BlueLine Ivy is just one of the suggested names Tweeters have given to the "Metro Baby," a child born on the platform of a Green Line train on Washington, D.C. Metro’s L’Enfant Plaza — which literally means "child plaza" in French. Go figure.
"#MetroBaby is the one the Public Transit gods foretold. He will improve service, upgrade infrastructure, and save us all,” tweeted @Hokie_Wartooth.

We're not convinced he’ll save us all, but at least he wasn’t charged an exit fare as Metro Transit Police tweeted, “No exit fare required; kids under 4 ride free” in response to an outburst of sarcastic tweets.
What’s even weirder? Almost exactly one year ago to the day, a woman went into labor on the same line, but was lucky enough to make it to the hospital, sparing her baby from becoming a Twitter trend.
Tweeter Joe Heim looks at this in an appreciative light.
“Just thinking of all the money #metrobaby saved his parents by not being born in hospital. Wish my kids had been as thoughtful,” he tweeted.
An off-duty EMT was able to assist the mother in birthing a healthy baby boy, who — despite suggestions from Tweeters — is named Amir Mason. He weighed in at 8 pounds, 5 ounces.
