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.

They really really would have been better off using Star for their so-called logic. Or Comet. Or Black Hole. Ok not black hole but if I didnt say it some else would have.

You all know good and well these idiots did not come up with something sentimental. These two don't think like that. Kim was dead set on having a directional name hence her choice, Easton, if it was a boy. What would've been the sentiment behind the name Easton, TMZ? Absolutely none. You all really need to quit doing their bidding. "Makes you feel bad for mocking it, right?" Give me a break.

No, it doesn't. That's like getting a crazy tattoo and coming up with all kinds of meanings to make it look better while being asked about it, when it's really just a crazy tattoo that you obviously regret getting.

I think the joke is on us. We're the lil kittens and kim is tossing out lil toys for us to play with while she figures out the multi million $ plan to reveal the true baby details.

Poor kid will be so bullied at school for that ridiculous name. Now I know why cousins shouldn't marry.

And I know khloe and kourt think that name is really stupid. If kim has any inkling of a brain cell she will change the name. Typical kanye to confuse brilliance for weirdness.

Kim is not that deep-quit playin'. That was all Kanye's fake philosophical azz. Either way they both need to stop with the "We're so deep, you can't understand" s.h.e.n.a.n.i.g.a.n.s -gtfoh

Grannypimp still not getting the money she expected for the photo? Guess she's holding off for her show.


It's amazing how not 1 leaked photo of this baby. The Kardashians who 'intensionally leak' everything. Nothing from no one.


Man, they are pimping this little innocent kid out for everything she's worth.
