North West? Kim & Kanye named the baby North West!

North West? Kim & Kanye named the baby North West!

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

After Kim Kardashian gave birth to her baby publicity-stunt, let’s just call this what it is, everyone just assumed that Kim and Kanye West would give her a name that begins with the letter K because it’s the only letter Kim knows. If you asked Kim to recite the alphabet, she’d just repeat the letter K twenty-six times. If she took on Helen Keller in a spelling bee, she’d lose. Anyway, turns out Kim didn’t give her daughter a name that begins with K, because she went with something far worse: North West. Oh gawd, they’re naming their baby girl North West. Via HuffPo

According to reports from TMZ and People, the pair have named their baby girl North West. Though rumors of the directional name surfaced in March, they were swiftly denied by Kardashian. An inside source confirmed the baby name news to People while TMZ got a hold of the newborn’s Cedars-Sinai hospital birth certificate, which allegedly bears the name North West.

I like to think they came up with it like this…

Kim: Hey, Kanye, have you ever noticed your last name is a direction?
Kanye: Yeah that’s great, have you seen the keys to my escape pod?
Kim: We should name our baby North West. That’ll buy us a few weeks of coverage.
Kanye: That’s nice. So listen, if it sounds like I’m taking off in a jet for Paris, it’s because I am. FREEDOM! (*Blasts off*)
Kim: Oh North West, you’re going to bring me so much attention.
