Detestable name, whether it is spelled with a C or a K.

I am actually starting to prefer Khloe over Chloe. Not because of Khloe kardashian but because there is something about the k instead of the c which gives it an emphasis. If Chloe is an perfectly acceptable name, than why not Khloe? Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with Chloe, I happen to like the name, but I personally prefer Khloe.

TheSlothPrincess Says:


I actually like this spelled with a K. I think it has a "cool" factor to it that is not too silly or trendy. I have met a couple of Khloes who were born before the Kardashians became popular, so I don't think it will necessarily be associated with them.

Why would anyone name their kid after Khloe Kardashian? seriously.

It looks clunky and unatractive.

Khloe rose and Khloe will fall. Personally, it makes me itch.

I am in complete agreement, this drives me nuts.

Analia Says:


I agree, the only C/K names I can tolerate is Catherine/Katherine, Christina/Kristina or Cara/Kara. But Klaire, Khloe, Kora, not really my taste

other than that, just keep it to C

Guest Says:


I tolerate this on Khloe Kardashian but anyone else I hate this spelling. I generally hate all C to K names (though I have one myself lol).

Theodora_Phoenix Says:


I like Khloe with a K better than Chloe with a C. I in no way "keep up" with the Kardashians. I just saw the K spelling somewhere and liked it.

The power of pop culture these days... It's amazing what one celebrity namesake can do for a baby name.
