Kylie Jenner recently revealed that she changed the name of her newborn son with Travis Scott over a month after giving birth.

After welcoming the baby boy on February 2, the Life of Kylie alum, 24, announced his moniker as Wolf Webster, before ultimately deciding the name didn't fit their new babe.

Now, fans are desperately waiting to see what Kylie and Travis have switched the baby's name to, and we can likely depend on the new name being something unique.

The rest of Kylie's siblings — with the exception of her sister Kendall Jenner, who doesn't have any kids yet — have all chosen one-of-a-kind names for their little ones, but apparently there is a method to their madness.

Scroll through the images below to learn the meanings behind all of the Kardashian-Jenner kids' unique monikers:

Mason Dash Disick

Mason Dash Disick, 12 — the first born child of Kourtney Kardashian and her ex-boyfriend Scott Disick, was the only name the reality star mama was fond of during her pregnancy.


Kourtney was previously told by her aunt that Mason means the same thing in English as Kardashian means in Armenia, which is "stone worker." Additionally, her great uncle reportedly would use the name Mason when making dinner reservations since Kardashian was too long.

Mason's middle name, Dash, is an ode to Kourtney's late father, Robert Kardashian, who was often called by the same nickname.
