Why Kim and Kanye named their daughter North West

While Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s daughter’s name has been the punchline of jokes since it was announced, they say the name is metaphorical, not geographical.

“North” simply means “up”, the pair say, meaning that there is nothing better. “What’s north of north? Nothing,” Kimye said, according to a source who spoke to TMZ.

The name is said to represent the "pinnacle" of the couple’s relationship because they are at the height of happiness together.

While North will be called Nori for short, her parents also refer to her as their “North Star”.

But it seems Kim wasn’t a fan of the name at first. While Kanye threw the name North out there very early on, Kim told Jay Leno that the name was out of the question.
