    wow you people are grumpier than Grumpy Cat today and at least he’s cute when grumpy.

    Personally I think Khloe Marie or Khloe Grace are both very pretty names. I like Khloe with a K and I am not a Kardashian fan. Every Chloe with a C I ever knew was either greasy or a dog (like a puppy, not an ugly person). K spices it up!

    My parents named all of us kids with the same first letter. Don’t give the Kardashians the credit of that!

    Personally I don’t like any of the names, so I wouldn’t chose any of them

    normally I don’t judge other people’s name choices (to their faces), but since you asked…

    I think either of your boy choices are very nice. But I echo what a lot of the other posters are telling you – Khloe is just a kind of bizarre, unfriendly looking name. Looking at it on the page, it isn’t even intuitive how to pronounce it, which is silly because it’s exactly the same as Chloe, a very common name, but starting with a K, it just doesn’t look right. When I see it, I just don’t know how to say it, and I can’t help but make a weird face. It looks like a bunch of nonsensical letters jumbled up on the page. It makes me want to say ‘K-hole’. K-variants of some names are fine, but in my opinion, the already unfamiliar-in-English letter combination of the hard C followed by the H and the L is made practically nonsensical when you start it with a K. I’m no linguist, but if it starts with a K, isn’t the H sort of silly and useless? I would imagine that in whatever language the name Chloe is from, the H is to ‘harden’ the C (so people wouldn’t think to pronounce it ‘slo-ey’)?  ‘Kh’ makes me feel like it’s one of those gutteral, back-of-the-throat, clearing your throat sounds like in a language like Arabic. Nothing against those sounds, but I doubt that’s what you were going for. 

    Sorry for all the weird detail, I’m just trying to give you some concrete examples that explain why I think it’s a really unattractive name that are a little more helpful than “ew, Kardashians”.

    I agree with other posters about changing the K in Khloe to C. Not because of the Kardashians or whatever I just think it looks nicer. Lol although I picked my daughters name because a few months before I got pregnant with her I had a dream that I had a daughter named Kaydence Catherine so when I did get preggers with a girl I picked it lol. My son, I named him after my younger brother which also happened to be his Dad’s middle name (we used his Dad’s first name as my sons middle name — kind of switched it lol).

    When I get preggers again I am going totally old school and breaking the mold of contemporary names. If it is a girl we will name her after my grandmother, Virginia (Ginny for short and many people will think that is because of Harry Potter but in fact that was my Grandmothers nickname — they spelt hers Gini though).

    Afree with comments about Khloe – she’ll be forever correcting banks, phone contracts, etc who will spell it ‘Chloe’ and it will drive her mad! If she applies for college, jobs, etc her name will be the first impression they have of her. Not saying that everyone is judgemental but it does just look like you’ve spelt it wrong.

    I’m afraid I don’t like either of your boys names, I really hate names that are actually professions (Tyler, Taylor, mason, smith, hunter, etc) Even if they are ‘family names’. My partner and I joke that it will never end and it 50 years time we’ll have names like ‘Doctor, hairdresser, etc! Lol

    @Yellwill:  haha, I never even thought of that! profession-names. Maybe. My bet is, what we’ll have is a ton of lastname-lastname hyphenated first names because so many kids will have hyphenated last names that it will become trendy for them to be used as first names ๐Ÿ˜›  Meet my son Smith-Jones King-Hunter

    @FutureMrsWeston:  I’m well aware.

     

    She asked bees to pick a girl and boy name from her list. She didn’t ask whether or not people liked them. I doubt she was looking for the criticism of the names she chose. She didn’t say “judge my names!”

    @MrsBoomBoom:  I don’t think anyone was trying to insult you. Whether you like khloe kardashian or not, that’s what people will think. Not that it matters what anyone thinks unless you put up a poll on the Internet ๐Ÿ™‚

    If it is just the K, I say keep looking! There are some great K names like Katerina or Kiera that won’t have her saying “no, with a K” her whole life.

    Aside from the Kardashian connection (which I think it is truemost will assume you named the baby after)

    a) I prefer Chloe because I using the traditional spelling makes a kid’s life easier, don’t have to correct people as often, more likely to be able to find a keychain with their name on it at DisneyWorld, etc and

    b) I’m not a fan of matching siblings first names first letters on purpose. It seems cutesy when they are little, but I just think kids grow out of cutesy but they are stuck with it if it’s their name.

    Back to the poll options, I love Chloe Grace and Tyler James.
