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.

"North West Is Non-Directional"
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
"North West" is nothing else but directional.
There is no other meaning for "North" or for "West" other than those are directions.

I am so sick of these kardashian's the whole family has dollar signs coming out of their eyes,ears ect. especially chris and kim . What are they famous for I say to myself and can't find a reason so I say NOTHING!! If people would stop making such a big deal over them it'll stop enough is enough. Their reality show is really not real it's all fake so wake up people,

The baby's name is North, and they'll call her Nori for short.
Nori is:
1) a type of edible seaweed
2) a dwarf from The Hobbit

Well thought out.

Oh I can believe this kid is going to be non-directional. Just like her parents as clueless as a pair of lab rats. Poor thing is going to be made fun of all her life due to that stupid name and her dumb parents.

No it's a freaking horrible name. If your gonna call her "Nori" then name her that. I hate these two and can't wait for the day they break up. They may marry but I can assure you it's not forever.
