Kim and Kanye name their baby

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have named their baby daughter North West, multiple sources appear to have confirmed.


Insiders close to the couple apparently verified the parents’ decision, ending days of speculation over the child’s official moniker.

According to US Weekly, Kim and Kanye will give their child the nickname “Nori for short”.

The child has no middle name.

American gossip site TMZ also claim that they have seen a copy of the child’s birth certificate, which had the name North West on it, and the signatures of both Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, at the Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles where she was born.

Similarly, People magazine have since confirmed the news with a close friend of the Kardashian family.

The name North had been previously suggested by the media – including – as a possibility for the child, although many Kardashian fans assumed the spelling would be “with a K” at the start of it, in keeping with family tradition.

North West began trending on Twitter within minutes.

Neither Kim Kardashian nor Kanye West have commented or confirmed the name themselves, however.
