The names of Beyoncé and Jay Z's newborn twins have been released, and it seems as though the American power couple was inspired by Middle Eastern and Islamic literature.

According to reports, the American musicians have named one of their twins after the famous Persian Muslim poet Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi.

While the Carter family has yet to officially confirm the names of their twins, media outlets found out that the couple has filed to register two names as trademarks: "Rumi Carter" and "Sir Carter". 

On June 18, Beyoncé's father announced that she had given birth to twins - a boy and a girl, according to TMZ's sources. 

E! News' sources confirmed Queen Bey and her twins have returned home and are "doing great", after staying at the hospital for an extended amount of time. 

A company owned by the Carter family has reportedly filed legal documents to trademark the names "Rumi Carter" and "Sir Carter" and secure exclusive rights to these names, which are most likely the names of the newborn Carter twins.

E! News reports that the Carters have requested trademarks to be used for different merchandise, such as baby teething rings and strollers.

While the name "Sir" is yet to be explained, Rumi Carter was most likely inspired by renowned 13th-century Persian Muslim poet, jurist, Islamic scholar and theologian Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi, commonly known as Rumi. 

One of the best-selling poets in the United States, Rumi writes about joy and love and is known for promoting meditation.

In the months leading up to the birth of the twins, Beyonce did not shy away from using Middle Eastern and North African motifs in many of her photo shoots.

Not the first to use the name

According to Baby Center, 13 babies per million in the U.S. were named Rumi in 2016.

Rumi is a Japanese name that means "flow" and "beauty", according to Nameberry.

Syrian-American Muslim poet and activist Mona Haydar, known for the viral rap music video "Hijabi"gave birth to a baby boy earlier this year and named him Rumi.

"Everyone texting me saying '@BEYONCÉ COPIED YOU' by naming one of her babies, Rumi. I'm over her like, Beyoncé has good taste," tweets Haydar.

This wouldn't be the first time the Carter family opts for a unique name and tries to trademark it. 

Beyonce and Jay Z had requested to trademark their first daughter Blue Ivy's name shortly after she was born in 2012. However, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office ruled against the trademark at the time, after an event planning company named Blue Ivy, which was founded 2009, petitioned against the Carters' request.
