Kim Kardashian and North West

Kim Kardashian and her sisters, Khloe and Kylie, have taken the unusual step of trademarking their kids' names.

The Kardashian-Jenner siblings have filed documents to trademark Saint, North and Chicago West, True Thompson and Stormi Webster.

The sisters joined forces to prevent others from profiting off their children's household names.

The action comes after Beyonce and Jay-Z lost their 6-year battle to trademark daughter Blue Ivy Carter's name. Unfortunately, they didn't do their homework before deciding on their first child's name.

Another New York company was already established under the name Blue Ivy before BIC was even conceived.

The Kardashian moms are reportedly planning an affordable clothing line and other money-making ventures that will features their kids’ names, according to TMZ. The moms carefully cultivated the Kardashian Kid culture on social media, making their children almost as infamous as they are.

Kylie has also filed a trademark for 'Stormiworld', which links her daughter's name and her boyfriend Travis Scott's hit 2018 album Astroworld.

Question: Would you trademark your child's name now if you believe he or she might become a famous ball player or rapper later in life?

  • Let them eat cake

    Doubt anyone would want those ridiculous names...

  • Harley

    Everything they do is rooted in narcissism and attention. Who cares ?????

  • MsSapphire9800

    We may not care for them...but those chicks are about their money and business. Keeping that money in the family.

  • Anunnaki, in A twilight Zone

    I just wish black people would come to their senses, and delete this entire family.....in my MLK Voice...I have a dream. Good God, its so sickening

  • Harley

    They are reptiles and vampire spirits

  • Topic Influencer

    Umm what is the hold up bc if I am not mistaken Dream's name is already trademarked hence why she isnt listed. SO you mean to tell me her black ass mammy and her slow lead ass Daddy had the forethought but these hoes didnt?

  • Dowoop

    How do you trademark North West?

  • Topic Influencer

    Nobody wants them but if they arent trademarked anyone can use them.

  • Topic Influencer

    *snort*

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Seriously? I really don't think there was a stampede of people rushing to trademark "True Thompson" or "Stormi Webster".

  • Musiclover

    I want to know too it’s a direction, it’s like trying to trademark the wind!

  • MNjumpoffacliff

    Cease and desist sigh...

  • MsSapphire9800

    Why because they want to protect their children names...all entertainers do this so people do not use their children name for social media and other things.

  • Tinytoon

    Lol, you know Blac Chyna wasn't about to let the Hoèdashian clan claim a stake on Dream's name. She worked to hard for that pie.

  • Ni Ni

    No, i wouldn't cause I'm not a greedy person. Anywhoo, the queen attempted this and many people had no problem with it, so have at it Kardashians!

  • MsVAllDay

    Trademark the wind. That has me in stitches.

  • MJF

    For those who don't like her for other reasons, this actually makes complete sense. If I were a multi-millionaire I'd do the same instead of someone coming along to profit off of mine or my kids name.

  • IyanlaVanzantoftheInterWebs

    ?
    AND keeping their family unit TIGHT!

  • MsSapphire9800

    Hell Blac Chyna also wanted to trademark..."Blac Chyna Karadashian"...Chris blocked that mess and then she trademarked Dream name for future profits.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Told ya hexanbeast use their children for resource reasons only ! FAWK these demon women (really men) behind the mask .... moving on

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    I would rather here about Jussie skillet than this! I’ll take him all day

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    HA!!! ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL the facts

  • Topic Influencer

    Correct. She was trying to trademark herself as Angela Renee Kardashian. They shut it down. But the one for Dreamy DID get approved I thought. So why these others aint trademarked yet? Hums in my "Encore" voice: what the hell are you waiting fahhhhhhhhhh

  • LeeSeeCee

    The pimp game is strong in this family. The interest in Kardashian is finally waning so they are going to pimp those kids HARD. Raise your little monsters, but, don't be surprised when they feed on their families bones for more fame.
    KK's Mugler dress didn't fit her boobs right. She looked a mess to me. Bad seamstress or horrible direction on the fit to the seamstress. If you are going to do avant garde like that, you MUST rock it HARD. The boobs should complement not distract by looking misshapen. IJS...

  • isaiit

    That song is still my jam!

