Beyonce & Jay-Z's Baby Name — The Meaning Behind Blue Ivy!

Mon, January 9, 2012 3:42pm EST by 91 Comments

Find out why the superstar baby’s name is filled with symbolism!

On Jan. 7, Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z checked into Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City to welcome a new baby girl! We love the name Blue Ivy Carter, but what’s the meaning behind it?

‘Blue’ is significant, as Jay-Z, 42, has released a series of popular and critically acclaimed albums in his Blueprint series. He’s often said that blue is his favorite color, as in songs like “Go Crazy” remix, he rhymes that, “My favorite hue is Jay-Z blue.”

As for ‘Ivy,’ it isn’t a coincidence that the name and Roman number IV are so alike — and a huge part of Beyonce and Jay-Z’s life. The number four is dear to the celebrity couple: Beyonce was born on September 4, Jay-Z was born on December 4, and the two wed on April 4th, 2008! Beyonce’s latest album — her fourth — was even called 4!

Do YOU like Blue Ivy for a baby name?

You’re all superstitious, and superstition is bad. What; do you also believe in the myth that the direction a necklace swings to determines a baby’s sex? Blue is a color, and also a surname (some surnames become first names). The name Ivy means “faithfulness” and is a very beautiful name; I wish my name was Ivy instead of Kristi.

Beyonce and Jay Z worship Satan and Blue ivy means the spawn of Satan.Pity they chose the losing side.Life is short…then comes the judgement.Maybe they should wear something cool when they die…it might be pretty hot where their going
