Pop Culture References for the name Khloe


JulieSue Says:


I feel like Chloe is much classier than Khloe. Even though they are pronounced the same Khloe just feels harsher to me.

Kaylon O. Centres Says:


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

Thepandaprincess223 Says:


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.

indiefendi2 Says:


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

gummybear0724 Says:


It looks clunky and unatractive.

lesliemarion Says:


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

jordalini Says:


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.

CocoWhite Says:


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