    Ivy's a perfectly decent name. But Blue... Blue. That poor little rich baby. Can you imagine the teasing.

    Blue may be an unusual name, but there are several baby girls names that are a reference to blue, generally related to descriptions of blue.

    I am just thinking that she will need months of muscle training/PT to get that C-Section tummy back into the dancing strength shape

    Poor baby with an awful name. At least she has Ivy to fall back on.

    But not everyone knows those names mean blue and a name like Azure sounds more exotic.

    Blue doesn't just mean a color it also can mean sad. I'm thinking of kids saying to the kid, Blueeeee Lonesome, Lonesome for you. To name a few things this kid is going to be saddled with. It will be easier to make fun of that name than Apple (even if Apple is weirder.). They should have named her Ivy Blue (at least) At least the child wasn't named Bear Blu (like apparently what Alicia Silverstone named her little boy)

    Not a smart name.

    Elvis Presley: "I'll have a bluuuuuuuueeee Christmas, without you...."

    Brittany Taylor (on Daria): "Is that name OK? Because I was thinking of changing it to 'Blue'."

    It also sounds like "blew", so you know this girl is getting teased in high school.

    A friend of mine is named Blue. He's a well-known and well-liked distinguished professor--I don't think anyone ever made fun of his name.

    And don't we just know that the tabloids will be full of "Body After Baby!!!" stories with lots of $$$ shout-outs to her trainers, nutritionists, Spanx suppliers, etc. etc. etc.

    No doubt the plastic surgeon was on hand to give Beyonce a simultaneous tummy tuck/lipo after the birth. :shuffle:

    But anyway, congratulations to Beyonce and Jay-Z!

    In his entire X number of years on the planet, including elementary school, middle school, and high school, no one ever made fun of his name?

    Good to know.

    Blue Ivy kind of sounds like a Batman villain name. :lol:

    Lil Blue will probably be going to school with Harper Seven, etc so I wouldn't worry too much about being bullied. ;)

    I think it's a beautiful name ... :shuffle:

    Maybe it's my background but I don't get the level of :scream::rolleyes::yikes::mad: people have towards unusual English names. This is one area people seem to like conforming and do not encourage creativity. I guess it's language related.

    I don't mind it. I think it's a cute name. Wouldn't name my own kid that but as far as celeb names go, it's a nice one.

    So did she really have the baby or what? Anyone remember the FakeBellyGate?

    I think the name is very pretty. It's way better than a lot of other celebrity baby names (Audio Science, Pilot Inspektor...) while still being semi-original.

    Kenny Rogers had a show??? :scream:


    My good friend had a dog named Blue, and I'll always think of Blue's Clues.

    I just love that her initials are B.I.C.

    Jeremy Sisto has a daughter named Charley-Ballerina :eek:

    If we don't like it, we're entitled to say that we don't like it. Just as you are entitled to say that you like it.

    Congrats to the couple.....of course, all I can think is that if she looks like her father she's going to have bigger problems than her name.

    Parents have the right to name their kids whatever they want, although I've always wondered about the logic that's used when they hang these atrocious names on these poor kids. Don't they know that these kids go thru life paying for their parents' desire to come up with these most unique and creative names?

    Ivy is a cute name, Blue is just weird. :huh:

    I'm just glad she was born on Saturday night and not Sunday. Don't want to share my spotlight :drama:

    Seriously, though - congrats to Beyonce and Jay-Z

    Blue and Ivy are both nice names but I don't think they go well together.

    Yes, because Beyonce is such a common name...
