Which means they're famous for being famous.

Re: North West?

It will be hilarious if she ever books a flight with South West Airlines. They will think she is trolling them.

I think the name is quirky and nice!

I await her inevitable autobiography titled "North, by North West"
If someone writes an article about celebrity babies with weird names, her section can be called The North West Passage.
Some people have said that's a new name for Kim's, um... birth canal.

Not that I give a care what Kim Kardashian does, but it's right there all over the headlines on the net. If the surname of your child's father was West, would you really name your daughter North (no middle name)? Yes, they really did. Granted, it's better than Apple or Moxie Crimefighter or Blue Ivy, but North West?

They say her nickname will be Nori, but why not just name her Nori in the first place? Or Nora? Nora West sounds like a classy, sexy female character from a Dashiell Hammet detective novel. Maybe Kanye prefers Hitchcock.

Am I tripping, or doesn't Nori mean seaweed in Japanese or Chinese?
The question is what nickname will other kids come up with?

Now I'm not a parent but should I ever have children I wouldn't want to saddle them with some bizzare name. I feel sorry for the poor kids who have to live with these names because their parents thought it would be cool. What happened to names like Anna, James, Susan, William etc...

It's at times like this that the thought of requiring a license to procreate doesn't sound like a half bad idea. Unfortunately, the Kardies would probably find a way to acquire one.

Agreed... I'm all for the American dream and the concept that anyone can make it in this nation... but people like them make me briefly get why some poor people would want to pick up a gun and go after the rich.

Re: North West?

On the bright side if this one spazzes out, and decides to spell her name with a symbol, it's not going to be completely banana pants incomprehensible.

Re: North West?

Yeah, I imagine the "gimmick" appeal of the name will get old quick for the little girl and apparently she has no middle name. I always favored classic vintage names for girls and those names are making a comeback--Beatrice Elizabeth was my favorite, but names like Cordelia, Winnifred, (Winnie or Freddie), Nora, Vivian, or Margaret (Meg) were also favorites of mine.

Actually, it may not be that tough on celebrities' kids to have weird names, since they probably go to private school with other celebrities' kids who also have weird names.

Oh, and did I mention upthread that the Kardashians are famous for being famous? One could also say they're today's version of the Gabor sisters -- only without the talent.

Their stepdaddy won a gold medal.

It's a good start.

As someone with an unusual name that lends itself easily to nicknames, it's honestly not that bad. I remember not liking it briefly when I was *really* young, and I've loved it since then. People remember my name easily and it was nice not being one of three Jennifers or something in class. My parents didn't give me a middle name either and while I've gotten plenty of comments on that, it's not something that's gotten old or I've ever been unhappy about.

Everyone's experiences are different, but it's not an impossible name to adjust to considering she'll grow up in a different social circle anyway.
