Neil deGrasse Tyson Has Some Cosmic Name Suggestions For Beyonce and Jay Z’s Twins

Everyone and their mother around the world went crazy when Beyonce and Jay Z announced they were having twins a few months back. Now people are wondering what the twins will be named, especially after their first daughter was named Blue Ivy, and one of those people happens to be one of the biggest celebrity scientists around and the space man himself, Neil deGrasse Tyson.

Neil deGrasse Tyson loves science, especially space, and uses Twitter a lot to debunk science-fiction films on their depiction of realistic science. Let’s just say that he doesn’t really like Star Wars, but likes Star Trek. This time, however, he took to Twitter to give Beyonce and Jay-Z some name suggestions for their soon-to-be-born twins — and guess what: they’re based on space. He has quite a few, some good, some bad. Here are his suggestions…

A good start. The names got flare and I can see these being good choices if it’s a boy “Phobos” and a girl “Deimos.”

Not bad. I can see this working if the twins are girls.

Hey maybe George Clooney and Salma Hayek will be the godparents. (Sorry if you don’t get the movie joke.)

My personal favorite.

Now you are losing me, Neil. We don’t live in Middle Earth.

Um, don’t think Beyonce is going to name her twins after something that looks like a hamburger and a hot dog. Also sounds like these can be medicine for prostate problems.

Better, but I like some of the others more. On to the last one he suggests.

Yeah, not very creative. My vote is for Castor and Pollux or Phobos and Deimos. I would rock any of those names, and maybe so will Beyonce and Jay Z.
