Stormi Webster — the name Kylie Jenner gave the baby girl she and Travis Scott welcomed on Feb. 1 — is different, sure, but it also fits in quite well with the other unique Kardashian baby names. (Also known collectively as the future cast of Keeping Up With the Kardashians: The Next Generation.)

The reality TV family is growing larger by the month as of late, with Khloé Kardashian expected to add one more to the group in the spring. Refresh your memory of what each kid is named and why with our handy list.

Stormi Webster

Parents: Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott
Born: Feb. 1, 2018

Although the youngest Kardashian-Jenner sister has yet to share her reasons for choosing the name Stormi, baby name expert and Baby Name Wizard author Laura Wattenberg tells Yahoo Entertainment that it’s a “surprisingly retro name choice.”

Mason Dash Disick

Parents: Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick
Born: Dec. 14, 2009

Kourtney has explained that Mason was an easy choice for her son. “The first time I started looking at baby names, Mason was the only one I liked,” she told Life & Style in January 2010. “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 — stoneworker. 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.”

Kourtney also dismissed the suggestion that “Dash” was included in the baby’s name in honor of her business venture. “Dash is not for my clothing store, as some people have suggested online,” said Kourtney. “That would be stupid. Dash is short for Kardashian, and it was my father’s nickname.”

Penelope Scotland Disick

Parents: Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick
Born: July 8, 2012

Kris Jenner was obviously too proud of her newborn granddaughter to keep quiet about how she ended up with her name. As Jenner told E! News the month Penelope was born, Kourtney and Scott just liked the moniker. Kris’s mom was the one who suggested “Scotland.”

North West

Parents: Kim and Kanye West
Born: June 15, 2013

My cutie!

Nori, as North is nicknamed, would have been called something else, if not for the musician Pharrell and Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour. “I remember this is actually where we decided, finally, on North as a name for our baby girl,” Kim dished to British GQ at New York City’s Mercer Hotel in October 2014. “It was a rumor in the press and we’d never really considered it, seriously, at all, but Kanye and I were having lunch right over there at that table about a year ago and Pharrell came over to us and said, ‘Oh, my God, are you guys really going to call your daughter North? That is the best name.’ I said, ‘No we’re not, that’s just a rumor.’ Then a little while later, Anna Wintour came over and asked the same thing. She told us ‘North is a genius name.’ Kanye and I looked at one another and just laughed. I guess at that point it sort of stuck.”

Reign Aston Disick

Parents: Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick
Born: Dec. 14, 2014

Reign (or Rain) was always going to be the name of someone in the Kardashian family, as Kourtney told People in April 2015. “I actually had the name on our list with Mason,” she said. “Then with Penelope, I had it on the list but spelled R-A-I-N.” Kourtney considered Rain again for her third child, which she expected to be a girl, and ended up using Reign when it was a boy.

Saint West

Parents: Kim and Kanye West
Born: Dec. 5, 2015

Happy Holidays

This one is pretty obvious, particularly since Kim struggled with her first pregnancy and to become pregnant again. A Kardashian insider told Us Weekly a month before the baby was born that Kimye were referring to him as “Saint,” because he was a miracle baby.

Dream Renée Kardashian

Parents: Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna
Born: Nov. 10, 2016

Happy 1st Birthday Dreamy ☺️⭐️

A post shared by Blac Chyna (@blacchyna) on Nov 10, 2017 at 12:11pm PST

Blac, born Angela Renée White, gave her Kardashian offspring her middle name. Rob chose his baby girl’s first name, according to Us Weekly just after she was born. “Dream was Rob’s favorite name because it was always his dream to have a baby,” a source told the magazine.

Chicago West

Parents: Kim and Kanye West
Born: Jan. 15, 2018

The non-Kardashian side of Chicago’s family has deep roots in the city for which she’s named. Kanye grew up there, with his late mother Donda by his side, and has rapped about his “Chi-town.” In fact, we got an inkling of just how important the city continues to be to the rapper when he met with President-elect Donald Trump to talk about the problem of violence in Chicago in December 2016.

Interestingly, none of the littlest Kardashians have a first name that begins with a “K,” the pattern their parents followed when naming the girls — Kourtney, Kim, Khloé, Kendall, and Kylie — in the family. At least none yet…
