Kylie Jenner has revealed that she changed Stormi’s name at the very last minute without telling anyone.
Eight months after welcoming her first child with Travis Scott, the 21-year-old has opened up about motherhood, and what inspired her baby girl’s unusual name.
During a Halloween-themed makeup tutorial on James Charles’ YouTube channel, Kylie revealed that her daughter was originally going to be named Storm.
“Storm was on there — just Storm. And then I was like, I kinda want ‘-ie’ like me, so then I did Stormie with ‘-ie’,” she explained.
“It was always Stormie with an ‘-ie’. I bought custom things for her that said her name, ‘-ie’. I bought her the blocks, ‘-ie.’ I didn’t fully choose her name, I wanted to have a week of just me and her to see if I wanted to change it.”
“I had one other name in mind, but Stormi always felt like her name from when she was in the womb. It’s almost like she chose her name.”
“When they called me from the birth certificate office, and I was finalising the name, they were like ‘how do you want to spell it?'” Kylie said.
“And I was like S-T-O-R-M-I, and they were like ‘you sure?’ and I’m like ‘yeah, just an i.’ Literally right then and there I just changed it to an ‘i.’ Then I hung up the phone and I was like ‘damn, guess that’s her name.'”
“Then I called Travis, and I was like, ‘I didn’t put and ‘e’ I just did it with an ‘i’.’ And he said, ‘That’s cool.'”
