JAY-Z and Beyonce’s Twins’ Names Revealed
It looks like we know the names of JAY-Z and Beyonce‘s twin babies. According to TMZ, the little moguls-in-the-making are named Rumi and Sir Carter. There are reportedly legal documents that have surfaced.
On the same day that the twins went home, Monday, June 26, a company run by Bey and Jay that owns the trademarks to their names filed legal docs to secure rights to the names “Rumi Carter” and “Sir Carter.” The same company filed for a Blue Ivy trademark earlier this year.
It’s speculated that “Rumi” is an homage to the 13th century Persian poet who referenced “Sir” in one of his most famous poems:
“Bring the pure wine of
love and freedom.
But sir, a tornado is coming.
More wine, we’ll teach this storm
A thing or two about whirling.”
Of course, JAY-Z and Beyonce are already the subjects of much conversation, with the release of Jay’s uber-personal new album 4:44. The album has drawn raves from fans and features the rapper laying bare his insecurities, family issues, ideas about Black progress and his own philandering:
“Look, I apologize, often womanize/Took for my child to be born/See through a woman’s eyes/Took for these natural twins to believe in miracles/Took me too long for this song…Like the men before me, I cut off my nose to spite my face/I never wanted another woman to know/Something about me that you didn’t know/I promised I cried I couldn’t hold/I suck at love, I think I need a do-over/I will be emotionally available if I invited you over/I stew over what if you over my sh-t?…And if my children knew, I don’t even know what I would do/If they ain’t look at me the same/I would prolly die with all the shame/“You did what with who?”/What good is a ménage à trois when you have a soulmate?/“You risked that for Blue?”
