    Congrats to the beautiful Queen B. Take as much time as you need to rest up and be with your daughter:) I hope they release some pics or something. PEOPLE or US weekly would probably pay MILLIONS to get their hands on them first.

    Let’s take Ivy first:
    The word IV(y) includes the roman numeral for Beyoncé’s favoritest number in the world, the number four, or IV.
    As the singer, whose latest album is titled 4, or the Arabic numeral for four, told Billboard in May, 2011, “It’s the day I was born [Sept. 4, 1981]. My mother’s birthday [Célestine Ann “Tina” Beyoncé was born Jan. 4, 1954], and a lot of my friends’ birthdays, are on the fourth.”
    And, let’s not forget that B & J were wed on April 4, 2008.
    An added four-reference: B’s album 4, was released in the year 2011 (on June 24), and 2+0+1+1 adds up to 4!

    @Alfonso, What about Blue?
    This one’s easy, say the rationalists: If Ivy is all about Beyoncé, the meaning and origins of Blue come from her husband, Jay-Z, who’s all into the concept of the blueprint, which has the word blue in it.
    Jay-Z has three (not four?!) albums with the word in their titles: The Blueprint (2001), The Blueprint 2: The Gift & The Curse (2002), and The Blueprint 3 (2009).
    What’s more, he considers himself the blueprint – the paradigm, the Alpha and Omega – of rappers and rap itself, says People.com.
    “I’m the Blueprint, I’m like the map for ‘em,” Jay-Z proclaims in “A Star Is Born,” from The Blueprint 3.

    @Alfonso, Jay-Z and Beyoncé friend Russell Simmons sees a spiritual, albeit not necessarily religious, dimension in Blue Ivy.
    “As far as the color blue, it’s considered the coolest color of the spectrum,” Simmons writes on his website, globalgrind.com.
    “Ancient Egyptians used blue to represent the heavens. Blue also symbolizes the Virgin Mary. The color represents inspiration, sincerity and spirituality.”
    Simmons is on a roll, teasing out and weaving in some very cool mythological associations out of the baby’s name.
    He attacks the name Ivy thus. ““The name itself Ivy comes from the plant which symbolizes eternity,” Simmons writes.
    “Greek and Roman societies admired the ivy plant for its hardiness and longevity. They believed the plant aided fertility. Could this mean more children for Beyoncé and Hova?”
    Speaking of names, Simmons uses the name Hova, which is one of Jay-Z’ preferred nicknames. It’s also the title of one of his numbers, “Izzo (H.O.V.A.).”

    @AlfoThe anti-rationalist Satanic (nutsoid) reading
    Some folks aren’t satisfied.
    They want more. They want to find darkness where there is light, death where there is love, evil where there is innocence.
    You know, the kind of people who’d play Led Zep and Sabbath albums backwards looking for instructions from the beyond. Or, to be more precise, instructions from Down Below
    They point out that Blue Ivy was born on Jan. 7, 2012 and 1+7+2+0+1+2 adds up to … 13!
    nso,

    @Orlando, I guess all parents who will be parents this year and the number makes up 13 when added are evil

    OMG. People are acting like they are royalty. No doubt, caring for a child is beautiful (whether it’s yours or not – no shade lol), but it’s little over-the-top.
