Did Pharrell Name His Son ‘Rocket Man’ After an Elton John Song?

Written by on February 8, 2014



The producer and musician is father to five-year-old Rocket, with his wife Helen, and rumors suggested the youngster’s middle name was “Man” in reference to Elton John’s anthem Rocket Man.

Williams has now revealed the rumours about Rocket’s middle name are not true, but he did name his son after the veteran singer’s huge hit.

“I really respect Elton John’s music… Contrary to popular belief, Rocket’s middle name is not Man. But Elton John’s Rocket Man song was a part of it and also Stevie Wonder’s Rocket Love,” he told BBC’s Newsbeat.
