Why is Jay-Z daughter named Blue Ivy?

A more legitimate explanation for the name comes courtesy of People and other outlets, which points out that “Blue” may be a reference to Jay-Z’s “Blueprint” albums, and Ivy may be a riff on the number four, a lucky one for Beyonce and her husband. (IV is, of course, the roman numeral four.)
