Kim Kardashian & Kanye West really did name their kid North ‘Nori’ West

I can’t believe In Touch Weekly was right. I really, really can’t believe it! Every other tabloid claimed that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were totally going to do a “K” name and everyone had allegedly settled on something like Kai, Kaidence, something like that, with “Donda” as a middle name. But as it turns out, In Touch Weekly was right to declare that Kimye had settled on…


For real. People Mag confirms it. TMZ confirms it. They got their hands on the baby’s birth certificate, and they say the baby’s name is North [no middle name] West. Apparently, Kim and Kanye had a change of heart about giving the baby girl a “K” name and North was their fall-back position or something. It’s being confirmed by multiple sources now.

Us Weekly’s source says: “They will call her Nori for short.” Us Weekly actually had a story yesterday afternoon that Kim and Kanye were NOT going to go with a K name and that the “Kaidence” name had been rejected.

Us Weekly’s sources also say, “Everybody is doing great. The baby is so sweet. Kanye is in love. Kim’s real due date was July 12 — Kanye’s mom’s birthday. That warmed his heart.” Bulls—t! People Mag said in their cover story that Kim was only three weeks early, but Us Weekly is sticking with the “five weeks early” story.

As for the name… I hate to admit this, but I liked the idea of “Kaidence West” so much more. Kai West is a cute name, I thought. But North? Ugh. Nori West sounds like a restaurant.

    OH MY GOD. Now, I have an unusual name, but when I heard this I actually whimpered for the poor child. North West?! Kim and Kanye are actually, full blow f**kin retarded. That poor child- as if she won’t have enough problems growing up with a narcissistic, overbearing mother and grandmother.

  2. Pastyousayyouneverknew says:

    ROTFL!! They actually called their child North West? A “K” name woulda been better tbh, I can’t believe these people lol, whose idea was this name primarily? Kanye’s? Kim’s?

  3. DanaG says:

    Well Nori is seaweed so welcome to the world North Seaweed west. Thank goodness it’s easy to change your name cause this kid will be. I’m guessing they don’t think she is going to run for President or anything not with such a laughable name.

  4. L says:

    Well, now no one has to worry that Kimye are going to steal their baby name.

    North (sans the last name) isn’t so bad. For a boy baby. But Nori? Like the sea weed? This might be the worst baby name ever

  5. Jackie Jormp Jomp (formerly Zelda) says:

    Nori? I see smell jokes in her adolescence…

  6. boredbrit says:

    Nori? As in the seaweed? Um ok then.

  7. LL says:

    The name would be alright if the last name wasn’t West. Or they could have named her Knorth. That would have fit the ‘K’ quota.

    Or even Key – its ridiculous but its starts with a ‘K’.

  8. pfeiffer87 says:

    I find it quite disgusting that these outlets can get hold of the child’s birth certificate – I know her parents signed up for it but violating the privacy of a newborn seems a bit much.

    • Kate says:

      It’s a public record, though. I agree with you on the ickiness of it, but it’s legal to get it.

    • chibichichai says:

      can they put out of fake birth certificate in public records? I’m going to give him the benefit of the doubt that they are not that stupid. or rather someone in their management team is not that stupid. maybe put out a fake birth certificate because they knew it was public records and the real name is kaidence.

      I wish nothing but the best for this little girl. sure she is rich but with her parents and grandmother she has as well add the name given (if the name really ifs north) it doesn’t look like they’re giving her the best start in life.

    • NeNe says:

      It’s not a shame when their parents are famewh*res. Every single thing they say and do is calculated. They want us to know all of their business, because if/when we all stop talking about them they will just fall of the face of this earth. Well, at least, I could hope that happens.

  9. lisa2 says:

    I actually loved the name Kaidence Donda West. It was really pretty.

    I just don’t get North.. but it is not my child so..

  10. Rose says:

    Meh, I don’t mind it so much, it’s got a cleanness to it I suppose. could be worse?

