We hope that Kim talks to her big sister Kourtney when it is time to name her second baby, as Kourtney has chosen great names for her three kids. They are trendy and cute, yet unique at the same time.

She has a baby boy named Reign Aston, another son named Mason and a daughter named Penelope. What is her secret to finding such great names?

"I'm never certain [with names] until they're born," she told People, explaining that she had been thinking of the name Reign with both of her other kids.
