Beyoncé and Jay-Z have apparently named their twins Rumi and Sir

Name a more iconic duo. We’ll wait.

A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on


A FEW WEEKS ago, Beyoncé reportedly gave birth to her twins in a Los Angeles hospital.

Since then, details have been scant with the singer declining to comment on either the birth or her new arrivals.

But now TMZ is reporting that Bey and Jay have named their bundles of joy Rumi and Sir. The website states that the couple trademarked the names Rumi and Sir Carter earlier this week.

We know that because the company run by Bey and Jay that owns the trademarks to their names filed legal docs Monday, June 26 — right around the time the twins went home — to secure rights to the names Rumi Carter and Sir Carter. The docs are filed by the same company that filed for a Blue Ivy trademark earlier this year.

You can view the trademark applications here and here. The documents show that the applications were made by BGK Holdings, which owns the trademarks to Beyoncé and Beyhive, among other things.

Why Rumi and Sir, you ask?

Rumi appears to be an homage to a 13th-century Persian poet of the same name, who just so happens to be one of the bestselling poets in America. Sir, meanwhile, is supposedly a reference to one of the poet’s best-known verses.

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.

You can’t say they don’t think these things through anyway.

So far, the names have divided the internet.

Although some are willing to give it a go.

In fairness, we got used to Blue. We’ll get used to Rumi and Sir.
