Kim Kardashian needs help picking out a one-syllable girl’s name for her third baby

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West celebrate Kendall Jenner's 22nd birthday

For months now, we’ve known that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are expecting a third child via surrogacy. They waited a while to confirm it, which I understand – there are just as many nervous moments with a surrogacy, and they wanted to wait, which is their right. Kim had a baby shower over the weekend, which says to me that the baby is due pretty soon. We’ve heard that before as well, that the baby is due before Christmas. I think Kimye Baby #3 will probably happen in early December. So, Kim is getting ready and Kanye is probably getting ready too. Kim stopped by The Ellen Show to chat, and she let it slip that they’re expecting a girl this time around. They don’t have a name yet, but it will be difficult to outdo North West.

Kim Kardashian accidentally revealed the sex of Baby No. 3 Wednesday. Making an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Kim discussed how welcoming a child via surrogate differs from her pregnancies. “I don’t know if my son [Saint West] gets it yet. Especially since I don’t have the belly, it is a different experience. I said to my sisters, ‘Would it be really creepy if I just had someone dress up like a big stork and drop the baby off at the front door?’” she said. “Isn’t that what we heard when were growing up? That storks dropped off…?”

“You’re going to mess him up real bad,” Ellen DeGeneres teased. “Don’t do that.”

“My daughter [North West] thinks she’s really tricky. We had a baby shower over the weekend. I thought, ‘I really do want to have a baby shower because I want her to feel that something’s coming and for her to really understand it,” Kim explained. “People brought toys and gifts. She was opening them all up the next day and she said, ‘Mom, Baby Sister’s not here. I think I need all of her toys in my room. I’ll play with them and just make sure they’re OK for Baby Sister.’”

Ellen replied, “She’s a toy tester…and you just told us it’s a girl!”

“Oh! I guess!” Kim said with a laugh. “Yes, it is. North is really excited about that. She’s so excited. Let’s see if it lasts. I did explain to her, ‘OK, at 4:00 in the morning, when you come in my room, I’m going to have to be with Baby Sister—I have to feed her.’ We’ll see how it goes.”

“Is that her name, Baby Sister?” Ellen joked. “Do you have a name yet?”

“We don’t have a name. At the baby shower, I was like, ‘I don’t want to play any baby games, measuring the belly—none of that will work for this time around. I just want everyone to write a name on a little tile and see if there’s something that sticks,’” Kim said. “We’re freaking out. We have no name.” Ellen had a “celebrity baby name generator” ready, but it wasn’t all that useful. Possibilities included Lip-Kit West (“Kylie would love that…”), West West (“You’ll definitely know how to spell your first and last name easily…”) and Pop West (“Not for me…”).

The best option was Star West. “You know what’s so funny? I’m not going to name her Star, but my daughter picks that name all the time,” Kim revealed to Ellen. “So, she got a toy and it’s a llama—Baby Sister’s toy that she took—and I said, ‘Well, OK, what do you want to name the llama?’ She said, ‘Star—Star West!’ So, she names everything Star West.’ I’m not vibing on it.”

Ellen, who took credit for naming Kim and Kanye West’s son, finally ran out of suggestions. “You’re so difficult!” she told the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star. “I’m trying to help you.” Kim, who said her surrogate will give birth “soon,” realizes she can be a little bit picky. “I do like different name—but short, easy to spell, one syllable,” she said. “That’s kind of my vibe.”

[From E! News]

I’m including the clip below – Ellen is doing everything to help Kim pick out a name, and I kind of appreciate her criteria – one syllable, easy to spell, something that sounds good with West (which is actually a great surname with most first names). Personally, the names North and Saint have grown on me so much over the years, and I could totally see Kim naming this baby Star West. Someone in the audience suggested Elle West, which I could see too. One syllable names for Kimye: what should they choose? Sloane West. Lex West. Hope West. Dove West. Quinn West. She’s not listening to us, though.

    I’ve never watched a Kardashian show, but I do like that they are being such huge, unabashed awareness to surrogacy.

    • hilariouso says:


    • Nicole Savannah, GA says:

      Yesterday she was telling PEOPLE how much more difficult the surrogacy is than being pregnant. Agree to disagree here, she whines either way all the way to the bank and that’s selfishness. They had her new beauty collection at the shower. Come on, Kim.
      For names: Key, Fly, Soar, Strike, Dee for his ma if it has to be one syllable?

      • kimbers says:

        Skye, Lee, eve, lux, Rayne, Dawn, rose

      • jwoolman says:

        South West. East West. Ca-Ching West.

        Ellen is to blame for Saint West? I thought it was a last minute decision.

        Hard to understand that she’s asking for name help this late. What else has she had to do?!?

      • Rice says:

        Up West
        Kan’t West
        Spanx West
        E! West
        Your West
        My West
        Her West
        His West

      • Minx says:

        This woman annoys me soooo much ..her husband is always in a “Donda” sweatshirt.. Maybe name the Kid after his belated mom.

      • Paris says:


    • Lahdidahbaby says:


      Go West.

    • MM says:

      My mom’s a ho West.

  2. minx says:

    Talk about first world problems.

  3. Susanne says:

    How about a one letter name? M, sounds like emme. L is elle. Can I win a prize if I’m right?

  4. Lenn says:

    Donna. Donna West.

  5. PlayItAgain says:

    Here’s a name for them: Putz.

