Beyonce and Jay-Z put a lot of thought into their daughter's name "Blue Ivy."

The moment that Beyonce and Jay-Z had their baby, there was already an uproar over the choice of name being Blue Ivy Carter. Some reported it to be in reverse placement while others just wishes to come up with better options. But one thing is for certain – there are a whole lot of meanings behind the moniker Blue Ivy!

The power parents haven’t released a statement explaining why they chose the peculiar name, but with the help of New York Daily News, we came up with a few reasons ourselves.

While Jay-Z’s three “Blueprint” albums are rap classics, Ivy is supposedly a play on words with the roman numeral IV – Jay and B’s wedding anniversary, birthdates, and the name of the pop diva’s fourth solo album.

Take a look at the reasons behind the name Blue Ivy below!
