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.

An Ode To The Awkward Girl Who Shys From Embracing Her Uniqueness
