Agreed, though I would use it for a girl, not a boy. And I like it mostly as a middle.

I am a big fan of Kourtney Kardashian's name choices for her children. I love the name Reign for a boy, it sounds strong and prestigious. I think however she should have used his middle name, Aston as the first name. She should have named her kids Mason, Penelope and Aston as first names and used Reign as his middle name. Either way I love all her name choices better than Dream, North West, Saint, Royalty, Princess etc

I only like this for a middle name. I don't think of the Kardashians when I see this name. I think it could be a cool middle name. A lot of celebrities use this name which is fine... I don't think it's easy for a child Or an adult to pull this name off as a first name.

I didn't think a name could be both pretentious and trashy... until now.

Hideous beyond measure.

flowercait Says:


Mason, Penelope and Reign really? Not a fan of it and it doesn't go with his siblings names, Aston would have fitted better.

Oops my comment went through twice.

Guest Says:


Reign is a word related to royalty. I don't think it's directly related to Regan but Regan means "little king" so it could be! 😀

minxtruck Says:


Is Reign really a variation of Regan? Has anyone got another source for this? Regan is a family name so I'd be interested to know.

Another one of my favorites RUINED by the Kardashians 😭

KatieSpills Says:


It will be interesting to see if this gets a boost from the Kardashians. It seems like a very difficult name to pull off. In addition to the almost royal implications of the meaning, he will also have to deal with spelling it because I think most would hear it as, Rain.
