Kim Kardashian and Kanye West: The story behind North West’s name

See also

Kim Kardashian gave birth to a baby girl five weeks early. Journalists speculated what Kim and Kanye would name the baby and many sources began leaking information. Looks like none of them were right because Kardashian and West decided to name the baby girl North West.

If you are in disbelief, here is a copy of the birth certificate.

So how on earth did baby girl Kardashian West end up with the name North?

Kim and Kanye are calling the little West “Nori” for short. “Nori” could be linked to Kim and Kanye's middle names. Kim’s middle name is Noel and Kanye’s middle name is Omari. If you put them together you get “Nori.”

The name North should not come as too much of a shock to Kanye and Kim fans. Back in March Kayne The Sun reported that West had a list of baby names and North was right at the top because he thought it sounded “good with his surname.” Kardashian shot that name down a week later on “The Tonight Show.”

Looks like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West changed their minds. They also left out one important detail; North has no middle name.

What do you think about Kim and Kanye naming their baby North West?
