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.

This is what happens when two lame, uneducated, ghetto pigs reproduce. Not only will this baby be super ugly, will have inherited an IQ under 80. How stupid is KK to want a baby with Kanye's ugly genes and his ghetto mentality?

smh people really need to think about what they are naming their children. These dumb ass names are what kids are going to have to live with until they are emancipated and can change it. That's a long time from birth. I would hate my parents if they named me Kyd, Apple, Jermajesty, and north west. idiots, they are all a bunch of idiots!

I think Easton West would have been better... If you want to go the pun route. It's still a direction and it doesn't matter their interpretation of the name, the majority of people will interpret it.

According to" THE STAR" mag. Kim & her mother were very demanding & rude at the hospital. Even made some nurses cry. Other tab, claims Kim was no trouble. SO what's the truth? If STAR has lied, then it should be illegal & they should be sued for defamation.How can this information be verified? Do the K.s go along with this,for the sake of sensationalism & attention? Yet they sued
ELLEN KARDASHIAN for revealing their father's journals, that trashed their mother. Like to hear from any staff at the hospital? Did the STAR lie????

This is a TMZ prank everyone. Kim and Kanye are really married and the baby's name is Kimye. North West is a TMZ prank.

It really doesn't matter how stupid the name is. She will grow up with other celebrity babies with equally crazy names. She will fit right in.

I think they are just showing how stupid the press in to believe everything and publish it. . I bet her name isn't North at all. They probably want the name to be released on their TV show.