  11. pao la says:

    Of course only because grandma’s name is the evil witch of the South and of the East. they needed another one to make things good again.

  12. Ellie says:

    Oh my God. That poor child has to go her whole life being named after a direction. I feel for her.

  13. Amelia says:

    . . .At least it’s not a ‘K’.
    I suppose that’s a middle finger of sorts to her mother whose name I’ve forgotten.

  14. Willa says:

    Nori West DOES sound like a restaurant! Uugh…just uugh.

  15. dorothy says:

    Poor child better have some good coping skills for the playground.

  16. Neekie says:

    Lol!!!! These two have the combined IQ of a tomato.

  17. Hoya_chick says:

    LMFAO. That’s all. Carry on.

  18. Birdie says:

    Simply awful! Worst “name” ever.

  19. The Original G says:

    Another is s along list of consistently dumb decisions by KK. Dumb. No one needs these two making up new names. No One.

  20. Lamb says:

    “They will call her Nori for short.”

    Nori takes longer to say than North. Ugh, terrible.

  21. lisa says:

    i smell fish!

    seriously mercy kardashian west had a better name and we all know how that ended

  22. lem says:

    i’m probably the only one who LIKES the name “nori west”. It does sound like a restaurant but it’s different without being ridiculous (IMHO) AND it’s not a K name, which gives me some hope that KK is rebelling against Mother Satan and her marketing of the family.

  23. Ali says:

    They really made Blue Ivy a better name. Good for them!

  24. Kate says:

    There are so many beautiful girl names out there and they name her North? The nickname doesn’t make it any better, either. Did they forget that they were naming a HUMAN and not some clothing line or something? What a joke.

  25. MoxyLady007 says:

    I think it’s kind of cute.

  26. Shade says:

    Cue the ‘North by North West’ baby clothing line. I’m not that surprised. They really ARE that stupid.

  27. serena says:

    What a horrible name for a poor little girl…Kanye should be ashamed of himself and Kim too for going along with such a dumbass.

  28. Tiffany27 says:

    They really named that baby after a cheap a** airline? Whatever good luck Nori! At least you will have some amazing nannies.

  29. tracking says:

    I thought this was a joke…

  30. Nic says:

    I don’t get why her last name would be West – they aren’t married, are they?

  31. LAK says:

    In a world of celebrity nonsense, North West is remarkably tame.

  32. Poppy says:

    I don’t mind the name North – my daughter has a little girl called Northey in her class. Personally I’d shorten it to Nora, not Nori though.

    North West however… Fuckwits.

    I like Cadence (Kaidence if you must) too.

  33. Emily says:

    Maybe not with West as a last name but I like the name North for a girl… It seems cute.

    Bleurgghhh I be she wasn’t due July 12 but they’ve changed it so it could be Kanye’s mum’s birhday… I find that icky

  34. Maxilius says:

    “Nori” is Japanese for “seaweed”….

  35. Starrywonder says:

    Let the tradition of celebrities giving their children horrible names continue.

  36. the original bellaluna says:

    Poor little Konsequence Kouture, doomed to a directional name!

  37. Samigirl says:

    Uhh. Nori for short? North is also just one syllable. Why not name her Nori?

    • Erinn says:

      Lol, I woke up at like 430 am and couldn’t sleep. I read the radar online article about the name, and was like “Wait… a two syllable name is SHORT for a one syllable one?”. I just chalked it up to being half asleep, but I guess even half asleep, I make more sense than Kimye.

  38. Apsutter says:

    Kai would have been cute. I actually think the nickname nori is cute tho

  39. cloud&feather says:

    Did anyone tell these idiots that Nori has more syllables than North so you can’t use it as a SHORT nickname for North??

    Or that nori is seaweed?

    Or that North West was an airline?

  40. BlackMamba says:

    Omg that Kaidence Donda West name was beautiful. Why would they do this?!
    I think I’ve been too concern with that baby story because I’m having some weird withdrawal symptoms since I already thought of the baby as “Kaidence” and now I have to get use to North. Oh God, I’m a loser! The evil K family has won. Ugh.

