Kourtney Kardashian Explains Son Reign’s Name

The Kardashian family is good at quite a few things like, um, contouring their makeup and…uh…selfies. But naming babies may not be one of them. While some K-Dash offspring have been given perfectly acceptable monickers (like Mason and Penelope) others, like poor North West The Person and now Kourtney Kardashian’s new son, Reign Aston Disick, weren’t so lucky.





So Kourt is trying to shed some light on why she gave her sweet baby such pretentious title.

“I’m never certain [with names] until they’re born,” she told People, but revealed that Reign was among her favorites since she was first pregnant with Mason.

“Then with Penelope, I had it on the list but spelled R-A-I-N.”

She was still keen on the name this time around, especially since she thought she was having another girl.

“Once I found out I was having a boy, we just changed the spelling again,” she said.

Honestly, I would’ve preferred her son to be named Rain (which has some hippie-ish charm, I guess) over Reign, which is just so eye-roll in its attempt to sound regal and important. If he doesn’t end up marrying a countess or founding an airline or something, his life will be a complete humiliation.
