So many meanings rolled into one perfect name…
OMG. So, Khai…I love it. But immediately, I was like, “What’s the meaning behind it???” So my Google search began.
According to an ever-in-the-know TMZ source, the name is a tribute to Gigi’s paternal grandmother whose name was Khairia.
We love a heartfelt family connection!!!
But what makes it even more perfectly perfect is that in Arabic, “Khai” translates to “crowned.” And as any true Directioner knows, Zayn’s last name, Malik, means “King” in Arabic.
So basically, their daughter’s name translates to “crowned King.”
A family connection, an Arabic connection, and a royal meaning all rolled into ONE?! I’d say Gigi and Zayn totally nailed it with this name.
Sending love to baby Khai and her fam!!! We know you’ll be just as great as your name suggests, queen!!! 💖💖💖
