Beyonce's Twins' Names Predictions Based On Gemini, Because Theories Are Flying

Ad failed to load

Beyoncé's twins reportedly arrived last week, and fans have been going bananas for information on the two babies. Sadly for the curious, Beyoncé and JAY-Z have kept (understandably) mum about their new arrivals — which means the public has simply had to come up with its own predictions and theories about the twins. My personal favorite? Guessing Beyonce's twins' names based on Gemini references, since she gave birth to actual Gemini twins. Ready to meet the real-life Castor and Pollux, anyone?

Romper reached out to Beyoncé's rep to confirm the twins' birth, but did not hear back immediately. However, according to People, Blue Ivy's baby siblings were born last week, and Beyoncé's dad tweeted a congratulatory note on Sunday that seemed to confirm the news. According to TMZ, the twins were born prematurely (a frequent occurrence when it comes to pregnancies with multiple babies), and they've had to remain in the Los Angeles hospital where Beyoncé reportedly gave birth.

It's completely understandable that Beyoncé and JAY-Z have remained tight-lipped about the latest additions to their family, but in the meantime, that means we get to make wagers on what they'll name their new kids. Here are some of the best Gemini-related names for you to place your bets on. (Word of warning: I would strongly recommend not gambling away your life savings on these.)

Castor & Gemma

Castor and Pollux are the twins from Greek mythology that the Gemini constellation was named after. Since Beyoncé's twins are rumored to be a baby boy and a baby girl, we can use the name Castor for the boy and Gemma for the girl. Gemma, of course, is a shout-out to the Geminid meteor shower — one of the most impressive annual shows you can catch.

Aria & Samir

Gemini is a sign associated with the element of air, so the Lemonade star — famous for her love of symbolism and hints — could choose air-related names for her kids. Aria is Italian for "air" (and also sounds like a Game of Thrones favorite character, so it gains marks in the trendy department), while Samir means "wind" in Sanskrit. Personally, I think Sam and Aria Carter sound like a pretty dynamic duo.

Pollux & Alhena

Pollux is not only the second twin in the Castor-Pollux Greek myth, but one of the brightest stars in the Gemini constellation. Another star, Alhena, doesn't fall far behind. (Pollux was also called Polydeuces, depending on which myth you're looking into, but we all know that Beyoncé would never saddle a child with a name like that.)

Thomas & Gemina

If you want to get really literal, Thomas and Gemina both mean "twin," according to Confetti.

Angelica & Ryder

Both names mean "messenger," which is associated with Mercury, Gemini's ruling planet. In Greek mythology, Mercury was the winged messenger god. His name was Hermes in the myths, but something tells me Beyoncé wouldn't give her son a name that people more frequently associate with designer handbags.

No matter what Beyoncé and JAY-Z end up naming their Gemini twins, though, the world's definitely going to have opinions about the monikers — and the names will likely inspire a whole new generation of kids named after them.
