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."

    Obviously none are even remotely informed on the occult, magick, or other things on this site. I've just compiled a piece over this subject. More than people would belive, but let me guarantee, that "blue ivy" is not some silly "eulb yvi in Latin" crap. That is far to easily lfound" and thus even easier to debunk and "assure people there is nothing to it. (although backwards speaking and writing is part or witchcraft). But, blue ivy does have EXACT ties to magick/wicca/celtic rites.

    Some are informed, the rest are naive.

    Blue magick is also a real magick ritual to conjure wealth by worshipping it. Hmm...Jay-z has a song called "Blue Magic" and a section of his lyrics do reference the actual practice of the ritual as well as referencing white/black magick (right/southpaw = right-hand path, white/left-hand path – black).

    Never amazes me to see how uninformed people are and what they will believe if a "majority" or some website says it to be true. This is just the tip of the tip of the tip of the iceberg.

    Two words: self absorbed.
    "Hey, why give the baby a normal name when we can just name it after my record and your favorite number?!!!!"
    I wouldn't think the name was nearly as stupid if I didn't hear the whacked-out reasons behind it.

    The real meaning of BLUE IVY...Blue is expressed when we are sad. Beyonce was sad that she was not carrying the baby. IVY is misspelled for ENVY. Because she envied the surrogated woman that brought the baby into this world. She should name the child right BLUE ENVY.

    Funny how a simple name can garner such racial discourse. The same people who jump to say race is no longer an issue are often the first people who make such disparaging remarks. Did Gwyneth get called trailer trash for naming her daughter Apple? This name is not "ghetto" or "ethnically identifiable" by a long shot. Give me a break people. Names are supposed to be meaningful and babies are blessings. The name means something to the parents and is unique without being obnoxious. Not everyone wants to name their child Anne or Mary.

    Congrats to the Carter family! 🙂

    • Disgusted W/ Hate!

      I't so sad that people use something like a baby name as their opportunity to vent the hate that's been brewing in their hearts all along. So what if you think that black people give their kids weird names, white people give their kids last names as first names like Parker, Hunter, McKenzie,and name them after cities and states like Dallas, Montana,Dakota etc. Who cares??? Is that any reason to cause a race battle on this blog? Love yourselves, and the rest is easy! This country is in trouble, lets come together and enjoy the time we have here on earth as free, citizens of what may not be the World's Super Power for much longer! BRIC nations are laughing at us, as we continue to tear each other down while they continue to rise above us! When does it end? Especially you DERP!!!!

      "Especially you DERP!!!!"

      Hey, thanks for the shout out!!!!

      You are right dum bass white people who give thier kids stupid names need to be called on it too.

      However, names Parker, Hunter, Dallas, and Dakota are actual names, and have been for decades. They are kind of stupid, but they real words.

      Jacquizz is not a real name or a real word. It is just a bunch of stupid afro centric crap tossed together. I have no problem with black people wanting to give their children names based on their african heritage. Give your kid A REAL AFRICAN NAME!!!!

      Tell me, how many kids do you think are named Jacquizz, La'Quisha or Ty'Reque. in Zimbabwe?

      Look at our President. he has a decent honorable AFRICAN name.

      Bill Cosby is right.

    I have no jealousy or animosity toward you but you claim to be private people,a song come on you couldn't wait to exploit that child.Like many have said babies are born everyday no one cares,why don't you take the proceeds of that song and renovate some houses of some poor working people.After that for the last time retire for good be in a minority of young parents who can really be there for their kids 24/7 without nanny,granny or aunty.That sounds so awesome to me,but I know you entertainers and your 'Big Egos'.

    So it's a little ridiculous but parents have the right to name their kid anyway they want, even if it sounds so idiotic to others.
    I've read some dumb names that are far worse from celebrities for their kids like Pilot Inspektor, Apple, Moon Unit Zappa, Lavoris, Moxie Crimefighter, Audio Science, Diva Muffin, Ocean... and so on.
    It's too bad the child can't do anything about the teasing and jokes when they're growing up but the thing is, the kid will be able to change the name when they turn 18, at least they can be able to do that.

