I guess it’s entirely possible that Beyoncé and Jay Z named their firstborn Blue Ivy because it’s an adorable name and it’s unique and they like it. But that would be no fun, so enter the internet with all kinds of theories about why they actually did it.
Setting aside that theory that it’s because “Blue Ivy” spelled backward means “daughter of Satan” in Latin because it’s demonstrably false (anyone with Google can tell you “daughter of Satan” in Latin is “filia Satan”) and also *eye roll*, there’s this fun tweet going around that claims to be proof that Blue has her name because Bey and Jay are the Illuminati’s secret rulers.
