In what can only be described as a classic slip of the tongue, Travis Barker, drummer of Blink-182, spilled the beans on the chosen name for his unborn son with Kourtney Kardashian. And everyone is making the same joke about the moniker.

The couple, who got married last year, had been tight-lipped about their baby's name, following the Kardashian tradition of withholding baby names till after their birth – a practice notably demonstrated by Kylie Jenner.

But in a surprising twist, ahead of the baby's Halloween due date, Barker, in conversation with Toby Morse on the One Life One Chance podcast, revealed that their son’s name is inspired by a globally renowned movie boxer. Barker commented, "There was a benefit in Hawaii that we were gonna do, but it’s the week that Rocky’s due.”

Jumping on this breadcrumb of information, Toby added: “Rocky Thirteen Barker,” to which Travis, possibly in the spur of the moment, seemed to affirm the child's entire name with, “Rocky Thirteen Barker!”

Toby praised the selection, deeming it "great", while Travis humorously mused about his son's anticipated entrance into the world: “He’s gonna come out of my wife’s vagina like doing front kicks and push-ups…”

But not everyone is so keen on the name, with many netizens saying it sounds like something you'd call a dog.

One person wrote: "Not a fan of that name sounds too much like a dog name. But not my child not my decision."

Another agreed: "Rocky is a doggies name! But no matter what his name is I'm sure he will be handsome and well spoiled by his siblings and family! [sic]"

In any case, this wouldn't be the first time Travis has shown a fondness for the name Rocky Thirteen. In an interview with his daughter Alabama for GOAT Talk by Complex, he admitted to liking it.

Connecting the dots for fans, he shared, “Rocky George played guitar for Suicidal Tendencies. And 13 is just the greatest number of all time… And Rocky, the greatest boxing movie of all time.” Yet, not everyone was on board with this choice. Alabama expressed her disapproval, stating, “That’s so bad…even he knows it’s bad."

Travis, already a father to Landon, 19, and Alabama, 17, with ex-wife Shanna Moakler, is no stranger to the joys and challenges of parenthood. On the other hand, Kourtney, who has Mason, 13, Penelope, 11, and Reign, 8, with her former boyfriend Scott Disick, has always been in the limelight, inviting fans and critics alike to guess the potential name of her newborn.

Netizens, with their endless creativity, had a field day with the predictions. From whimsical names like "Skull" and "Drumstick" to the playful suggestion of "Blink", fans kept the guessing game spirited. Some even drew inspiration from Travis' previous Instagram comment where he mentioned, “Our son’s name would be Elvis,” referring to their Halloween costume inspired by the film True Romance.

Yet, with the name Rocky Thirteen Barker now seemingly out in the open, the anticipation turns to the baby's arrival. As the world waits for another Kardashian addition, one thing's for sure: This child, with his unique name and powerhouse parents, is already set to make waves.
