Eulb Yvi: Is Blue Ivy Baby Name Sparking False Illuminati Rumors?
The idea that Babyonce's name Blue Ivy translates to the name of Lucifer's daughter in Latin when spelled backwards as "Eulb Yvi" has been all the rage since Beyonce and Jay-Z's pink bundle of joy made her arrival into the world on Jan. 7.
The crackpot theories have been overwhelming. Whether or not you think it's disrespectful to the proud parents and a two-day-old infant, there's people out there who really and truly believe that the moniker Blue Ivy is proof positive of Jayonce's membership in the much-rumored Illuminati. Ever stop for a minute to think that maybe it's just a combo of Bey's favorite color and plant?
However, a closer examination (provided by The Examiner) shoots down many of these theories that the baby's name has nefarious origins and is therefore a hellion about to bring down the planet.
First, the idea that Blue Ivy backwards – Eulb Yvi -- is Latin for the name of Lucifer's female offspring is full of theoretical and factual holes. There is no proof that Lucifer even had a daughter. She's not mentioned in the Bible. And there has been no proof that such a translation of those words exists.
Also, the idea that angels, fallen or otherwise, can even have sex and reproduce, is a biblical hot topic. Lucifer is a fallen angel, but an angel nonetheless, so his reproductive capacity is in question and hotly debated among scholars of biblical texts.
However, other biblical academics feel that angels can reproduce, courtesy of a line in Genesis, Chapter 6. Some scholars of this text believe that fallen angels, like Lucifer, impregnated human women with an interspecies (of sorts) mutant that caused havoc on the earth, since they were monstrous giants that caused God to send the flood that is famous in the Noah's Arc story.
Also, we tried to find the translation of Blue Ivy spelled backwards – AKA Eulb Yvi -- and it doesn't show up … Anywhere. We ran the words on several online Latin dictionaries and translators and no such results were returned.
So this theory that spread quickly and trended online seems to be like Swiss cheese -- full of holes.
Perhaps conspiracy theorists and Illuminati watchers can find something better to do with their time? While we understand the idea that celebrities are fair game for gossip and chatter given their public profiles, associating someone's newborn infant with Satan is hurtful stuff.
