Beyonce is calling her daughter a "cultural icon" in court documents in a legal battle over the trademark of her daughter's famous name.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Beyonce desperately wants the trademark her daughter's name but Wendy Morales, owner of a wedding planning business is already using a similar name, "Blue Ivy."

According to The Blast, Morales wants Beyonce's request for a trademark to be denied and says that allowing her to use her daughter's name for business purposes would be confusing to the public.

In response, Beyonce says that Morales' claim that "that consumers are likely to be confused between a boutique wedding event planning business and Blue Ivy Carter, the daughter of two of the most famous performers in the world, is frivolous and should be refused in its entirety." 

The global superstar, in her papers, then reminded the court that the trademark application is for "Blue Ivy Carter" and not for "Blue Ivy," the name currently being used by the business owner. 

"Blue Ivy Carter is a cultural icon who has been described as a 'mini style star,'" Bey says of her daughter.

"Most significantly, Blue Ivy Carter has achieved a significant amount of fame, particularly at such a young age. She also has a noted and well-chronicled interest in fashion. Given these factors, Blue Ivy Carter is capable of and interested in becoming the face of a brand. For this reason, the factual context demonstrates that BGK filed the Application with the intent to build a brand around Blue Ivy Carter and her public reputation and renown."

Should Bey be able to trademark her daughter's name? We think so.
