North West or Nori for short: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s baby name revealed
It was revealed that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have named their baby daughter North West.
Sources close to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West confirmed the decision.
The revelation ends the intense speculation over the child’s name, with other rumored options said to include Kaidence Donda, in honor of Kanye West’s late mother.
A source told UsWeekly that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have already given their daughter a nickname – she will be “Nori for short”.
They added that the child has no middle name.
TMZ witnessed a birth certificate with the name North West signed by Kim Kardashian, 32, and Kanye West, 36, at Cedars-Sinai hospital.
People magazine confirmed the news with a source close to the Kardashian family.
The name North had previously been suggested as a possibility for the child, although many Kardashian fans had dismissed the idea as a joke.
And the revelation certainly proved fruitful amongst Twitter users, as North West began trending within minutes.
It also sparked a slew of jokes from would-be comedians amused by the choice.
Back in March, Kim Kardashian denied rumors that Kanye West wanted to name the baby North.
“I do like Easton, Easton West,” Kim Kardashian joked on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno at the time.
Indeed prior to the baby’s birth last Saturday it had been expected that the pair would continue the “K” theme that runs in Kim Kardashian’s family – which is something that Kim has spoken about in the past.
While North was to prove her final choice, Kim Kardashian was said to be very keen on Kaidence, to match her family’s fondness of the letter “K”.
The reality star was reported to like the idea of calling the baby Kai for short.
Kim Kardashian’s due date was reportedly July 12 – just one day after Kate Middleton.
The date would also have been Kanye West’s mother Donda West’s 64th birthday.
