When choosing a name for your child, you may be considering a number of factors, including family history, what best matches your personality (or your child’s if you pick a name after the birth, or trending names. Another good place to look for baby name inspiration is reality TV, because our favorite reality TV stars have chosen some truly beautiful, unique, and interesting baby names for their little ones.
Many reality TV stars choose unique and often untrendy names. (They start to trend after reality TV stars reveal their name choices, duh!) We’ve rounded some of our favorites below, and chances are they’ll be trending soon — if they aren’t already.
Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott named their almost-two-year-old daughter Stormi, which, according to nameberry.com, may have been a risky move. According to them, “if naming your child Storm or Stormy is asking for trouble, naming her Stormi is asking for trouble of several different kinds.” With that being said, after Jenner chose the name, it has been gaining in popularity.
Khloé Kardashian and Forest Whitaker both named their daughters True, which is described as “inspirational and aspirational.”
A popular Italian name, it’s no surprise that Snooki, who once said she wanted “guido” babies, chose the moniker for her daughter. Giovanna is the Italian equivalent to Jane and means “The Lord is Gracious.”
Lauren Conrad of The Hills chose William/Liam for her first son’s name and she’s not the only one. It was the most popular name in 2018 for boys, according to nameberry.com. The Irish short form of William, it means “resolute protection.”

Riley, which can be a boy’s or girl’s name, was chosen by Ali Fedotowsky (The Bachelorette) and Kevin Manno (The Seven) for their first child, a girl. It was the 28th most popular girl’s name in 2018 and means “courageous.”
Chip and Joanna Gaines named their youngest son Crew, which according to The Bump means “chariot.” Oh Baby Names also notes that it’s a Welsh surname based on Crewe, a town near the border of England and Wales.
Amy Duggar and Dillon King just welcomed their baby boy, whom they named Daxton Ryan. The name means “warrior who conquers great obstacles.”
Vicki Gunvalson, the OG of the OC, named her eldest Briana, which comes from the Old Celtic word “brigh” and means noble, strong and virtuous. It’s the female version of “Brian.”
When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
