This year has been full of celebrity name based revelations. First came the fact Anne Hathaway wasn't actually called Anne in her private life. Then Katherine Heigl revealed she friends call her something different.

Now, US talk show host Andy Cohen has suggested we've been pronouncing Khloé Kardashian's name wrong this whole time.

During a recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Andy explained he had pronounced the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star's name correctly during a recent visit to her home.

'We've all been pronouncing her name wrong this whole time,' he said on the show. 'Yes, it's Khlo-AY. Khlo-AY is the name, there's a little accent over the name.'

The presenter continued, 'I walked in and I go, "Khloé" and the other women go, 'Excuse me?' and Kris [Jenner] said, 'Yeah, that's actually really how it's pronounced'.

'There's a little thing on top of the name, why am I the only one that got that one? I got the memo.'

Although, it does seem to make sense that the accent would change the pronunciation somewhat, Khloé herself has never spoken out to correct the way people say her name, so we're going to wait to hear it straight from her.

Over to you, Khlo-ee / Khlo-ay.
