From North to Chicago, the Kardashian clan has surprised their fans by choosing quirky names for their babies.
On Tuesday, the 20-year-old reality TV star and entrepreneur posted a picture on her Instagram holding her daughter’s tiny hands and introducing her to the world with the caption “Stormi.” Her elder sister Kim, who recently had a baby daughter she named Chicago via a surrogate, followed up with an emoji of a storm cloud emoji, while her mother Kris was beaming with happiness while posting her message on Twitter.
But her choice has now caused a media firestorm. While many have approved of her choice, half-jokingly sometimes, some have openly criticized her sense of naming.
i'm hoping Stormi is just the nickname and the kid's real name is Category Four Hurricane

Like I'm honestly just very underwhelmed with Stormi & after the care with which she named each of her lipsticks I expected better

American entrepreneur and author Pamela Redmond Satran had this to say about Kylie’s choice,
“Stormi feels like a name from film noir. It also has a dark meaning and is often used to describe rocky relationships or troubled moods. It doesn’t carry as positive a legacy, unlike the names Dream or Saint.”
