Celebrity baby names are always a hot topic. Stars seem to pick the most unique names for their bundles of joy, and let’s be honest ... sometimes they are a bit, well, strange. But Kourtney Kardashian and boyfriend Scott Disick didn’t just pull a name out of the hat when naming their new son, Mason Dash. In the current issue of Life & Style, the new parents talk about the meaning behind the name and why they chose it.
"The first time I started looking at baby names, Mason was the only one I liked," Kourtney tells the mag. "It was the only one that stuck with me. Right before he was born, I told my aunt we were thinking about going with that for a name. She told me that Mason means the same thing in English that Kardashian means in Armenian — stone worker. Another aunt told me my great uncle used to use the name Mason when he made dinner reservations, because Kardashian was too long. When I heard that, I thought, Oh my god, it's meant to be."
And while fans are most familiar with the name Dash from the Kardashian sisters’ clothing boutique, Kourtney insists that’s not where Baby Mason’s middle name is derived. "Dash is not for my clothing store, as some people have suggested online," says Kourtney. "That would be stupid. Dash is short for Kardashian, and it was my father's nickname."
Kourtney and Scott admit that Mason Dash is not the only name this baby is called. He also goes by “Gorgeous, Precious, Munchkin, Angel,” she tells the magazine. We’re not surprised!
