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.

Come on, people. We all know that neither of these raging egos has ever been accused of intelligence, so a less than rational explanation for the name choice should not surprise anyone.

AS IF THEY DID NOT THINK THAT PEOPLE WOULD NOT MAKE FUN OF THE NAME. CAN'T YOU PEOPLE WHO NAME YOUR KIDS ODD NAMES THINK ABOUT YOUR KIDS BEING BULLIED OVER THEIR NAME BEFORE YOU PLACE IT ON THE BIRTH CERTIFICATE?

Why are they in hiding? Are they waiting for the kid to "fill out" & become more presentable looking? Are they not getting the "Big MONEY BONANZA." they were counting on? Or is Kim too ashamed? Funny NO ONE knows what is really going on. Reporters? Media? zilch real info~

The Kardashians have become increasingly & noticeably arrogant. Now that they have scammed their millions off of the public, they seem to be "above it all.' Their only use for the public,is to shill more money off of them.The average age of their "fans",is 15 years old.Children who lack good judgement & don't know any better.

Celebrities name these kids the stupidest things..and one day some of these stars wont be stars anymore..and they're kids will have to deal with regular kids with these horrendous names...and Kanye...I wont even go there with him...I loathe him...he is a waste of skin..I read the reports that he was cheating on Kim. Cheating?? Really?? Who else would want him????? that is my rant for the day :)

The name is as stupid as the kids parents. Bad enough that the kid is gonna be as ugly as Kanye and as FAT as Kim but to curse it with such a stupid name is just cruel. Ironaically I could actually see Kim and Kanye trying to figure out what is "North of North" and that brilliant converstion lasting a long time. Dumb and dumber!

PIcture of this baby please

been 11 day since born.

why all this talk about breast feeding and the kids name?

can we pleease see a pic of this baby to confirm there is one. all the free instagram pics kim posted us of her baby in her stomach telling us she is not fat or she is only 150 pounds and now this proud mother cannot send a free instagram of her babay

surely she is not merchandising her baby as a product to sell a picture of it. 11 days since born any new mom would be so proud to send a free twitter pic of their new baby

even reggie bush posted a free pic of new baby

Lawdy Lawdy..what can I say? Plenty..these "celebs" that name these poor babies these insane names should be fined from the state..LOL..when the fame dies, and the new generation has no clue who these people are (and dosen't care) these poor kids are stuck with those names!!! It should be a crime....I like different names..don't get me wrong..but different and down right stupid are two different things. Here Kim is tied down to Kayne for the rest of her life, and that guy is a total tool. He wears me out! I had read that he was supposed to be cheating on Kim or something stupid like that. With who??? I mean really! Who would want him other than Kim? There are some desperate, stupid people out there. Kim has picked some of the dumbest guys on the face of the earth. They stress me out...LOL
