Kim & Kanye

North West Is Non-Directional

Kim Kardashian
and Kanye West were not inspired by a compass when they named their kid North ... fact is, the name's more inspirational than directional.

Sources close to K & K tell TMZ  ... they chose the name North because they see it as a metaphor for "up", telling friends, "What's North of North? Nothing."  Translation ... nothing better.

We're told the duo believes baby North is their highest point together as a couple ... the pinnacle of the relationship ... and they consider her their "North Star."

Kinda sweet. Almost makes ya feel bad for mocking it, right?

Almost.

A name, any name, is not going to make you a better person or have a happier life than any other. These people are just self-indulgent fools and the child will probably just be another messed up, drug-addicted Calabasas brat!

Now that sounds much cuter. They should have the birth certificate changed to give her the middle name Star. North by itself just doesn't sound good.

I hope these two stay together forever, thus keeping their poisonous ways away from others.

B S! they thougth putting this spin on giving their daughter a compus direction name would sound better. This sounds just as bad. However I am surprised they didn't use the Silent K in spelling "Knorth West", OR maybe they just didn't think of it.

I feel sorry for that kid, having two idiot parents like that. Hopefully dumb won't get any dumber.

Like true NARCISSISTs... They are trying to change the meaning of a directional point to fit their self-fulfilling agendas... and provide a clever (or not so much) name for their baby.

Her nick name will be Nori. A nickname already?

I think Kim feels this is just hilarious. She must be laughing her dumb a$$ off and making a mockery of her own child. This is the dumbest prank I have ever seen anyone play on their self, and to play this kind of game with a baby is crazy as hell.
