New mother Kim Kardashian is said to be seriously considering naming her first child “North”.
With the child taking her father Kanye’s surname the youngster would be “North West”.
According to InTouch magazine: “North is at the top of the list of names.”
A friend of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West told the magazine: “They’re not totally sure about it. Kanye loves it, Kim is okay with it.”
Prior to the baby’s birth on Saturday it had been expected that the pair would continue the “K” theme that runs in Kim Kardashian’s family.
Kim Kardashian, 32, has mentioned in the past that it will likely begin with a “K”.
And it seems her family is keen that remain the plan.
“The family doesn’t like it [North],” the insider told InTouch magazine.
The source added: “They’re going to decide by today [Tuesday].”
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West battle it out over their baby daughter’s name
Kim Kardashian’s close friend Larsa Pippen revealed that she had been to visit the baby in the hospital and a decision was nearly made.
But she said Kim Kardashian didn’t welcome her suggestions.
“We kind of went back and forth and the name that I wanted, [Kim Kardashian] didn’t love,” Larsa Pippen said.
Kanye West has not spoken publicly following his daughter’s arrival.
But the rapper did take to Twitter on Tuesday morning – to promote his new album Yeezus as it was released.
“Yeezus album now available,” Kanye West tweeted.
Kanye West curtailed his promotional activities when Kim Kardashian told him she “felt strange” on Friday, instead flying to be at her side.
With the baby not due until July it had been planned that Kanye West would have time to finish his work commitments before the birth.
Despite his disagreements with Kim Kardashian over the name, Kanye west is said to be thrilled to be a first time father at 36.
Larsa Pippen revealed the pop star has hardly left the room since Kim Kardashian gave birth naturally at a hospital in Los Angeles on Saturday.
“He’s so cute. He doesn’t leave the room,” she told E! News.
“He’s, like, in love with the baby. It’s so cute.”
The wife of NBA superstar Scottie, Larsa Pippen, a reality star herself is a close friend of Kim Kardashian’s.
“She’s doing great,” the Real Housewives of Miami star said of Kim Kardashian.
“She’s feeling really good and excited and the baby is so freaking cute. She’s so cute.”
Kourtney Kardashian enjoyed lunch with friends in Fort Lauterdale, Florida on Saturday, juggling her two children on her own.
Kourtney Kardashian, 33, was seen cradling her four-month-old baby Penelope, as two-year-old son Mason buzzed around alongside her.
The reality star had taken her children to lunch with her as she met up with some friends.
The eldest Kardashian sister did have some help however, with a woman who appeared to be a baby nurse, in tow.
Kourtney Kardashian bundled up Penelope in a blanket and held her close to her chest as she made her way in and out of the eatery.

Trailing alongside her was Mason, who looked cute in a white long-sleeve T-shirt, striped shorts and a pair of blue loafers.
They were joined for the meal by Kourtney Kardashian’s Real Housewives of Miami star friend Larsa Pippen, who donned a green dress.
The reality star captioned a photograph of the two which she shared via Instagram: “Lunch and laughter.”
Kourtney shared videos of herself from her mobile phone during the meal which was filmed for her spin-off TV programme.
Kim Kardashian shared with her 16.6 million plus Twitter followers that she was being “so lazy”, which apparently seemed a great reason to post a snap of her bottom.
The 32-year-old was spending the evening with her pal Larsa Pippen of Real Housewives of Miami fame after returning to Miami following a trip to London.
Kim Kardashian posted the picture of herself and Larsa Pippen displaying their shapes along with the words: “We are being so lazy! @larsapippen & I can’t get up for dinner!”
The brunette was seen looking exhausted upon her return to Florida the evening before and it seems she hadn’t caught up on her rest before sharing the photo.
The image sees Kim Kardashian and Larsa Pippen lying on their fronts on a plush cream rug, in what appears to be a walk-in wardrobe, while admiring themselves in a full-length mirror.
There’s no doubt Kim Kardashian had every intention of highlighting her famously voluptuous figure as she sported a pair of skin-tight beige jodhpurs.

She teamed the sexy bottoms with a sheer white shirt and tied her glossy locks into a slick ponytail to complete her equestrian inspired look.
Meanwhile, Larsa Pippen sported leopard print yoga pants and a casual black top.
Two hours later, it seems the reality TV duo weren’t any closer to getting active.
Kim Kardashian posted another snap to her Twitter page – this time showing herself and Larsa Pippen pouting in front of the mirror.
As Kim Kardashian’s pal Jonathan Cheban can be seen in the background, she wrote alongside the photo: “Stop trying to photobomb @jonathancheban.”
Kim Kardashian says that she is serious about slimming down since gaining a reported 15-20 pounds during her relationship with Kanye West.
And in a concerted effort to shift the weight, Kim Kardashian slipped on a pair of geeky black-rimmed reading glasses to work-out on the beach on Wednesday.
However, her more conservative and smarter style failed to distract from her sexy curves as she did some strenuous lunges on the sand.
Kim Kardashian, 31, displayed plenty of cleavage in a black sheer tank top, which she paired with tight leggings, that in turn highlighted her famous derriere.
She has admitted that she has put on weight, and tells Life & Style she’s determined to get back into shape after letting herself go since dating beau West.
“I’m hoping to slim down a little bit, and I’m not afraid to say it,” she tells the magazine in their latest issue.
“I think everyone goes up and down in whatever that comfortable love relationship phase is where you like to eat out, but now it’s time to get it together again.”
Friends of Kim Kardashian tell the magazine that she has gained several pounds since the duo started dating earlier this year.
“She’s gained 15 to 20 pounds. All Kim and Kanye ever do is go out to eat,” a friend tells the magazine.
“She feels so comfortable around him – he loves her curves – she hasn’t been vigilant about dieting.”
Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian says that she has also started taking QuickTrim again – the diet supplement for which she and her sisters are the face of.
“I’ve started [diet supplement] QuickTrim again,” she says.
“When I start that, it’s full focus.”
On Wednesday during her work-out, Kim Kardashian was also joined by her sister Kourtney and their Real Housewives Of Miami pal, Larsa Pippen.
The trio was seen going for a jog – the exercise session recorded by a film crew for the sister’s new reality show.
Tying her hair back in a ponytail and toning down her usual full-force of make-up, Kim Kardashian slipped her spectacles on and off during the workout.
The glasses, from the sister’s own eyewear line, boasted dark and almost squared frames, which also gave the star a look reminiscent of the well-known sexy secretary style.
Meanwhile, Kourtney Kardashian displayed her post-pregnancy figure in some black leggings paired with a yellow sports bra worn underneath a sheer blue T-shirt.
The combination revealed her flat tummy, obtained just under three months since welcoming her daughter Penelope Scotland into the world on July 8.
Kourtney Kardashian wore her hair in a similar style to her sister’s and opted to shield her eyes with some sunglasses.
