Kylie Jenner Reveals The Name She Almost Gave Stormi

Kylie Jenner - Keeping Up With The Kardashians

Everyone has a different style when it comes to naming their children. It's not exactly something you can do lightly. Or, at least, not something you should do lightly. It's the name that will go on their birth certificate, and the identity they will go by in their day to day lives (if they don't change their name). It is their calling card, the syllables that form their identification. Some people use family lineage, other people name their children after people they know and/or love. When it comes to Kylie Jenner, she picked the name Stormi. And while that's a distinctive name, it wasn't the only one she had in mind, apparently. As the young billionaire recently explained, she had another name she considered leading up to the child's birth.

One name I will tell you guys, because I don't think I'm ever going to name my daughter this (another daughter), but I wanted to name her Rose.

The confession was made to Kylie Jenner's followers in an Instagram Live video, as it was reported by E! News. It should be noted that Rose wasn't the only other name on the table for the make-up company owner and Travis Scott, but she didn't want to reveal the other options at this time, since she might possibly "use" one of those proposed names "one day." But she let the name Rose slip because, even though she thinks it's a lovely name, Jenner doesn't believe the day will come when she decides to give a daughter that name. It's not clear why it is off the table, though.

Additionally, Kylie Jenner admits she doesn't know why exactly she was so taken by the name Rose, but she really likes it. Maybe she's a really big fan of the high-grossing historical romance Titanic? That would be an outsider's best guess. With that, Jenner gave a special "shout-out" to everyone who shared that very name.

As Kylie Jenner previously explained, the name Stormi came to the entrepreneur and her partner, Travis Scott, throughout the months leading up to the baby's birth. They don't know exactly how it came to be, but it "stuck." It was something that felt right to them. While there are other names that Kylie might've preferred instead in the big decision-making process — like the name mentioned above, for instance — the celebrity mom felt Stormi ultimately "picked her own name." And that settled it.

There are a wealth of options when it comes to naming your child. And it can be hard to pick among the many, many, many possibilities that are out there. You certainly aren't limited in your options. While Stormi isn't your typical baby name, and it was perhaps not Kylie Jenner's first choice, but the one that felt right to the young mom. And that's the one she went with. But if she decides to have another child, it sounds like she does have a variety of options in her mind.
