Beyoncé and JAY-Z didn't disappoint when they announced their twins' unusual names. We're especially intrigued by their choice of the word "Sir," which has particular meaning in the UK. Certain members of the gentry, nobility, and knights are officially referred to as Sir, as are some members of the royal family and the peerage system. There are official peerage ranks, like Duke, Duchess, Earl, and Baron, as well as Dame, Lord, and Lady from the British honours system and chivalric order, that all work well as names. If you like the sound of this for your little one, take a look at more titles from English royalty, peerage, nobility, and aristocracy. Then check out a theory for the inspiration behind Sir Carter's name, and discover what the name Rumi means too.
