Kylie Jenner kept much of her pregnancy with her 1-year-old daughter Stormi a secret, but recently let fans in on one aspect of it — how she came up with her unique name.

According to E! News, the beauty mogul revealed during an Instagram Live video on Tuesday, March 12, that she considered a number of names before giving birth, and that there was one that almost beat out Stormi. The 21-year-old was a little hesitant at first to reveal some of the contenders because she may use them in the future, though she did admit the one name that was almost chosen for her first born.

“One name I will tell you guys, because I don’t think I’m ever going to name my daughter this, but I wanted to name her Rose,” she revealed to her 129 million Instagram followers.

She continued, explaining that she didn’t have a reason for “Rose” being one of her top choices, she just “really liked that name.”

“Shout-out to everyone named ‘Rose,'” she said.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star also revealed that the name “Rose” was actually third on her list of name choices and that she had another “weird name” picked out that simply “didn’t work” for baby Stormi, though she did not share what it was.

Kylie came up with Stormie after considering the name “Storm” and adding the “ie” to the end because she wanted her daughter’s name to have the same sound as her own. She ultimately dropped the “e” at the last minute when finalizing the birth certificate, giving baby Stormi the name fans have come to know and love.

“It just always felt right,” she said of the moniker after revealing that she used to talk to her daughter in the womb and call her “Stormie.”

“I just couldn’t imagine any other name other than Stormi,” she said.

As The Inquisitr previously reported, the youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner sisters also recently clued fans in to how she got to her incredible post-baby body a little over a year after giving birth to her first child. While she attributed most of it to following a strict diet that includes cutting out a lot of the “crazy” eating she usually does, she also gave some credit to her good metabolism.

“I’m naturally just a really skinny person. But not like Kendall. She’s naturally like model status,” she explained during another live stream. “But yeah, I’ve always had a really flat stomach but I’ve never felt like it went back to what it was before Stormi until recently, and I feel like it has a lot to do with diet.”