  • Coy little wink

    A trademark must denote a good or service...so any name that's not already in use in commerce can be trademarked ?

  • MsSapphire9800

    Well we will need to delete many non black women...because they are not the only ones who dates black men...they was not the first and definitely will not be the last.
    And most of their men were not dating black women anyway!!!!

  • onelove

    WAY TO GO kRIS!!!!

  • Topic Influencer

    I hate Jay-Z/The Stabber. But I DID at one time listen to him. A lot. *waits for the other old Roses to chime in like I KNEW IT*

  • Topic Influencer

    This. Just seems like they would have BEEN followed suit is my thought

  • Panther Charleston

    Girl, in one swoop, you just made them nanes raggedy as hell. Don't nobody want them raggedy names.

  • LeeSeeCee

    Outside of Beyonce, who else trademarked their kids names?

  • Coy little wink

    How much money do these hoes need OMG

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Over her smashing ribs Chile.... grubbs city ! Got nothing for this slut azz family .... with their thristy dry snatch azzes moving on !

  • Carrington

    Didn't Beyoncé do the EXACT same thing with Blue Jeans? Why is it when these women do the EXACT same $hit that other celebrities do, it suddenly becomes an issue? Just like that atrocious dress she had on this past weekend... she was all kinds of sluts and hoes... but, if you google Toni Braxton, she's dressed MUCH more "nekkidy" than that. Why do we hate these broads so much? LOL

  • Tinytoon

    I just look up North West, I believe its already trademarked. Kim won't be able to trademark her name.

  • Topic Influencer

    Cardi and Offset
    DJ Khaled
    Beckhams

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Right behind u

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    New post on a real queen fawk these demon women/ really men behind da mask ... new post upstairs

  • MNjumpoffacliff

    I kept my sick baby cousins all last week because of the death that occured, now everybody is sick except Ju. As a kid I always hated stuffed noses.

  • Tinytoon

    Kim might not be able to trademark North. I just look it up, not good for moneymakers.

  • morenYAHdelsur

    If you didn’t create the English language you can’t trademark these names ?

  • Carrington

    I PROMISE I don't get why, of all the $hit for black folk to hate, the Kardashian's seem to be at the top of this list. Let me tell you what I know for SURE - the majority of the people who call these broads all kinds of names for keeping a financial come up would do, and have done it, for much much less. If I could have a bunch of MFs I ain't never met and won't ever meet hating me for $100 million dollars. HATE me, mfs. I'll be sad all the way to the east wing of my haas. So, so sad.

  • isaiit

    ? Oh you def feel some kind of way about ole JZ. Not sure about any of his new stuff but his early 2000's isht I jam too

  • LeeSeeCee

    I had no idea the Beckhams. DJ Khaled been pimping that kid since he came out of the womb, lol.

  • Carrington

    Trademarking is not so that no one can ever name their children that... it's so that no business can use their children's names to make money. So, if anyone decides to sell a line of "North West Nail Polish" for little girls, or a line of clothing for little girls - they can't. You can't prevent anyone from using, or speaking, a name.

  • Coy little wink

    Too funny!

  • Dowoop

    You wouldn't be able to trademark North West as it is already widely used in commerce. Trademarking North West would prevent streetsigns from using it, maps from using as well as a host of other things. They do not have a legal foot to stand on as to why they deserve the commercial rights to a direction.

  • Ebony Starr

    Kim Kardashian and her sisters, Khloe and Kylie, have taken the unusual step of trademarking their kids' names.

    Kylie tried to trademark her name and Kylie Monague said not so fast!!!!

  • BingBangBoom

    I guess the wrinkles are coming in and the breast and butts are starting to sag.
    So why not secure the future bag!

  • Coy little wink

    Street signs aren't denoting a good or service tho ?

  • MsSapphire9800

    Many white entertainers...Tom Cruise...DJ Khadi...Cardi B...V Beckham...Brittany Spears...Ashton K...Chris Brown daughter mother...JA]ason Lee...(Pilot Inspektor Lee)

  • Renee26

    I suppose Dream will be trademarked by her momma instead of her deddy

  • xenaD

    Glad I’m not the only one. I ate one (just one) sticky wing for breakfast lol

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Dream is in every sentence Damn near every English language this shyt is a damn distraction !

