What do you think of the Beyonce and Jay-Z twins’ names?

A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

About a week after Beyonce gave birth to twins with husband Jay-Z TMZ has the scope on what their names probably are. According to legal documents from the same company that filed for a trademark for Blue Ivy earlier this year, it seems likely that the twins’ names are . . .

Rumi Carter and Sir Carter.

Rumi obviously is a nod to the 13th century poet, but what does is Sir a reference to?

TMZ posits that it’s from a line of Rumi’s poetry, but that seems like a stretch. Romper speculates that because Sir is a Catalan form of Syrus, or Cyrus, which can mean “throne,” then Sir is an adknolwedgement of Jay-Z’s album Watch the Throne.

Whatever it means, it was a smart move to go ahead with the trademark on the names right away because they are currently in a fierce legal battle over using the name Blue Ivy to sell merchandise. The trademarks are reportedly filed for fragrances, cosmetics, key chains, baby teething rings, strollers, mugs, water bottles, hair ribbons, playing cards, tote bags, sports balls, rattles and novelty items.

    Why can’t these celebs name their kids something normal?

      I was shocked, but also relieved, at the normal names George Clooney gave his twins. Thank god.

      • Trump’sTwitter

        Just looked it up and I love their names.

      • FYO

        George Clooney is an adult so I’m not too surprised.

        I love, love, love his twins’ names. They also go together very well without being too matchy, same initial, rhyming etc. Classy names that will suit a person through all life stages.

    Rumi is ok I mean it’s horrible but it’s ok. Way better than Blue. But come on Sir? Sir!? That is beyond ridiculous!!

    • Shanaynay

      Would u expect anything better? Lol

  • Shanaynay

    Again with the writing. Daphne, sweetheart, please proofread! You’re a writer!

  • SweetTeacher

    Sir is a dumb name. That’s all.

    • Kate

      It would be a cute name for like, a kitten or puppy.

  • twelfthnight

    If these kids weren’t rich beyond belief their names would sound like ghetto trash. Just like Kim’s kids, and Tyga’s, and Human Skid Mark Brown’s. All of these names sound like something you’d see a 15 year old highschool dropout single mom name their kid. And that kid would have one hell of a time finding a job because of their stupid name.

    How stupid is Beyonce going to sound saying “Sir, please eat your chicken nuggets and stop throwing them at the walls!” or “Sir! The floor is not a toilet!”…. coincidentally, these are phrases most commonly heard said by retail workers to their patrons… Celebrities, they’re just like us!

    Rumi isn’t bad. I can’t with Sir.

  • Liz

    It’s just great.

  • FYO

    Would’ve been more interesting if they named the kids Mabel and Harold.

  • 2blunt2bbelieved

    Maybe “Sir” is so his son will always be respected when called or referred to.?

  • ameliaBedelia76

    man the illuminati really has these two thinking they are some kind of royalty or something. Sir is implying that this child already has some sort of authority over people in life. Not my life

  • ImOpining

    These poor kids are going to be tortured by these stupid names.

  • Well…

    Rumi is okay. May not be everyone’s style but it at least sounds like a real name, and sort of fits the current naming trends.

    Sir is just cool and like Blue Ivy it seems like they put the possibility of selling sh!t with ‘Sir Carter’ emblazoned on it, over the fact that their child actually has to live with this gawd awful name forever. I hope someone else already got the trademark for that one too. You can so tell they only named the first kid something so stupid so they could sell overpriced crap to stupid people.

    • Well…

      Cruel* Sir is just cruel not cool. 😛
