Beyoncé and Jay-Z have allegedly filed an application to trademark their daughter Blue Ivy's name.

According to the Washington Post, the superstar couple have approached the US Patent and Trademark Office after a series of failed bids from several third parties.

It is thought that fashion designer Joseph Mbeh tried to trademark Blue Ivy Carter NYC on 11th January, while another unknown applicant attempted to trademark Blue Ivy Carter Glory IV to be used for fragrances on 20th January.

The newspaper claims that the office declined both applications, stating that Blue Ivy was the name of a "very famous infant" and that products with the same name could imply false approval from her parents.

Queen B's company BGK Trademark Holdings in likely to be granted the request as parents are allowed to trademark their children's names when they are still minors.

Earlier this week, the Single Ladies hitmaker made her first appearance since giving birth to Blue Ivy on 7th January, attending one of Jigga's gigs in New York.
