Blue Ivy tops list of 10 most influential baby names

Beyonce’s daughter has highest-climbing celebrity name in America


Having been born into a dynasty of music superstars, it is no surprise that Blue Ivy Carter is proving an influential figure at just nine months old.


Baby Blue, daughter of Beyoncé and Jay-Z, recently topped the list of baby names that have seen a surge in popularity after a celebrity has chosen them.

Since her birth in January, Blue Ivy has climbed 33 places on the US Social Security Register, closely followed by Tori Spelling’s daughter’s old-fashioned moniker, Hattie.
