By now you're aware of Beyoncé's infamous Lemonade lyric, which suggests her cheating husband call "Becky with the good hair." And by now you're also aware that fans have sadly pegged Becky as designer Rachel Roy. Perhaps you even know that Rita Ora has tried to be Becky. And you definitely know that finding Becky isn't the point of Bey's sixth album.

But still, even though Becky is merely a code name for a bland white girl and we're getting it all wrong, it's fun to meme the lyric. That's what the Internet is for, right?

Anyway, I think I've found the actual Becky, so we can close this case once and for all. Take a look at the suspects I've rounded up:

Like, it could be the original Becky, from Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Baby Got Back"

Or Aunt Becky from Full House

One might even suggest that it's Becky G

But I know other people have their money on this Becky:

Becky Black would be a good guess, but you'd be wrong.

I know you might be surprised, but evidence points to Becky from Roseanne. Let that soak in.

Mystery solved!
