The Miss FQ team bid in the baby name battle for Khloe Kardashian and NBA star boyfriend Tristan Thompson’s pending arrival.

The pregnancy came by surprise following Khloe’s journey of infertility issues made public on reality TV show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, when married to ex-husband Lamar Odom.

The tallest and arguably most liked sister in the Kardashian-Jenner clan announced on December 21, 2017 via Instagram that she and Tristan were expecting, citing the news as her ‘greatest dream realised’.

Having already embraced parenthood, siblings Kourtney (38), Kim (37), and Rob (30) have provided Khloe with ample nieces and nephews to play house with, giving viewers more than enough evidence to show how apt Khloe is to raise young children. And not to mention how sweet Tristan is to Khloe #MatchMadeInHeaven

In anticipation of baby-koko’s arrival, Miss FQ joins the internet in placing predictions for the baby’s name below…

For a girl

Kween Koko 

“This baby is going to be reality-star royalty before it even leaves the womb, why not name accordingly?”

– Danielle Clausen, fashion editor

Kali Girl

“The Kardashians are the ultimate Cali girls — insert kwirky spelling and kase klosed. But also, Kali is the Hindu goddess of time, change, destruction and empowerment. Which, I’m pretty sure is the unofficial tagline of Revenge Body with Khloe Kardashian, non?”

– Phoebe Watt, associate editor

Kendra Kama Kardashian

“Why have two K’s when you can have three? It may seem a bit OTT but I feel like keeping the K in the family is key for Khloe especially if it’s a baby girl. Kendra because Khloe’s a bit of a badass and this is the female take on the male Ken or Kendrick. Kama is the Hindu god of love and checking out their Instagram you can see this couple is pretty loved up.”

– Ella Francis, digital content producer


Honey Blossom Crime Fighter 

“They will want to go for a gender inclusive name so this way they have both traditionally female and male elements.”

– Alice Morgan, senior art director

Tyler ‘TyTy’ Thompson

“Not only does this work initials-wise if you’re going for the TT repeat, but being able to shorten it to TyTy keeps with family tradition of shortening into a ‘baby talk’ nickname like Koko or Kiki. ”

– Kelly McAuliffe, digital editor

Kira Kira

“Khloe’s favourite app, and fits with the KK theme of her family, even if the child’s last name will be Thompson.” OR

Cacao Money

“A play on Khloe’s nicknames Koko and Khlo Money.”

– Megan Bedford, beauty editor

My greatest dream realized! We are having a baby! I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along. He knew what He was doing. I simply had to trust in Him and be patient. I still at times can’t believe that our love created life! Tristan, thank you for loving me the way that you do! Thank you for treating me like a Queen! Thank you for making me feel beautiful at all stages! Tristan, most of all, Thank you for making me a MOMMY!!! You have made this experience even more magical than I could have envisioned! I will never forget how wonderful you’ve been to me during this time! Thank you for making me so happy my love! Thank you to everyone for the love and positive vibes! I know we’ve been keeping this quiet but we wanted to enjoy this between our family and close friends as long as we could privately. To enjoy our first precious moments just us ❤️ Thank you all for understanding. I am so thankful, excited, nervous, eager, overjoyed and scared all in one! But it’s the best bundle of feelings I’ve ever felt in my life! ❤️❤️❤️

For a boy

Knight Rider

“I secretly think Khloe is a huge fan of the TV show and think there is no better way to show that with this epic name”

– Alice Morgan, senior art director


“Because adding the Kardashian ‘K’ to the baby daddy’s first name is much more original that Tristan Jnr”

– Danielle Clausen, fashion editor

Kalvin Klein 

“Let’s be real —  that pregnancy reveal post? #sp AF. Who knows how much Calvin Klein actually paid for the exposure (8.8 million likes and counting), but you can bet it’ll be a whooole lot more for exclusive naming rights to the child itself. Think even Kris Jenner wouldn’t stoop so low? Then explain why Kim’s first post-baby Insta earlier this week (AKA baby name hint) was of the Louis Vuitton monogram. Yep, looks like Momager’s found a new revenue stream. And with an ever-increasing number of mouths to feed, we’re not even surprised.”

– Phoebe Watt, associate editor


“Taking a tip from Kim and Kanye, the couple’s home town might get a look in.”

– Megan Bedford, beauty editor

Tristan Kavalier Thompson Junior

“Khloe has already said she’d consider naming her baby Tristan Junior if she has a boy. So why not go the extra mile and honour her baby daddy even further by giving Tristan Jr the middle name ‘Kavalier’ – a Kardashian remix of the NBA team he plays for?”

– Kelly McAuliffe, digital editor

Duke Theo Tristan Junior

“Tristan already has a son named Prince, so Khloe’s baby boy name AT LEAST has to be on the same level. Beyonce’s already claimed Sir, so I’m thinking Duke might just be Khloe’s go-to. And it might just be cheating but I’ll throw Tristan Junior in there because she’s already hinted at the name. Can’t you just picture her saying it? Duke Theo Tristan Junior.”
