’s worth noting that this date contradicts an earlier report by TMZ, which claimed that the birth occurred on August 3.
