Baby Kimye: North West?

Yes, you heard right. According to multiple sources, the name Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have gone with for their infant daughter is ... "North."

A signed birth certificate from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles reportedly revealed the information -- which would make the child's name North West (no middle name).

Oh boy. What was your initial reaction to this name choice?

I think it completely ridiculous when parents chose comical or whimsical names for their children. That child now has to go through life as the butt of jokes.

Absolutely ridiculous. It wouldn't be an awful name (I immediately think of the movie "North") but with West... dummies. Or will the baby not have his last name? I actually would prefer they named her Kimye! LOL

I totally agree with demecafe. While "North" would have been bad by itself, putting it with "west" for North West is even worse. Just ridiculous.

Blah was my initial reaction, they could've come up with something so much cuter. I'm so surprised that she caved on this name. I've been wondering if it's all a publicity stunt though, at least I hope it is for the baby's sake.

That I'm positively irked that they chose this cutesy-poo combo...and that, at least once, my younger son will get to hear, "your middle name is North? Isn't that Kim Kardashian's daughter?"
