I guessed Messiah but they managed to supersede my expectations. I can’t blame em either.

I actually remember people liking the name Saint before Kim and Kanye used it. Some people just seem to be jumping on the hate bandwagon.
I actually liked North (though I preferred it on a by) and I like Saint as well, though personally I’d never use it because I’m not Christian.

I do think that it suits them and I too am a fan of North! Just one thing though, Kourtney is Kim’s elder sister.
Saint West sounds rather dapper to me anyway

There was a recent thread for this name, and as someone who’d said it wasn’t a good choice for a non-celebrity baby name, this is just hilarious. 😀

Is it wrong that I love the name North?

I like St. John, St. James, St. Christopher etc., but don’t like Saint as a name itself.

Saint doesn’t really bother me as a name, it’s not my cup of tea, but compared to the name North West it’s not too terrible. I have seem combos with Saint as a middle that I like, but just not for me to use irl. I do like the name North, for a boy, but not if your last name is a direction as well.

I’m looking forward to Saint Wentz and Saint West attending the same school, given their names sound so very similar!

^haha good point maggiemary. If you abbreviate Saint the name is still directional: SW. So they have North and South.

@ashbee – totally didn’t even pick up on the SW until you pointed it out.

Saint is a bit terrible, in my opinion. I mean, it’s just so easy to make fun of. Rhymes with so many things… ain’t. Then “he’s no saint”… Or the irony when he does something wrong. Can you imagine Saint’s mugshot? Saint getting checked into rehab? Come on. St. Julien makes sense to me, as you are honoring a specific person. Saint by itself feels like too much of a label. You could have a whole family… Yeezus, Saint, Sinner, Messiah, Satan… bahahaha… Would have been better to use this name in the middle, and give him something a tad more normal as the first name. But then again, it does feel like less of a joke than North West… 😛

Saint West is great. Now look at their initials. NW, SW…. Just like a compass!
