UPDATE 8: International Business Times has more on the meaning of the name: Blue Ivy Carter:
First, the name “Blue” is supposedly a tribute to Jay-Z, whose birth name is Shawn Carter. His franchise albums have been called “Blueprint.” Blue contains four letters, and Beyonce has a “love for the number four.” Blue was also the color used in Ancient Egypt to represent the heavens. It symbolizes inspiration, sincerity and spirituality.
The name “Ivy” comes from the plant that symbolizes eternity. Greek and Roman societies revered the ivy for its longevity and hardiness, according to information from GlobalGrind. It has represented eternal life in numerous religions
