It’s been almost a week since Kanye West and his babymama welcomed the birth of their baby daughter and today — at last — we learn what the couple have decided to name the little girl. Rumors have been swirling since before the baby girl was born that she would be named something starting with a K (in honor of her mother and her mother’s wretched family) … some even suggested that the girl would be named KimYe which is a mixture of her parents’ first names. Others suggested that Kanye’s daughter might be named in honor of his late mother Donda … which, to be honest, is what I thought was going to happen as well. It turns out that the little girl has neither been named KimYe nor Donda … in fact, her name is so out there, I thought it was a joke when I first heard it. Apparently, it’s no joke. TMZ reports that they’ve seen the newborn girl’s birth certificate and her name is …
What do Kim Kardashian’s new baby and the Space Needle have in common? They’re both NORTH WEST … TMZ has learned. Seriously, that’s the kid’s name … at least according to the birth certificate from Cedars-Sinai hospital. There were rumors floating around a few months ago that Kim and Kanye West might give the baby a directional name … but who thought they would actually go through with it? Congratulations little girl.
LMAOOOOO!!! This is … dumb. Ugh, as if this poor little girl didn’t have enough to deal with having been born from that family who shall not be named … now she has to deal with a name like North West?! OY! I guess if Gwyneth Paltrow can name her daughter Apple and Nicolas Cage can name his son Kal-El, I guess Kanye West had to outdo them both and name his precious baby girl NORTH WEST! No word on if North has a middle name or a hyphenated last name … but no matter, she will forever be saddled with the very simple, very odd name North West.
So … thoughts?
PS: The image above is a sculpture created by pop culture artist Daniel Edwards who was inspired by the pregnancies of Kanye’s babymama and Kate Middleton … it’s titled Baby Kimye And The Royal Heir. I guess even Edwards was erroneously convinced of the baby’s name :/
