The origin of the name Blue Ivy remains a source of intrigue for close followers of the Carter family. The name could have been inspired by Jay Z's Blueprint albums while Ivy could represent the number four (IV), which corresponds to the birth date of both Beyonce and Jay (Sept. and Dec. 4, respectively). Additionally, Queen Bey's fourth album boasted the title 4.
With all that in mind, one thing is certain: the names of the new Carter child (or children, if all the twin-speculation is borne out) will be just as original and thoughtfully inspired as their older sister's. But, what might those names likely be? Billboard has compiled a list of carefully selected (mostly) gender-neutral possibilities below.
Lemon -- Beyonce's most recent, and acclaimed, album Lemonade is a treasure trove of inspiration. Though the most obvious name off the album would, of course, be Lemon -- or maybe Aidy, if that's too not sweet-sounding enough.
