Rumi and Sir Carter Confirmed: And Now Us Peons Try Decoding Their Sex (An Exercise)

img_8466

Just because Beyonce has revealed the names of her twins, Rumi and Sir Carter, early this morning doesn’t mean she is done dangling Swarovski –encrusted carrots in our faces.

We still don’t know the sex of the babies.


Now when TMZ revealed earlier this month  that Beyonce’s trademark holding company BGK Trademark Holdings (Beyonce Gisele Knowles) sought to claim Rumi and Sir Carter, TMZ also assumed then the babies were a girl and boy.

Perhaps they jumped the shark and we all joined in! Hmmmm. * side eye emoji *

The name Rumi appears to be homage to a 13th century Persian poet by that name — and Sir happens to be referenced in one of his most famous poems:

“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.”

Sir is a very masculine name as knighted men are called Sir and as we know in formal chatter men are called sir and women are called madame.

The trademarks are for fragrances, cosmetics, key chains, baby teething rings, strollers, mugs, water bottles, hair ribbons, playing cards, tote bags, sports balls, rattles and novelty items.

Hair ribbons?! Girl no?!

Thus Boy & Girl. Right!?

It is still not clear and apparently, people are fighting about it in social media.

A friend of mine and I had a lengthy convo this morning about this very subject when she asked me to confirm the sex of the babies.

She pointed out the fact that it looks like the  emoji’s on her caption are two boys.

And she pointed out that Bey is wearing a purple and blue robe and purple is a color often associated with girls as well,  so there is that also.

And I learn from the Internet that the clothing is from a Spanish designer Paloma Spain who is known for androgynous clothing

Is this an ode to the late great Prince or something?

Hrmph!!!

Long story short, no, Bey is not done messing with us.

I agree with Sarran at this point:

Beyonce Introduces Twins on Their One Month Birthday

img_8456

Happy One Birthday to Sir And Rumi Carter who made their public debut today when shortly after midnight, their mom Beyonce posted on her Instagram a gloriously extra portrait of herself holding the two blessings.

Sir Carter and Rumi 1 month today. 🙏🏽❤️👨🏽👩🏽👧🏽👶🏾👶🏾

A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

It didn’t take long for the photo, captioned “Sir Carter and Rumi 1 month today” to get 4 million likes and that was before the dawn of a new day on the East Coast.


We predict another Instagram like record to be shattered.

Mrs. Knowles broke the last record when she announced the pregnancy with the twins in the first place at the beginning of the year.

That photo garnered 6.3 Million likes in about 8 hours “!

This Internet-breaking photo also confirmed what TMZ first reported: the names of the twins.

The celebrity gossip’s sites sleuths discovered recently that the same company that tried to trademark Blue Ivy had applied to protect Sir Carter and Rumi Carter’s names at the US Patent and Trademark Office.

Editor’s Note: I want to give a shout out to insominia for learning of this news so early. I woke up at 4 am, took a shower, scrubbed my bathtub, put some shower curtains and then a couple sets of sheets in the washer, and braided my daughter’s hair before finally turning on my phone to see my friend who is CNN’s Entertainment Digital maven share the news. H/T to the phenomenal Lisa France. Now I can fall asleep happy. LOL!

 

Beyonce and Jay Z have Already Trademarked These Names of the Twins

Apparently, Beyonce and Jay Z’s twins may be named Rumi Carter and Sir Carter, or a derivative of  those names.

This would likely confirm that they are a baby boy and girl. Reportedly, the couple has already filed trademark protection claims for the names.

According to CNN, a company that has registered other marks for the famous duo recently filed paperwork to protect those names.

Recall after they welcomed 5-year old Blue Ivy, Beyonce Knowles Carter and husband Shawn Carter attempted to claim her name for purposes of future marketing Baby-related products  but lost to an event planner who had already secured the name and had been using it in the stream of commerce for a while.

It would be interesting to know if they did advance research before settling on a name.

Similar with the first claim, the new one also asserts the names would be used to sell an array of goods, including skin and hair products, key chains, DVDs, CDs,teething rings, baby carriages and strollers.

Speaking of Shawn Carter, he dropped his last album, “4:44”  yesterday which is supposedly autobiographical and responds to cheating allegations that have encircled the couple since that infamous elevator Solange beat down and  Beyonce’s Lemonade album. The entire project seemed to be about the road from infidelity to redemption in their marriage but who knows.

They both could be just yanking our chain.
