Was Blue Ivy Carter Named After a Literary Reference?
"The world is blue at its edges and in its depths," Beyonce recently posted on her Tumblr account. "This blue is the light that got lost." The lines are an excerpt from Rebecca Solnit's book, "A Field Guide to Getting Lost," and now, the Atlantic Wire is hoping that's what inspired Bey and Jay-Z's daughter's name. "If 'A Field Guide' happens to be sitting on Beyoncé and Jay-Z's bookshelf, you have to give them some credit: it's deep," says a post on the website. "And after the song Jay-Z wrote about his daughter, which contains the lyric, 'You're my child of a child from Destiny's Child,' we could use a little depth." (Jezebel)
