Beyoncé baby watch ends with an unusual baby name

Beyoncé and Jay Z are finally parents! While the couple chose a somewhat unusual name, it isn’t the craziest celeb baby name ever. What do you think of their baby name choice?

Beyonce baby name

Blue Ivy was welcomed to the world on Saturday by proud parents Beyoncé and Jay Z, ending the daily question: Is Beyoncé still pregnant?

Less than two weeks ago, a rumor circulated that Beyoncé had given birth to a girl named Tiana-May Carter. Alas, it was just that: a rumor. And apparently, the name Tiana-May was way too plain for the celeb powerhouse couple.

Blue Ivy — the baby’s chosen name, according to E! News — was born on Saturday via a scheduled C-section. Friends Russell Simmons and Rihanna tweeted their congrats.

Celeb baby names

What do you think of the name Blue Ivy? Celebs are known for giving their babies less-than-conventional names. In fact, some celebrity baby names often leave us asking, “Huh?”

In 2011, celebs chose some weird baby names! It seems that Alicia Silverstone took the cake last year with Bear Blu, a name she called “super cute.” What do you think about Beyoncé’s baby name choice in comparison? Does the middle name make Blue Ivy a little less unusual?

Celebs also chose some great names in 2011. We loved Delilah (Kimberly Stewart and Benicio del Toro), Mia (Ian Ziering), Faith (Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban), Skyler (Rachel Zoe and Rodger Berman) and Flynn (Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr).

Baby naming
