Let’s be honest. There are a lot of celebrity kid names that just shouldn’t see the light of day. Most even seem to come out of nowhere. Pilot Inspektor, anyone?
But when Beyonce and Jay-Z announced that their baby girl would be named Blue Ivy Carter, there were mixed reactions. I personally love the name and think that while it holds originality, it seems relatively normal. But where did the clever moniker come from?
Beyonce and Jay-Z recently revealed a personal home video while vacationing in Croatia – a few months into Bey’s pregnancy. And lo and behold, Beyonce came across a blue ivy tree!
“We woke up this morning, took a nice little walk, passed by this beautiful blue tree,” Beyonce says in the video. “I think it’s Blue Ivy, which would be quite appropriate!”
But according to the video, it seems as though Blue Ivy’s name was picked out before the encounter took place. Was it meant to be? We’re not sure, but at least we know what a Blue Ivy is now.
Watch the video below.