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    YOu got yo wipes for your hands ?? me too

  • Renee26

    Not I

  • MsSapphire9800

    What...DJ Khaled son is on every red carpet...attend all awards shows.
    The Beckham children are photgraphed more than their parents.

  • Meme

    Took the words right out of my mouth. The first Kylie i ever knew was Ms Minogue (and might i add the only famous Kylie with real talent whom i am aware of is ms Minogue) the cheek of it with that jenner girl!

  • MsSapphire9800

    Her parents trademarked her name when she was born...

  • Renee26

    It's not just black folk who dislike that family... and for the same reasons I might add

  • Yui

    Don’t care ?????

  • Renee26

    I guess her name has already been trademarked...

  • Gloria

    Of course. The kids aren't even school aged and they already bout to get pimped out. SMH.

  • MsSapphire9800

    No white people pretend to dislike them...because if they did,,,why their show still running...why do white people choice them for the face of their products and hell Kourtney was invited to speak at the House of Senate...No we take it to the extreme....

  • LYRICS

    These fools!! How the bumboclaat can you trademark a city, directions, an occurrence in weather, and a noun!!? How Sway HOW!!!???

  • Angelique Johnson
  • Banka

    LMAO !!!!

  • Zeta Aggie

    They need to trademark all that silicone they inject in their bodies lol

  • EMILY POST

    Pimping out their children...

  • Zeta Aggie

    Because it was atrocious as you said. Was Toni’s?

  • Shelly Morgan

    How can you trademark NORTH WEST?

  • LeeSeeCee

    Just didn't know that they trademarked their names as well. I thought this was a new trend, lol. Learn some new pop culture stuff every dang day, lol.

  • Kanyade

    would i trademark my child's name? nope. not into branding little ones.

  • Trace da Ace

    ugh....these hoes again???? smdh....Ill pass....NEXT!

  • Renee26

    SOME white people not all... Just like SOME black people watch their show and support their brand...

    If you want to point out instances of black folks having issues with them taking credit for big asses, big lips, and wearing cornrows that's fine... Cause those traits and traditions are characteristics of the black/ African race so it's a valid reason to have an issue with these chicks profiting off culture of black people yet not giving a damn about anything black related outside of penis.

  • Coy little wink

    Its already been trademarked apparently...go to uspto.gov and search

  • CookieMobster
  • Tinytoon

    The one I see was done in 2011, before she was born.

  • MsSapphire9800

    Do they really take credit for it...or do white social media give them credit...because it will blow up blogs when they add their names...I have never seen any of them personally take credit for none of that..as for the cornrows...whites been gave credit to a non black Bo Derek and never apologize or admit it was our culture. As for our traits..well many of us have conform to their traits.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    ???

  • Renee26

    ?

  • Renee26

    They have capitalized off of those things yet reject anything else related to black issues.... Yeah it may be the "media" who reports the new trends but the family is absolutely accepting of taking credit for setting the trends.

    Tyga said in an interview that he advised Kylie to appeal to the black market if she wanted to get more money and recognition.... Then came her WHOLE transformation... Capitalizing off things popular in black culture.... Just like her big sisters have.

  • SpiceGirl

    So NOT surprised by this! I just wish we didn't have to hearread about them EVERY SINGLE day!

  • itsjismemelly

    LMAOOO...WURRDD SMH

    I’m sick of this whole family!!! I hope they all take a flight somewhere & their plane gets lost never to be found!!

  • Lindac

    I'm not getting this picture. It's warm enough for her child to wear "shorts," but she has to wear thigh high boots.

  • Rita

    That's wishful thinking..but I agree. Can't stand the P!gtrash!ans.

  • Rita

    SiliconeBodies. Yep!

  • Memphis TN

    nobody wants to name their kids that shit.. smdh..

  • Rita

    It was Blue Ivy, but someone already trademark that name..so it was denied And Kum riding off Bey again, because the PRO/stitute Never original.

  • Rita

    She look like PopCanBiscuits. Knowing damn well Couture don't fit her FakeDimple@ss.

  • T Willis

    The dress looked horrible on the runway model too. But Kim should have known better. Us DD+ girls can’t be wearing sh*t like that. I don’t care how much silicone is in them t*tties?????

  • T Willis

    They should have done this before their kids names were made public.

