Meet Beyoncé's new twins: Rumi and Sir Carter


After much anticipation, the world has been blessed with two more Beyoncé offspring. And, to no surprise, the Gemini twins boast unorthodox names: Rumi and Sir Carter, TMZ first reported.

Nearly ten days after Beyoncé gave birth to the twins on June 17th, she and her husband Jay-Z filed legal documents earlier this week to secure rights to the names--presumably to be used for branding purposes on apparel and accessories. Earlier this year, the Carters filed the same legal docs for five-year-old Blue Ivy, whose name has been featured in beauty products and workout clothes.

Not all, though, agree with the Carters' move to trademark their daughter's name.

It's uncertain where the Carters' received their inspiration for their twins' names, though, Rumi is often associated with a renowned 13th century Persian poet. The name "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.
