Kim Kardashian's Baby Name Is None of Kris Jenner's Business

Rant 15

Kim Kardashian & Kanye WestAfter reading a report saying that Kris Jenner told Kanye West she wanted his baby to have a "K" name, I can't help but want to yell, "Oh, hell no!" at the top of my lungs.

Supposedly Kris was all bummed out when Kourtney Kardashian chose to forgo the "K" name tradition for her two kids, Mason and Penelope. So naturally, when Kim Kardashian turned up preggo, Kris figured this was her big chance to finally get the "K" grandchild she's always dreamed of.

And while Kim is reportedly on board with making mama Kris happy, Kanye isn't having it. Get this one: he thinks he and Kim should be the ones to choose their baby's name -- not his future mother-in-law. (The nerve!)

You know what? He's absolutely right. (You tell her, Kanye!)

A baby's name is nobody's business but his mom and dad's. In-laws are the last people who should have a say in whatever moniker winds up being chosen.

While my own in-laws never said one word to me and my husband about what we should or should not name our son, I can't help but wonder if they were disappointed when we strayed from family tradition with what we called him.

You see, every boy on my mother-in-law's side of the family has one of two middle names, Hunter or Marshall. When we found out we were expecting a boy, I knew there was no way in hell we'd go with Hunter, because our last name is Fischer. Um, Hunter Fischer? I don't think so. I can still hear the mountain man jokes running through my head.

And Marshall? I just wasn't feeling it. And it didn't fit with the first name we'd chosen anyway.

(Besides, our son has my husband's last name, so it's not like he isn't carrying on the family surname or anything like that.)

I guess we got lucky because no one gave us a hard time or tried to influence what we named our baby.

But if I ever have a second one, I think I'll just go ahead and put it out there that input from family members will not be welcome.

(But it's cool, because I'm on the "one and done" plan anyway.)

Did your in-laws try and influence what you named your baby?

Momma Pimp Jenner always puts her 2 cents in. She makes more money that way.

My mother in law chose my son's name only because we couldn't agree on one. It was between Clark or Kalvin, but since we couldn't agree we asked her for advice and she said it should be Samuel. We put it on the short list of names we had since we agreed not to name him until we met him. She got her wish, when I saw him I agreed with her, he was a Samuel.

My in laws are Mr. & Mrs. Kris Jenner for sure. They named my sis in laws children, and tried to named my son too.. My husband knew it would killing me so me, husband & his dad made a name list.mine more trendy-quirky names while in-laws list were super traditional I barely even heard such names anymore.. Actually,My husband made a list just to "cover" my rebellation against his dad over baby names,he didnt really care about it.but luckyly,we found a name from both mine & my in law list. Love love love my little Sultan..

no I chose my son's name completely. I would have told them to butt out its my decision and their opinion doesn't matter.....his dad's opinion barely mattered

Sorry, but Kim can not do anything without mommies input... I feel sorry for that kid...

I dont think Kanye is all that great, he seems to be very controlling... but I do know, he is a loose cannon and anything will happen. I think mom jenner better watch out and i also think, Kim may have made a big mistake with this guy... sorry, but he just seems very controlling...she does not seem to be her smiley self lately...

Oh my, she will have to put her baby before herself!!!  my, my, choices?

My mom picked out the name Ian for my first son but we used it because we liked it,(his mom hated the name Ian) not because thats what she wanted. My other son Dominic me and my boyfriend picked that out together and even though my mom wanted me to name him something else I stuck with what I wanted. I don't know what his moms opinon was on this name but I wouldn't have cared regardless. Both of my boys have a middle name that start with a m because me and their dad both have a middle name that starts with m that was my idea. I like to get my familys opinon on things but in the end I usually stick to what I want wether they like it or not.

In the photo at the top of this comment section, where Kim is wearing the saggy green dress, the West/Kardashians make a really sad-looking couple. She looks droopy and resembles a whipped puppy. He looks infuriated and ready to knock somebody for a loop.
