Kylie Jenner caused quite a lot of controversy when she revealed the name of her first child.

Fans were divided by her daughter Stormi’s moniker when it was made public, and it looks like Kylie had originally chosen a stunning floral name for her little girl.

It is understood that Kylie decided to call her daughter Stormi at the last minute. She was planning on calling her Rose, after her favourite flower, for quite some time.

The businesswoman shared the fact during an Instagram Live last night.

Rose was one of three names Kylie had picked out during her pregnancy. She said the other name was ‘really weird’ but didn’t disclose what it was.

Commenting on making that big decision, Kylie said: “Stormi always felt like her name from when she was in the womb. It’s almost like she chose her name.”

Kylie shares her daughter with her partner Travis Scott. The couple recently celebrated their baby girl’s first birthday on February 1.

When Stormi was born, her mum spoke about how wonderful the experience of pregnancy had been for her, after logging off social media for the entire nine months.

"Pregnancy has been the most beautiful, empowering, and life-changing experience I've had in my entire life and I'm actually going to miss it," Kylie wrote to her millions of followers.

"I appreciate my friends and especially my family for helping me make this special moment as private as we could. My beautiful and healthy baby girl arrived February 1st and I just couldn't wait to share this blessing," she added.

Only in one of the worlds most famous families would you see the parents thinking ahead to trademark their kid's distinctive names. 

Of course, the Kardashians are embarking on doing just that. Following the influx of new family members in 2018, the clan are trademarking Saint, North, Chicago, True, and Stormi's names.

According to documents obtained by TMZ, the family wants to use their children's names for products including clothes, toys, and skin care.

Youngest sister Kylie  also filed a trademark for Stormiworld following her daughter's epic first birthday party.

The trademarks means that the family can use the names to sell products, while ensuring that no other companies can use the monikers as a means to promote their own products without permission. 

The Kardashian-Jenners requested the ability to sign endorsement deals for others’ products who wish to use the names.

This might seem weird, but for the Kardashians, it's definitely not beyond the stretch of the imagination that the family would want to make their next generation as lucrative as the current one. 

They are not the first famous family to trademark their kid's names. 

Two years ago, Beyonce and Jay Z trademarked their little girl Blue Ivy's name for use in the  goods and services industry.

Ireland isn't exactly the hotspot for musical talent to visit during the summer, but recently we've been acquiring some absolutely MAJOR acts from around the world.

Some of us may remember the days of Oxygen (Rest in Pieces), but Electric Picnic has taken over as the biggest and most popular festival in the Irish calendar.

Longitude appears to have become the most 'hip-hop' festival in town overnight, who saw that one coming? All the young ones adore it, hence why artists such as Chance the Rapper, Future and AS$P Rocky are headlining it this year.

Oh, and the queen that is CARDI B (gasp)… this will be us when she emerges on stage like the glorious, ghetto peacock that she is:

Luckily for you, we've decided to do a round-up of EVERYTHING there is to know of 2019's Irish music festivals.

Strap yourselves in, get your raincoat and wellies ready, it's looking like a muddy ride. 

God knows why we all live for summer's music gigs, most of us have had our stuff stolen, our tents destroyed and our dignity abandoned, yet we still come crawling back for more. Must be our dedication to the art, or something?

First up: Castlepalooza: May 3 – May 5 2019

Things have been pretty hush hush this year in Castlepalooza-land. So far, no headline acts have been announced and even the early bird tickets aren't on sale yet.

As far as speculation goes, they normally stick to Irish acts such as AllTvvins and The Rubberbandits, so maybe they'll get Dermot Kennedy or Picture This?

We're assuming it's still taking place in Charleville Castle, Tullamore, but they've changed the dates so who knows. All will be revealed.

Life Festival: May 24 – May 26 2019

For #Life19, some major dance players have been given the green light to DJ, including Giggs, Bicep, MK, Nina Kraviz and CamelPhat. Think District 8 but in the woodlands.

The festival is returning to Belvedere House in County Westmeath for a weekend of phenomenal tunes. There are three days, six stages and a jam-packed line-up.

Chill by the lakeside stage for a more relaxed vibe, or hit the District 8 tent and Main Stage for absolute dance mania.

Vantastival: 31 May – June 2 2019

Known as the last real festival for camper vans and 'legit' music lover families, Vantastival is relatively unknown in some circles but a must-see in others.

