There's been much talk about Beyonce & Jay-Z's name choice and the meaning behind it. As for naming her Blue, CelebrityBabyScoop offers:

"The color blue has been a fave of the rapper's for years, as he notes in the song, 'Go Crazy,' 'My favorite hue is Jay-Z blue.' And of course, there are also the three highly successful Blueprint albums he released in 2001, 2002, and 2009."

Ivy is speculated to represent the roman numeral 4 (IV), as that number is very special to Blue Ivy's parents. "Beyoncé's birthday is on September 4, Jay-Z's is December 4, they were married on April 4, and the title of Knowles' latest album? Yup, 4," clarifies CelebrityBabyScoop. Beyonce's Bizarre Pregnancy Cravings
