Beyonce & Jay Z’s Twins’ Names Revealed


With a big sister named Blue Ivy, Beyonce and Jay Z’s new twins were always going to have unusual monikers.And despite the couple’s silence on their new babies – they have yet to even officially confirm the birth – their names appear to have finally emerged.The newborns were revealed to be named Rumi and Sir Carter, after their parents filed trademarks to protect the names.

While both names are distinctly unusual choices, Sir is the more uncommon of the two – with the name normally used as a title before a man’s first name.Meanwhile Rumi is a Japanese girls name, and also the last name of the famed 13th century Persian poet Jelaluddin Rumi.

Along with their boy-girl twins, the couple are also parents to five-year-old daughter Blue Ivy.The 35-year-old singer and the New York-born rap star welcomed their twins into the world earlier this month and are both said to be overjoyed.
