Wowzers—it looks like we (and probably a good many other people) were wrong when we predicted that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s baby had a 99.9999 percent chance of having a name that began with the letter K.
According to TMZ, the baby girl’s name is…
…North. North West.
And no, it’s not a joke.
TMZ says they got the information from little North’s birth certificate from the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she was born; bizarrely, though, we probably should have seen something like this coming. Jay Leno noted when Kim appeared on The Tonight Show back in March that he’d been hearing that Kanye liked the name “North.” Kim denied it at the time, but followed it up by saying that she liked the name “Easton”:
Sooooo there’s that.
No word on whether the happy new parents did in fact end up using Kanye’s mother’s name, Donda, for North’s middle name, but it would be kind of a nice tribute to her if they did.
Tell us: Is “North” the weirdest celeb baby name you’ve ever heard? If not, who do you think wins that particular prize?
