Kim & Kanye

North West Is Non-Directional

6/24/2013 5:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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?

It's OK to admit a mistake & change the kids name now.

The north star or Polaris is also called the bright and morning star and is used in the Bible to refer to Lucifer in some translations. The north is the place where the gods gathered. Since it is purported that Kanye and now even Kim are in the Illuminati, maybe this name is a nod to that affiliation.

There really is no highest star in the sky because they universe is infinite. If they just wanted to name her after a star, they could have named her Stella. There is even Star Jones. North is the weirdest name. It is even hard to say it. What will the Chinese end up calling her? Probably Nor.

so let's just say they make it as a couple for another few years...and have another baby together...what name then? I mean if they think "nothing is higher then North" then what message are they sending to child #2? And such a burden for the child to carry.."my name means nothing is better then me".....passing on daddy's ego

Still trying to spin this into the 'happy couple' not working. They can't even fake looking happpy.

West never signed the the hospital birth certificate. Why not?

They are doing way to much overkill on this PR, spin and hype. If they were truly happy this wouldn't need to be done.

A bad publicity stunt that backfired. Now it's an innocent little baby being used. Kardashians will do and use anything for attention and money.

No kinda makes me puke. An angry gay, self absorbed man and his fat, phony, adulteress whore have a child and that is the pinnacle of their relationship, Gag Me. These two are as fake as anything and they are simply trying to fgiure out how to explaoit this pathetic child for moneytary gain, just like everything else KRAPTRASHIAN. This kid is just another pitiful reason for these two low lofie humans to stay in the media. Give it a week or so and that loser Kanye will start to disappear under the guise of performing.

Just another Kardashian spin. They saw the reaction to the name (which will cause laughter everywhere the kid goes for the next few decades) was negative, so they are trying out new versions of the story, hoping one version will make us feel they are less stupid. The K Klan has done this again and again. They are such liars. Poor little Ka-Ching! Vatikan City Kardashian West.... She's stuck with them for the next 18 years.

"Sources close to K & K tell TMZ" - why don't you just fess up and say the Queen of f''ing Everything told us this.

Maybe we need to read the Kardashian Kode. If the birth of this child us the pinnacle of their relationship, the Kode Book tells us this means it's all downhill from here. Which we pretty much suspected anyway.

Absolutely NO surprise to hear that this couple's best effort -the highlight point of their relationship - is naming their baby "North". Pretty much flags where-to for the rest of their relationship (but everyone knew it wouldn't last, pretty surprising it's still going on, to be fair) ....

She will be fat, clingy, try-hard, and boring (because she has no personality); he will be stand-offish, bored, increasingly absent (because he has no personality, and no particular reason to buy into her clingy cr*p - HE is not under the gun for "reality tv relationships" - she is. So he won't care about anything other than her and family will be trying to ruin his life, and he won't be signing up to that at all.

Mark my words.

Rob's because they are so self-obsessed. Their baby is no better or more important than a baby born on the street. It's all about how can we use this baby to make money.

Well, let's just say that I can somehow....i mean somehow understand the "north" inspirational thing, although i would rather definitely pick a more "rational" inspirational name like " faith, willow, alma, etc" but when you give such name "North" when your family name is already West....the all inspirational point just comes flat...there is not point there.
The girl will be laughed at, full stop.

and as I said from the start i am convinced that they are saving the real name for later on. If i am not wrong you have up to six months to change the name on the birth certificate.
