It was almost given to Kylie Jenner in a different name - one that she prefers even more
Kylie Jenner revealed that her name was almost changed entirely. As much as Kylie Minogue may be known by her trademark moniker now - as it has surpassed even her fame as a makeup mogul - Kris Jenner's parents, Kris and Bruce Jenner, had yet to come up with a name that began with the letter K as their first initial.
Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Kendal Jenner, and Kylie Jenner have all been given names beginning with the letter K by their famous mom Kris Jenner, as their initials are all the same.
The 25-year-old singer has revealed in a new video on TikTok that she was almost called Kennedy, a name her mother fell head over heels for, and which was almost given to her before her birth. Stormi Webster, Kylie's four-year-old daughter, explained the situation to her millions of TikTok fans. Makeup mogul Kylie Jenner said: "I'm Kylie but I'm almost Kennedy."
The name, which is a common surname in Ireland, was originally a Gaelic word that meant 'helmeted chief' and dates back to the 10th century. It gained presidential reference after US president John F. Kennedy. Kylie admits that Kennedy just doesn't 'hit the same as her first name.
