The Mayor of Hvar, a small town in Croatia, has granted Beyonce and Jay-Z’s daughter Blue Ivy an honorary citizenship of the town after a video shot in the town has sparked yet more rumours as to the meaning of the name, reports The Telegraph.
Beyonce and Jay-Z visited Hvar in September 2011, shortly after they announced they were expecting a baby. They shot a video of Beyonce standing next to a tree covered with ivy and saying her child could be named Blue Ivy.
The video has been broadcast recently by media in Croatia and has brought valuable attention to the town, known as the sunniest in Croatia.
According to local news, Mayor Pjerino Bebic sent a letter to the parents saying, “The story of the origin of your girl’s name, Blue Ivy, has brought huge media attention and great tourism promotion to the town of Hvar.
“I have decided to grant your daughter the status of honorary citizen of the town.”
Will Beyonce EVER spill the beans on where the name came from??
