Kylie Jenner Reveals REAL Reason Behind Baby Name

by at .

Let's be honest: Stormi Webster is a terrible name.

It's not cute, there's no shorthand version of it and it makes most people think of this porn star.

So... why did Kylie Jenner select Stormi as the first name of her first child?

Nearly a month after she was born, we think we have the answer.

Scroll down for a look at what Kylie has revealed about a name that is unique and does possess a theme and which can, as you're about to learn, be used to marketing purposes...

Kylie came out in late February 2018 and unveiled new products from her cosmetics line, all, she explained, inspired by little Stormi. Shocking, right? There's a marketing and capitalism theme to the name selection.

As you can see, this is a pressed powder palette... that is named after Kylie's daughter, just like every new item in this collection. It's almost as though this was the plan all along.

We really can't get over this, the obvious way in which Jenner chose her child's name purely based on how it would give her a catchy title for a line of beauty products.