  41. Katie says:

    YES! Nailed it!

    lol at those of you feeling sorry for this kid’s NAME. That is the least of her issues. Her parents are worse than something she can change when she’s 18. It’s not like she’s going to win a Nobel Prize.

  42. Alexandra says:

    There is One Direction and then…there’s North West.

  43. JoJay says:

    Well, Nori is a name of a dwarf in the Hobbit, right? She might be predestined to be short :)

  44. b says:

    I always knew Kim was a no-class moron but this kicks it to a new level.

  45. MonicaQ says:

    And I thought Peyton Manning picked…awkward names for his kids, aie.

    Good luck little one. You’re going to need it.

  46. Talie says:

    Well, it’s not like this little girl is ever going to grow into some kind of normal life…so, I think her name is sort of irrelevant as weird as that sounds. It’s not like she has to worry about her resume making an impression.

  47. Another Ann says:

    So when they get together with their pals Bey & Jay, the kids are Ivy and Seaweed.


  48. Mar says:

    Just terrible. Nothing cute, sweet, girlish or interesting about this name.

  49. BeesKnees says:

    This is like when Rob Morrow, the actor from Northern Exoposure and Numbers, named his daughter Tu Morrow. It may seem cute and funny now, but it’s going to get old eventually. If I remember correctly, David Bowie had a son named Zowie Bowie who changed his name when he was an adult. Leave it up to these two to come up with a stupid name, did we expect any less? Kai and Kaidence were far too normal for me to believe.

  50. The Original Mia says:

    These idiots actually named their child a direction. Seriously. They are so narcisstic. Couldn’t even consider their child. Just themselves. Poor Nori or Lil’ Seaweed for short.

  51. Beatrice says:

    I wasn’t crazy about naming the baby Donda, even though it was Ye’s mother’s name. However, that would have been a lot better than North. Kids are resilient, though, and seem to rise above (or change) the strange names their parents give them.

  52. hadleyb says:

    How did they get the birth cert so fast? Usually it takes a couple of weeks after you give birth.

    • Marmaduke45 says:

      Typically, you can’t leave the facility with the infant without having completed the information for the birth certificate. It was my experience that the hospital sent a staff member to my room to complete the paperwork to file the birth with the state on my behalf. As for an actual copy of the certificate, those can only be requested in writing and can only be issued to someone with a legal right to it. That being said, it does take a couple of weeks or so for the paper certificate to get issued to the new parents. However, that doesn’t mean that the record of its filing isn’t online, and the name of the baby and the parents is right there for anyone to see. Of course, maybe TMZ or whomever, has someone in the county clerk’s office on the payroll….

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Yeah, it took us about 3 days to decide on Baby Boy’s name, and they were RELENTLESS about “visiting” our room for the info.

        They submitted everything, and his Birth Certificate arrived in the mail shortly thereafter.

  53. Green Eyes says:

    Why not name your kid a compass direction? Wouldn’t have expected anything less from the same guy that is mocking Parkinson’s Disease on his new CD. I just hope lil North doesn’t grow up to be as narcissistic as her parents.

  54. fabgrrl says:

    Geh! Why? They could have given her the perfectly nice name ‘Norah West’, and then “North” would be a clever, adorable nickname.

  55. tiki says:

    are they going with bynorth for the middle name?

  56. JL says:

    Nori I don’t mind. When you hear the likes of Doody, Skeeter, Cooter, Bubbie and Sissy etc it’s just not that big of a deal.

    The fact that it’s not a “K” name sends a statement to momager Kris and all the Kardasian clan.

    You know, they could nave named her Pickle and I’d have been thrilled just because Kanye, in essence, just told Kris Jenner to go pound sand.

    • Jayna says:

      Neither of Kourtney’s children have a K name, but I thought with Kanye’s name starting with a K, maybe they would. Plus, Kim is Mommager’s favorite child, so I thought might have more influence over her.

