Beyonce's Baby Is Named Blue Ivy, What Do You Think Of The Name?

Making fun of celebrity baby names is an easy target, but it's hard to avoid it when Beyonce and Jay-Z have given us such a prime new one. Welcome to the world, Blue Ivy Carter! The name has been reported all over the place, including Gwyneth Paltrow's Twitter feed, which seems somehow appropriate-- after all, she's the one who named her daughter Apple in in 2004, giving lazy jokesters years worth of "crazy celebrity baby name" material.
We can speculate forever about the potential inspiration for Blue Ivy's name-- I'm gonna go out on a limb and say it's after the Joni Mitchell album Blue and their aspirations for her to attend an Ivy League College, but feel free to shoot that one down. What's really important, though, is that we all judge this child's name the minute she has been brought into the world. If you're willing to talk about the names your relatives give their kids behind their backs, then two global superstars are fair game too. Vote in the poll below and let us know what you think of naming your kid Ivy Blue, and feel free to suggest some even weirder celebrity names in the comments to prove that Jay-Z and Beyonce really aren't crazy, just a little too inventive. I mean, they could have gone the George Foreman route and just named her Jay-Y or something. Or even Mariah Carey calling her son "Moroccan" seems more insane. To me Babyonce's name is just different enough to be distinguished without going totally over the top into crazytown.
