Reality star Kim Kardashian finally had her baby five days ago - almost a month premature. Despite initial reports that Kim would follow the trend started by her family and give her baby a name beginning with the letter "K," TMZ is reporting that the couple has settled on the name "North," making the infant's full name "North West."
Khloe, Kourtney, Kendall, Kylie, and Kris may be disappointed that Kim didn't name her baby "Kaidence," as had been rumored, but also interesting is the infant's lack of middle name. A nurse at Los Angeles' Cedars Sinai Hospital told the press the child would be named Donda, in honor of Kanye West's late mother, Donda. West is the father of the child.
According to USWeekly, the couple have nicknamed their child "Nori" for short; the nickname is a mere one letter shorter than the child's actual name.
Twitter was ablaze with jokes and jabs after reports of the baby's name leaked; one user suggested naming the new child's autobiography "North by North West" after Alfred Hitchcock's 1959 cult classic.
North West joins a fraternity of oddly named celebrtity babies, including Blue Ivy Carter, Moon Unit Zappa, and Fifi Trixibelle Geldof.
