Kourtney Kardashian Gives Birth and Reveals Her Son's Royal Name

No matter what is or isn't going on in Kourtney Kardashian's relationship with Scott Disick, the father of her three children, one thing is undeniable: she is completely in love -- with her newborn son, who is barely a week old. The oldest Kardashian sister, who gave birth on Dec. 14, which was the same day as her 5-year-old son Mason's birthday, recently introduced the world to her newest addition -- and revealed the sweet name she and Scott chose for their baby boy.

Kourt posted the photo above on her Instagram with the caption, "Madly in love with my little Reign Aston Disick."

Awww, little Reign Aston! Sure, we wish we had a photo of his gorgeous face, but how adorable is this image? Maybe mama bear is still feeling too protective to share a more candid photo of her baby, and who can blame her? Before too long, he'll be in the spotlight almost as much as North West so she should cherish these few private moments she will get to hibernate with him and her other children, including 2-year-old cutie pie Penelope. 

Anyway, back to the interesting name they chose. So, we know she felt "stuck" trying to find the perfect name and decided to wait until she met her son to come up with one. Considering how the baby's father is a Lord and all, giving him a moniker that one associates with royalty makes perfect sense, doesn't it? His middle name, Aston, could have two meanings: "east town or ash tree settlement" or -- what I'm betting the couple had in mind -- the Aston Martin, an English sports car made famous by James Bond.

I have to admit, I didn't catch this at first, but my coworker pointed out that Kourtney's baby's initials are RAD.

What do you think of the name Reign Aston?

Compared to Mason and Penelope, Reign is pretty lame and somewhat tacky. His father already thinks he's an aristocrat and has his head up in the air so this royal word name would suit his huge ego. There is also a fantasy TV show called "Reign" loosely based on Mary Queen of Scots.

I'd have to agree with Anon 2:05. Reign is pretty lame by comparison to their older kids. They went super trendy then quirky classic, now, Hollywood crazy name. Disappointing.

Reign as a word-turned-name...an example of how the spelling totally twists the perception of the name. Rain(e) would have been cool, though it doesn't fit with Mason or Penelope stylewise.

Aston would have been a better fit, Aston Reign is interesting and puts the crazy in the middle (though it would have looked like they meant to go with Ashton and dropped a crucial letter).

Good for them for being brave, if that's what you'd call it, in picking this name. Unfortunately, it just looks like Kourtney was trying to go one step further than when Kim named her little girl North.

I agree with these earlier posters. It's overly pretentious and does not go with their older children's names at all. (Katia's call was perfect...Mason being "super trendy," and Penelope "quirky classic," now it's just "Hollywood crazy"!) Rain would have been so much better, though also a stretch.

North is wholly unflattering for a girl (at least they might have gone with Knorth, to make it a tiny bit special, and perhaps slightly less obvious of a joke, though it wouldn't have been too much better), and it does seem like the Disicks have tried to out-weird her.

Aston would have been a lovely choice (and gone well with his siblings'); I only hope they will call him that and perhaps just put Reign in front in order to make the RAD initials.

I believe a baby's name reveals one's true character...enough said.

The character of the naming parent, that is.
