    If it was me, I might hesitate to use it as a first name, but I would have no problem at all using it in the middle. For that matter, I would also use Norman in the middle to honor a family member, no matter how well/poorly it flows with the last name. Since the name North is so special to you, I would not change your plans to use it!

    North as a middle name is perfectly fine : ) I'd still use it, especially since you have such good reason to.

    Definitely! It's just a middle name. If it were a first, this would be a different discussion and I would urge you against it. Unfortunately, I named my son Mason (family homage as well) a couple years before that other Kardashian sparked a Mason virus. Now my Mason says he's going to create an army of Masons, speaking of evil dictators.

    I didn't even have to read past the title. Yes. Use the name you love. Celebrities do not own/"ruin" names. Middle name, first name - use North wherever you want. It's a great name and obviously a pair of celebrities agree (even though the situation they used it in was not so great).

    I'm not a big fan of Kanye or the Kardashians, just for the record.
    You'll probably get a lot of "As in North West?" But as long as you don't mind explaining a few (Many) times, I would go for it. Plus, after the birth announcements go out, the only time people will use/hear his middle name will be when he's in trouble, and at graduation. And most people probably won't choose those moments to question his name.

    Hope this was helpful...
