Nas Needs Help Choosing Son's Name

As Nas‘ wife, R&B singer Kelis, gets closer and closer to delivering the couple’s first child together, the rapper admits to having a hard time deciding on a name for their little one, a baby boy. “Yeah, [we are deciding between] a few baby names,” Nas said. “It’s kinda hard.” So hard, in fact, that the 35-year-old is considering letting his fans decide.

“I’ve been thinking about kinda putting something online: ‘Choose his name.’ You get a couple stacks for that. We take care of you for that. You win something real. But we’re thinking now.”

Kelis, who is due this summer, is “great, man. She’s doing good.”

Nas and Kelis were married in 2005. This will be the second child for Nas, who has a 15-year-old daughter, Destiny, from a previous relationship.

My cousin did that at her baby shower – gave us a list of 5 names to vote from. They chose the name with the highest votes. But of course, the vote wasn’t online and public so we could actually see the true results. Who knows if they just wanted to make us feel special, but already had a name picked out and went with it no matter what? đŸ™‚ I thought about that with my blog, but what if I decided to go a different route at the end, and all my family/friends already knew the name I was choosing wasn’t the most popular one? I didn’t like the second-guessing that could be involved.

I like my sons name…Damien Edward. Damien James sounds nice too. I like Michael too, but its rather plain. Gabriel and Elijah are cute. Believe it or not, those are the only boys names I like. I could have picked from 100 girls names lol.

I usually like putting names together like half of her name and half of Nas name. Kenas (keen as) could be cute name. Elisan (eli san)-(part of Kelis and Nas spelled backwards).

BAD IDEA. Mind you the names alot of celebs give their kids nowadays, perhaps the suggestion of a “regular” person (for you over sensitive people, that means NON-celeb) is not such a bad idea
