Everyone can rest easy, Beyoncé and JAY-Z have saved 2o17. Their beautiful baby twins have finally arrived and the world is just catching the first sound of their names.

According to The Hollywood Gossip, a source at the hospital reportedly says Bey and Jay named their new son and daughter Sean and Bea, respectively. However, other outlets are reporting their son's name is actually Shawn Jr.

Let me be the first to say I love it. It's a triumph. They're the world's most perfect names. Of course, this is still just a rumor. Elite Daily reached out to Beyoncé and JAY-Z's teams for confirmation, but did not hear back by time of publication.

Sure, sure... Bey and Jay are so much more than your average Hollywood stars, but they are celebrities. This means they aren't immune to picking weird AF baby names. They totally could have decided on any of the following and we would have been like, "Yup. Makes sense. We love it. More of that."

11. Award Season

12. Heiress

13. Power

14. Fancy

15. Crystal

16. Mic Drop

The family name guesses

This is a trick question category, since they literally might have named their children after themselves. BUT! Here were our familial guesses none the less.

17. Carter Carter

18. Tina

19. Queen

20. Gloria

But look at the end of the day, who do we think we are? Beyoncé and JAY-Z or something? WHAT DO WE KNOW?! NOTHING!!!
