Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have admittedly had trouble picking out a name for their second child…but Lamar Odom has a suggestion for them! The ex-NBA star wants the famous couple to name their son after him, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned — here’s why.
Is North West’s new sibling going to named after Khloe Kardashian’s husband!? From his hospital bed, Lamar Odom has told Khloe why he thinks ‘Lamar’ would be a perfect name for her soon-to-be-born nephew — but will Kim Kardashian, 35, and Kanye West, 38, agree?
“Lamar told Khloe to tell Kim to name her son Lamar!” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He explained to Khloe that the name symbolizes strength and courage. He also told her that the name is synonymous with being brave and a fighter, just like he is. He was dead serious, too, and he held Khloe’s arm while he told her this.”
The 31-year-old told her hubby she would give Kim the message, according to our source, but so far, there’s no details about what Kim and Kanye have to say about the whole thing. However, the couple need all the baby name suggestions they can get…because they’re having trouble agreeing on one themselves!
During her interview with Ellen DeGeneres in September, Kim admitted to liking the name ‘Easton’ for her unborn son, but also revealed that her husband wasn’t so on board with that choice. As HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY reported, Yeezy is feeling the moniker ‘Nazareth.’ “It’s the childhood home of Kanye’s savior, Jesus,” our source explained. “In Israel, the city is ancient and historical, and he loves the fact that it is the epitome of spirituality and holiness”
Hmm…well the baby is due in less than two months, so these two better get deciding on the name! The reality star just celebrated her Beverly Hills Troops-themed baby shower over the weekend, which had been postponed for a week due to Lamar’s hospitalization. Time is ticking!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Kim should name her baby Lamar?