    • swack says:

      Khourtney didn’t name her children with names that began with K. So I don’t think this is sending a message to Kris. Think it is their way of getting more attention. As a retired teacher I can tell you naming your child something different can cause problems. I had a boy named “Alois” and asked how to pronounce it and he said “Al” and I thought “Okay, not a problem” Also had a student named “Antijuan” and thought “Did his parents have something against Juan?” Also had identical twins named Therese and Therese H. at my school. I don’t get it. Told my ex we were not going to name our children anything that they were going to have to explain to anyone.

  57. hillbillyinthecorner says:

    It’s like naming your baby boy Harry when your last name is Balls……LOL

  58. Quinn says:

    If this doesn’t solidify these two dumbasses into the Dumbass Hall of Fame, nothing will.

    Can we PLEASE put Kim and Kanye in the Spencer and Heidi “DONE” pile, now??

  59. arock says:

    Its all a set up to merchandising the North by North West line of baby clothes.

  60. NeNe says:

    I feel sorry for their child. First off, that name is just horrible. Next, her mother is famous for making a sex tape, and for being a famewh*re, and her father is a man with a g-d complex….. Poor child…. doomed from the start.

  61. Chell says:

    I don’t even know why I am shocked by this, they are so ignorant! Like this poor baby girl doesn’t have it bad enough with these two for parents they have to give her such a stupid name?!?! Morons!

  62. janie says:

    Well…. nothing left to say? Cute? I like Nori.

  63. JL says:

    Damn, they should have named her….

    True North West

    True would be a cool as hell name, then she could hang with Blue…..

  64. Marmaduke45 says:

    Wait. If this baby was 3 weeks or 5 weeks early, why is being discharged from the hospital after less than a week? Wouldn’t she be in NICU so that her lungs can finish developing? Or maybe she was full term…

    Way to go on that name. These two make me feel unreasonably hostile.

  65. TG says:

    Does she know how predictable she is? We all knew her wedding would be over the top and tacky and we all knew her baby name would be dumb. There isn’t anything to say accept Kim and PMK oh yeah and Kanye are DUMB.

  66. TG says:

    Oh yes and if she called it Knorth that would sound like the name if a panda Knut. Dumb idiots.

  67. lisa2 says:

    I saw that they have been released from the hospital. I’ll wait because I’m sure there will be a new thread on it.

  68. randand00 says:

    As a recruiter, I’ve seen it all. Very hard to keep a straight face while interviewing some of these folks (plus, I tend to giggle when I’m nervous anyway), but I had a candidate once named Tequila Massengill. I almost died. Yes, these poor people with parents who give them shit names, have to deal with it for the rest of their lives! So sad. North West. Damn.

  69. Anastasia says:

    The fact that they immediately nicknamed her tells me even they know what a joke the name North is.

    I’ll never understand giving a name then immediately calling them something that doesn’t even derive from the name. Why not just name her Nori if that’s what they really wanted?

    Sounds like one parent wanted North and the other didn’t and Nori (seaweed) was the stupid compromise name.

    But as several people said above, her name is going to be the least of this child’s problems, sadly.

  70. JL says:

    I was just thinking;

    The ugliest names I know today are Paula Dean and Serena Williams …

    It’s not the name, skin color or socioeconomic status that’s important.

  71. Shelly says:

    I think North West is kind of dumb, but I do really like Nori.

  72. Mayday says:

    I kinda like the name Nori!

  73. chria says:

    North is an utterly ridiculous name! I certainly feel for her she’s prone to be bullied all for her stupid parents decision to call her this.

    another dumb name story…my friends narcissistic boss and his clueless fiance just names their daughter “ophelia wish” can you say destined stripper?

  74. Jessiebes says:

    One of my favourite book personalities is called Tuesday Next.

    What is in a name?

  75. Cali says:

    I don’t buy it. That’s just what they put in the birth certificate. They’ll do a bunch if publicity to announce her “real” name in a few weeks. Either to help the reality show or kris jenners talk show. Keeping Up’s viewers are falling every episode. I firmly believe they’ll squeeze every ounce of press that they can.

