Will it be a K Name for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's Baby?
Big baby naming rumors alert! Since the announcement last week that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are expecting a baby, blogs, news outlets and social media have been abuzz with speculation about what they will name the little one. And maybe even a bigger question - will it begin with a K?
As some have suggested, we don't think "Kimye" will be making the list. Although celebrities are notoriously/stereotypically self-involved, this feels a little excessive (though let's not forget George Foreman, who has five sons named George). We think Kim and Kanye will pick something a little more original.
Although Kim's sister Kourtney strayed from the "K" naming tradition with her children, Mason Dash and Penelope Scotland, and Khloe has already ruled the tradition out, Kim might be different. With Kanye also baring a K-name, it seems more likely they will stick with the Kardashian family tradition than either Kourtney or Khloe.
We took a look at a few names based on our Expert NameFinder tool on BabyNameWizard.com, looking for names that are more likely to be uncommon and creative, but still begin with K. Here are our favorites:
- Kalix - For a boy, the x at the end gives it a little something extra, and according to Namipedia, Calix means "very handsome" in Greek.
- Kullen - Since the Kardashians are trendsetters, it might be a wise move to jump on an already rising trend with a respelling of the name Cullen, which is on the rise thanks to the Twilight series.
- Kameron or Karsyn - Cameron and Carson were traditionally boys names, now popular girls names and a respelling could give them a nice boost.
- Kashmir - A place name and a play on a decadent sounding word seems fitting for the couple.
- Kalifornia - We admit we're not the first to come up with this one, but since place names are on the rise and Kim is from California, it doesn't seem too far fetched.
What do you think of our suggestions? What do you think Kim and Kanye will name their baby? Do you think they will stick with the K naming tradition?
