    Hm, not really liking the name but if it’s what they like…i respect that. :D

    Congrats!

  • Tom

    If my parents named that I would be so pissed at them .

  • why?

    They are pushing this arabic thing too far. So phony.

  • J

    Honestly, she could do a lot better but to call him a “Porch monkey” is uncalled for.

  • Lilakoi Moon

    Excuse me but…. what? She SERIOUSLY named her son “Egypt”? I don’t even mind the Daoud as a middle name since it may have some kind of significance in another language. But Egypt? It can only remind me of the country. I do admire that country btw but I would never, ever like it if my parents called me that. It’s not even funny. WTF! I’m shocked. Does Egypt actually mean something in some language, anyone? I can’t believe it from her…. I thought I had seen the worst when it comes to weird ass celebrity names “Bronx Mowgly”, “Pilot Inspektor”, “Apple” etc but wow, Alicia just took it to a whole new LEVEL. Now, fruits are over, let’s give our babies countries names =) Okay, okay I’m juuuuust kiddin’ there. Oh well, she is the momma, he’s the daddy, they’re the parents, it’s their baby, they can name it as they wish. None of my business….. but DAMN. :p

  • Ashley

    Congrats…..Cant wait to see pictures yaya

  • hmm.

    congrats…..

  • An Intelligent Mind

    Why can’t you people be happy for them? Are your lives so pathetic that you have to release your venom onto people you don’t know? Whatever happened with Alicia regarding her husband is in the past and HER BUSINESS!! Well anyways, congrats to Alicia on her new bundle of joy!!!! Enjoy him, as they grow very quickly!!

  • caro

    idiot name but congrats!

  • hopeso

    CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!

  • Courtney

    Egypt isn’t a strange name at all get over it. don’t aim derrogatory comments at a child. it may not be your naming style but it was the parents choice so lay off. that’s like saying the mothers last name shouldn’t be used as a middle name for one of her children if she so choses like Patricia Neal did with her youngest daughter or Genna Rowlands did with her youngest daughter. granted both of those actresses are oscar nominated/winning which is different than being a grammy award winning singer like Alicia is.

    Congrats to Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz on their new born child

  • Sean

    Of course that pretentious homewrecker would name her kid Egypt. Haha

  • the truth

    No congrats here he already has kids by other women Its not like that’s his first child.Can’t believe Alicia keys got herself in that mess. use to like her but she nothing now. Its not like people wants to hear about it. And jared this child is not nothing to her husband. I thought it suppose to be born in nov?

  • so sad

    i just dont understand why NO ONE in her family or close friend circle encouraged her to WAIT…at least a year after his divorce..even if they werent “together” then a year after people would at least not assume he was trying to get over on her..its so clear thats what happened here

  • Iffy Miffy

    They named him Egypt? Ay, here come the jokes once he grows a bit, some parents are morons! Best wishes to the little one, lots of health and joy!

  • Go Ask Alice

    Lovelove Alicia Keys music.

    Too bad she is such a dumb bunny.
    What a stupid name to call your child!
    She tries so hard to show and proove her blackness.

    Swiss Beatz,ummm, what he has 4 kids now by 3 different Baby Mama’s.
    Ewwwww!!

  • LaTanya

    Congrats to the couple and their new little bundle. It’s their kid they can name him what they want. I look to entertainers for their music not their morals!

  • Sean

    So in 15 years he’ll be bullied for having that name then off himself.

  • sandie

    What an ugly name, Egypt? The name is fine for the country but not for a child, come on, poor kid!

  • anon

    The only other Egypts I know of are women. Women are usually named after countries as nations are often referred to as “she”.

    India, Kenya, America, Britttany/Britannia, France, Canada, Persia, Paris,
    Egypt are all names of women

  • Yasmin

    Egypt means “Temple for Ka of Ptah” which was an Egyptian god…so please no one just assume things from their heads and say “egypt” means nothing cuz country with that great civilization won’t have any meaningless name..so please have some respect for my country and after all he’s their own child and they could name him whatever they want.