  76. Madpoe says:

    as i sit an ponder this name:
    Northwest Airlines …Northwest Bank..
    Northwest Federal credit union…

  77. booboobird says:

    well, Nori can hang out with Suri now.

  78. Dawn says:

    Gawd can I just say that these two are a pair of emotionally stunted idiots. So Kimmode gave into the more powerful personality that is Kanye just like she usually does to her mother. How sad to saddle this kid with a direction for her name. Nori is cute but come on, then just call her Nori. More and more I cannot stand this duo and don’t see how they can possibly last with their personality defects, one is a sociopath that loves money and fame and the other is a high level narcissist. I find it so crazy that the media loves them so much rather than shun them as they should be. Sick.

  79. pnichols says:

    Just name her Pete Moss and be done with it……….ba dum bum. They are morons.

  80. noor says:

    hello I read the blog for a while I commented out the first time, I am French, is what they have named their daughter north west and I do not understand the translation? thank you

  81. michiem says:

    to me, this means Kanye won. This is totally a Kanye move. He already gave his child her hip-hop name.

    While he is a douche, I like the thought of Kim following his lead instead of listening to her mom. I think she can rehab her image if she cuts her ties with her mom and acts like a real partner to Kanye. We shall see.

    Oh and this “un-disclosed” location business. I think that they had originally planned to be at PMK’s house and Ye nixed that shit.

  82. michiem says:

    Oh and good luck trying to trademark North West. They won’t be able to like Blue Ivy was.

  83. Wendy says:

    Oh this poor poor child. North. NORTH!! A cardinal direction. That sounds so harsh for a little girl, so loveless. I was concerned they’d name her Wild, but North is even worse.

  84. Jayna says:

    North and Blue can have playdates in a few years, and Apple can babysit them. LOL

  85. Jane says:

    That poor child is going to be harassed for a number of years with that name. Kanye and Kim…are you prepared to defend her when she is bullied in school for that stupid mistake of yours?

  86. littlestar says:

    Do these people realize that their child is a PERSON and not some gimmick / way to grab attention? Who am I kidding? It’s the two biggest narcissistic fame wh*res ever.

  87. Carebearvancouver says:

    Just for fun everyone on celibitchy should call their son, daughter , pet or stuffed animal north for an entire day…. And really imagine using that name over and over like you do with children… That poor nanny….north pick up your toys… North are you hungry? noth put that down…. F$&@ thes people are stupid. But seriously if Kanye couldn’t rap or sing he would be parking my car and Kim would be asking in what size would i like to try that on. My dog is wondering who north is lol!

  88. Shauna says:

    So Kim’s vagina is now the North West passage?

  89. Sandy says:

    Moxie Crimefighter,Banjo,Maxwell( for a girl) Blue Ivy, Pilot Inspector, Apple, Sparrow, Birdie, Sunday, and now North could it get any worse. Do celebrities think it’s cute or funny to give their poor children these names. Luckily they won’t have to apply for a job

  90. Dedrie says:

    The meaning of the name Nori is Belief precept doctorine

    The origin of the name Nori is Japanese

    Nori is not regularly used as a baby name for girls

    • Ok says:

      Desire — thanks for the information

      But note the name these morons gave her is North.

      Nori will be the nickname. Along with north south east west, Nanook, Wicked Witch of the North, North to Alaska, North by NorthWest, GPS, Cold Wind Blows, Migrate North, Northwestern University , and any other crap to make fun of her.

      But it is ok because Northie can cry into a bag of mommy and daddy’s money to feel better

  91. Ok says:

    They can call hot Nanook. Nanook of the North West.

    Morons who breed.

  92. Nina says:

    But Nori is a longer name…wouldn’t North be short for Nori, then?

  93. ErinINPitt says:

    What a pair of self-serving famewhores. Imagine giving birth for the first time…and the only thing concerning you is how much publicity you can get out of it. Poor kid is screwed from the get-go.

