If you’ve woken up this morning and are wondering why your Internet connection is working uncharacteristically slow this morning, it’s because Beyonce gave birth to her baby girl, Ivy Blue Carter and of course this is causing her fans from around the world to slowly combust with crazy excitement.
While Ivy is a beautiful name, there might be some drawbacks to naming the princess of the Illuminati a potentially poisonous plant. Yet, while many major media outlets including People and E! Online are reporting that Beyonce’s daughter’s name is Blue Ivy, we’re not sure if that’s correct. We don’t think the world’s most celebrated couple would name their daughter after a color.
(Baby Carter’s nannies in the future: “Awww, she’s upset. Blue is blue because she has a boo-boo.” Oh gosh, that would be an epic fail.)
While Google, Twitter and multiple news outlets are saying the baby’s name is Ivy Blue, a lot of gossip sites are sourcing that the baby’s name is indeed Blue Ivy. The controversy doesn’t seem to stop, now does it?
While Ivy is cute (and Blue isn’t), Brooklyn Houston Carter would have been a more meaningful, powerful-in-the-celebrity-baby-world name. Brooklyn, of course being where her father Jay-Z is from and Houston paying homage to the mother’s hometown. Now a name like that would guarantee street cred for the rest of the little girl’s life.
Now that the most controversial pregnancy of 2011 is over and Time Magazine’s 2012′s Person of the Year is here, it’s going to be a media race to see the baby’s first pictures. Here’s hoping Beyonce and Jay-Z will go back to living their private, personal lives and Ivy Blue (or Blue Ivy) will be able to enjoy a life in complete security with her billions of dollars in her mansion-like nursery.
In the meantime, let’s get this name sorted out. That, or E! Online needs to sort out their typo.