    Well I’m a hip-hop Daddy, jus call me Jay-Z
    Got my woman an my baby, an that’s makes three
    Baby “Blue” is such a treasure, she sure oughtta be,
    Cuz this room and all the service cost me 1.3

    uh-huh, yeah,
    (Don’t tell nobody)
    It’s just a number, right?
    I got some more, I think

    Well my posse’s in the hallway makin’ sure we ain’t disturbed
    But I hear some angry papa yellin’, damn he sounds perturbed.
    He can’t get to his family cuz’ my man is sayin’ no,
    too bad, cuz Me and Momma “B” are payin’ for this show.

    It’s only 1.3
    That’s what I tell myself
    Small price to pay, right?
    Damn the bytch is picky
    Hope one kid is enough

    Well, it may seem a like a lot for “B” just to relax
    But 1.3 ain’t nothin, I’m givin’ you the facts
    Maybe it’s enough for them to fix the baby wing,
    But it still was just a fraction of her f**in’ wedding ring!

    What have I done? Huh?
    I must be crazy
    What lawsuit?

    She was named after a cheap lighter: BIC. Either that or the daughter of the fictional character Scarlett O'Hara: Bonnie Blue Butler.

    Actually, the name could have been much, much worse - so I think the kid lucked out. And, since she has more money than God already at birth ... she doesn't really need much luck anyway.

    This is a typical name for a black baby. I thought the rules for naming black baby's required the parents to pull a handful of lettered tiles from a scrabble bag. If the pull the blank tiles, that's where thing get really interesting.

    Haven't you ever wondered how they get names like Jamal, Shaniqua, Jalen or Aaliyah?

    January 10, 2012 at 8:10 am | Report abuse |
    • derp

      Actually, Jamal, Jalen, and Aaliya are traditional names. Where they really screw up is when the take a bunch of names and jam them together and then add a Ta, Da, or La.


      For example, why can't you just name you kid Sean, Marcus or Mario? Why do you have to add stupid prefixes to "africanize" names that aren't even African?

      Look, Ta'Sean, Da'Mario and La'Marcus are NOT african names. They are stupid made up non ethnic names. If you want to name you kid something "afro centric" get a book of Nigerian baby names and name your kid something like Dekembe. Taking a traditionally cucasian baby name name and adding Duh to it, does make an "African" name. It just makes you and your kid look stupid.

Apparently most of you have no jobs, or no life because you are wasting valuable air on nonsense! You believe anything posted on web, just mindless wastes of matter! Beyonce had her baby natural not by c section, and they did not rent the 4th floor out! Everyone does not bear scars from a c section and beyonce probably will be one of the fortunate ones who doesn't scar! Get a clue and a hobby! Go read a book minus the pictures! They are human let them enjoy the beautiful gift of life they both produced. They have a right to name their child whatever they want. This baby girl will have and see more than most of you see in ten years time in ten min. Quit being evil! Your names should be green because you're jealous!

Coming from New Orleans, I have to admit that it is going to make a great drag queen stage name for someone soon. I can already think of some great Mardi Gras costume ideas.

    They should apologize to all the parents they inconvenienced in the NICU. Keeping parents away from their new born babies just because OMG an normal person may see our child! Get real you selfish pieces of trash. Your chity body guards bullied parents away from being able to see their babies. You chitty money paid to inconvenience others during what was supposed to be a happy time. The hospital pulled a tasteless and insensitive stunt as well.

    Aaaaah, I'm really so happy for Beyonce and JayZ and their new bundle of Joy. I'm sure baby Blue Ivy already has all her uncles and aunts lining up to spoil her rotten. i.e,,Oprah, Lady Gaga, Will/Jada, Gweneth, Rihanna, Russell, Kanye and many more!! What a truly luck little girl.

