In recent years, the Kardashian family has grown rapidly. There were only a handful of members, but today it seems like every year a new child is born into the clan.
The Kardashians and Jenners are known to be a huge, close-knit family, but they also invite people to talk about how they usually name their children. Some fans think that sisters are quite traditional in some ways, which may not be beneficial for children later. Let's take a closer look why fans believe it.
Who are the children of the Kardashian sisters?
The older sister, Kourtney Kardashian, has three children with her ex-boyfriend Scott Disick: Mason (born in 2009), Penelope (born 2012) and Reign (born 2014).
Kim Kardashian and her husband, Kanye West, have four children: North (born in 2013), Saint (born in 2015), Chicago (born in 2018) and Psalm (born in 2019).
Khloe Kardashian has a child with her ex-boyfriend Tristan Thompson: True (2018).
The youngest sister, Kylie Jenner, has a child with her current boyfriend, Travis Scott: Stormi (born 2018).
Why do fans think Kardashian sisters are too traditional?
It is clear that the sisters are not traditional regarding the names of their children. Many children in Kardashian have unusual names and, according to BabyCenter, Mason is the only one to rank among the top 20.
However, some people have noticed that Kardashian sisters are quite traditional in their children's last name. All children carry the family name of their father, regardless of the relationship between their parents.
In the case of Khloe Kardashian, for example, many fans have found it odd that she named her daughter True Thompson, even though her ex-boyfriend cheated on her several times and she is not the main caregiver of True.
Kourtney Kardashian co-sponsors her three children with her ex-boyfriend, but they all carry her family name: Disick.
Meanwhile, Kylie Jenner's daughter bears the real name of Travis Scott, Stormi Webster.
Kim Kardashian – the only sister currently married – has changed her name to Kim Kardashian West, but her family's last name only bears the last name of her husband: West.
The only child in the Kardashian family to bear this last name is Rob Kardashian's daughter, Dream. Many fans think that the sisters should have given their children the family name Kardashian or Jenner, because they are much more recognizable.
"The Kardashian / Jenner name is really the most important here, it's as simple as writing" Kardashian "on the birth certificate," said a Reddit user. "They are strangely and unfortunately traditional when I think they are the pillars of couples."
"They are not traditional in any other sense, so why this one?", Commented another person.
Will Kardashian children change their last name in the future?
Some people even believe that children themselves might choose to change their name in the future, especially if their parents' relationships are deteriorating or if their father is not active in their lives.
One fan said, "I'll bet True and Stormi will eventually become Kardashian / Jenner, provided that Kylie and Travis are not together or have trouble parenting with them."
Of course, these are just predictions and it will take a long time to know which family name these kids will choose. However, one person on Reddit pointed out that maybe these Kardashian sisters just want to show that they care about the father of their children and do not want to dismiss them completely.
"Do they need accusations that they should be with these men only to have babies?" Said the fan. "Khloe giving his last name to True would seem to be a paternal alienation."
