Is There A Reason Why All the Kardashians’ Names Start with K?

Wendy Stokesby:


Kris Jenner gave birth to five Jenner-Kardashian girls– Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, Kendall, and Kylie. The world has seen them grow and face many challenges in one of the most famous reality shows, Keeping up with the Kardashians. However, everyone wonders why all their names start with K.

Many assume that it is just a trend that Kris started, but cannot confirm if it’s true. People also want to know why the girls haven’t followed the trend with their own children.


Kris didn’t start the trend

Kris Jenner wasn’t the one initiating the tradition. In fact, it was her mother, Mary Jo Campbell who started it. After giving birth to Kris (whose real name is Kristen) she had another daughter who she named Karen. That is how the K names started, and Kris simply followed it with her daughters.

Kris’ sister also named her daughters with “K” names- Kourtni, Kara and Krista. Meanwhile, besides Kendall who doesn’t have children yet, all four of Kris’ daughters named their kids unique names that don’t start with “K”, so we must wonder what is the reason for breaking the tradition.

Kim thinks it might be construed as racist

Kim Kardashian is married to Kanye West, and they have three children together. When she was asked why she didn’t pick “K” names for them, she said that it could be misconstrued by the media in some form to be “KKK,” and that indeed wasn’t something they wanted.

Kourtney didn’t explain the reason why

Kourtney didn’t follow the trend with any of her three children. She had them with her ex-husband, Scott Disick. They were married from 2006 to 2015, and their kids’ names are Mason (born 2009), Penelope (born 2012) and Reign (born 2014).

Kylie didn’t even consider it as an option

Kylie didn’t say exactly why she didn’t follow the family tradition, but she mentioned that the original name she and her boyfriend, Travis Scott picked was Storm. However, she decided that it wasn’t right and changed it to Stormi.



Khloe kept a different tradition

Khloe didn’t say why she didn’t choose a “K” name for her only daughter True (born 2018), but she and her sisters Kim and Kylie have a different tradition– none of their children have middle names.

Kendall might not have children
