Kim Kardashian Baby Nickname

Kim and Kanye went in a different direction than expected when they named their baby girl North, but sources say they plan to call her Nori. It reminds us of Suri — does that make it better?

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s baby girl is officially named North — as in, North West — but at least they have a cuter nickname picked out for their daughter.

Kim Kardashian & Kanye West’s Baby Nickname

Even though initial reports said that Kimye’s baby’s name would start with a “K” — Kaidence Donda West was thrown around — the name on their birth certificate is North West, according to TMZ.

But fear not, because the celeb couple has a cuter nickname picked out for their baby girl. A source tells E! News:

They will call her Nori for short!

Nori will definitely be a less confusing monokier, especially when Kim and Kanye’s baby gets old enough to drive or ask for directions.

Baby North West Joins Weird Celeb Kids Name Club

North West may not be a typical baby name, but it seems tame compared to some other celebrity kids in Hollywood; Blue Ivy Carter, Pilot Inspektor LeeBear Blu Jarecki and Apple Martin.

The nickname “Nori” also reminds us of another celebrity kid — Suri Cruise. Was the nickname inspired by Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes‘ kid? (Or maybe the lovable Finding Nemo character Dory.)

We just can’t wait for baby North to be old enough to get tatted up. We’re thinking a compass with the needle pointed Northwest. Or maybe the state of Washington or Oregon. A NORTH by North West clothing line, anyone?

What do YOU think of the nickname Nori, HollyMoms? Do you think it’s better than North, or is it all ridiculous? Sound off in the comments below!
