Kimye Kname Kraziness

It’s close 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.

We’ll find out the name of the newborn daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West in the morning by tomorrow, according to “informed sources.”  But it’s said to start with the tradtional Kardashian K.

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 JamesKannon, Gwen Stefani‘s Kingston to Padma Lakshmi‘s Krishna.

It’s possible, of course, that Kim and Kanye have not decided on the name yet and the new parents are still debating their options.  In that case, we have some ideas for them:

Kadence, Kalliope or Kalypso — Musical theme!  Three rhythmic names that nod to Daddy’s profession.

Kadonda — Okay, we made this one up, but we kinda like it!  It combines the K beginning with Kanye‘s mother’s name Donda.  You could also go Kadashia, Dasha for short — cute, right?

Kalindi – This musical Hindi name means “sun” and refers to one of the sacred rivers of India.  Kalinda is another variation.

Kasiani — This intriguing Greek saint’s name has a musical theme: The Hymn of Kasiani is traditionally sung on Easter week and is associated with (ahem) fallen women.

Kassia — Purists that we are, we might have preferred to spell this cinnamon-scented name Cassia, but we love either version.  The female variation on the ancient Roman Cassius or the saint’s name Cassian.

Kelilah — A Hebrew name that means crown and is a great substitute for the trendier Delilah.

Keziah – The name of one of the three daughters of the biblical JobKeziah is a lovely name.  Her sister Keturah is beautiful too.

Kinga — As King is a popular name for starbaby boys, why not Kinga for a girl?  There is a legendary Polish princess Kinga.

Kirrily — The stylish Australian name sounds both cheery and exotic here.

name necklaceKrista — With Kanye‘s new album called Yeezus, this choice makes sense — though Kim‘s better divorce from Kris probably trumps an honorific for her mom.

Ugh, they’re all awful names.

I’m sure whatever name they choose, it will be completely ridiculous. So my guess is…Kaleidoscope! Or possibly Kashmere (because, you know, the parents are so klassy).

Yeah, Kaleidoscope and Kashmere are laugh-out-loud funny. I guess Karver or Kingslee (or, worse yet, Kyngsli). Kadonda is just hilarious. I do like your suggestions though I don’t know if they’ll choose to honor any biblical characters or Greek saints with their name choice. But you never know.

It’s completely ridiculous that one baby is generating this much hype.

I think it will be Kamelia!

Is it terribly cynical of me to mention that Kanye’s new album debuts on June 18th? But I’m sure they’re not after any extra publicity. Yeah, right…

Please let it not be Klementine… I’m very keen on Clementine!

Most K names are awful, these ones included.

Pam Says:

June 18th, 2013 at 8:18 am

I’m laughing at all the comments but I must respectfully disagree that all K names are awful. I sincerely love many of these !

I think Kiya would be pretty, but I doubt they’d go fir a pretty understated name like that.

If it is indeed Klementine, I think a little part of me might actually die.

mrs_anton_yelchin1990 Says:

I think it will be Kween. As in “queen”. It’s totally obnoxious like they are.

MrsTaylor Says:

June 18th, 2013 at 8:59 am

I hope its not Klementine, shes on my short list (Clementine). Maybe they will be reasonable and use Kaia or Kallista. But I have a feeling it will be something horrible/outrageous, like Krescendo, or Kapriccio.

That being said maybe Klementine isn’t that bad 🙂

My personal vote for them is:

Kimana Mercy

I am truly annoyed and a little upset that my precious Clementine may become a “K” Kardashian name!

We have an office poll and I voted for Kassiopeia.
(Figured it went well with the K- theme and cousin Penelope).

I love Kalindi, Kasiani, Kassia, Keziah, and Kirrily. Kaia would also be nice. I think many of these are great k names. I hope they don’t choose something dumb!

vitamom3 Says:

My guess is Konda. Honors his late mother, Donda and just slaps a K on the beginning. I really hope I’m wrong!!

June 18th, 2013 at 11:57 am

I’ve been betting on Kassia, Kora or Karly and I would love to be right!

I just heard that some of their non k choices are north and Easton. No joke.

I really hate all K names. Ugh. I don’t mind Clementine or Cassia, but Klementine and Kassia seem awful to me. Sorry. I don’t actually mind Keziah, actually. That would be a really nice name for their daughter! But I doubt they’re going in that direction. Oh, well. We’ll find out eventually.

Kalindi is really sweet, and I like Kai.

I’ve never liked Clementine, but with a K? K’mon!

laurbails Says:

June 18th, 2013 at 3:13 pm

My bet is Kleo.

kyemsma Says:

June 18th, 2013 at 3:15 pm

I say Kallista, Kelsey or Kassondra .
By the way, not all K names are bad – my son’s name starts with a K.

lizgingermitch Says:

June 18th, 2013 at 4:32 pm

Aw, I like K names. All of the ones on the list are horrifying, but something like Katharine, Keira, or Kelsey would be nice and classy.

Pam Says:

June 18th, 2013 at 4:34 pm

Katharine is wonderful, but I will personally go without cookies for a month if they name the baby Katharine!

dannyva Says:

June 18th, 2013 at 6:01 pm

I could see them going with Kenya (same letters as Kanye). We’ll see…

sarahmezz Says:

A nurse at the hospital has revealed the baby’s name is Kaidence Donda West. Not the worst name, but certainly not the best. Cadence is sweet; Kaidence is less sweet.

I’ve been laughing ever since, “Kname.” This is an awful (though funny) entry in the annals of the Nameberry blog. Seriously though, Kirrily is adorable.

June 18th, 2013 at 10:32 pm

What about Kerensa/Kerenza?

wgcathyhillary Says:

June 18th, 2013 at 11:09 pm

The only K names I really like are Katherine (and Katherine nicknames Kate, Kathy etc) and Kara. C is my favorite letter for names so it’s not the sound, I think K just makes things look trendy.

charliedog99 Says:

June 19th, 2013 at 12:46 am

I’m a Katharine and I have mixed feelings about them choosing my name (yes, I own it). It’s a great name and it would serve this child well. On the other hand, I don’t want people to think it’s a Kardashianized version of Katherine/Catherine/etc. This spelling is rare enough and I am constantly correcting people and getting mail addressed to Katherine. Now if Duchess Catherine wants to go with Katharine, well have at it Katie!!

June 19th, 2013 at 5:14 am

All things considered, if I had to name their babe I would call her Katniss…I think It’s kool enough to be a Kimye name but its still got Klass 🙂 I really love Katniss it is infact a bit of a gp name for me!!

josiek Says:

June 19th, 2013 at 9:48 am

what about Kateri or Katiri? i think it is unique and love that it is a saint’s name. lots of cute nicknames too – kat, kati, tiri, riri . . . that said, Katniss is a gp for me too, fluzie. love simple Kai too.

And the name is… North!
