Reports have revealed the names and sexes of Beyoncé and JAY-Z newborn twins, reportedly a daughter and a son, may be named Rumi and Sir Carter. This is ccording to trademark documents filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on Monday and obtained by PEOPLE.
We’ve did some some digging and research to find neither Rumi nor Sir are in the top 1,000 names for any year of birth beginning with 1900. But this year, Rumi was ranked #2,956 and Sir was ranked #1,925.Beyoncé isn’t the first celebrity to name their child Rumi; actress Josie Maran welcomed daughter Rumi in 2006.
What are the meanings and/or significances behind Rumi and Sir?
After news of the names broke, fans immediately took to social media to find the meaning of these names, and this is what some fans came up with:
Rumi is so little heard of that it’s put in the unisex category. Though the name has distinctly feminine origins, the most famous bearer is male.
The thirteenth-century Persian thinker and writer of the same name (full name: Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī) influenced languages and literature through his works and holds the title of being the best-selling poet in the U.S.
Sir is most commonly a title given to a man knighted by the British monarch. If that wasn’t regal enough, JAY-Z may have named his son after one of his favorite rappers.
Hip-hop artist Sir the Baptist opened for Beyoncé last year at the the Tidal X 1015 event in October 2016.
Rumi and Sir Carter! Of course! Queen Beyonce gave us every sign possible, and we ignored them.