  • Harley

    Naw it has nothing to do with a trademark boo

  • MJF

    they still have time. That's like someone tried to profit off Blue Ivy's name early on and Bey sure as hell blocked that!

  • LaGrl562

    10 years we gon be talking about North they think this shit is cute wait until she becomes a teenage the we are gonna see how cute this is.................look at that expression on her face she loves this attention already ........................ooh it's going to be wild if you thought her Mom is bad just wait

  • Shani

  • Wreckognize Game

    You want them to go on Gilligan’s Airline? ?

  • MsSapphire9800

    Please do not address me as "boo." Thanks

  • Harley

    Bye boo ??

  • Logan Roberts

    So Kim & Kanye tries to do everything Beyonce & Jay does? North looks like she's gonna be hell when she grows up.

  • dontgetblocked

    North looks bad as hell! I would get arrested if I babysat her. I'd tear her little spoiled azz up. I've never hit a a child before but...I'd get those little legs with a switch.

  • Reenaface

    I'm being sarcastic with this comment. But, it has always amused me when people would make comments about how black women would if they could, follow the same route as Kim K and release a sex tape thinking that it would bring them instant fame and wealth. When the game wasn't written like that for women of color. The koven has the complexion for the protection as well as the backing of the elite. I've yet to see any black women profit off of any sex tape Kim K style.

  • JENNYJONES1

    AND THEY HAVE TRIED OR GIVE IT AWAY ON IG FOR FREE TO TRY TO GET A RAPPER OR BALL PLAYER IN HOPES OF GETTING KNOCKED UP & A CHILD SUPPORT CHECK BUT KIM K & SISTERS ARE HOES. SMH!!!!.........

  • Reenaface

    All of that is small fries compared to the koven. That's the only level that the girls on IG can get. They don't have the cosmetic companies and clothing lines. There's bares repeating but they don't have the complexion for the protection.

  • JENNYJONES1

    NOOOO THE KARDASHIAN/JENNERS ARE SERIOUS ABOUT THEIR BRAND SO MUCH SO THAT THEY ACTUALLY HAVE A LAW TEAM THAT GETS AN ALERT IF THE KARDASHIAN/JENNER NAME COMES UP FOR A TRADEMARK APPLICATION WHICH IS HOW THEY KNEW BLACK CHYNA WAS TRYING TO TRADEMARK 'ANGELA KARDASHIAN' AND STOPPED IT SO I'M SURE UNLIKE BEY & JAY THEY WON'T BE DENIED. MONEY WELL SPENT ON THE LAW TEAM.........JENNY JONES!!!

  • JENNYJONES1

    HOW ABOUT SHE HAD A DADDY THAT GOT A RICH, LOVED BY ALL WHITES, BLACK ATHLETE OFF FOR MURDERING A WHITE WOMAN WHICH HAD EVERY WHITE PERSON PISSED OFF SO HER GETTING 'D' DOWNED BY A BLACK MAN ON VIDEO WAS THE BIGGEST THING AFTER THE TRIAL AND MAMA KRIS MADE IT PAY OFF. IF IT WASN'T FOR THE OJ TRIAL NO ONE WOULD HAVE CARED.........JENNY JONES!!!

  • JENNYJONES1

    SAY WHAT U WANT ABOUT THEM BUT THEY ARE SERIOUS ABOUT PROTECTING THEIR BRAND AND BRANDING B/C IF THEY DON'T TRADEMARK THE NAMES SOMEONE ELSE WILL AND THEY'LL BE IN THE SAME BOAT AS BEY & JAY WERE WHEN THEY FINALLY GOT AROUND TO TRYING TO TRADEMARK BLUE IVY AND IT WAS ALREADY TAKEN. SHOULD'VE DONE IT WHILE SHE WAS PREGGO.......JENNY JONES!!!

  • Reenaface

    Backed by the elite complete with rituals made. That sex tape was a ritual.

  • JENNYJONES1

    YOU STILL CAN, YOU JUST CAN'T MARKET & MAKE MONEY OFF OF IT.......JENNY JONES!!!

  • JustB

    But I dont think anyone is rushing to name their babies after any of those kids...all their names are random and wouldn't be meaningful to any other parent...no hate jsf
