53 – the leader of the Wu-Tang Clan – the American hip hop collective formed in Staten Island in 1992.

Fans had recently speculated that the little boy might have been named Noah, but there were few indications of his true name.

Notably, the certificate of live birth indicates that RZA was given his father’s middle name of Athelston.

However, Rocky’s middle name has previously been listed by multiple outlets as ‘Athelaston.’

Athelstan is a masculine name of English origin, meaning ‘noble stone.’

It is derived from the Old English æþele and stān, which translate to ‘noble’ and ‘stone,’ respectively. Athelstan is closely linked to Anglo-Saxon nobility, with the first king of England sharing this aristocratic moniker.

The certificate of live birth also indicates that RZA was born at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

One of Rihanna’s recent hints about her son’s secret name was on April 5, when she was seen carrying the beaming boy while wearing a baggy black Wu-Tang Clan top as she was seen leaving a meal at Giorgio Baldi in Santa Monica.

The Umbrella singer wasn’t particularly subtle on August 12 of last year, nearly three months after she gave birth, when she stepped out in New York City in a baggy white RZA T-shirt.