    AND secondly those of you who do nothing but spew hate and negativity about the NAME given to their child are just being silly. FIRST of all, the name holds special meaning to the PARENTS as it should be. Its NOT our child, so WHY DOES IT MATTER TO ANY OF YOU what Bee and Jay named their baby? Last time I checked NONE OF YOU have any say in the matter. AND in regards to how much they spent on securing the safety of their baby and their family privacy...WHAT DOES IT MATTER TO ANY ONE ELSE? Last time I checked it wasn't YOUR MONEY to be mouthing off about. AND ALL hospitals NEED the money desperately. AND the fact that Jay and Bee are NOT the first couple who have shelled out millions to hospitals to protect their privacy and they certainly won't be the LAST..... so this notion that they are this or that is just plain ignorant coming from "haters" who have nothing better to do than spew hate based on envy and jealousy. You ALL wished you had Bee and Jay's life. Don't FRONT.... Don't FAKE the funk. All of you hating on them are just jealous its NOT YOUR LIFE!!!

    The very same folks who DON'T KNOW WHAT THE HELL THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT and WHO HAVE NO VESTED INTERESTS when it comes to the decisions pertaining to Bee and Jay's marriage, baby and celebrity status. It's THEIR LIFE and THEIR baby and if they have the money to SPEND, SPEND, SPEND.... What business is it of YOURS people!!! Get a grip.... don't hate the players, hate the game!!! What a bunch of FAKE and JEALOUS haters in this blog, doing nothing but talking trash.... but seriously we ALL know better don't we?

    The name comes from Jay-Z's great aunt, who is younger than he is, who liked the songs Blue Velvet and Poison Ivy. They were going to name the chile "Poyson Belvitt" and spell it that way.

    Here is the straight truth answer to the name. They are morons that think it's funny to give the kid a strange name. They did it to get attention. There should be a law against things like this. That poor kid has to grow up with that name until she is old enough to tell her "parents" that they are retards, and change he name. But at least she has some hope of being able to use the "Ivy" part as her name and dropping the "Blue". People. Think about this child growing up and having to explain that stupid, oddly spelled name you gave them. EVERY time they have to give their name over the phone, they will have to stop and spell it out, explain it, and 90% of the time, people will still get it wrong.

    Giving children names like this is a form of child abuse.

    According to the radio this morning. Blue comes from Jay Z's new album Blueprint. (Stupid right?) Ivy is in relation to the roman numeral number 4 which is IV. Apparently, they both love the number 4 since both of their birthday's are on the 4th. That is where Blue Ivy came from. Carter is Jay Z's real last name.

    Have you people ever heard of Blue Cantrell the Soul singer? The name isn't that crazy say like naming your kid Apple. Just a thought.

      Whats strange is...Jay Z dated a singer named Blue Cantrall (sp?). He also dated the rapper Foxy Brown, whose real name is Ingrid, which is the name Bey used to check her in....

      ever heard of the term, "stage name"? that's not her real name. Blu Cantrell (born Tiffany Cobb on March 16, 1976) is an American R&B and soul singer-songwriter. (source: wikipedia.org)

      or they could have named it Jimmie Lou, Sally Sue or some other backwoodish, redneck name...

      Jiimmy, Lou, Sally and Sue are all actually names. Unlike the strewn together, preclude your kid from ever getting a job, afro centric, unpronounceable garbage that black people invent tom punish their children with.

      Nice try though.

      Derp, do not worry about it. Just tie your trailer down, so next strong breeze, you do not get blown away with the rest of the trash.

      Go ahead and make trailer park jokes. It won't be quite as funny as I'm tossing De'Andrequisha's resume in the garbage can because I already know she comes from a stupid pair of idiot parents. Just because someone thinks black people make up stupid non names for their kids does mean they live in a trailer park. In fact, many people who think black people make up stupid names for their kids are the ones who do hiring for large companies, like me.

      Bill Cosby was right.

      Oh well, it depends on the "cut" and as long as she doesn't get a Brazilian wax, not too many folks will even see it. Now stretch marks may be another issue entirely.

    Here is how they got the name "Blue Ivy" for their newborn girl. They chose 200 words from A to Z and posted them on a game room wall. Then they threw darts at the wall and the first two that landed were "Blue" and "Ivy." Papa's surname is Carter, so "Blue Ivy Carter." For the rest of her life.

      Celebrity parents can name their kids ridiculous names because their children will socialize with other children who have equally ridiculous names... and if someone does pick on them.. the kid can just cuddle up with a bunch of $$$$ for comfort....
