After famously announcing her pregnancy earlier this year on Saturday Night Live, Cardi B welcomed a baby girl named Kulture Kiari Cephus on July 10. The 25-year-old rapper shared the news on Instagram with a striking shot of herself surrounded by flowers and cradling her baby bump. Kulture is Cardi's first child with her husband, 26-year-old Migos rapper Offset, and the baby's name seems to be heavily inspired by him.
Let's break this down: Kulture's middle and last name are directly taken from Offset's birth name, Kiari Kendrell Cephus. Apart from its inherent meaning, the first name may have been inspired by the Migos albums Culture and Culture II, released in 2017 and 2018 respectively.
As for the reason Kulture's name is spelled with a "K" as opposed to the usual "C," it might have something to do with Offset's other children. The rapper has three children from three previous relationships: Jordan, Kody, and Kalea Marie. With his first child being the exception, Offset may have wanted to continue the "K" name trend for his children. We can think of another famous family who might have had a similar idea . . .
