The Grammy Award-winning singer, whose full name is Usher Raymond, told DeGeneres that if his new wife does have a baby boy, he wants to pass along his now famous moniker, People magazine reported Friday.
"If it's a boy, I'm going to name him Usher," he said. "I've been playing with a few names. I'm the fourth. Usher Raymond IV. I just want to pass the name on."
The "Caught Up" singer married his girlfriend, Tameka Foster, Aug. 3 and now the couple is expecting their first child together.
While Usher may be longing for a male heir to his name, DeGeneres joked on her Burbank set while filming next Tuesday's show that his public admission may have the opposite effect.
"Now, you're going to have a girl, and she's going to see this tape and say, 'Daddy, why don't you love me?' DeGeneres joked.
