Category: Kardashian baby names
By Abby Sandel
Back in 2007, a little reality show called Keeping Up with the Kardashians debuted on the E! channel.
Nearly a decade later – yes, it’s been that long – we’re still following the family’s foibles, from the scandalous to the mundane.
Along the way, matriarch Kris Jenner has become a grandmother to six. The most recent arrival is Dream Renee, daughter of Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna. Every pregnancy and birth has been detailed on the family’s shows and in the press, meaning that you probably recognize the next generation’s names, even if you’re not keeping up with the family.
We can’t explain it, but there’s an intensity to the Kardashian family baby name watch that’s undeniable. It’s as if we hope the names will be trend-setting, dramatic, extravagant, and daring. Without fail, the family has delivered.
I may be the only American never to have seen an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and I aim to keep it that way. My fascination with the reality TV family is totally name-based: The K-named klan has made the oddly-spelled Khloe one of the fastest rising girls’ names of recent years and inspired a legion of new-fangled K names.
Now, in the latest Kardashian-related baby name news, sister Kim and her fiancé Kris say they’re “reserving” several K names in advance of their upcoming nuptials and theoretical pregnancy. How many K names K & K get to cordon (kordon?) off is not (knot?: sorry, it’s irresistible) known, but we at Knameberry have some suggestions.
While Kate may be the name of the year, the new Duchess of Cambridge seems to be going in the opposite direction from the Kardashians and reverting to her original C name, Catherine. Come to think of it, she may be doing this to distance herself from the Kardashians.
We have the feeling that Kate and other classic K names – Karen, Kenneth, Kevin, Kirsten – probably aren’t Kim and Kris’s thing anyway. We see them going for one of the super popular new K names, here in order of how fast they’re rising.