  94. Melissa says:

    Of course they did.

    Yeezus and Kimmy needed to ensure their childs name was as unique (if not more) as Blue Ivy Carter. Ima let you finish Jay, but North West is the best weirdest celebrity baby name ever!!! Idiots.

  95. lucy2 says:

    Oh that poor kid.

    Part of me is wondering if this is either a joke or a false report – sent out by Pimp Mama of course. Because then they could “correct” it and get 2 news cycles out of it instead of just 1.

    If it’s not a joke, I feel so bad for this little girl, on so many levels.

  96. Meggin says:

    Middle school is going to be a blast for North West…. sarcasm, of course. I’m sure their kid will be adorable (they are both good looking people) but omg, that name!! Augh.

  97. Mulle says:

    “What is your name kid?“
    “Let me guess your last name is South?“
    “Um no, it‘s West!“

  98. This Chick says:

    I don’t get it. Here we have a bunch of adults mocking the name of a newborn…

    I have a plain Jane first name, but a very odd (not hard to pronounce, just odd) last name. Every time I met an adult, from as early as I can remember till just last week, I get asked if teased as a child.

    I never was… Not unless you count all the adults doing what I think of as passive teasing. (For the record, this still happens to me as an adult, but only with adults my parents age or older. Never from a peer.)

  99. EscapedConvent says:

    How self-indulgent & oblivious can two people be? Giving your child a joke of a name is so…..

    I can’t even think of the best negative word to use. We didn’t really need any more proof that these two idiots don’t have a brain in their heads, but here’s proof anyway.

    (Maybe they named their baby after Nori, one of the dwarves in The Hobbit? So there will have to be two siblings for Nori: Ori & Dori.)

    Yeah, probably not.

  100. drdoolittling says:

    Everyone was posting this everywhere yesterday. I thought Kimye was just f*^king with us and was just trying to get a couple of laughs with a fake leak. I cannot wrap my head around this name.

  101. drdoolittling says:

    Oh, and it should be Knorth with a silent “K”. Then the name will really be complete

  102. Asiyah says:

    Let me spin this to a positive:

    Nori comes from “nour”, which is Arabic for light, and “nouri” means my light in Arabic. Let me just pretend that’s what Nori stands for, for her sake!

    • Nina W says:

      I’m general people of Armenian descent are not big on picking Arabic names for their children.

    • Dawn says:

      I get what you’re saying and it’s nice of you. But Armenia is an Eastern European country and this kid is only 1/4 Armenian and then Scottish and Irish and I don’t where Kanye’s people originated. Besides I doubt either one of them would take the time to stretch it out like this. Kanye went for controversy so he can have a big old rant at his next concert and act like a child. And Kimmode went along with it because she really doesn’t care that much and doesn’t want to fight with Kanye. And North will have to live with it until she is old enough to change it if she wants. End of story, selfishness wins again.

  103. Meghna says:

    So sad. GOD help that child.

  104. jen says:

    Horrible name. Really bad. I bet it was Kanye’s idea. And deep down she probably wasnt into it, but of course kisses his egotistic ass. And when they break up in five minutes she will regret it. Hahahahaha

  105. claire says:

    This is totally putting ego first over the well-being of a child. Ugh. I can’t stand these people.

  106. Bella says:

    I like the way kimmie-boo made sure we all knew the baby has small nose, her lips and straight hair,what does that say?She spent a week in the hospital to recover from allthe plastic surgery,tummy tuck(huge) lipo and what ever else they could do.Can they push those hips in a foot?

  107. anon says:

    the name Maxwell looks so much better

    On another note why did only KIM sign Birth certificate? Is everyone still believing Kanye was with her because that is what the Kardashin PR junkies tell us.. lol

  108. bettyrose says:

    They named her for a Hitchcock film? ROFL. Here are my twin daughters : Psycho & Vertigo

  109. jess says:

    “Kim’s real due date was July 12 — Kanye’s mom’s birthday. That warmed his heart.” Bulls—t! People Mag said in their cover story that Kim was only three weeks early, but Us Weekly is sticking with the “five weeks early” story.”

