Meaning Of Beyonce's Baby Name

Meaning Of Beyonce's Baby Name

Fans speculate meaning behind Beyonce name 'Blue Ivy'

From the moment she announced her pregnancy last August to the often-reported though not yet confirmed by her camp delivery on Saturday, Beyonce and Jay-Z's baby has been winning the Internet.

And on Sunday, the day following Beyonce's reported delivery of a baby girl named Blue Ivy Carter in New York, the rumored name sparked plenty of online conversation as fans tried to dissect the meaning.

(Some reports suggested that the name was "Ivy Blue," but a tweet from Beyonce's pal Gwyneth Paltrow appeared to clear up the confusion: "It's Blue Ivy Carter!" the actress wrote to a curious Twitter follower.)

While Beyonce and Jay-Z have stayed mum about whether or not there is a baby let alone baby names, fans bandied about a popular theory that "Ivy" is indicative of the Roman numeral four - as in, "IV-y."

(Beyonce has said that "four" is an important number in her life; it pops up as the title of her latest album, and is in her birth date and the date of her wedding.)

As for "Blue," Us Weekly points out that Jay-Z has rapped about the shade being a favorite color, and fans have raised the correlation between "Blue" and Jay-Z's "Blueprint" albums.

Still others saw a more nefarious connotation, tweeting the belief that "Ivy" stands for "Illuminati's Very Youngest," which is based in the gossip that Jay-Z is involved in the occult.

(It was a Sunday, guys - apparently people had time on their hands.)

Regardless, both Beyonce and Jay-Z have maintained radio silence . However, their celebrity friends haven't been as quiet.

Rihanna tweeted Sunday, "Welcome to the world princess Carter! Love Aunty Rih." P. Diddy chimed in, "Congrats to jay and B! God Bless :) ! And many more!"

Gwyneth Paltrow added, "Welcome to the world Blue! We love you already," while Beyonce's sister Solange simply tweeted, "The most beautiful girl in the world."
