Jay-Z and Beyonce may love their daughter's name but one comedian doesn't. According to a Page Six article posted on Tuesday, Feb. 18, comedian Jay Pharoah, during his show over the weekend at Carolines, likened the famous couple's daughter's name to something that strippers would use.

He said that the rapper named his daughter, Blue Ivy, after "a stripper lotion."

Jay-Z wasn't the only person the comedian made fun of at the show.

"I love his music and I think he’s a good boxer,” he said of Chris Brown, an obvious reference to his assault on ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

"R. Kelly makes great music and I don’t care who he peed on," he said of the R&B singer, who was actually charged in 2002 with child pornography after a sex tape showing him having sex and urinating an underage girl was revealed.

There have been speculation that Jay-Z and Beyonce named their daughter Blue Ivy after his Blueprint albums and the Roman numeral (IV) of her favorite number, four.

Perhaps the comedian will be poking fun of the name that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian gave their daughter, North, next?

Which couple do you think did a better job of naming their child? Jay-Z and Beyonce or Kanye West and Kim Kardashian?
