Beyonce Gives Birth & the World Debates Her Baby Name


beyonceWe had that whole false start on New Year's Eve, but according to numerous reports, the baby the whole world has been waiting for has finally arrived for real this time. That's right, Beyonce and Jay-Z have blessed the world with their progeny. See, it wasn't a fake baby bump, after all.

According to People, Beyonce gave birth to a baby girl yesterday in New York City. Mother and baby are said to be doing fine, and they even have a name.  A really cute name actually, but already there are critiques and conspiracy theories about it galore.

It's Blue Ivy Carter. Not too out there, but unique. I like it. Of course not everyone likes it, because when it comes to baby names people have no shortage of opinions.

There's speculation already as to what it means. Twitter is going wild with a theory that it means "Illuminati's Very Youngest," which is pretty hilarious. Some have gone even further to say that Blue = Born Living Under Evil.

Others have come up with even more ludicrous ideas such as one that Eulb Yvi (her name backwards) is Lucifer's daughter's name in Latin." Seriously, people?

And of course, the haters have already come out with another trending term on Twitter being #NamesBetterThanIvyBlue. Just what everyone parent wants to hear after working hard to pick the right name for their beloved child. Sheesh. Let's suffice it to say they haven't come up with anything better, but it's a humorous thread to read if you have time to waste. On that note, someone has already created a parody Twitter account for the poor baby. Dear lord.

Name aside, it's an exciting day that has been long awaited since the power couple announced the pregnancy back at the MTV Music Awards back in August. And I think it's safe to say that this time is the real deal based on the amount of congratulations coming the couple's way from a host of celebrities.

Gwyneth Paltrow tweeted this morning: "Welcome to the world Blue! We love you already."

Rhianna, who has already dubbed herself "Aunty Rih," tweeted last night: "Welcome to the world princess Carter!"

Now let the anticipation begin building until we see the pictures of little Blue Ivy.

What do you think of the name Blue Ivy Carter?

In fifty years people will look at names like Colton, Olivia, James, etc and say "ew, how old fashioned"! Every name comes and goes in popularity. Why do we get all in a tizzy if someone dares to name their child something "outside the norm"? It's none of our damn business.

I thought it was better as Ivy Blue. Either way, sounds like a stripper name to me. Both have kind of negative connotations...sadness, poison ivy...I couldn't imagine looking at a newborn full of life and happiness and thinking "Blue." Whatevs, it's not my baby.

I like Ivy but not Blue. But to each their own!

Blue is the color of the sky and sea. It is often associated with depth and stability. It symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven.

Blue is considered beneficial to the mind and body. It slows human metabolism and produces a calming effect. Blue is strongly associated with tranquility and calmness. In heraldry, blue is used to symbolize piety and sincerity.


Ivy leaves signify strong and lasting friendship. This association is derived from ivy'sability to stay attached to a rocky surface in even the most inhospitable conditions.


Originated in Europe, but also common in Asia. Ivy has been a symbol of eternal life in the pagan world and then came to represent new promise and eternal life in the Christian world. Ivy is more of an English Christmas green than an American one. It is a clinging plant, feminine in nature, not like the masculine holly leaf. Considered a symbol of woman, if put together with Holly (the symbol of man) at Christmas, it would bring peace in a home between a husband and wife, for the following year. Ivy stands for friendship and fidelity in marriage. It was the ancient symbol of Bacchus, the god of wine and revelry.

All in all, a good name w significance.

I like it- who knows? Maybe Blue & Ivy are family names- Blue can be a last name.
