Others Have Theorized That They Named Her Augustine

When the 25-year-old posted a throwback pic of Malik resting his head on her baby bump, and captioned it, “August, waiting for our girl,” fans quickly started analyzing it. Some people started to wonder if the couple named the baby August or Augustine, especially since Taylor Swift recently revealed in her Folklore: Long Pond Studio Sessions movie that the girl in her song “August” is named Augustine.

In the past, the singer has used her friend’s baby names for inspiration — for example, she used Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively‘s kids’ names in her song “Betty.”

“What if Augusta/Augustine/August is the name of Gigi and Zayn’s baby girl since Betty, James and Inez are Blake and Ryan’s?” one fan suggested on Twitter.
