Oh, No! Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Named Their Baby...

Baby Kimye's baby name is not what we expected -- and it doesn't start with the letter 'K'

We never thought we'd say this, but we wish Baby Kimye's name started with a K.

After a long wait, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West finally confirmed to People that their little girl's name is:


As in, North West.

While it isn't the craziest celebrity name out there (see: Bear, Banjo and Pilot Inspecktor), the directionally-inspired name makes the earlier rumored choice of Kaidence look completely mainstream.

We probably shouldn't be too surprised -- the reality star had hinted at the direction theme on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno that she liked the name Easton, according to People. (We kind of thought she was kidding.)

The little girl does seem to have a strong sense of where she's going already, having surprised everyone by arriving earlier than expected. And it is on the mark with the baby name trend of using words as names, (think: Blue, Lion and the original Apple.) No word yet on a middle name, which was rumored to be Donda, in honor of West's late mother.

While we wish Baby Kimye had more of a normal name (sister Kourtney chose the now-trending name of Mason for her first child and Penelope for her second), we hope that after Baby Kimye's slightly rocky start, things will start moving in a, umm, positive direction.
