What’s the meaning of Khloé Kardashian’s baby name, True?

We're the first to admit, True is not a name we've heard before. In fact, the last night it spiked in popularity was over 200 years ago - so that kinda explains why it sounds kinda unusual.

Behind The Name reveals True means "conforming to the actual state of reality or fact; factually correct; loyal, faithful; genuine; legitimate; accurate". From the Middle English trewe, from the Old English trīewe, (Mercian) trēowe 'trusty, faithful'."

"True was first used as a virtue name by the Puritans, mainly as a feminine name back then. The name had almost died out by the end of the 1800s, but was revived in the last years of the 20th century."

Merriam-Webster defines the word as that which is "fully realised or fulfilled", like a dream come true, and "that which is the case rather than what is manifest or assumed the true dimension of the problem."

Who is Khloé Kardashian’s baby, True, named after?

Kris Jenner just revealed that her youngest granddaughter is named after an older family member.

Taking to Twitter, Kris explains that 'True' was actually her grandfather's name.

"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!!!" Kris wrote.

Fans, however, speculated that the choice of name might be a subtle dig at Tristan amidst his recent cheating scandal:
