Beyonce Names Daughter Blue Ivy: What Does It Mean? (PHOTOS)


Beyonce and Jay-Z welcomed a baby girl in New York on January 7. Not one to stick to convention, the chart-topping couple opted to grace their daughter with a peculiar name. Although initial reports claimed that Bey's baby was named "Ivy Blue," the duo's good friend Gwyneth Paltrow confirmed on her Twitter that the little bundle of joy is in fact named Blue Ivy. 

Since fans were scratching their heads at this uncommon name, Celebuzz has decided to break it down to gain a little insight.

Diehard Beyonce and Jay-Z fans speculated that Blue Ivy's unusual name refers to both artists' past musical endeavors. Many claimed that Blue's first name is a reference to Jay-Z's 2001 album The Blueprint. As for Ivy? Some fans said it stood for IV -- the Roman numeral for 4, which coincidentally is the name of Beyonce's 2011 album.

However, it seems the Twittersphere has already taken a liking to little Blue Ivy. Aside from clearing up the name mix up, Paltrow also tweeted her congratulations to the happy couple, saying:
Welcome to the world Blue! We love you already.
Jay's protege Rihanna also added:
Welcome to the world princess Carter! Love Aunty Rih

Of course, Bey and Jay aren't the only celebrity parents who are fond of crazy names. From Natalie Portman's son Aleph to Gwen Stefani's Zuma, Hollywood has taken an inkling to uncommon names. Check out the gallery above for more bizarre baby names!

    Wow do you realize how ignorant (and offensive) it is to refer to the Hebrew name Aleph as a "crazy name". A name being in another language does not make it crazy. Educate yourself Gabrielle Chung.

    And newly Harper, which reminds me of a British old slave name. Romeo is the only normal name there. Cruz is like a last name and it's more Spanish. Brooklyn is a girl's name...
