Kardashian baby names and their incredible meanings – from Psalm to Stormi

The Kardashian family tree grows taller every year, with momager Kris Jenner now boasting six children, four step-children (from Caitlyn Jenner's side) and TEN grandchildren – her latest, a baby boy born to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West via surrogate, arrived on May 9, 2019.

With Kim and Kanye now the proud parents of four, there's been even more Dashlets added to the klan.

So far, none of the Kardashians, or their partners, have picked especially common names for their youngsters.

What do each of their chosen baby names mean? Let's find out…

Kim Kardashian's children

North West

Birthday: June 15, 2013

Parents: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

In the purest case of life imitating art, North's name actually came from media reports speculating about what Kim and Kanye would call their first-born.

As Kim later told GQ magazine: "It was a rumour in the press and we'd never really considered it seriously, at all, but Kanye and I were having lunch right over there at that table about a year ago and Pharrell [Williams] came over to us and said, 'Oh, my God, are you guys really going to call your daughter North? That is the best name.' I said, 'No we're not, that's just a rumour."

She then had a similar encounter with the editor of US Vogue, which sealed the deal.

"Then a little while later Anna Wintour came over and asked the same thing. She told us, 'North is a genius name.' Kanye and I looked at one another and just laughed. I guess at that point it sort of stuck."

Kim's mum Kris Jenner also spoke about the meaning of the name, telling The View: "The way [Kim] explained it to me was that North means highest power and she says that North is their highest point together."

North is usually shortened to Nori or lengthened Northie when Kim speaks about her daughter.

Saint West

Birthday: December 5, 2015

Parents: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

While many speculated that Kimye would pick 'South' for their second baby, they actually went with something… even more ridiculous. Saint is, of course, has religious connotations and goes with dad Kanye's Yeezus nickname – although there are two schools of thought as to why they picked the moniker.

One is that the proud parents wanted to confirm how much of a "blessing" it was to have a healthy son at the end of Kim's tricky pregnancy; the second is that it pays tribute to her late father.

"One of the reasons Kim and Kanye went with the name Saint is that it goes perfectly with the middle name they chose, ‘Robert’," a source told HollywoodLife at the time.

"Kim has always considered her dad to be a saint. So Saint Robert is ideal."

However, just like his big sister, Saint doesn't have an official middle name.

Chicago West

Birthday: January 15, 2018

Parents: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

Chicago is Kimye's third child and was their first one born to a surrogate mother using their egg and sperm, as Kim suffered from a potentially life-threatening condition called placenta accreta with her previous pregnancies.

She arrived in early 2018 weighing 7lbs 6oz and her proud parents announced her name a few days later on Twitter and Kim's app.

It's thought their daughter is named after Kanye's hometown in a sweet tribute to his late mother. The city takes its name from a native American word for 'wild garlic', which used to grow prolifically in the Chicago area.

Chicago goes mostly by the nickname Chi, pronounced 'shy', her aunt Khloe revealed on Twitter.

Psalm West

Birthday: May 9, 2019

Parents: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

Kim and Kanye once again turned to a surrogate mother to bear their fourth child, Psalm West.

The baby news was revealed on May 10 when Kim tweeted: "He's here and he's perfect. He's also Chicago's twin lol I'm sure he will change a lot but now he looks just like her."

They announced his name a few days later on Twitter, with Kanye adding the sweet message: "Beautiful Mother's Day with the arrival of our fourth child.

"We are blessed beyond measure. We have everything we need."

The name Psalm comes from the Hebrew for 'song' and also means 'sacred poem', after the Book of Psalms in the Bible.

It represents Kanye and Kim's recent spiritual resurgence, amid rumours Kanye is planning to start his own church, and fits in with Psalm's brother Saint.

During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Kim said her babies usually remains nameless for the first days of their life, as she gets a feel for their personality.

Kim said: "I definitely take a family survey. But it's usually after the baby's born or we're trying to figure out what the baby looks like.

"I usually go about three or four days nameless until I feel that it really connects."

This time though, she was leaning towards Robert – after her late lawyer father, Robert Kardashian – but was worried that it wouldn't fit in with her other children's names.

Speaking to Jimmy Kimmel, Kim explained: "I was truthfully thinking about just naming him Rob. My brother.

"But then it's kind of like North, Saint, Chicago, Rob. But I really was feeling that."

Khloe Kardashian's children


Birthday: April 12, 2018

Parents: Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson

It's thought Khloe gave birth to True Thompson at 4am on Thursday 12 April with Tristan by her side.

Khloe went straight into labour after seeing a video of the father of her baby kissing a girl in a nightclub.

She decided to forgive him after several pictures and videos emerged suggesting he had kissed and potentially engaged in sexual relations with other women while she was days away from giving birth.

True is an English baby name that means Loyal.

Taking to Instagram shortly after Khloe announced her baby girl's name, momager Kris Jenner revealed the significance of her daughter's choice.

"I’m so excited to welcome my precious little granddaughter True!" Kris wrote on Instagram.

She added: "FUN FACT… my Grandfather’s name on my Dad’s side was True Otis Houghton… my real Dad’s name was Robert True Houghton… so I am so excited Khloe named her daughter True!!! #lovebug #familytradition #family @true."

Meanwhile, Khloe's sister Kim Kardashian broke her silence over Khloe's labour and said her sister's newborn daughter is "so gorgeous."

In a tweet sent out today, the mum-of-three wrote: "I’m so happy for you! Your baby girl is so beautiful! You are so strong, you made that look so easy! I can’t wait for our baby girls to grow up as best friends the way we are! I’m so happy I was able to return the favor of holding your leg while you pushed LOL."

Pointedly, she made no mention of shamed baby daddy Tristan Thompson. She then added, in a nod to the baby's appearance, "You guys she’s so gorgeous!!!!!"

Kylie Jenner's children


Birthday: February 1, 2018

Parents: Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott

Kylie kept her pregnancy a complete secret, even after her own father Caitlyn Jenner confirmed the news in late 2017.

But she didn't do the same with the name, revealing on Tuesday that she's called her first born Stormi. She is yet to reveal the meaning behind the name, but fans believe it could have been inspired by Doctor Who!

She gave birth in February at the age of 20 and confirmed the happy news with an emotional video documenting her pregnancy, baby shower and labour, which was attended by her mum and sisters.

In a statement accompanying the video, Kylie revealed why she kept the news to herself.

"I'm sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions," she told fans.

"Pregnancy has been the most beautiful, empowering, and life changing experience I've had in my entire life and I'm actually going to miss it."

The emotional video titled To Our Daughter was uploaded to YouTube following the announcement.
