In news I would file under the “no surprise here” category, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have apparently picked out a very nontraditional (re: fucking weird) name for the spawn currently cooking in Kim’s oven. Apparently, the expectant parents are keen on naming their firstborn fetus North. Yes. As in the direction. They are naming their child North West.
Let that sink in a moment.
Ok, not to be negative, but their baby name sucks. I’m so sick of “trendy” or “unique” baby names. Why is it that everyone is so hellbent on giving their kids weird names these days? Do people just assume their children will be worthless people who accomplish nothing in their lives? I’m going to assume they do, because there’s no way in hell “North West” will ever be written on any type of trophy, or diploma, or anything for that matter.
Kim and Kanye had a large pool of name options to choose from. I’m sure Kim could have stuck with the Kardashian tradition and named her baby something starting with a “K.” She could have named it “Robert” after her brother and late father. She could have chosen a normal-ish name, like her sister, my idol, Kourtney.
Either way, naming their kid North West will only cement its status as the biggest mistake in history. First of all, it has Kim and Kanye for parents, so it was doomed from the start. Having a terrible name is only the chocolate icing on the vanilla cake.
Congratulations to the expectant parents?
