Plus, Kim’s brother, Rob Kardashian, was also named for their father. So little baby West has a sweet connection to his uncle, who will surely be doting on his nephew, just as he was with all his sisters’ other children. Maybe the arrival of Kim’s second child will be the catalyst to finally get Rob to come out of hiding; he’ll join his family in this joyous celebration — how could he resist seeing such a sweet little face with his same name?

We’re dying to know what Kim and Kanye picked for baby West’s first name! We’ve been running the possibilities through our minds, and it really could be anything.
