Neil deGrasse Tyson Suggested Some Out Of This World Names For Beyoncé's Twins

On Twitter the astrophysicist gave name suggestions all inspired by the universe. 


In addition to being a world-renowned astrophysicist, Neil deGrasse Tyson is more than likely a member of the Beyhive.

The scientist, who has 7.1 million followers on Twitter, decided to have some fun on Wednesday by suggesting universe-inspired names for Beyoncé’s twins.

In February, the singer announced that she was pregnant with twins. Since the announcement was made, the 35-year-old fully embraced her growing belly in great fashion and inspired performances. And fans have been equally excited trying to guess the babies’ sex and name options.

In a series of tweets deGrasse Tyson gave his two cents on baby names with these cosmic suggestions.



By the amount of likes the received some favorites were “Terra” & “Luna” Latin for Earth & Moon; “Castor” & “Pollux” the brightest stars of the constellation Gemini; “Zenith” & “Nadir” the points directly above your head and directly below your feet on the sky; and “Aster” & “Roid” where deGrasse said he was running out of ideas. 



Less popular options were “Spirit” & “Opportunity” the twin intrepid @NASA rovers on Mars; “Perigee” & “Apogee”  the nearest and farthest points from Earth in the Moon’s oval orbit; and “Elgenubi” & “Eschamali” from the constellation Libra, the Scales.

While there’s been no word on what Bey plans to name her kids or their sex, when they arrive, it’s clear they’ll be welcomed with love.
