Rihanna and A$AP Rocky's second child's unique name has been revealed

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky’s second child’s unusual name has been revealed.

The popstar welcomed a little boy into the world last month, giving birth on 1 August at Cedar Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

And just as with her last child, fans have been waiting to find out what the couple have decided to call him.

However, RiRi and Rocky have remained tight lipped, no doubt up to their necks in diapers.

But finally, after some digging by The Blast, the name has been released, and it's fairly unique.

Rihanna's newborn is called... Riot Rose Mayers!

According to reports, the name is thought to be a reference to to A$AP’s song 'Riot', which he released back in July with Pharrell Williams.

Since the news broke, fans have taken to social media to react to the name.

One person joked: "I can’t believe Rihanna named her baby Riot, that was my daughter name man smh."

Another quipped: "Now why tf would you steal my baby’s name? @rihanna."

It comes a few months after the name of their first child - RZA Athelston Mayers - was revealed almost a year after he was born.

RZA is an homage to the de facto leader of the Wu-Tang Clan, Athelston is the same middle name as his dad and Mayers is A$AP's last name as well.

According to Vulture, there is a long line of people in the rapper's family being named after famous musicians.

A$AP's first name, Rakim, is from the legendary rapper and producer of the very same name.

The first Rakim, who is responsible for albums like Paid in Full, Follow the Leader, Let the Rhythm Hit 'Em, and Don't Sweat the Technique, revealed he met Mayers when he was driving around Harlem.

“I remember a long time ago, driving through Harlem. A lady walks across the street. I’m at the light, she walks across the street. She got the carriage and everything,” Rakim told Hot 97.

"She says can ‘you sign this for me?’ I never say no. I say ‘what’s him name?’ Rakim. I’m like word?

"She’s like Rakim. I sign the joint, I remember that day, cause that was the first time hearing someone named their son after me. Like I said, humbling experience.”
