The third generation of the Kardashian-Jenner family has certainly proved to be a masterclass in mononymous monikers. Yet, for the oldest daughter in the infamous matriarchy, Kourtney Kardashian, the Lemme founder certainly prefers to ere on the side of normalcy when compared to the unique namesakes of her nieces and nephews.
So, when news of her pregnancy with her Blink-182 drummer husband, Travis Barker, emerged, speculation regarding what possible names the couple’s respective fourth child could be called reached a fever pitch.
Naturally, internet sleuths were quick to cross-check Barker and Kardashian’s online interactions for any clues, which led to the biggest breakthrough in their search: a comment left by Barker on Kardashian’s Halloween-themed post from 2022 claiming that their future child would be named Elvis.
The fact that the couple dressed up as Elvis-obsessed couple Alabama and Clarence Worley from True Detective seemed to also hint that this name was a front runner, with the couple’s ‘Little Drummer Boy’-themed gender reveal proving to corroborate this theory.
However, it looks like these pieces of ‘proof’ could be a red herring, with an innocuous blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment from Kardashian’s vintage Disneyland-themed baby shower signalling that baby Barker could have a different name entirely.
In a now-deleted Instagram story posted by Kardashian, the 44-year-old filmed one of her guests hanging up a handwritten note on the wishing tree, with the beginning of the message reading ‘may baby Rocky…’ signalling that their bundle of joy could be named Rocky.
In an interview for Complex with his 17-year-old daughter Alabama, Barker revealed that his idea of the ‘Goat Name’ is ‘Rocky Thirteen’, so perhaps the couple have adopted this nickname while they determine what he’ll be called.
In the interview, Barker shared that Rocky is inspired by Rocky George, the guitarist of the thrash metal band Suicidal Tendencies, and “the greatest boxing movie of all time”, with thirteen “just the greatest number ever”.
‘Rocky’ will be welcomed into a blended family of eight, including Kardashian’s children Mason, 13, Penelope, 11, and Reign, 8, and Barker’s children, Landon, 19, Alabama, 17 and Barker’s step-daughter, Atiana, 24.
