In a new interview, with Rap Radar, Jay-Z has revealed exactly why those names were chosen for his baby son and daughter.

'Rumi is our favourite poet, so it was for our daughter,' he told the mag. 

This name was chosen in reference to 13th century Persian poet Maulana Jalaluddin Rumi.

However, Sir's name came about in a pretty different manner.

'Sir was like, man, come out the gate.'
