The Secret’s Out

The rumor that Kanye and Kim were planning to name their daughter North West is one that has been around for awhile. Along with it was a second rumor, that Kim’s baby girl would follow in the family tradition of having a “K” first name, like her mama Kim, and other family members Kourtney, Khloe, Kendall, Kylie and Kris, however, that rumor proved to be false as well.

Want another rumor that proved to be false? It’s been rumored since Kim got pregnant that the baby would be named after Kanye’s mother Donda, who passed away in 2007 following complications from plastic surgery. However, that rumor has also been proven false, since TMZ obtained the baby’s birth certificate. Her middle name? Nothing. As in, she doesn’t have one. North. West. That’s it.

What Does It Mean?

So what does Kim and Kanye’s baby girl’s name actually mean? Is it just a cute (or crazy, depending on who you ask) play on words? Sources close to the couple say that the name actually has a very sweet and well thought out meaning. Rumor has it that the couple named their daughter North because “north is the highest power.”

“North is the most high. There is nothing higher than North,” explains a source close to the couple. “And, when it comes to the stars, the sun rises in the East and sets in the West. Kim and Kanye look at her as being their highest point together,” says a source. “Nothing is more special than North. Kim keeps saying, ‘She is our North Star.'”

What Does Everyone Think?

Some critics have weighed in, saying that Kim and Kanye’s baby name is “crazy,” “dumb,” and “setting the kid up for disaster.” But, it’s common knowledge that celebs live in a different world than the rest of us, and they can name their kids all sorts of crazy things. So, what does new grandma Kris Jenner think of baby Nori’s name? “I think it’s great. Why not?” she said of little North West during an interview with Fox 4 News in Dallas. “That’s what’s going on these days, lots of creative names.”
