Kim Kardashian hints that Baby Girl West’s name might involve ‘Louis Vuitton’

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West out for dinner at Craig's restaurant

Y’all can yell all you want about how Kim Kardashian is “over” and no one cares about her, but you know you’re still waiting to hear what she names Baby West #3. Kim and Kanye’s surrogate gave birth to a baby girl on Monday, and Kim and Kanye were reportedly in the delivery room with the surrogate. TMZ says Kanye was behind a curtain – presumably for the surrogate’s privacy – and Kim was the first to have skin-to-skin contact with the baby girl. And we still don’t know Baby Girl’s name! We’ve already run through the same old list: Wild, South, True, Queen, Donda, Swift, Tres, etc. But what if Kim is trying to give us a hint? This is what Kim posted on Instagram yesterday:

The Louis Vuitton logo. Is it a hint? Probably. So what do we have for suggestions? I’ll make a list.

Elle V. West
Elle West
Vuitton West
Louie West
Love West
LV West
Elvie West
Louis West
Louis Vuitton West
Elv West
Brand West
Luxe West

…did I miss anything?

    Leather West?

    • halah01 says:

      LOL! Except that print usually isn’t even on leather so maybe Canvas West?

    • Luna says:

      Naugahyde West.

    • Senaber says:

      Hahahahabaha leather is best guess!!

      Love or Lux are pretty good guesses too though.

      • AnnaKist says:

        Yes, Senabar, Kaiser came up with a good list, based on the LV theory, amd I also like Love and Luxe. Or maybe Lou/Lu/Luu.

    • AnnaKist says:

      They seem to like single syllable names, that would make it Lea, Leath or Can. I do hope they won’t name their new baby after those ugly products, though. But, here we are, being played again…

    • Em says:

      Hahahahaha! Funniest thing I’ve read all day :-)

    • Slowsnow says:

      Unnecessarilyexpensiveandtacky West?

      And no, I never have a thought about any of these kids’ names unless I see an article about
      1) a mum hinting at her newborn baby’s name on instagram as if he was the object of some contest
      2) said hint relating to a tacky brand (albeit fashion, it is a brand)

      Another suggestion: a woman in the UK called her kid Hashtag (I KID YOU NOT). Why not Hashtag West? I mean….

    • Paris says:

      Monogram West? Caramel West? Amber West?
      God … this is so stupid.
      They should call her Messiah West. Or her Highness West.

    • happy girl says:

      Apparently, the shot has nothing to do with the baby’s name. It was LV designer Kim Jones’ last collection/show today. I guess she’s a big fan (???)

  2. Anonymouse says:

    Didn’t they have enough time to figure out a name? Give the poor kid a name. Ugh these people. Just name her Out. Out West.

    • AnnaKist says:

      I’m guessing they’ve known the sex and had a name chosen for a long time. This is the Kardashian way: Create a huge story over a secret nothing, get people guessing and talking about you again, and bam! Back in the spotlight, back in business. She won’t be able to pull this stunt again, though. Her next big story will probably be the divorce. But, hold your breath. Her sisters’ baby stories are yet to come.

  3. Erinn says:

    I’ve always though the Louis Vuitton logo/branding was so trashy. I don’t care how much it costs- it looks like an 8th grader trying out stamps.

  4. RBC says:

    Obvious West
    Product Placement West
    MPAT West “My Parents Are Thirsty West”

  6. Ayra. says:

    If it’s not Wild West, she can honestly keep it.

    How do you name your first kids North and Saint, then go with something like Elle or Louise? And out of all the high fashion brands… LV?

  7. Mar says:

    Ugggg go away

  8. Mer1 says:

    Does the baby get to spend time with the mother , the surrogate, after birth? How does that work?

    • Cee says:

      From the experiences I’ve heard of, no. The baby goes from doctors to the parents.

      • Mer1 says:

        Thanks. The baby has been in this woman’s womb for so long, it seems there should be a different method and gradual ‘separation’ but … I have never read about different ways this is handled.

      • Cee says:

        There is no genetic connection between the two, and from a very cold POV, the woman hired out her womb to carry someone else’s child (IMO, even if money is exchanged, it is a very generous and kind offer).

        Everyone involved knows the rules beforehand – the child belongs to the couple he/she shares a genetic makeup with; the surrogate has no claims to the child even if she carried it in her womb. There have been instances in which the surrogate sued for custody, but from what I can remember they had no legal grounds to do so. The child should bond with the parents, not the surrogate, as this woman will have no part in the child’s life.

    • Veronica says:

      Kim is the baby’s mother.

    • lucy2 says:

      The surrogate is not the mother, and my understanding is no, they do not spend time with the baby. I would think a gradual separation would be extremely hard on the surrogate, best they not form an attachment.