  • nincompoop

    poor kid has morons for parents.

    what a life he’s gonna have with that name!

  • S*

    daoud = david in arabic

    is swizz beats muslim?? wassup with the arabic names?

  • swiss cheese

    Is Swizz Beatz…..black or does he have some eqyptian roots??

    does not look egyptian

  • inall

    @swiss cheese: A wannabe is all.

  • MsIrene

    While I don’t condone anyone who comes between a married couple, I know this baby will be loved as he has a wonderful mother, grandmother, and a ton of relatives. Obviously, Swizz Beatz loved Alicia enough to marry her, and is still with her, so that’s good enough for me! Whether he stays with Alicia or not, at least he married her! If they don’t make it, they won’t be the first couple to break up! For most of you that are saying she is a homewrecker, just remember that it takes two people to tango and he obviously was having marital problems, like the majority of folk do. If a man loves his wife the right way, he won’t leave her for another. ……Don’t blame Alicia because we do not know the whole story, or what was going on with Swizz’s previous marriage……

    As for the name “Egypt”, it’s beautiful!!

  • julie

    what a mess that she deserves, his fourth child by as many women, count them (4 kids, 4 baby mamas) Alicia is ghetto, i don’t care who you are, that is so low class.

  • julie

    @MsIrene: wow! you are right, he did marry her, that must mean he loves her and she’s special, NOT, what did she win? a man who cheats, have unprotected sex with any body, and he’s been married before but cheated, but if your theory helps her and you sleep better at night, so be it, i am 50, i have seem a lot, believe me Alicia is not any more special than any body else he’s been with, it’s just gonna be harder for her to get out of. no ones jealous, we feel sorry for kid number 4.

  • http://....... hema

    If they’re going for an all Arabic name than the child should have been named Masri Daoud Dean because Egypt in Arabic is Masr; but the whole Ara-gish mash sound wack, by the way even the name Dean is Arabic because it mean faith

    on another note…….to the poster who asks ” Is Swizz Beatz…..black or does he have some eqyptian roots?? does not look egyptian”

    The level of ignorance is of the chart!!!! Yes you can be black egyptian, there’s a tribe called the nuba who stretch from south Egypt to north Sudan…I should know I’m one

  • http://jorevcosmetics.com Ms Bar Jolie Gaga

    I don’t understand how racist comments above get through and mine giving out kudos to Alicia for choosing a name that is imaginative is being moderated. So the racist posts are ok but not mine? Go figure.

  • Carla

    Sweet. Egypt.

  • http://jorevcosmetics.com Ms Bar Jolie Gaga

    I love the name. Many children are named after countries, cities etc. Dakota, Kingston (Gwen Stefani’s son), India, Asia, so why not Egypt? Besides some of the names we give to children today would sound odd depending on the culture or depending on the time period. Renaissance England would have a hard time with “Jennifer” or “Tiffany”. lol. Also, there are many men who have children with different women – Mick Jagger has 7 by 4 different women – so why is Swizz being singled out? Egypt is a beautiful name.

  • http://jorevcosmetics.com Ms Bar Jolie Gaga

    #28: google is your best friend so is reading. Swizz is Black and Puerto Rican it is reported and he is of Muslim religion thus the Muslim names of his other children as well. He is not a wannabe, it’s his religion.

  • Nokia

    @Ms Bar Jolie Gaga:
    I just assumed that he was of arab descent,but it totally makes sense either way if he is a Muslim,
    I wonder if Key’s is a convert.

  • angie

    totally agree with # 35 what’s your problem?

