The Beyhive’s long national nightmare is now over — Beyoncé has given birth to her twins.
Multiple sources confirmed to Us Weekly Saturday that Mr. and Mrs. Carter welcomed a baby boy and a baby girl in mid-June. This is the second and third child for 35-year-old music sensation, who already has daughter Blue Ivy with her 47-year-old rapper beau.
But their well-protected monikers have remained a mystery, until now.
According to TMZ, a company run by the media moguls filed to trademark the names “Rumi” and “Sir Carter.” Documents allegedly filed on Monday, June 26, right around the suspected birth of the highly anticipated children, confirm that both Beyoncé and Jay-Z secured rights to the names.
Earlier reports by TMZ indicate that the same company filed a trademark for “Blue Ivy,” the name of Jay-Z and Beyonce’s five-year-old child.
People later reported that the trademark covers everything from “fragrances and cosmetics to baby gear, tote bags, and water bottles.”
Some believe that the name “Rumi” is in homage to famed 13th-century poet and writer Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī, though neither parent has made an official statement on the babies’ names or sexes.
That doesn’t mean fans aren’t having a field day speculating. Justin Kirkland of Entertainment Weekly believed he cracked the case long ago:
Rumi and Sir Carter! Of course!

And while a few fans are into the unique names…

Still hoping Rumi and Sir are not the twins names. Rumi can stay, Sir can exit stage left. pic.twitter.com/HRfbEQsZyh

Some even refuse to believe the news until “Queen Bey” herself breaks it:
It’s clear that fans are not “crazy in love” with the superstar’s name choices. But time will tell if those are truly the chosen names of the heirs to the couple’s music kingdom.
