No, really: will Kim Kardashian & Kanye West name their son ‘Easton West’?

The great Cait

A photo posted by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on

Kim Kardashian and her sisters have been on social media all weekend, likely to promote Kylie Jenner’s 18th birthday (which is Monday and Bedhead will have more on that tomorrow). It seems like the Kardashian-Jenner clan spent a lot of time together and even Caitlyn Jenner was included. This seems like the first time that Caitlyn and Kris Jenner have been together with their children, all in the same room, in months and months. I’m guessing it was awkward as hell. I’m including more photos below.

Meanwhile, there’s a rumor going around that Kim and Kanye West have already chosen a name for their son. Kim is reportedly due in December, and she and Kanye genetically selected male embryos to implant, so it wouldn’t surprise me if they’ve already chosen a name for Male Heir Kardashian-West. Remember how everyone jokingly said – during Kim’s first pregnancy – that she should name the kid North West? And remember how she denied that she would name the kid that and suddenly, North West is out there in the world?

Well, Kim and Kanye have reportedly chosen to name their son… Easton West. That comes from Kim’s favorite media outlet, the Daily Mail. A source told them that Kim and Kanye decided on the name early “so that his nursery and wardrobe can begin to be made, monograms and all.” Kim’s rep is denying the story though. But after denying the “North West” name, who really believes the denials coming from Camp Kardashian at this point? If they do name the kid Easton West… well, I wouldn’t be surprised at this point. East West and his big sister North West. Sure.

    Damn, I was hoping they named him Pacific North West! 😉

    • Lauren says:

      I hope hoping for Wild- ‘wylie’ for short. 😆

      • Sabrine says:

        It wouldn’t come as any surprise. If they don’t ridicule their child with Easton, then it will likely be some other ridiculous name the poor child will have to live with. Having money doesn’t always mean you have common sense when it comes to the important things in life.

    • OhDear says:

      If they name the child “South,” maybe they can get an advertising deal out of it.

    • Lucky Charm says:

      NOOO!!! The Pacific North West is too beautiful a place to sully by connecting it to a Kardashian!

    • Lucky Charm says:

      I actually like the name Easton, just not with the last name West.

      They could use (their version of) a biblical theme by naming this one Star; then the kids would be North Star.

  2. NewWester says:

    Is Kris Jenner wearing the sunglasses to hide the death ray stink eye she is giving Caitlyn?
    As for the name Easton, I rather like it. But I don’t think they will go with that name. Remember people had assumed North would be named after Kanye’s mother or have a name beginning with “K”
    Off topic: What is going on with Kris’s lips?

    • Shambles says:

      Re: that photo– TMZ reposted that picture to their Instagram, and the caption was all about how Kim posted it and it was the first time Cait and Kris had been in a room together and bla bla bla… And then they ended it with, “We gotta say… Still a damn good looking family.”
      I snorted out loud when I saw it, thinking of all the posters here who suggested TMZ change their name to KMZ. That’s no joke, because the ass-kissing is SO real.
      As far as Kris, now I can’t un-see the imagined death stare behind her sunglasses, bwahaha. She’s starting to look more and more like Satan’s favorite handbag every day.

    • Miffy says:

      No opinion on the name story, they really can’t horrify the world anymore than they did with the name North West. But those photos!!! PRICELESS!!!
      The second one looks like Kris tried to slither into the photo at the last minute before anyone noticed. I think the glasses are to hide how much better and more natural Caitlyn’s eye work is than Kris’.
      The third one looks like Kylie Jenner is trying to suck the collagen out of Kim’s cheeks in her never ending quest to be her 30-something-year-old sister’s clone. Sorry, Klone.

    • Louise177 says:

      Easton was considered for North. Kim was on some talkshow saying she liked the name. Also the name Easton isn’t a silly name like North is. It’s not a common name but there are people who have it. I listen to country music so I always think of Easton Corbin.

  3. JudyK says:

    Personally, I like Easton West.

    However, if I never see another “selfie” of anyone, it will be too soon. Feeling nauseous after seeing the above display.

    • lisa2 says:

      I like the name Easton too.. If they hadn’t named North “North West” Easton would have been the perfect name.

      Easton is actually a pretty name for a girl and not a bad name for a boy.. the should have had more forward planning. EASTON was the better choice.

    • ladyg says:

      Me too. I like the name, a lot — actually.

    • Tate says:

      I know someone named Easton. I like the name. It is not as ridiculous as North. (Sorry North, you are adorable but I still can’t believe the name your parents saddled you with)

  4. Red32 says:

    I’ve never seen people who try to do “sexy face” so much in family pictures. Am I the only weirdo who smiles in photos with my parents instead of trying to go all America’s Next Top Model?

    • Amy Dunne says:

      I’m with you there but if you look at the pics again these parents are also trying to be all top model. Sad!

    • zinjojo says:

      Your family doesn’t try to outdo one other with their smizing? You mean you stand together and just smile?

      /jk :)

      • Aussie girl says:

        My god, my fam bam would pay the shit out of me or any fam mem who posed like that in one of our pics.

