Story Behind Beyonce's Baby Name Will Move You (VIDEO)

Awww! 19

pregnant beyonceWhat you're about to watch is amazing for so many reasons. One, it's an adorable home video of a pregnant Beyonce on vacation. Two, it shows pregnant Beyonce's pregnant belly, so all the muckrakers can pipe down. And three, it's a video of Beyonce literally stumbling upon a gorgeous, towering Blue Ivy tree in a forest in Croatia. Seriously. You can't make this stuff up. This is truly the kind of thing that only happens to rich people. The farthest I've traveled during my pregnancy has been Queens. But enough about me. Let's watch the angelic-looking Beyonce get acquainted with the tree that may or may not have inspired her daughter's name.

With her white outfit, bare feet, wild hair, and cuddling up to a tree that looks like it's CGI, Beyonce literally looks like a faerie in this video. Stunning. I'm seriously not going to look in the mirror the rest of the day. It just doesn't seem right. 

Now, it doesn't sound like this horticultural encounter was necessarily the inspiration for her daughter's name, as she says, "I think it's Blue Ivy, which would be quite appropriate," but this little snippet does serve as a reminder that baby name inspiration can come from anywhere. Odds are, most of us aren't going to be frolicking in an enchanted forest like Bey, but we should definitely look beyond the Internet, baby books, and Us Weekly when trying to think of a name. Take a walk around your block, keep your eyes peeled in the supermarket, pay attention to the credits at the end of a movie -- who knows what you'll find!

How did you come up with your baby name?

I still think she's pushing out her gut and totally faked the pregnancy. Just sayin.

*I kept saying the fake pregnancy rumors were crazy

Stacey. Stacey.

Its still a terrible name, and the fact she is all about wearing the color "blue" now is even lamer. They shoulda named her green dough since they're both rolling in it.

Do why did her and jay-z state that the babys name was inspired by jay-z blue print album and iv because of thier date.

Not sure if when they meet or when they got married.

Hot 97 has stayed this info.

Haha! Barefoot and pregnant! She looks like an idiot. Blue Ivy is a terrible name for a person, fine for a tree. It's equivalent to naming your kid Fluffy Cloud. Stop with the weird names, it reflects poorly on you and your poor little Roze Peak will never get a decent job.
