‘Poor child’ Kylie Jenner splits fans’ opinion with baby name choice

Kylie Jenner has revealed the baby name she picked for the little girl she welcomed last week, but fans have mixed opinions about the moniker.

The reality TV star revealed on Sunday that she’d welcomed her first child with boyfriend Travis Scott, after months of speculation about her pregnancy.

Two days after the big announcement, Kylie took to Instagram again to share with fans the baby name she picked for her little one – Stormi.

Alongside an adorable picture of her baby girl with her hand wrapped around Kylie’s finger, she wrote: ‘stormi webster 👼🏽’.

While he goes by the name of Travis Scott – his stage name – Stormi’s dad is actually named Jacques Webster, which is how the little one got her last name.

Kylie’s famous family tend to go for unusual baby names, and her baby girl joins cousins North, Reign, Saint, Chicago and Dream.

Fans had a lot to say about the name she picked, with some criticising her for picking a ‘crazy’ moniker.

‘Celebrities and their crazy bby names ! The bby isn’t a pet to be named that !!!! poor child 😅’, one said, while a second wrote: ‘Kylie Jenner named her damn kid Stormi. This family really ain’t with normal names eh?’

A third commented: ‘Kardashian/Jenner family gatherings will sound like a weather report when wrangling the kids. Is it Stormi? Naw it’s just Reign Over by North Chicago.’

Another wrote: ‘@KylieJenner named her baby #Stormi. I once had a Beanie Baby with the same exact name.’

However, others actually said they liked the name Stormi and defended her choice, saying it’s a ‘normal’ name.

One said: ‘@KylieJenner named her baby Stormi 😭 that’s so cute!!!’, while another wrote: ‘I think Stormi is my new favourite name. @KylieJenner #CongratsKylie #KylieJenner ❤️’.

‘Kylie Jenner named her baby Stormi! So freaken cute and Its a NORMAL name!’, someone else added.

And actually the name might not be that uncommon – The Sun reports that it has old English origins, and that there are over 6,000 people named Stormi around the world.

The publication also found a baby name blog that says the meaning behind the name is a ‘free hearted spirit who cares about all’, and who ‘trusts only a few and has the biggest heart’.
