Gender: M Origin of North: Word name

A lot of attention was drawn to this name when Kim Kardashian and Kanye West announced it as the name of their baby daughter, making it instantly unisex.

North is a word name that's long been used, albeit very quietly, a name with a certain purity and strength. It's a good choice if you're from, say, Wisconsin or Maine, love winter or are an avid skier, or if you just want a name that's both very familiar and very unusual.

North is just one of several cool names with a directional slant-others are West, Weston, and Easton.

A young Elijah Wood played the title character in the 1994 film North.
