It’s not Kaidence. It’s not Kai. And thank heavens she kept poor Clementine from bastardization with a K.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have evidently chosen the cheeky North to add to his surname. According to People Magazine, this is the name on the birth certificate at Cedars Sinai Hospital. ETA E! Entertainment News, Kardashian’s host channel, is also reporting now that she is North West, no middle name. They might have considered a double middle name, South Easton, perhaps? If this is indeed it, trademarks and domain names will be a trick. Although “North by North West” might still be available in certain genres aside from film…
Their baby will at least have some direction in life. How awesome would it be if she grew up to be a crunchy Doc Marten sporting hippy on the Oregon Coast? It would also be nice if the child can always listen to her own true north if you catch my meaning. I guess if they have another child this really only leaves South (South By South had become a running joke for this babe), East, or Easton, which they actually love.
Kim indeed did throw us a red herring, as she denied that North was even in the running. Many people thought at the very least it would be something like Knorth. It’s much more gender neutral than I might have expected, and really quite simple, beyond the obvious pun. Maybe my compass is off, but I don’t actually hate it.
Welcome little North West, A.K.A. “Nori.” We can get back to regular programming now, and rest easy knowing that our choices are likely still safe from going the way of celebribaby. That’s all I really cared about anyway.
