Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have reportedly named their newborn daughter North,  and less than 24 hours after the announcement, all directional jokes have officially been cracked.

Although that won’t stop anyone from continuing to make them for the rest of little North West’s life, the obvious problem with the otherwise-attractive name.  Which begs the question: Did Kim and Kanye choose the name despite or because of its punniness?  We’re betting the Kim resisted choosing a name that was inherently a joke, but Kanye refused to alter course.

North West had surfaced months ago as Kanye’s name of choice but was pooh-poohed as just another absurd rumor.  And Kim herself, in a Jay Leno interview in March, declared that North was out of the question – but added that she did kind of like Easton.  And she also said that they weren’t tied to a K name, that their list was in fact half K and half not.

Kimye Kname Kraziness

It’s close to midnight  after noon, the end middle of Day 2 3 or maybe we can call this Day 3 4 of the Kim and Kanye Baby Name Watch.  You know they’re not going to announce the name tonight right this minute, because most sane journalists are already asleep out to lunch.

We’ll find out the name of the newborn daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West in the morning by tomorrow, according to “informed sources.”  But it’s said to start with the tradtional Kardashian K.

In case you’ve been living on Jupiter for the past decade, the Kardashian family is famous partly because they all — or almost all — have names that start with the letter K: Mom Kris, daughters Kim and Khloe and Kourtney and Kendall and Kylie.  They even marry men whose names start with K: Kim was married to basketball player Kris Humphries and is now with Kanye.

Elisabeth Wilborn over at You Can’t Call It It thinks the newborn baby’s name might be Klementine Star, based on the fact that the domains klementinewest.com and klementinestarwest.com had been registered.    Other sources are saying the name will be Kai Georgia Donda.

Donald Trump Jr. has a daughter named Kai, while Ethan Hawke has a little Clementine. Here’s a list of all the recent celebrity baby names that start with K, from Brad and Angelina‘s Knox to Kevin JamesKannon, Gwen Stefani‘s Kingston to Padma Lakshmi‘s Krishna.

It’s possible, of course, that Kim and Kanye have not decided on the name yet and the new parents are still debating their options.  In that case, we have some ideas for them:

Kadence, Kalliope or Kalypso — Musical theme!  Three rhythmic names that nod to Daddy’s profession.

Kadonda — Okay, we made this one up, but we kinda like it!  It combines the K beginning with Kanye‘s mother’s name Donda.  You could also go Kadashia, Dasha for short — cute, right?

baby name poppy

Congrats to Kim and Kanye on the arrival of their daughter!  There’s been no name announcement as of Sunday night.  Is the couple still deciding, or have they realized that delaying the name announcement can generate twice the headlines?

Let’s give the famous duo the benefit of the doubt and assume that they’re still deliberating.  If Kimye is stumped, they’re not the first parents to find themselves uncertain about The Name.

Could they be stuck because they’ve limited themselves to K names?  Or have they fallen for a choice that doesn’t start with K and fret that breaking with the family tradition might cause problems?

While we wait to learn the name of the newest member of the Kardashian family, let’s check out the other baby names in the news this week:

Poppy – Speaking of delayed baby name announcements, Stephen Moyer finally revealed the names of his twins with Anna Paquin.  Daughter Poppy’s name is popular throughout much of the English-speaking world, but rare in English.  It’s also a nice connection to Lilac, Stephen’s daughter from a previous relationship.
