Category: Kimye baby name
Kim and Kanye’s baby son was born this morning, and while lots of joke baby names have been thrown about, from Easton to South to Yeezus, the new parents have confessed that they are seriously stumped on finding a good name.
Winter or Windsor, shortened to Win – We are super-excited about this one. We don’t know whether we prefer Winter or Windsor as a full name, with Winter connecting to the baby’s December birthday and Windsor referring to the British royals that Kim admires. Both lead to the undeniably perfect nickname Win, an upbeat word name that’s less jokey than another directional name and perfect for the son of the winning couple. PLUS the alliterative W beginning makes for a powerful full name: It echoes Kim’s KK initials without mimicking them.
We are expecting a girl in December. We thought we had the perfect name picked out for our little darling: Easton Brennan LastName. We loved that Easton is not expected for a girl and Brennan is my best friend’s last name. Our son Nash Anderson‘s middle name is my husband’s last name.
Then Kim and Kanye have to go and get pregnant! It’s rumored their boy will be named Easton and I just can’t get over it! Our kids will be born at similar times and I don’t want announce that my new baby has the same name as this celebrity babe.
The problem is we can’t agree on other names! I like Vivi, but it’s so common.
Help! I want something as fun and unique as Nash!
The Name Sage replies:
Although that won’t stop anyone from continuing to make them for the rest of little North West’s life, the obvious problem with the otherwise-attractive name. Which begs the question: Did Kim and Kanye choose the name despite or because of its punniness? We’re betting the Kim resisted choosing a name that was inherently a joke, but Kanye refused to alter course.
North West had surfaced months ago as Kanye’s name of choice but was pooh-poohed as just another absurd rumor. And Kim herself, in a Jay Leno interview in March, declared that North was out of the question – but added that she did kind of like Easton. And she also said that they weren’t tied to a K name, that their list was in fact half K and half not.
lose to midnight after noon, the end middle of Day 2 3 or maybe we can call this Day 3 4 of the Kim and Kanye Baby Name Watch. You know they’re not going to announce the name tonight right this minute, because most sane journalists are already asleep out to lunch.
In case you’ve been living on Jupiter for the past decade, the Kardashian family is famous partly because they all — or almost all — have names that start with the letter K: Mom Kris, daughters Kim and Khloe and Kourtney and Kendall and Kylie. They even marry men whose names start with K: Kim was married to basketball player Kris Humphries and is now with Kanye.
Elisabeth Wilborn over at You Can’t Call It It thinks the newborn baby’s name might be Klementine Star, based on the fact that the domains klementinewest.com and klementinestarwest.com had been registered. Other sources are saying the name will be Kai Georgia Donda.
Donald Trump Jr. has a daughter named Kai, while Ethan Hawke has a little Clementine. Here’s a list of all the recent celebrity baby names that start with K, from Brad and Angelina‘s Knox to Kevin James‘ Kannon, Gwen Stefani‘s Kingston to Padma Lakshmi‘s Krishna.
Congrats to Kim and Kanye on the arrival of their daughter! There’s been no name announcement as of Sunday night. Is the couple still deciding, or have they realized that delaying the name announcement can generate twice the headlines?
Let’s give the famous duo the benefit of the doubt and assume that they’re still deliberating. If Kimye is stumped, they’re not the first parents to find themselves uncertain about The Name.
Could they be stuck because they’ve limited themselves to K names? Or have they fallen for a choice that doesn’t start with K and fret that breaking with the family tradition might cause problems?
While we wait to learn the name of the newest member of the Kardashian family, let’s check out the other baby names in the news this week:
Poppy – Speaking of delayed baby name announcements, Stephen Moyer finally revealed the names of his twins with Anna Paquin. Daughter Poppy’s name is popular throughout much of the English-speaking world, but rare in English. It’s also a nice connection to Lilac, Stephen’s daughter from a previous relationship.
