If Kim Kardashian was born in 2015, her name would be Jillian (though in 1990, her name would be the more brand-appropriate Krysta Kardashian). 

If our favorite high-wattage star couple were born today, they would be named Kaleb Pitt and Joanne Jolie. If they were born in 1920, they'd bear the very dapper moniker of Wilmer Pitt and Artie Jolie. 

How do we know all this? No, it isn't access to a flux capacitor—it's an attention-diverting gizmo that we've been playing with for hours.
