Even if you find the humor of Saturday Night Live, in 2018, to be largely unfortunate (just me?) the cast and crew truly knocked it out of the park Saturday, April 7 with help from (honestly it would’ve been nothing without her) rapper Cardi B, pop culture’s sole savior. The “Bodak Yellow” talent blessed 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York City with a performance of her latest single, the foreboding “Be Careful,” while rocking a baby bump—confirming a long-rumored pregnancy with longtime boyfriend, Offset of rap trio Migos. It was something to behold, and you can check it out here.


The confirmation of what we all hoped to be true (Cardi Baby!) inspired another question, one I have whenever a really famous, really rich, really hot person announces a pregnancy: what will she name her kid? The biological gender presentation currently unknown, and we certainly don’t know what names she’s considering—honestly, it’s a gift that she finally revealed her bump at all—but I love to offer suggestions. Like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s baby No. 3 (Chicago West) and Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott’s baby No. 1 (Stormi Webster) before her, I thought it would be fun to go ahead and suggest some baby names for Bacardi’s wee child. So, B, if you’re reading this, I’ve got some ideas:

10.) Carolina (like her sister’s nickname)

9.) Yaritza

8.) Lauryn (like Lauryn Hill?)

7.) Corazon

6.) Dominique

5.) Kiari (after Offset’s birth name)

4.) Kendrell (see #5)

3.) Georgia

2.) Atlanta

1.) Bronx

There isn’t much method to this madness, but one thing’s for sure—that baby is going to be cute as hell.
