Blue Ivy Carter’s name has both mesmerized and confounded fans since her birth at the top of the year, with many wondering if she was named after her father, Jay-Z’s, favorite color (Blue) or after her mother, Beyoncé’s, favorite number and album title (Ivy=IV=4). But with the launch of Beyoncé’s new Tumblr page, the superstar mom has now given fans a hint about the origin’s of Blue Ivy’s name.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that Beyoncé launched a personal Tumblr blog on April 5, full of intimate photos and viral clips featuring her, her hubby, her sister, Solange, and Solange’s son, Daniel Julez.
But in one particular clip, Beyoncé can be seen standing beneath a Blue Ivy tree while on vacation with Jay in Hvar, Croatia. And it’s in that clip that Bey hints at the origin of Blue Ivy’s name.
“We woke up this morning and took a nice little walk and passed by this beautiful blue tree. I think it’s Blue Ivy, which will be quite appropriate,” says Mama Bey.
And we’d have to agree that the name is nothing short of marvelous for the world’s most famous baby. But she’s not the only celebrity kid with a cool name. Check out a list other cool-named kids below. –nicholas robinson
