Kim & Kanye

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.

That is one of the STUPIDEST things I've ever heard!!!!! These are 2 of the dumbest f*cks on the planet. But, you cant really believe 80% of what TMZ prints anyway so, whatever.

"North" yeah that is nice. Welp in the end I guess it doesn't matter what others think of the child's name because (it just doesn't) lol. I bet they will just soak it all in over a nice hot bath using Pilgrim Soap Company products, the good stuff. Famous people.

I guess they couldn't decide which name by turning a compass because each time the f*cking needle pointed in the same direction...

The truth is that North West airlines is coming back and they were the highest bidder for the naming rights.

Wow, a lot of hate here. Is it just me that adore Kanye as a producer/artist and think Kim is absolutely fine?

Gyneth had a better explination for using Alpple and I like it/ooking at a sweet baby reminded her of an apple. But this name had to be created by kanye, because it's as dumb as he is. Kim your time is numbered, can't wait to see how long this union lasts. Neither of you two will be good parents,or role models. Nannies will be raising your kid. The only time I see you with your baby is for photo's.
we all know money is your baby!

These people are so concerned about what people think of them it's laughable. What they wear, how they look, bahh. The truth is Kim now owns 1/2 of Kanye's Estate and that's all she cares about. And the baby was named North West because they are both left-of-center w/politics. Kim got the payday she was looking for, time to spend some more money on materialistic items.

Being from the NorthWest myself, I find this to be an insult from these two bafoons!

I smell bs , you'd think that Kim k or kanye would have some type of morality inside them when they named that poor child. I guess now we know they don't.

Bizarre how KIM is looking more & more like Michael Jackson. Wonder if they used the same plastic surgeon? How about a side by side photo?
