Sir Akwetey, Rumi Kehinde And Other Alternative African Middle Names Beyoncé Should've Used
From Ghana to Somalia, we share ideal middle names that could compliment Sir and Rumi.
DIASPORA—After a Yoruba inspired maternity photoshoot and an African themed push party, it was only right to assume Beyoncé would follow her passion for Mother Africa with some African names. To that end, we listed some African names that we were hoping Queen Bey would consider for her twins, whom she gave birth to over a month ago.
Yet, upon all our amazing suggestions, Queen Bey did not listen. Last weekend, we learned that she did not heed our advice. On June 13th, she gave birth to two—now famous—twins, naming them Rumi and Sir Carter, respectively.
But according to E! News, neither have a middle name.

To that end, we are once again inserting ourselves in her business, and advising her to use this opportunity to pick from the extensive list we previously offered her. From Tiawo and Kehinde to Akwele and Akwetey, the continent is full of meaningful names, perfect for twins.
We beg, Beyoncé, also known to us as Mama Ibeji, please check out the lovingly curated list of African names you can now use as middle names for Sir Carter and Rumi. From Ghana to Somalia, we share ideal names that could compliment Sir and Rumi, and commemorate Beyonce's love of Africa in a very real way.