    Umm…July 12 is not 5 weeks away. I’m due July 11th and when she gave birth I was only 2 1/2 weeks away from my due date.

    I’d take North over Kaidence any day, tbh. You can’t mispronounce North, because it’s fairly ubiquitous, has relatively positive connotations (North Star), and short.

    I grew up with a special name that was misspelt, misspronounced, etc. Lest we forget, for a long time instead of Kanye West, people would call him Kane West or something. Yeah, North and Nori as her nickname? Bb West will be all right.

    Laineygossip be arguing over the name as if the baby were their own. LOL.

  111. Janet says:

    Oh well, I guess it beats Easton.

  112. Viv says:

    Mark my words: when Kanye gets tired of Kimmode she will have another little one – Nori will have a little brother called South West.
    I dread the thought, but I kinda think it will happen.

  113. LaurieH says:

    I thought for sure this was a joke. In fact, until I hear confirmation from Kim and/or Kanye, I will continue to think it’s a joke. In fact, I won’t even believe it if I hear it from them. It would be just like Kim and Kanye and their over-inflated sense of selves to deliberately come up with a stupid name for the media and “regular people” to use, while keeping the baby’s real name a secret. So perhaps it truly is a joke (the joke being on us). “Nori” will just be the baby’s public name (like Kanye now wants to be Yeezy or Yezus or whatever the hell). Or, I could be wrong and Kim and Kanye are just incredibly uncreative morons.

    I have never understood why parents name their kids with these silly names (I am uncluding North West in this group)- eventually these kids will get teased about these names and eventually these kids will grow up and become adults – kids with these silly names will probably change them when they are adults but there is not much they can do as kids and have to endure the relentless teasing/jokes.

    Dont these parents understand this? Is it so much more important to be “unique” than it is for the child’s needs to have a sensible name?

    I simply dont understand these parents.

  115. Msmlnp says:

    Poor kid. That will be the only direction her parents give her in life.

  116. phaksi says:

    Poor baby. Konsequence Kouture would have been better

  117. Ryan says:

    Nori is long for North, damn idiots.

  118. Paloma says:

    I think whatshisface was trying to be the equal of Blue Ivy in the weird name department.

  119. Nan says:

    Poor kid, both parents seem to have borderline IQs.

  120. nikko says:

    I love the name. It’s very pretty. I don’t know why everyone is gettin on them so badly, all the celebrities name their kids weird names.

  121. truthful says:

    If Kim wants to keep Ye around, she knew she’d better go w/North..LOL

    I bet pimp/mommy mgr is pissed.

    she will NOT control YE.

  122. tabasco says:

    Nori West sounds like a strip mall sushi chain location.

  123. tabasco says:

    Maybe someone should buy her a compass. In case she needs I.D.

  124. skuddles says:

    So I take it she gave birth to a weather vane?

  125. DeltaJuliet says:

    My friend’s dog is named Nori sooo………

  126. jwoolman says:

    Like many people, my name on the hospital birth certificate was Baby Girl… That’s not how I sign my name! I don’t know why people are gasping so much about this. Maybe it will stick, maybe it won’t. Many parents don’t settle on a permanent name until quite a while later. Kim is dumb enough to go for it, since she’s still in the Barbie doll phase emotionally, not sure about Kanye. But her more practical sisters will be giving her an earful.

    I still think they should consider Mercy II Godhelpme or Ka-Ching! Vatikan City Kardashian West.

  127. little_blu says:

    ohh lawd, should have expected this ridiculousness

  128. Daisy says:

    They are both morons. Sheesh.

  129. moley says:

    They named it after a DWARF in the Hobbit. Is it gonna be short and hairy, just like mum then?

  130. Pastyousayyouneverknew says:

    And North West University tweeted this..

