Beyonce Explains Blue Ivy’s Name


Beyonce Knowles posted an excerpt of the 2005 novel by Rebecca Solnit on her Tumblr account, on Wednesday, June 13, 2012, to tell her curious fans of the inspiration behind her baby’s unusual name, Blue Ivy Carter.

The singer, who is married to rapper Jay-Z, gave birth to their first child in January. “The world is blue at its edges and in its depths,” the New York Daily quoted the excerpt. “This blue is the light that got lost. Light at the end blue end of the spectrum does not travel the whole distance from the sun to us. It disperses among the molecules of the air, it scatters in the water. Water is colorless, shallow water appears to be the color of whatever lies underneath it, but deep water is full of this scattered light, the purer the water the deeper the blue.
