The Reason Behind The Name “North West”

Submitted by on June 24, 2013 – 12:46 pmNo Comment

Although it’ll probably be the target of jokes for years to come, that didn’t stop Kanye West and Kim Kardashian from giving their daughter an unusual name. The baby girl, born over a week ago at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, will be known as North West, leaving many wondering why the couple chose such an unusual moniker. According to TMZ:

“…they chose the name North because they see it as a metaphor for ‘up’, telling friends, ‘What’s North of North? Nothing.’ Translation … nothing better.

We’re told the duo believes baby North is their highest point together as a couple … the pinnacle of the relationship … and they consider her their ‘North Star.’”

Wait, what? Stop it. I can’t deal with these celebrities. Fortunately, little North will one day develop her own opinions and grow tired of being the punchline for late night talk show hosts and be able to change her name to something a little more inconspicuous.
