We've Been Pronouncing Khloé Kardashian's Name Wrong All This Time

We've Been Pronouncing Khloé Kardashian's Name Wrong All This Time

Consider yourself a Keeping Up With The Kardashians super-fan? Clued up on everything, Kim, Kylie, Kourtney, Kendall and Khloé?

Well, we thought we were, too, until we discovered that we've been pronouncing Koko's name wrong for over a decade.

Yep, we know what you're thinking, how many ways can there really be to pronounce the name Khloé?

But, as Bravo favourite Andy Cohen declared this week during a TV interview, the middle Kardashian sister actually is actually meant to go by a different pronunciation to what you're expecting.

He explains here:

Announcing the Kris Jenner verified information as he appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Andy said that rather than 'Khlo-ee', she's really meant to be called 'Khlo-ay,' with an emphasis on the second syllable of her name.

"We've all been pronouncing her name wrong this whole time," he explained on the show. "It's Khlo-AY. Khlo-ay is the name.

"There's a little accent over the name."

Yep, it's Khlo-ay Kardashian (

Real Housewives and Below Deck producer Andy said the pronunciation was confirmed to him when he met Khloé and the rest of the KUWTK clan recently.

"I walked in and I go, 'Khlo-ay', and the other women go 'Excuse me?' And Kris said, 'Yeah, that's actually really how it's pronounced.'"

He added: "There's a little thing on top of the name. Why am I the only one that got that one? I got the memo."

Reacting to the conversation, it's safe to say fans were shook by the news.

Fans couldn't believe what they were hearing (
Kardashian fans were trying to get their heads around it all (

"Wtf is this I'm hearing that Khloe Kardashians name is supposed to be pronounced "khlo-AY" id be damned...," wrote one on social media.

While another penned: "Wait a minute... we've ALL been pronouncing Khloe Kardashian's name WRONG!! It's KLO-AY, not KLO-EE?! #FallonTonight".

It's safe to say that while Khloé's name may officially be pronounced Khlo-ay, none of her sisters call her that on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

In fact, that would probably explain why they seemed so surprised when Andy turned up and pulled the correct pronunciation out of his sleeve.

People have been quick to notice that even the Kardashians are getting it wrong (

"If @khloekardashian name is really pronounced Khlo-ay then why has every one of her family members continued to call her that on the show," one fan wrote after hearing Andy's newsflash.

They have a point - even Khloé says it wrong...

Fair play to Andy for getting it right and all, but if Khlo-ee is good enough for Koko, it's good enough for us!