    .@KimKardashian & @KanyeWest, You’re Welcome Signed Northwest University #northwest— Northwest University (@northwestu) June 21, 2013

  131. fallen says:

    I don’t think its that bad, considering the celeb kids she’ll go to school with. I personally think Moxie Crimefighter is worse. LOL

  132. Jayna says:

    No middle name? You know that was all Kanye. He doesn’t want anything intersecting with North and West.

  133. Kim says:

    What else would we expect from these 2 self absorbed morons. They didnt think of the child and growing up how it would be made fun of for this terrible name. week 1 of the child life & already they are bad parents thinking only of themselves. Its not a cool name at all, its just stupid.

  134. idk says:

    It’s just a name, does it really matter? I see people on here complaining about how it’s not a “normal” name…well what is a “normal” name? Nori is cute…even North is not that bad. Besides, it’s not like this girl will live a “normal” life, she won’t need to send out resumes worrying about if her name sounds “professional” or not…just like Blue Ivy and the rest of them.

  135. paranormalgirl says:

    I just figured that they put that on the birth certificate to throw off the press and that the “real” name would be unveiled in some spectacular fashion and the birth certificate would be changed. My birth certificate initially had my name as Maire Elizabeth Gallagher and my parents changed it when I was about 10 weeks old to Brenna. They died shortly after that.

    • gogoGorilla says:

      Sorry about the parents. ((Hugs))

      I actually wonder if this isn’t a bunch of brilliant moves on Kanye’s part to totally undermine PMK and make it clear to her that she won’t be kashing in on his kid,

      If so, we’ll played, Ye!

  136. abbizmal says:

    This is a joke, right? If not, that is child cruelty because that child will be teased mercilessly forever. All that Botulism went to Kim’s brain. This child will rebel in a big way when she gets older. Stupidest thing I’ve heard in a long time. Maybe Kim will let her change her name after Kanye gets caught cheating.

  137. Amelia says:

    I grew up knowing a Rocky Trail, a Dusty Rhodes, and a black gal named Violet Green.
    But North West is the worst ever.

  138. DeepFriedLies says:

    They should of named her Wild Wild…at least she would of had a middle name.

  139. oivey says:

    Not an infant…simply an extension of their egos. And it’s not like they were working with the last name “Smith” or “Jones”. What was wrong with a normal name and not directions on a map?? Poor kid.

  140. Christy says:

    I can’t help but thing that Nori is some sort of (sushi) wrapper/”rapper” joke. Which is terrible, and so, SO up their alley.

  141. Lady D says:

    Maybe they put out a false name to give them time to buy up all the domain names involving their daughter. I think it was the Jolie/Pitt’s that did that with Shiloh’s name. If I remember rightly, they covered all spellings and combinations of their daughter’s name, although the K/W could have done that beforehand.
    OT: How much do you think PMK is willing to pay to have baby girl West on her show?

  142. greentiger says:

    Our family named our puppy Nori, because all of our animals are named after food. Nori is the seaweed wrap for sushi. Our pup is all black and we thought it was a cute name.

  143. Paloma says:

    Maybe she can be friends with Apple Martin.

  144. jilly says:

    I suppose anything is better than Apple. And ‘South’ would have had too many dirty implications. But North seems too masculine for a girl’s name IMO.

  145. Waif says:

    how tall is kayne west, 5’3″? i love when i’m taller than douchebag men :)

  146. Marianne says:

    I think North is a fine name for a boy. Sounds horrible on a girl especially with West. How cheesy can you get?!?

  147. VioletCrumble says:

    So is this guy in it for the long haul NOW?

  148. missiecoco says:

    just when you think these people cannot get anymore utterly ridiculous.

  149. Mia says:

    These people are narcissistic and they’re idiots. Everyone knows this. It’s all about Kim and Kanye. It’s not surprising that all they could think about was how avant-garde and “cool” they believed “Kim and Kanye” would look for giving their kid a “clever” and unusual name, when in actuality they literally turned this child into a living, breathing punchline. The best joke I’ve heard about that name was about whether Kim gave birth to a baby or a compass, lol.