    • Tdub30 says:

      I love the juxtaposition of the pic with the five girls. The two normal ones who are naturally pretty on one side with little to no makeup, and the other three on the opposite side with a truck load of makeup and doing their best to pull a face.

      • Daria Morgendorffer says:

        +1! If I would’ve seen this comment before I posted mine below, I would’ve just responded here. I’m glad I’m not the only one who thought it was super obvious.

      • Liberty says:

        Lmao :-)

      • Jen says:

        Great minds… ;)

      • Tate says:

        That really stood out to me too!!

      • TeaAndSympathy says:

        Too right, Tdub. I saw that picture on another site and this was the first thing I thought, too.

        Those ridiculous, stupid women with their tongues out. Again. They’re like 14 year olds. And I’m exhausted just looking at this obscene narcissism.

      • ctkat1 says:

        Me too!! You have Kourtney and Kendall, both smiling like normal people do in a photo, both with a regular amount of makeup on, and then the other three looking…the way they look. It’s really jarring.

  5. Don't kill me I'm French says:

    This birthday party was a Tupperware reunion in fact ….so much plastics!

  6. Sunnyside says:

    Kim looks like a Simpsons character in the top Caitlyn picture

    • Daria Morgendorffer says:

      I thought the same thing when I saw that! She really barely looks like a person at this point.

    • Joy says:

      Pregnancy doesn’t agree with all the junk she’s had shoved in her face

    • TeaAndSympathy says:

      Yep, I said this month’s ago, Sunnyside. She needs a tad more yellow, but she’s there.

      • sarah says:

        The side profile of Kim makes her nose look weird. Not ‘bad’ but different, I always thought she had a medium sized bump/high bridge and just contoured a lot but it looks really “ski-slope-like here…

  7. Janie says:

    No really, who cares? I like the name Easton.

  8. sassy says:

    soooo new instragram pics of kim K with NO ..i repeat NO belly bump….ummm if you’re wearing latex wouldn’t it show up more?? And the boob pic….would show a bump under neath…..this trick is not pregnant

    • Tifygodess24 says:

      She not very bright. I saw that yesterday and I was like hmmm where the huge bump she’s been sporting. And apparently looking at the comments im not the only one.
      *If you look at her Instagram the one that says 42 mill that she posted last night after the one you linked – there’s no bump at all. She’s gross.

      • TeaAndSympathy says:

        Sassy and Tifygodess: They had these same pics on DM (der – The Daily Kardashian), too. There’s a close up of your one. Sassy, and, looking at it, I find it hard to believe she’s pregnant. A couple of days ago there were photos of her looking decidedly pregnant, and now this. Is latex really that magical? I forget where my pregnancy bumps started from, so could be barking up the completely wrong tree… Having said that, the side-on pic looks photoshopped to high heaven, Tifygodess, so perhaps that’s what all this is about.

    • swack says:

      Saw this picture yesterday also. Think it has been photocopied to ask get out. In other pictures she has a muffin top over the spanx she wears. That dress should be showing a muffin top also.

  9. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    North West. Easton Weston. I mean, its their baby but I just find that so dopey.

    • blue marie says:

      Me too. Real question though, are Kourtney & Kendall (i get them all so confused) the only 2 that haven’t had plastic surgery?

      • Tate says:

        It sure looks that way. Seeing a pic of all 5 of them together really emphasizes the plastic in the 3 well…. Plastic girls.

      • TeaAndSympathy says:

        Apparently, Kendall has had a nose job and lip fillers. Subtle, but tweaked, just the same. Kourtnry said she got her boobs while in college, but I don’t know about her face. I know what you mean, though. They do look much more natural than the rest, and in the family shot, they even look normal.

      • word says:

        Kourtney admitted to getting her boobs done a long time ago. Yeah Kourtney and Kendall look the most “natural’ and coincidentally they also have the smallest butts in the family hmmmmm.

  10. JudyK says:

    Kaiser, there’s video of Florida News Anchor John Brown walking off camera because of Kardashian coverage and saying “he’s sick of this family” and “no one cares about them anymore.”

    I APPLAUD him…in fact, he gets a standing ovation from me.

  11. Lilacflowers says:

    The Sourh must feel relieved

  12. Crystal says:

    Kendall looks like a breath of fresh air next to the others. They are always made up with 20 lbs of make up and she looks fresh, natural and beautiful.

  13. Miran says:


  14. Dawn says:

    Who would be surprised if they did? After all they named their daughter a direction why not name their son one too? And Easton means “to the east”. But they won’t know that and KanYe will make up his own definition like he did with north. Silly them.

  15. Daria Morgendorffer says:

    The most striking thing about this is the picture with all of the sisters together. It’s so funny to me how Kim, Khloe and Kylie are all plastic surgery-laden and wearing pounds of makeup, and then on the right there is Kendall and Kourtney who barely have any makeup on and aside from Kourtney’s breast implants, are all natural. There was obviously a huge divide in that family/household and Kylie was recruited to the dark side.

