In case you haven’t noticed, celebrities tend to give their children some really interesting names, and the current champ is the newborn son of Rick Ross and his girlfriend Briana Camille: Billion.

Announcing the birth of his son, he tweeted:

And then he tweeted again:

Here’s my theory about the name: Rick Ross’ actual name is William Leonard Roberts II, and he already has a son named William III. So, by naming his second son Billion, he’s kinda sorta rhyming the names, while adding an, um, affluent touch.

Plus, the Miami rapper just really, really likes the word “billion”: two of his songs are “Billionaire” and “Hood Billionaire”, after all.
