The world famous American singer Beyonce recently announced on her official website, that during their stay on the sunniest Croatian island of Hvar last summer, while taking a morning stroll with husband Jay-Z, they spotted an interesting tree and decided to name their first born daughter Blue Ivy after it. After little Blue Ivy Carter was born, many wondered where her parents got the inspiration for her name, which they even protected by copyright, and now this mystery has been revealed. "While walking this morning we came across this beautiful blue tree. I think it's called blue ivy. It will be very appropriate ", explained Beyonce in a private video recording, on her new website where she also published a series of photographs from her private life, including those recorded during the two summer holidays in Croatia. The Dalmatian island of Hvar has been famous for its important strategic and nautical location, its various historical periods, cultural and natural monuments, and literature since the ancient times.
