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 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??

Nope, doesn't make me feel bad for mocking it. Just because their kid is named after a terrible Elijah Wood flick from the mid-nineties and happens to be the "high point" of their relationship, doesn't make it any better. For these two, the high point of their relationship was not putting on a condom?

If North is their highest point together as a couple...it's only downhill from there.

Out of all the pretty names out there for a girl and they named her North!? I wanted to be different when naming my babies. I love all their names and it is something you don't really hear all the time. They all have good full names something that I can be proud of.North that's not a name!! Give that baby a good name something she can live with the rest of her life.
