Ever since the world learned that Beyonce had welcomed twins, rumors about the offsprings’ names and genders were just about everywhere on social media.
Unfortunately, numerous Beyonce baby name rumors means lots of misinformation flying around.
There’s still been no official announcement from the Carter camp, but TMZ is claiming to have obtained legal documents revealing the monikers of Queen Bey’s prince and princess.
(Yes, the site is also confirming it’s a boy and a girl.)
This is the family who gave us Blue Ivy Carter, so it should come as no surprise that the names are a long way off the beaten path.
According to trademark documents filed last week the twins’ names are …
Rumi and Sir Carter!
Filing to trademark the names of infants might be absurd for anyone who’s not Jay Z and Beyonce, but it makes perfect sense for the Carters.
It seems Jay and Bey took the precaution to ensure that no one will use their tykes’ names to cash in by using them to market:
“Fragrances, cosmetics, key chains, baby teething rings, strollers, mugs, water bottles, hair ribbons, playing cards, tote bags, sports balls and rattles and novelty items.”
“Novelty items” is a bit vague, but we suppose if you want to release, say, a line of high-end toothpastes or vitamin supplements, you’re legally in the clear.
You could also use Sir Carter as your rap name, but just know that as soon as the kid can talk, he will destroy you in lyrical combat, and your street cred will never recover from losing a battle to a toddler.
Anyway, the most important thing is that Beyonce and both babies are home, happy and healthy.
The twins remained hospitalized for several days due to unspecified health issues after their birth.
Sources inside the hospital claim both babies were showing signs of jaundice and had to spend some time “under the lights” to correct possible liver issues.
While frightening, it’s not an uncommon occurrence, and both Sir and Rumi are said to have recovered as expected.
Yes, we’re already calling them Sir and Rumi, so we’ll be pretty devastated if this rumor turns out to be inaccurate.
Not only will we have to break the habit of referring to the twins that way, we’ll have to rename our ride-sharing app that we plan to name after them.
