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.

Just another ignorant black naming his child a ridiculous name. No news here.

Yes it's a goofy name but Gweneth still wins for the dumbest kid name ever! Apple, seriously! I was sure she was going to have 2 more kids and name them Grape and Banana to complete the whole fruit basket!

While you have your Denzel Washingtons and Morgan Freemans infusing respect and integrity into the black community, you have an idiot like Kanye destroying that in one fell swoop. Thanks Kanye! You just set blacks back another hundred years!

North( South East) West , What a shame - should have given her a middle name - WTF were you two dumb asses thinking the sun comes up in the east and sets in the west by the way - East sounds better than North - you prob never paid attention in class to learn that - you both are so dumb

Nobody can top Gweneth for stupid kid naming. Apple, I excepted her to have 2 more kids and name them Grape and Banana.

Kim publicly giggled that she did not really appreciate North for a name, but she did like Easton which would have been a much prettier name for a girl. If baby had been a boy, he would have been able to handle the name North. You need to be tough to handle North.
My theory is this.
Kim agreed??settled with Kanye...North is an "awesome" name, just so baby did not have Donda as a middle name...Kaidence Donda West?? Not.
Easton "Kardashian" West. No way Kanye was letting this was happen either.
If North is such a great name, "why is she not being called by her name??" What's the point?
When you settle for less, you always get less than you settled for.
Kanye will be happy when he gets Kim away from her public life - raising his family, no different at all than what Kris's Humphries wanted for them. And like Kris said, in a few years from now, everyone will forget about her.
Too late now. We'll just wait and see.

baby is the pinnacle 'cause they will be splitting up real soon; there will be no wedding, Kim will never lose the weight she wants to and Kanye will go on tour and that is that. the end.

I think it is a nice name. My name translates in Spanish as "pretty"--now how indulgent is that? Kids will think it is an interesting name--at least it can't easily be rhymed with a body part or a sex act!

Kim giggled publicly that North wasn't a name on the list.- (I personally think a boy would handle the name North much better and Easton would have been a pretty name for a girl.)
My theory is someone told Kanye that North is an "awesome" name, just so the baby didn't have to have Donda anywhere in her name. Kaidence Donda West? Not likely. Notice no _____"Kardashian" West either.
If they like the name North so much, then why isn't she being called North? What's the point.
I think before long Kim will disappear from her public life with "Not America"s Baby" to raise Kanye's children. Just like Kris Humpfries wanted. I think he said "in a few years no one will remember you."
"The minute you settle for less than you deserve, you get less than you settled for"

This poor, unfortunate child!! Anyone named "North West" will never be CEO or president of anything!! She will be mocked and teased so badly that, in 20 years, she will either be on a street corner, a stripper pole, or in rehab! Thank God she was born into money or this kid wouldn't stand a chance! Why are selfish egomaniacs like this even allowed to have kids??
