Beyonce Files for Trademark for Rumi Carter and Sir Carter After Twins’ Birth

Didn't know that you could trademark names of people who have accomplishing nothing except to be born...

Quote:
It looks like Beyonce might have dropped a big clue as to the names of her newborn twins, though in a stealth way.

A company associated with Beyonce has filed papers to trademark the names "Rumi Carter" and "Sir Carter," just days after the "Single Ladies" singer and her husband Jay Z welcomed twins.

The applications were filed June 26 by BGK Trademark Holdings, which holds a host of Beyonce-related trademarks and alsoapplied to trademark the name Blue Ivy Carter -- Beyonce and Jay Z's first child. (Beyonce's full birth name is Beyonce Giselle Knowles -- initials BGK.)

These super rich are clearly wacko. Most of them would be in prison or dead if they couldn't sing or dribble a basketball.

Neopolitan is an unknown quantity at this point
It seems reasonable that she wouldn't want others to profit off her children's names. She's not trademarking "Jennifer Carter." Any use of those names would clearly be an attempt to profit off her and Jay Z's, and in turn their children's, likeness.

Lucky for you, you're not wacko, so you won't want to.

My last name isn't Carter, so I have nothing to worry about.

No one is saying you can't name your kid something, just that you couldn't name your kid Rumi Carter and then try and profit off that fact alone.

Not a firm understanding of how trademark laws work I take it?