  16. Godhateswolverine says:

    I would be against it but I’ve already been disappointed. Bret Easton Ellis praised Douche-face Sick Dick (the Patrick Bateman remark) so Easton has already been tainted. I’d protest no let it be untainted but the damage has already been done.

    I need more coffee.

  17. happyXamp says:

    Honestly I think Easton would make the name North look a little more normal. With Easton it becomes “oh directional names that’s cute”, verses that’s a weird name. It’s like the girls they all have k names. Not so weird.

    • Antonym says:

      I was thinking similarly. It makes this seem like a naming theme for their kids. They could follow it up with little Southerlyn. Not defending them, or theme names (I personally dislike the theme), but given her family’s theme naming with the K’s it seems entirely possible and it’s something a lot of parents seem to do.

  18. good buddy says:

    I hope they read these comments because I like the name, True West. I think True is a great name for a boy or a girl. I knew someone named True and was a very nice person.

  19. word says:

    How many times have we seen Kim take a selfie with Bruce? None. But for SOME reason Kim and Cait are besties. Kim runs where the spotlight is that’s for sure ! Also, I think their son will have some Biblical name.

    • Mare says:

      Because it’s always about Kim.

    • jwoolman says:

      Yes, all the pics and her presence on Cait’s show make it very clear why Kim is touting how understanding and supportive she is of Cait’s transition. I briefly had thought maybe she was developing some depth, but no – she just sees it as an opportunity to get people interested in Kimmie as always. The irony is that the pics show that Cait looks much more natural than Kim. And Cait dresses so much better than Kim. So Kimmie isn’t coming off as well in comparison as she undoubtedly had assumed she would. And yes, Kim pretty much ignored Cait when she was Bruce.

  20. word says:

    Jesus West
    Moses West
    Red Sea West

    or a number…they will call him a number…like Four West or something…better yet Nine West (nevermind they would never name their son after a Fashion line they consider less than).

    • Cricket says:

      LOL! I’ve thought Nine would be in the running as well but you make a very valid point. I was thinking they would change direction (no pun intended) and go with a number ala Beckham naming Harper Seven.

  21. Jayna says:

    Northwest (They didn’t give the child a middle name for a reason)
    East and West (What Easton West sounds like and it’s on purpose)

    It just seems like they are making their kids’ names a joke.

    • me says:

      They didn’t want to give North a last name either. Which is odd…but then Kim’s family talked them out of it (or so that’s how it went down on their fake show). It’s like they are already planning for their kids to be celebs and not “normal educated people”. How can you just put “North” as your name on a resume lol? Even “North West” on a resume is odd. Oh who am I kdding, North will never even have to type up a resume or go on a job interview.

      • Mindy says:

        I hope you’re wrong… I hope North HAS to explain her bullshit name to everyone when she’s older. Same with Easton (they really are morons, aren’t they?). I hope the Kardashians and Kanye all go bankrupt because people no longer pay attention to them. I hope no one remembers these idiots by the time she’s old enough to enter high school.

      • Cricket says:

        or maybe a symbol like Prince? maybe North will go with a star or an arrow pointing north?

      • jwoolman says:

        My guess is that she will decide to go by Nori and if needed will legally change her name when she’s older. She might even go for something entirely different. It’s not uncommon for people to adjust their parents’ choices for names. But who knows? Maybe she will like the name North. I think Kanye’s family calls her Nori, though.

  22. The Eternal Side-Eye says:

    God I hope so, the jokes would be amazing.

  23. Miffy says:

    Still holding out for Dear Sweet Baby Yeezus. It just has a ring to it. No surname.

  24. Birdie says:

    So his initials would be EW? Mhm..

  25. me says:

    The pic of Kim, Kris, and Cait looks like a before pic, an after pic, and a wayyyy after pic.

  26. Loren says:

    I called this at the beginning. I told my husband it’s either going to be Easton or Weston.

  27. IfUSaySo says:

    I think the name is cheesy. The name ‘North’ was odd, but kind of worked. I wouldn’t try to repeat it with another directional name. And what if they have another?

    That being said, I do think she is pregnant. I think she smashed her stomach down and photoshops pictures but is still pregnant. Maybe lying about being 5 months, she may be having an early c-section like 37 weeks based on complications or past history. If she wasn’t pregnant, she would be losing weight but she is gaining.

  28. Pegasus says:

    Why do we never discuss that Kim looks more and more like a Gelfling with every passing selfie? Points for not giving their kids names that begin with the letter K, I guess.

  29. Hollz says:

    If they go with Easton West…it feels like they would be a planning to have another kid named South, for the “matched set”

  30. lis says:

    dawn west.
    don west.
    gives tribute to his mother.
    and offers a cool duality.

  31. pk says:

    I don’t dislike the name Easton, but the directional names are just dumb and show what simpletons they are.

  32. EricaV says:

    Lainey over at Lainey Gossip has been calling this since she announced she was pregnant. I bet it’s true.

  33. gingergal says:

    All his things will be monographed ‘EW’. Aww.. little baby EWWWWWW
