    North, Saint, Dream, Chicago, and now Stormi. The KarJenner family has a history of coming up with very unconventional names for their children, but Kylie naming her daughter Stormi takes the cake.

    After months of avoiding rumors of her pregnancy, Kylie finally confirmed the birth of her daughter. Her first picture of her daughter posted on her Instagram has become the most liked picture on Instagram, with over 16 million likes. The caption of the picture revealed the baby’s name as Stormi Webster.

    Stormi sounds like a great name for a dog, or a fantastic way to describe weather, but it is a strange name for a child. However, Kylie and the rest of her family are not the only celebrities to give their children unusual names. Other celebrities’ children including Apple, daughter of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin, and Blue Ivy, daughter of Béyonce and Jay Z, have been subject to these unconventional names.

   “I think that it is ok if there is a good reason why they are naming their kid the way they are,” Greta Haydock, freshman, said.

    One possible reason behind the strange names that celebrities give their children is that people are more likely to remember an unusual name than an ordinary one.

    “I think they are just doing it for attention,” Elyse Heiser, freshman, said.

    Names that bring more attention to the parents may bring unwanted attention to the children. When celebrities like Jamie Oliver give names like Buddy Bear Maurice, Petal Blossom Rainbow, and Daisy Boo Pamela, they are setting them up to be made fun of or bullied as children.

    With a name like Stormi, it is easy to see that Kylie Jenner and other celebrity parents have creative minds, and it will be interesting to see what names they will come up with next, as long as they don’t go too far.
