Strange baby names aren’t an unordinary thing for the Kardashian klan. They’ve got Reign, North, Saint, Chicago and Dream already so Khloe Kardashian naming her baby True Thompson just seems like another unique name that fits in with all her cousin’s unique names.
However, Kris Jenner tweeted about how True is actually a legacy name in her family:
“FUN FACT… my Grandfather’s name on my Dad’s side was True Otis Houghton….my real Dad’s name was Robert True Houghton…so i am so excited Khloe named her daughter True!!!”

The more controversial part of the baby’s name might actually be that Khloe still gave her Tristan Thompson’s last name after he was outed as cheating on her while she was pregnant. But even in those circumstances, it’s relatively common for moms to use their partner’s last name — even if they aren’t currently together or regarded as a great person in general. Last names are weirdly important to men and it can be one way to hold out hope that the relationship might work, or just to start co-parenting off on a good foot.
