Oh na na, what's her Bond name?
News broke yesterday, September 29, that the "Umbrella" singer was slated to star in the forthcoming 007 film Bond 24. Though it's unconfirmed, many of our readers were pretty open to the idea. Rihanna's tough, she's stunning, and gives zero you-know-whats. She'd make a fine addition to the already intimidatingly headstrong list of Bond Girls.
So, using 10 iconic Bond Girl names as inspiration, we thought it would be fun to imagine 10 possible names the screenwriters could give the potential Bond Gal RiRi. But, since the limit does not exist when it comes to cleverness, leave your ideas in the comments!

1. Mariah Juana
Marijuana. Get it?
2. Amber Ella
An homage to her 2007 hit.
3. Blaze
Some Bond names are short and to the point. Blaze is fierce. Blaze is feisty. You don't mess with Blaze.
4. Ella Turnt
What does Rihanna turn down for? Nothing.
5. Shé Nude
Before Rihanna's Instagram disappeared, she began captioning her selfies with the single phrase "She." It made no sense, but it was captivating.
6. Reb'L Fleur
It's French for "rebel flower." It's also a riff on one of her fragrances.
7. Rach Ette
In 2013, there was a rumor that Rih had partnered with Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, and Azealia Banks for what would've been the pop song of the decade, called "Ratchet." It never happened (or so we think), but maybe this name would be an incentive to bring it back.
8. Alana Phuckit
R.I.P. to the days of @badgalriri and her plethora of #phuckyo hashtags.
9. Cé-Cé L. Fay
S-s-selfie!
10. Vulvatron
Lest we ever forget this dance.
Ahead, 10 of our favorite OG Bond Girls (shouldn't we be calling them "Bond Women" now?) Rihanna would rub elbows with should she nab this iconic role.

Honey Ryder, Dr. No

There is nothing more iconic than Ursula Andress leaving the ocean, shells in hand, with a knife attached to her hip. She was the first, after all.

Grace Jones. That's all.

Pussy Galore, Goldfinger

Not only was Galore stunning, she was one of the first Bond Girls who could hold her own next to Bond. Plus, she was a pilot.

Melina Havelock, For Your Eyes Only

Hevelock was so determined to avenge the death of her parents that she hardly cracked a smile. And, like Galore, she could give Bond a taste of his own medicine.

Kissy Suzuki, You Only Live Twice

Suzuki was the top Tiger agent. What other Bond Girl can say that?

Sure, she wasn't the best Bond Girl, but her name...

Tiffany Case, Diamonds Are Forever

Case knew what she wanted and let nothing stop her. Diamonds were her best friend, power was her second, and love, well, love was a tool.

Vesper Lynd, Casino Royale

Eva Green's character trait's read like a Bond Girl 101: intelligent, gorgeous, and unafraid to kick ass when she needs to.

Octopussy, Octopussy

What other Bond Girl got a movie named after her? Oh right, none of them except Octopussy.

Xenia Onatopp, GoldenEye

With a name like that, you just know this is a woman who understands the power of sex and isn't afraid to use it as a weapon.
