Beyoncé’s Uncle Reveals Where The Singer Got Her Name
At the premier of Beyoncé’s HBO documentary “Life Is But a Dream,” her maternal uncle, Roland Beyince, revealed that the singer’s name was inspired by his side of the family.
“My sister Tina [Knowles] didn’t think we had enough boys in the family to keep the [Beyince] name going, so she gave Beyoncé our last name as the first name,” he said.
Beyince revealed the news to Hampton Sheet publisher Joan Jedell at the Ziegfeld.
