Kylie recently filmed a video with YouTube beauty vlogger James Charles. While giving her a Halloween beat with her new Kylie Cosmetics Halloween Collection, James asked her how Stormi’s name came to be.
“Travis thinks he thought of Stormi, but it was me,” Kylie said. “I remember the whole thing, but he swears he made her name up, I was just looking at nature names, like weather and like earth inspired.”
“Storm was on there, just Storm. I was kind of like ‘oh I want an -ie like me,’ so then I did Stormie with an -ie,” Kylie continued. “It was always Stormie with an -ie. I bought custom things for her that said her name with -ie and the blocks with Stormie -ie.”
Even though Kylie seemed to have been deadset on Stormie she still wanted to give the name some time before officially choosing it.
“I wanted to have a week of just me and her to see if I wanted to change it because I had one other name in mind, but Stormi always felt like her name even in the womb,” the new mom told James. “It’s almost like she chose her name. So then when they called me from the birth certificate office and I was finalizing the name. They were like, ‘How do you want to spell it?’ I was like ‘S-T-O-R-M-I’ and they were like ‘Are you sure?’ and I was like ‘Yeah, just an -i.’ Literally, right then and there I changed it to an -i.”
She went on to say she called Travis right after and told him she changed the spelling of Stormi’s name. He was super chill about the name change.
So that’s how Stormi’s name was born! Watch the full clip below.