Taking place in Drogheda, Co. Louth, the festival boasts comedy shows, craft beer, art installations and a kids' camp for families.

The festival gets some unbelievable talent up to play, and the headline acts this year have already been announced.

King Kong Company, David Keenan, Cry Monster Cry, Just Mustard and I'd Fight Gandhi are all hitting the stages this year, it's gonna be a BIG one for their 10th anniversary.

Forbidden Fruit: June 1 – June 3 2019

Forbidden Fruit has been a steadily growing Irish festival for years, with some well-known as well as emerging talent performing DJ sets in the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Kilmainham.

Headliners this year are Mura Masa (INCREDIBLE), Skepta, Elbow, First Aid Kit and Danny Brown. They're spreading out the genres this year, bringing in some new and more alternative names.

Tickets went on-sale back in December, but there are still a few left. We recommend grabbing them before they're gone.

Body&Soul: June 21 – June 23 2019

The arts festival takes place in Ballinlough, Co. Westmeath, and it's celebrating it's 10th run this year.

Previous headliners include Nick Cave, but they have yet to tease 2019's fixtures. 

It's a cesspit for creative minds, branding itself as the biggest 'independent' festival in Ireland. They're announcing the line-up very soon, so stay tuned. We're guessing perhaps Christine and the Queens?

Sea Sessions: June 21- June 23 2019

Sea Sessions is well on the rise. The festival is specifically for surfers, and takes place in Bundoran, Co. Donegal for those sea lovers every year.

They've got a STELLAR line-up for 2019: Sigrid (I cried when I saw her, not gonna lie), Clean Bandit and Two Door Cinema Club are the star acts who will blaze up that stage.

This one looks set to be an incredible year, especially if the weather holds up. Tickets are on sale now, but it sells out every year so get on it ASAP.

Longitude – July 5 – July 7 2019

They've just announced some massive names to the chart: Cardi B and Anne-Marie are two unreal additions.

The festival is running from Friday July 5 until Sunday July 7 in Marlay Park, and always gets some pure stunning weather (for once).

The line-ups have DRASTICALLY changed even since 2017, when Mumford & Sons took centre stage. It's all about those rap stars nowadays, who would have thought Irish people would crave the genre so much? Maybe it's just the young wans.

Tickets are back on sale this Friday, February 1 at 9am. Get ready for online mayhem, as Cardi B is sure to attract thousands of eager fans.

All Together Now: August 2 – August 4 2019

The festival takes place in Curraghmore House in County Waterford during the August Bank Holiday, so it's always a sure-fire hit.

American indie band The National are the headliners for this year's take; previous performers include Fleet Foxes, Mura Masa, Villagers and First Aid Kit.

Most of the tickets have already sold-out for this year's festival, but there's always DoneDeal? Camper van tickets are also still available, but not much else except the higher priced ones.

Electric Picnic: August 30 – September 1 2019

So E.P. is ALREADY sold-out, as predicted. 

The speculation has begun, seeing as nobody is aware of the line-up as of yet, and we're gonna go ahead and pray that our home-girl ARIANA GRANDE hits the Main Stage. Get your rosary beads out.

Last year saw N.E.R.D, Kendrick Lamar and The Prodigy hit the stage as headliners, and Sigrid and Dua Lipa absolutely smashed it during their performances. We'd love to see those gals return with new albums under their belts.

There you are, gals. The ULTIMATE Irish music festival round-up for 2019…so far. We're tingling with excitement already at the thought of sneaking in all those naggins/cans/wine bottles/shoulders/litres/whatever the kids drink nowadays.

Now all we need is the funds to afford any/all of these amazing gigs. Maybe we could sneak in?

The world has been obsessed with the arrival of Beyoncé and Jay-Z's twins ever since Bey's epic Instagram pregnancy announcement. 

The twins arrival back in June was a hot bed of rumours and anticipation, as fans clamoured for news of the twin's names.

Not everyone was impressed with the chosen monikers of Rumi and Sir, but now we have an explanation as to where they got their unique names.

 

A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

In a new interview, with Rap Radar, Jay-Z has revealed exactly why those names were chosen for his baby son and daughter.

'Rumi is our favourite poet, so it was for our daughter,' he told the mag. 