    Egypt it’s a name of country ok but Paris Hilton has the name of capital and no one is shocked! Not to mention the Dakotas, France (there are French woman who called France), India, Austin, Dallas ect

    There are more Muslims good names than Daoud but that is their choice

    Too many racist and ignorant

  • http://jorevcosmetics.com Ms Bar Jolie Gaga

    Not sure if he is a convert. I wonder if Puerto Rico has a Muslim population of note. I don’t know. Course if he grew up in NYC like Alicia did then I can see how he would have been influenced by the religion. Also, he could be Muslim from his African-American parent as there is a significant number of black Muslims. Dunno. Baby Egypt should be quite exotic!

  • My name is Egypt

    Egypt is an african nation so we welcome anyone who sees this name as fit. The couple featured here draws so much attention that you must comment on their lifestyle; especially the ignorant haters. You all will realize that in the United States you will always from introduction of outsiders to what was the ‘New World’ already populated by ancestors of asians whom later were labeled as “native americans”. None of us can claim this land as ours – that’s what the majority would like to hold onto because they do not want this “New World” in which is the mixing of all the worlds cultures in this land. Everyone who lives in the ‘United States’ formerly the New World has come from another land. Asians first, africans and europeans. Stop being ignorant – the migration of all the worlds people will be this land – we are the epicenter of world. So if you feel that asians, africans, latin and europeans should only name their children after what your environment is shaped – they go ahead and rant, act snarky, be a sniveling ethnic hater, there is no such thing as race (human race only), you hate the culture and the ethnic mixing so close to your closed in environment. Live your life using your energy to hate; inspiring more hate and you will have lived little missed out on many opportunities to love another human.

    Some of you are such haters! It must be because you don’t have anyone to have your baby or worse than that, you can’t have any. What they eat don’t make you shit. Get a life and stop worrying about what other people are doing in there life. So busy with my own life.

  • *she rocks*

    Congrats to Swizz Beats and his 4th baby momma… hope the baby is happy and healthy!

  • Guopt

    @Lilakoi Moon:

    Actually Egypt is still a country and cultural reference but Daud/Dawood is a very famous mafia guy in Dubai who is responsible for riots,arson,violence and bloodshed across Indian continent hiding in dubai/pakistan to escape the interpol as Dubai gives immunity to muslim terrorists.

  • ShakingMyHead

    Someone named Israel is going to beat that kids ass one day but Egypt’s friends Jordan and Syria will probably jump in

  • Too funny

    lol –> Muslims hahaha

  • Annie

    I actually just love the name Egypt – although I’m more used to it being used for a girl.

  • I am not a HUMAN

    The person(s) featured here draws so much attention that you must comment on their lifestyle; especially the ignorant haters. Go ahead and rant your ignorant one liners, be a sniveling ethnic hater, make snarky comments to build up your self esteem. Egypt is an african nation so we welcome anyone who sees this name as fit. You all realize that in the United States (formerly the ‘New World’) you will always be among thousands of different people from all over the world. The introduction of outsiders to what was the ‘New World’, which was already populated by ancestors of asians, europeans claimed this land as their own. The asians (whom later were labeled as “native americans” by the new settlers were supressed of course and you can see how we came to be so diverse. None of us can claim this land as ours – that’s what the majority would like to hold onto because they do not want this “New World” in which is the mixing of all the worlds cultures in this land. Everyone who lives in the ‘United States’ formerly the New World has come from another land. Asians first, africans and europeans. Stop being ignorant – the migration of all the worlds is here in the United States – the EPICENTER of world. So if you feel that asians, africans, latin and europeans should only name their children after the majority – then you are very limited in your own ‘world’. You are a product of your environment!!! If you hate the culture and the ethnic mixing continue to be closed in YOUR environment; your closed MIND. Live your life using your energy to hate; we will your your own energy against you. Hate will consume you and you will have lived a life in your own bubble – avoiding diverse cultures fearing colorful ethnicities (former haters and xenophobic’s you can attest to this lifestyle) but most important of all you will miss many opportunities to love another human aka ‘earthling’. There is no such thing as race (human race only) read and find the facts of human evolution starting of all places AFRICA.
