Outside of news about his career, the big question about Zayn Malik is his future baby with Perrie Edwards — and whether fans will help them name it.
As it appears, Zayn Malik fans might be excited about his relationship with Perrie Edwards — but they are not doing much to help them to name their future baby.
According to UnReality TV, around June 25, Perrie Edwards told Fabulous Magazine that she was looking forward to having a baby with Zayn Malik — but not for at least three years.
Despite this news, it does not seem to resonate with Zayn Malik fans to suggest a baby name. In addition to social media comments and posts from Zayn Malik fans, scouring fan fiction and forums has also produced few results for baby name suggestions.
Is there a reason that fans are not that excited about Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards having a baby?
Interestingly, fans are notorious for trying to name a celebrity baby without being asked. According to the Brandon Sun, Olympic Gold Medalist Meghan Mikkelson directly asked for baby name suggestions on Twitter on June 28.
However, fans of Beyonce and Kim Kardashian need no invitation. On June 1, Hollywood Life pointed out that within hours of Kim announcing she was pregnant, Twitter lit up with suggested baby names from fans.
Unfortunately, fans of Zayn Malik have been put off by Perrie Edwards in the past — and some Zayn fans could be nursing old wounds. For example, when Zayn Malik quit One Direction, fans were quick to point out that Perrie Edwards was the culprit — and not his exhaustion from touring.
Although some fans do not like Perrie Edwards, others have been staying positive about her relationship with Zayn Malik — and have imagined the two having a baby long before she came up with the idea.
As a matter of fact, some Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards fans were having “Zerrie” baby-naming premonitions as far back as January 30, 2014. At that time, @RickyPinela tweeted, “Last night I had a dream that I was helping Zerrie name their baby…”
Some fans have even imagined what a baby between Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards would look like. One fan, @Narry_Stare_Woa, stated on Twitter on June 29, “… imagine if Zerrie’s baby had Perrie’s blue eyes, Zayn’s hair, and could sing like both of them.”
Adding to that, there was also a video published on December 8, 2014 on YouTube that shows what the Sims 4 think Perrie Edwards and Zayn Malik’s baby would look like via computer animation.
Although fans are not suggesting names for Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards’ future baby — the media has noticed that Zayn is influencing baby names, according to MTV.
Backing that up, Twitter user @RusselTubo tweeted to Zayn Malik on September 25, 2012, “My sister named her daughter Zayn Eirish. First name was inspired by Zayn Malik though the baby is a girl.”
In another instance of Zayn Malik influencing baby names, @ElleEspinosa says on May 8, 2012, “Baby Zayn named after you Zayn Malik. This is the baby I told you about. His name is Corben Zayn.”
As far as the handful of fans trying to help Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards name their baby, some of the suggestions are very old. For instance, on August 21, 2013, @Ideleanorries states, “@ZaynMalik @LittleMixOffic, After you get engaged, you will get married, and the baby name will be an Arabic name. Deal?”
Some recent baby name suggestions for Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards came after the Paris Fashion Show in late June. A couple of fans tweeted they want Zayn Malik to name his new baby after particular fans.
Other fans are suggesting celebrity names, such as calling the Zerrie baby “Kanye” — and they are not the only ones with this idea.
Clevver News published a video about Kanye West and Zayn Malik sitting next to each other during Paris Fashion Week on June 25. In the caption to the video, they give their opinion about the reason Kanye West is smiling while Zayn Malik is talking to him with the following statement.
“I hope that Zayn was congratulating Kanye on his baby number two news and talking baby names. Probably not, but one can dream right?”
In the comments for the Clevver News post about Zayn Malik, one YouTube user says, “they should name him South West.”
Obviously, Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards might not be getting a lot of baby name suggestions from fans — but they have not announced she is pregnant, yet.
If Zayn Malik and Perrie Edwards do not have any suggestions from fans and are still trying to figure out a baby name, they have one last viable alternative. In particular, they can use a celebrity baby name-picking method used by one of Zayn’s fans.
Twitter user @AprilBrisk writes on June 2, 2014, “Running round Blackpool with a pregnant Jocelyn Kelly with Lily and Martha searching for Zayn Malik. If we catch him, [Jocelyn will name the baby after Zayn].”
