MIA named her baby “Ikhyd” which is obviously a lot better and way cooler than “Ickitt”:

M.I.A. didn’t name her baby Ickitt, thank you very much.

She named him Ikhyd.

The baby’s full mouthful of a moniker, Ikhyd Edgar Arular Bronfman, was revealed on his birth certificate obtained by TMZ.

The tiny tot was was born to the 33-year-old rapper and her fiance, The Exit guitarist Benjamin Brewer, on Feb. 11 – mere days after his mom’s attention-grabbing Grammy performance on her due date.

The rapper chided “the Hollywood press” on MySpace earlier this month for incorrectly reporting on her infant son’s name.

“My baby is not called Ickitt, Pickit or Lickit thank you very much,” she wrote.

“I will be back with something newsworth soon. ‘Til then go pick on Apple, Satchel and Moon Unit.”

We’re mad she was trying to play the name Ickitt like that sh*t ain’t hella close to Ikhyd.  Fa real.

    I think its cool that she gave her baby a SriLankan name … its something more original that boring western names like Mark, James, Paul, Ann, Lisa etc.

  • BSStinks

    It seems to be the same name; but the spelling, of course, is different.

    But, whatever, as someone else stated, it’s not my baby.

    Nonetheless, congratz to MIA on her new bundle of joy.

    I’m sensing tension in your life. Something tells me there are real issues going on in your life and you really aren’t all that concerned about names of people who have nothing to do with you. Don’t avoid that conflict. You have to deal. It will only fester. Good luck, my friend.

    Well, I’m just glad she didn’t go all crazy and name the baby something stupid.
