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.

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.

I couldn't disagree more! Kanye is a narcissistic, self absorbed, egocentric jerk. Only HE would choose a name like North because there is nothing "higher or better", the same way he feels about himself-"I Am A God". Give me a break! Why does Kim continue to choose these self absorbed creeps? Why did she allow him to choose such an awful name?

This is the stupidest story I have ever read. Mom must be scared that another daughter is going to wind up with a "baby daddy" who is absent all the time. Well, you reap what you sow.

This is the stupidest thing I read all day. I doubt these two even came up with the idea of why call her "North". Either this is all a ruse and the name will change or PMK is out of her fvcking mind and pulling all the strings on this one.