This name was chosen in reference to 13th century Persian poet Maulana Jalaluddin Rumi.

 

A post shared by Beyoncé (@beyonce) on

However, Sir's name came about in a pretty different manner.

'Sir was like, man, come out the gate.'

He carries himself like that. He just came out like, Sir,' Jay-Z explained.

Whether you love your name or hate your name, it could be the key to your success. Well, apparently.

Recent research has revealed how a name can influence the way people respond to you and see you as a person.

Professor Richard Wiseman, from the University of Hertfordshire, told the Inquirer: "If your name sounds intelligent, successful and attractive, you are more likely to act those things."

And similarly, another study was conducted by psychologist Albert Mehrabian of the University of California, which showed that people were treated differently depending on how attractive or unattractive their name was.

In his book Beneficial and Harmful Baby Names, he wrote: "Names make impressions, just like the way you clothe your child or the way you groom them makes an impression. People with 'undesirable' names do get treated differently."

He also came up with a list of the most attractive names:

Girls
1. Elizabeth
2. Jacqueline
3. Holly
4. Ann
5. Mary

Boys
1. James
2. Steven
3. Christopher
4. Kenneth
5. Thomas

nice thumbs up michelle obama sarcastic cool story bro

Bottom of the list:

Girls
1. Elvira
2. Eula
3. Shar
4. Zoila
5. Latrina

Boys
1. Butch
2. Rufus
3. Ozzie
4. Jock
5. Rip

In the study, the researchers concluded that there seems to be an apparent link between your name and what you're interested in – just look at the fastest man on Earth, Usain Bolt.

The world of fashion can be a minefield. 

The trends change every season, models are popping up left, right and centre and then there's designers names. 

While Burberry might slip easily off the tongue, there's a whole world of designers names we can't even attempt to pronounce. 

So, if you need to fake it in fashion, here's a little lesson of some labels not-so phonetic names. 

Dolce & Gabbana: Doll-che & Gab-ana

 

Herve Leger: Her-vay Lay-jarr

 

Hermes: Er-mez

 

Louis Vuitton: Loo-wee Vwee-ton

 

Marchesa: Mar-kay-zah

 

Badgley Mischka: Badge-lee Meesh-kah

 

Lanvin: Lahn-van

 

Moschino: Moss-key-no

 

Givenchy: Jee-von-she

 

Yves Saint Laurent: Eve San Lau-ron

It's tough when it comes to choosing a name for a human being that will stick with them for the rest of their lives. So where do you turn for inspiration? Books? The Internet? Game Of Thrones? Wait, what?

Yes that's right, British parents have now began looking to Game of Thrones for their inspiration when naming their newborns. 

According to the Office for National Statistics in England, several of the character names from Game of Thrones have been registered to babies since the release of the television series first aired in 2011.

We're really not sure how we feel about all of this. 

For the boys, 17 kids have been named Tyrion, which isn't too bad because Tyrion is definitely one of the most likeable characters and mainly because he's still alive five seasons on. 

However, some of the more unfortunate babies got the name Theon. Eek! (Or should we Reek)

The girls got even more character names, with Khaleesi being very popular as 53 babies are named after the mother of dragons. 

Arya however was the most popular GOT female baby name of all with a huge 244 babies being named after the Stark girl. 

Brienne was a new entry with 4 infants being named after the knight recently. 

Other fictional characters as also influencing the name choosing process as Anna and Elsa ranked hugely popular for girls.

It’s happened to the best of us.

You see someone you’ve met a few times and realise you’ve drawn a complete blank on their name.

You bluff your way through the conversation, until that cringe moment when someone asks you to introduce them to your anonymous pal!

Here, a few super simple tactics to avoid that awkward moment for good.

Repeat
When you first meet someone, immediately say their name out loud – “Nice to meet you Sue”

Reinforce
Form an association between the name and the person, such as ‘merry Mary’ or ‘tall Paul’. Do not say this out loud, and especially not in front of the person in question!

Record
Rely on an external memory source. Tell your good-with-names friend or make a note in your phone or diary.

And if all else fails
Even if you can’t remember someone’s name, you can usually recall something about them, which will let them know you didn’t forget them altogether. Say something like, “I’m so bad with names, but I know we take spin together.” Or reintroduce yourself and hope they return the favour. Chances are they can’t remember your name either, so don’t sweat it.
