    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. :vulcan: 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. :lol:

    Am I tripping, or doesn't Nori mean seaweed in Japanese or Chinese?

    I don't think it's great, but it's not horrible either. I wish they'd stop reporting that they are going to call her Nori "for short" though, because it's not actually shorter. They need to just say it's a nickname.

    I quite like it! I prefer a nickname to develop with time, maybe - but North is good.

    Considering I probably know less about either parent than anyone else on here, I like it.

    Just needs a brother called South for the ulitmate in sibling rivalry.

    North West. Hi, my name is North West.

    No, still not liking it. It's not a good combination and it's boring on its own.

    Bill Maher had a good joke about North West. He said something like if the kid is ever on a casting call in the future, it will give new meaning to them saying "We're going to go in a different direction."

    Tell me why any of us care what Kim and West does? Just why are these people so special? I don't get it. :wtf:

    If someone writes an article about celebrity babies with weird names, her section can be called The North West Passage.

    I was hoping they were going to name her Wylde.

    ^ The kid might grow up and decide she doesn't want any part of the entertainment biz. So she might want a way out. She'll get a bunch of her friends together and form...an escape club. ;)

    :guffaw: :guffaw:

    I hereby drop all objections to this child's name, just because of that post. :techman:

    Beat me to it! :rommie:

    And yes, "Nora West" would be a hundred times better. Oh well, at least she's not "Apple" or "Kal-El". :rolleyes:

    Oh God. I forgot about Nicolas Cage naming his kid Kal-El. So is his son Kal-El Cage or Kal-El Coppola? That is the real family name.

    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!
