A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on

Is it just me or has Kim Kardashian been really boring lately? Keeping Up with the Kardashians premiered their new season recently, which is why Kim and her sisters have been giving tons of interviews. Usually, when they have new KUWTK episodes to promote, Kim stokes some controversy somewhere, but for the most part, her interviews have just been about how she and Kanye are getting ready for their fourth baby (via gestational carrier). The biggest “scandal” I’ve seen is people upset with Kim’s cultural appropriation of some various Indian headpieces and jewelry – she’s been wearing (and showing off) several maang tikka pieces in pap strolls and Instagrams. I’m not going to speak for all Indians or people of Indian descent, but this doesn’t offend me as a half-Indian woman. I think Indian jewelry and Indian clothing are beautiful and I don’t consider it cultural appropriation for someone to wear a sari or a maang tikka. Everyone should get to enjoy the beauty.

As for the baby talk… Kim’s carrier is due in May, and they’re expecting a boy. So it will be perfectly symmetrical in the Kardashian-West fam: girl-boy-girl-boy. Two of each, with about a two year gap in between each. Kim told Jimmy Kimmel last week that she and Kanye have been thinking a lot about the name and they’ll make a final decision once the baby comes, but Kim has a short list. She was thinking of going with Robert, for her dad and her brother, but she seems to have rejected that name. So now she’s thinking something Armenian:

Kim told E! she and her rapper husband are still thinking of potential names for the baby boy. She revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live this week that she considered Rob in honor of her brother Rob Kardashian and late father Robert. But she is not sure it will fit with his siblings very unique names. But she told E! she is interested in an Armenian name.

According to Armenia’s National Statistical Service, the most commonly used names for newborn boys in Armenia were Davit, Narek, Gor, Hayk, Alex, Erik, Arman, Samvel, Tigran, and Aram. Traditionally, Armenians have used Biblical names of Greek, Latin and Hebrew origin. Some examples are Abraham, Hakob (Jacob), Hovhannes (John), Petros (Peter), Poghos (Paul), Madlene (Magdalene), and Yeghisabet (Elizabeth), Tamar.

What Armenian name would “fit” with North, Saint and Chicago? I think Aram would fit, as would Petros. Kim is once again blessed because so many first names sound great with the “West” surname. Petros West sounds awesome. Aram West sounds amazing. Davit West sounds cool. Abraham West sounds righteous. Any or all of those would be great.

    I can’t stand this narcissist. That outfit is hideous

  3. Chica71 says:

    She’s been boring. Now if she can just go away. Don’t get this Naomi Campbell copying of her clothes and styling, two very different body.types.

    • QuidProQuo says:

      She may be a culture vulture butt- she put shape on the map. J Lo started and Kim ran w the ButtAwn

      • Rina says:

        Jennifer Lopez earned hers by working out. Kardashian (and her sisters) bought it at their friendly neighborhood surgeon.

      • QuidProQuo says:

        The exassGerstion DID change our cultural ideals. I’m no fan of plastic surgery as an aesthetic & can’t wait for the pendulum to swing back to natural. However, this family paved the way for Shape Pride. Even mannequins changed.

      • Joy says:

        Did they? Now you not only need to be skinny but have a huge ass on top of it.

      • Kitten says:

        So we swapped out one completely unattainable body ideal for another. Neat.

  4. CharliePenn says:

    Abraham West does sound pretty great!

    It’s nice she’s looking for an Armenian name. I think that’s a nice way for a child to feel close to their ancestors/ethnicity/cultural inheritance.

  5. Peanutbuttr says:

    Hayk or Tigran West would be a memorable name should the kid get the fame hungry gene

    Aram also would be catchy. Like Aram Khachaturian, the composer of the Sabre dance.

  6. LahdidahBaby says:

    Tigran, and they could nick him Tiger. Tiger West.

  7. Kittycat says:

    Kanye is picking the names so the kid will probably be called Knight West or Angel West or Jesus West.

    • Lory says:

      You’re so right. He’ll have a full on temper tantrum if she doesn’t let him name the kid so she’ll just give in to make him stop jumping up and down.

  8. Kittycat says:

    Donald West

  9. Sonia says:

    Arman (Armani) West

  10. snappledietpeach says:

    Serzh West

    Levon West

    or to follow the Chicago theme, Yerevan West

  11. Nichole says:

    I cringed at “Gor” because of the connection to John Norman’s books, though I am honestly not sure how mainstream / known they are.

    • theotherViv says:

      I always wish they were less known, they make me cringe, too. My husband read them when he was a lonely teen/ twen and they did a complete number on him- I am still trying to „re-program“ him. He secretly thinks that is an actual real world he would like to live in, yeah, don’t ask. I can see Kanye all up in that mess. Bananas.

  12. Ana says:

    Aram West is awesome.
    Tigran is awesome too.

  13. Lory says:

    Paris Hilton was as thirsty as it got but she at least had the decency to not breed. The Kardashians have been assaulting our eyes, ears and intelligence for years now and have had so many children between them that there will be no escaping them for centuries to come. Idiocracy is prophecy so be ready for this family to contain multiple future presidents.

    Shallow. Slow. Narrow. Hollow. Low. New. Raw. Few. Sallow. Callow. South. Mid. East.

    • mycomment says:

      this show is depressing in what it tells you about this country .. and that they have such an influence and following. they are truly the stupidest, most useless family ever to breed. I’ve only seen minutes of one episode, and I couldn’t believe how empty the conversation was — and always with those damn iphones in their faces taking selfies.

    • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

      Was thinking of baby names. But applications are up for interpretation lmao.

  15. KidV says:

    I like Aram West, his nickname could be Batman. (Aram…Adam, I know, I’m reaching)

  16. AnnaKist says:

    Bob. Bob West.

    I’m Indian and it would have been nice if she had given a shout out to the Indian culture in that instagram pic. The only time she’s ever said anything about the Indian culture is when she said on her show “all Indian food is disgusting”, which was very ignorant of her.

    • Lory says:

      People who say Indian food is bad are usually weaklings who can’t handle it. My all time favourite restaurant is this small, family-owned Indian restaurant and it is absolute delicious. It’s about 3 hours away from my home and thankfully so otherwise I would be a regular there.

      • me says:

        I mean it’s ok if she doesn’t like Indian food but to say “all Indian food is disgusting” is so ignorant. We as Indians are a vast and diverse group. There is no way she has had EVERY type of Indian food. I can bet if someone said to her “all Armenian food is disgusting” she’d be pissed.

  18. thaliasghost says:

    Wow…just realizing that with surrogates children who share both parents can be born at the very same time. Mind blown.

  19. Oliviajoy1995 says:

    I’ve always gotten the feeling Kanye has the final say on his kids names. Not sure if that’s true but it’s nice to see Kim gets to pick a name.

  20. Victoria says:

    Why is she orange?

  21. Elisabeth Smith says:

    I wonder when little Trump West will get here

  22. SilentStar says:

    My guesses are:
