This afternoon, new mom Khloé Kardashian revealed the name of her and Tristan Thompson’s newborn daughter—True. The 33-year-old made the announcement on social media with the sweet message, “Our little girl, True Thompson, has completely stolen our hearts and we are overwhelmed with LOVE. Such a blessing to welcome this angel into the family! Mommy and Daddy loooooove you True!”

As expected, the name “True” essentially has the same meaning as the word “true.” says it means “real, genuine” and describes it as “honest, loyal.” Merriam Webster dictionary has multiple definitions, including “being in accordance with the actual state of affairs,” “properly so called,” and phrases like “steadfast, loyal, honest, and just.”

The name announcement, though a big deal for the first-time mom, did not go over well on Twitter, considering cheating accusations against Tristan Thompson nearly broke the Internet last week.

However momager (and grandmother) Kris Jenner assured that the name runs in the family. She explained on Twitter shortly after Khloé made the big reveal, “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!!!”

Despite the sweet anecdote, some people showed disapproval of Kardashian’s name choice.

Some couldn’t help but point out the irony.

A few even wondered if the baby’s name was meant to have a hidden message.

And some Kardashian fans continued to troll (or full-out throw shade at) Thompson, as they have been in the wake of his cheating scandal.

Whether you like “True” or not, it’s surely a unique addition to the celebrity baby name lexicon. Baby name site points out that other A-listers who’ve used the name are Forest Whitaker, who named his daughter True Whitaker, and Meg Ryan, who used it as a middle name for her daughter, Daisy True Ryan. According to Social Security’s official website, the name is so rare, it’s not even in the top 1000 any year after 2000.