  6. hilariouso says:

    Next West

  7. babykitten says:

    I’m surprised Kanye didn’t want North named after his mother, but he was too busy being cool to be sentimental.

    • Olive says:

      Not everyone wants to name their child after dead relatives, no matter how beloved they were. Sometimes you want your child to have a fresh start with their own name, not the baggage of a beloved relative that child may feel they have to “live up to” and always feel like they’re falling short.

      • curiosity says:

        An older tradition is that the second or third name of a child is the name of the father / grandfather or mother / grandmother.
        My mum fell victim to this tradition. ;) Though “Joanna” isn’t that bad. An uncle of mine got “Maria” for a third name because his parents were VERY christian. *LOL* At the beginning of the school year he prayed that nobody would find out.

        the Kardashians’ mother?
        Kris West (not that bad compared to other suggestions here.)

    • Godwina says:

      Agree with Olive. Every time you say a dead relative’s name, you’re reminded of the dead relative for better or worse. That can be painful for reasons both good or bad. My brother recently had a baby and they named her after my dead grandmother. Who actually wasn’t the greatest person. It’s unpleasant for me to hear that name often again (not that it’s about me, but it’s still unpleasant, so there you go).

    • babykitten says:

      I pretty much agree with you guys. I can’t stand when parents name their children after themselves – Ivanka, Giovanna, etc. Didn’t Serena just name her daughter junior after her fiancé? Just don’t like. I think every baby should have their own name, However, I still think North’s name was no more than a juvenile play on words.

  9. swak says:

    Not sure if Kim really slipped saying the baby is a girl as DM had stories on the shower and the color pink was very prominent.

    • Jessica says:

      She snapchatted her baby shower and everything was pink.

      • MM says:

        A baby shower for the third baby, without the surrogate invited. Oh and she wants the baby delivered at the door with the newspaper and the milk. Only a Kardashian can be this self-centered.

    • me says:

      She hinted a while ago that North really wanted a sister. I think Kim wanted another girl and with surrogacy could probably pick the gender (though they reportedly did this with Saint too didn’t they?).

    • Trashaddict says:

      Um, yeah, “accidentally” my foot!

  10. Lightpurple says:


    The possibilities are endless

  11. Frosty says:

    Quest West

  12. Layla Beans says:


  13. Jessica says:

    I never hated Saint West; North really did take some time. Nori is really cute though. I actually like those names better then Blue, Sir and Rumi.

  14. AngieB says:

    Hahaha! These comments are great!

  15. Juls says:

    Due West. But spell it DEW, like morning mist.

  16. Jennifer says:


    I would genuinely laugh hysterically if she called it Bean.

  17. Anoneemouse says:

    How about Vanity? Would fit that family well. Could call her “Van” for short.

  18. Cee says:

    Stella West.

    Actually, I don’t really care LOL

  19. Anastasia says:

    I think naming a child Saint is arrogant and setting them up for jokes.

    They’ll name this one South.

  20. Alexandria says:

    Bey West since they worship Beyonce so much.

    Other sane and krazy ones:
    Kay / Kaye
    March / May / June
    Keen (since Kim wants to be Kate’s BFF)
    Kate / Kayde

  28. RBC says:

    Fame West

  29. Keels says:

    Vogue West to try to forever stay in Anna Wintour’s good grace.

  30. Who ARE These People? says:


    Oh, sorry, I see SLP above beat me to it!

  31. Renee says:

    I didn’t think people still had baby showers for baby #3?

    • swak says:

      Seems like more and more people have baby showers for babies beyond #1. Their choice, but I would like to see a tradition of those that can afford it take what is given at the baby shower or have a baby shower that gets practical items, diapers, onsies, bottles, etc. and give to an organization that can use things for the less fortunate.

    • InVain says:

      I have many friends/family that have showers for baby #2 and beyond. It has always bothered me as I grew up with the traditional baby shower for baby #1 and nothing beyond that. Gift giving and expectations from others have gotten completely out of control IMO, and not just with baby showers. I do not have children yet, but I certainly do not expect to have or want a shower beyond baby #1. I get that this is an opinion, but it’s mine.

      • Lightpurple says:

        One that I share.

      • Lady D says:

        Someone mentioned a second baby shower was doable if there were many years between the children or 2nd child was different sex.

      • Moon Beam says:

        I also share that opinion. Lady D, I think that is an acceptable reason. A sprinkle for a girl to get clothes if you already have a boy doesn’t seem too unreasonable, or some other circumstance similar. My sister in law was thrown a big “sprinkle” by her super extra friends for her second girl in two years. I may or may not have purposely signed up for a Sunday training seminar that day. I told people not to throw me one for my second and third because I found it tacky. I’m glad to see you two share my opinion.

  35. Lady D says:

    I just found a website with almost 7300 one syllable words. Can the K clan read?

    • Pandy says:

      Of course they can … but she can’t talk about her efforts to promote world peace or eradicate hunger, so we are stuck with reality show baby name conversations.

    • Olive says:

      Nope. Not at all. Not one single person in that family can read.

      (I know we don’t like them, but come on.)

    • SoulSPA says:

      Their specialist PR team or teams will choose the name. I remember reading that Kris now Jenner chose to give her kids starting with K since it was proved by some very cleaver marketing people that words that start with the k sound were appealing to people. See Kondak or Coca cola. The appeal of the K Kardashian names. Maybe that tape would have not had that much success without that name.

  36. Kari says:

    Faith West!
