All The Kardashian/Jenner Kids Have A Secret Meaning Behind Their Names

Pinkvilla / Us Weekly

Although it may seem like the Kardashian-Jenners are an open book, displaying every aspect of their lives on social media and on their reality show, there are a lot of things that we don't know about them.

We tend to be quick to judge the name of the next Kardashian/Jenner child, but there are actually secret meanings behind each one of their names. Believe me, there's more to this than meets the eye.

Stormi Webster

Stormi's father's name is Travis Jacques Webster, but the couple decided to simply name their one-month-old daughter Stormi Webster. The baby girl's first name sparked a lot of interest on social media, leading people to wonder how the couple decided on that peculiar name.

Hardcore Travis Scott fans came up with an interesting theory that may be the answer we've been all waiting for. The rapper's obsession with butterflies and his hit song, "Butterfly Effect," may have played a big role in the naming of his daughter. The scientific meaning behind the butterfly effect is that the wings of a butterfly can cause a storm half way around the world.

Chicago West

Chicago may sound like a strange name to give a child, but it has a lot of meaning for the little girl's father. It's no secret that Kanye loves Chicago, but he loves the city because he grew up there.

Lyrics like "We some true Chi-Town legends" and "All my n**** from the Chi, that's my family, dog" just go to show the strong bond he has with the city, despite being born in Atlanta.

I definitely wouldn't name my child after my city, but Chicago actually has a nice ring to it.

The hidden behind these next Kardashian names are even more interesting...

Saint West

Neither Kanye or Kim have revealed the real reason they named their son Saint, but sources claim the name had to do with his mother's pregnancy struggles.

The birth of Saint was truly a blessing. After revealing the truth about her difficulty being pregnant with Saint, it's no wonder that Kim had to use a surrogate to have her next child.

North West

We all think Kanye and Kim named their daughter North because it sounded nice alongside her last name West.

It's not something we would put past the couple, but the name actually has a deeper meaning, which was revealed by the four-year-old's grandmother. Kris Jenner explained that North's name means highest power.

Also, when the couple were having lunch with friends discussing their first-born's name, people loved the idea of naming her North: "Kanye and I were having lunch and Pharrell came over to us and said, "˜Oh my God, are you guys really going to call your daughter, "˜North?"˜ That is the best name'," Kim told GQ. "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."

Dream Renée Kardashian

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna's daughter was named Dream because she was a "dream come true." This one was probably a no-brainer, but what does her middle name, Renée, mean?

What many don't know is that Blac Chyna's real name is Angela Renée White, so instead of adopting a hyphenated last name, the little girl shares the same middle name as her mother.

Mason Dash Disick

According to a MTV interview with Kourtney, her first born child was named Mason because the name means the same thing in English and Armenian - stone worker.

Mason's middle name was thought to originate from his mother's clothing shop, but Kourtney revealed that Dash is short for her last name, which was also her father's nickname.

Reign Aston Disick

There seems to have been a lot of thought put into Kourtney's second son's name. It's no secret that Scott Disick loves luxury, but there's a hidden meaning if you take notice of the child's full name.

Reign's initials are RAD, a slang term that originated in the 80s, which means extraordinary or wonderful.

Penelope Scotland Disick

Kourtney and Scott thought the name Penelope was cute, not because it has anything to do with Greek mythology. But what about her middle name Scotland?

A country for a middle name is even stranger than a city, but apparently it was Kris Jenner who suggested the name to the couple. It may have struck a chord with them because it's similar to Scott's name.

I wonder what Khloe will name her daughter! Do you have any guesses?
