Did Kylie Jenner just hint she doesn’t like Stormi’s name…?

Bit awkward

The Kardashians aren't famed for their traditional baby names, so we weren't surprised at all when Kylie Jenner announced she'd named her daughter Stormi earlier this year.

Kylie's now opened up about the reasoning behind the choice of name, and hinted that she's not a huge fan of it. Which is a bit odd.

Speaking to her sister Kim Kardashian for ES magazine, she said: "I really don’t know how we thought of Storm. Her dad insisted it was him, but I feel like it was me. And that kind of just stuck with us. And then I didn’t really like just Storm — I didn’t feel like that was her name.

"So then it became Stormi. And it just stuck. I feel like there were a lot of other names that I might have even liked better to be honest, but I feel like Stormi picked her own name, like it was just her name."

Kylie just shared an adorable new snap of Stormi to celebrate her three month birthday.

She captioned the snap: "my pretty girl is 3 months old today ✨", and we cannot cope with how adorable she is.

Kylie announced the birth of Stormi back in February after a secret pregnancy.

She wrote on Instagram: "I'm sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions. I understand you're used to me bringing you along on all my journeys. My pregnancy was one I chose not to do in front of the world. I knew for myself I needed to prepare for this role of a lifetime in the most positive, stress free, and healthy way I knew how. there was no gotcha moment, no big paid reveal i had planned. I knew my baby would feel every stress and every emotion so I chose to do it this way for my little life and our happiness."

She continued: "Pregnancy has been the most beautiful, empowering, and like changing experience I've had in my entire life and I'm actually going to miss it. I appreciate my friends and especially my family for helping me make this special moment as private as we could. My beautiful and healthy baby girl arrived February 1st and I just couldn't wait to share this blessing. I've never felt love and happiness like this I could burst! Thank you for understanding."
