When it comes to baby names, celebrities can get quite creative. Some include Holly Madison’s daughter, Rainbow Aurora, Levi Johnston’s daughter, Breeze Beretta, and Beyonce and Jay-Z’s daughter, Blue Ivy. But American socialite and diva, Kim Kardashian, with her rapper honey boo boo, Kanye West, recently just shocked America’s tabloids with the release of their daughter’s name: North.

While her name is different, it isn’t all that bad, right? WRONG. The baby’s daddy’s last name is West. Put baby’s first name and last name together and you get…*drum roll please*… North West.


Oh no, the baby is not an airline, my fellow readers. This baby girl was born this year to American socialite and television presence, Kim Kardashians (“Keeping Up with the Kardashians”), and her boyfriend, Kanye West, rapper. According to sources, the baby’s nickname will be “Nori”. North West, also known as Nori. It can’t be all that bad, right?

Think again, my lovely people! In case you do not know, Nori (海苔) is the Japanese name for edible seaweed species of the red alga genus Porphyra, including most notably P. yezoensis and P. tenera (source: Wikipedia)


Surprisingly though, baby North is not the only baby who has a directional name. In fact, there are about 3,500 babies with the same first name, as of July 2013. Along with South, East, and West. Baby North has both North and West already. 😉

On a different note, with two celebrities parents, one of whom is always on the tabloids, the baby most likely will be in the entertainment circle, and in the media’s attention, at least for the first few months, if not years. Baby’s first official outing was publicized not long ago, along with her first pictures. She might be the newest addition to “Keeping Up with the Kardashians”. Who knows?

But thinking on the future side, how do you think baby North will feel in the future with North West as her legal name, and Nori (aka seaweed) as her nickname? On a scale of one to ten, what are the chances that she will legally change her name in the future? Or, will she keep that name and follow her mother into the entertainment circle as yet another Kardashian female, American socialite?

On a personal note, I was hoping that Kimye’s baby would have a name starting with K, going along with the Kardashian line of K’s. In fact, I really liked the name “Kaidence”. It’s different, unique, and starts with K. Hmm, maybe I’ll name my child Kaidence… 😉

Until next time…
