Sometimes, celebrities give such stupid names to their kids you can only wonder where that sort of thing came from. So when Jay Z and Beyonce had their little girl last weekend and named her Blue Ivy, you're almost right that it sounds silly. But wait, there's a story behind it apparently. Us.com has the answer:
Jay-Z (fans) have long known that blue holds a special place in his heart. “My favorite hue is Jay-Z blue,” he rapped in the song “Go Crazy”. There were even unrealized plans to feature the unique shade on a line of SUVs. And, Jay-Z has released three beloved Blueprint albums in 2001, 2002 and 2009. That middle name “Ivy,” reportedly references the Roman numeral (”IV”) for 4 … Beyonce’s birthday is Sept. 4, Jay-Z’s is Dec. 4, they were married on April 4, 2008, and the singer’s latest album is entitled 4.
