Kim and Kanye shocked the world when they revealed they named their baby girl North West, but an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY why the couple chose this particular unique name.
Kanye West brought his clever way with words to his own baby girl’s name, and chose the moniker North West. So why did he and girlfriend Kim Kardashian decide on such an unconventional name, and not a “K” name, or the name Donda in honor of his mom, Donda West?
North West — Why Kim & Kanye Chose The Moniker
Kanye is known for his witty rhymes and love of art, so it’s no surprise he wanted to bring his creativity to his own baby’s name. A source close to the rapper tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY:
It’s what Kanye wanted to name his child, no matter if it was a boy or a girl. Kim thought it was an interesting name too, and they went with it. They didn’t want their child to have a name everybody else already has; they wanted something creative and fun, and North it is!
The Black Skinhead rapper also has a reputation of being egocentric, so did he name his baby girl North to imply the North Star? Because her parents are such superstars? Not exactly. The insider says:
Kanye doesn’t think he’s a star, but he thinks his little girl is — and her name, North, points in that direction.”
The source also adds that Kanye will explain the meaning behind the name in his own time.
Kim Kardashian & Kanye West’s Birth Certificate Revealed
Kim and Kanye’s baby name was officially revealed when their baby’s birth certificate was released on June 21. The document says that the baby girl’s name is North West, with no middle name. Baby North’s birth certificate confirms that she was born at 5:34 A.M. on June 15, and was signed just by mom Kim.
At least she will go by the nickname Nori, which doesn’t have such an odd connotation.