      • Mieke1969 says:

        Well the baby just spend months inside the woman’s body. You do get to know the baby in your belly. There is no easy, bond free separation…

      • me says:

        I wonder if the baby has any attachment to the surrogate? I mean it’s her voice she’s been hearing while growing in the womb. There has to be some sort of bond formed.

      • CynicalAnn says:

        @mieke1969-I personally never felt a huge bond from carrying a baby. I bonded once they were in my arms.

  9. Runcmc says:

    How do we know she’s not hinting that she’s now an LV model/has a partnership/designed a bag?

  10. Cee says:

    Lou West
    Vita West

    That’s all I have (doubt they will name her Louise West)

  11. Julia says:

    Logo West? The worst thing is that I wouldn’t put it past them!

  12. Appleminis says:

    Louise West.

    Louise is the girl version for Louis, and it’s a traditionnal name in France !

  13. mellie says:

    Yes, let’s not name our child after a family member or anything peasant like, let’s go with naming her after a hand bag. So classy.

  14. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Pleather West

    Letherette (Warm) West

  15. Nancy says:

    Sad that she has to use the name game to stay on the blogs. I guess people still watch their show, but I can’t imagine who. Already predicting the guess who the surrogate is episode, since there hasn’t been any talk of it, she absolutely will want to make it an issue. If she respected the future of her child, she’d name her Mary after her grandmother or a real name as opposed to a compass. Yeah right, that will happen.

    • Bethany F says:

      the surrogate isn’t a mystery. DM has been posting pap photos of her (with her face blurred) the last couple months.

      • Swack says:

        It’s DM and no other outlet has pictures. So I’m a bit sceptical whether that is the surrogate or not.

  16. minx says:

    Oh, brother.

  17. Bonz says:

    I would name her ‘LIV’ West……………..

  18. Whataboutme says:

    I am betting on Love West. North, Saint, and Love. But North doesn’t really go with Saint and Love. I can’t imagine she will name her little girl Wild. That is just asking for problems!

  19. Dolkite says:

    You know how stadiums sell naming rights to different companies, like Allstate Arena or United Center? Maybe Kanye and Kim have taken naming rights to the next level and Louis Vuitton paid them like $20 million to name the kid after the LV brand. Then the kid will become the youngest LV model at age 1, etc.

  20. Nev says:

    Seven West.

    There’s a seven upside down!!!!!

  21. Capepopsie says:


  22. Heat says:

    Well, you know how they’re always referring to their ‘brand’…how about Brand West?

  23. Rapunzel says:

    Vuitton West

  24. catwoman says:

    Pleather West.

  25. Khymera says:

    Fleur west (lv fleur de lis)

  26. Tiffany says:

    Man, they are gonna name this kid Luxury. It just fits.

  27. Kara says:

    Basic Bitch Fashion From The Suburbs West?

  28. me says:

    God this woman loves attention.

  29. Sherry says:

    I have been thinking for a while it will be Elle West, because it completes the North (N), Saint (S), Elle (E) and West (W).

  30. Sarah says:

    Fake West????

    Works in several different ways with this gross group of adults…

  31. Jeanine says:

    I think Kim Jones has also left Louis Vuitton and his last show is today? Could be part of it. Other fashion people have been posting about it on social media this week. Or it’s just another of this ridiculous family’s silly cryptic games to stay relevant🤷‍♀️

  32. Mar says:

    I’m shooting for Queen or Reina.

  33. Jag says:

    Bag West?

    Handbag West, but they like monosyllabic, so Hag West?

    Purse West?

    Ego West?

    Clutch West? That’s all I’ve got. lol

  34. Megan says:

    Tacky Showy West?

    Garish West?

    Trying to think of names that go with LV ;)

  35. cat418 says:

    55 west

  36. Ms.O says:

    LV West = Love West

  37. HeyThere! says:

    I’m leaning toward Love. My reasoning is they don’t want similar names as in directions(north) or positions of power(Saint), so naming her Love would fit because it isn’t exactly like the other two name. They also don’t want this name to be better than the other two…if you get what I’m saying…so Love fits.

  39. Pandy says:

    Love West. What a sh*t-hole name THAT would be!!! I don’t wear leather or eat meat so these designer bags are wasted on me. Thank God. Fools and their money!

  40. Lila says:

    There are specific handbag names, too:

    I may be giving them too much credit….some of these names are downright normal!

  41. Hehe says:

    I’ll take a nameless bag over one splashed with advertising their brand

  42. KicktheSticks says:

    What…. I sincerely hope she’s just joking. Naming your baby after Louis Vuitton? Seriously? Didn’t Coco and Ice T do that with the whole Chanel thing?
