By Tim Swift, The Baltimore Sun
Happy Summer folks! It's gonna be a long day because if you believe TMZ's sources inside the maternity ward, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s newborn baby girl will be named North West. (Actually it's just the Summer Solstice.) The poor child now vies for stupidest celebrity baby name with the likes Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale and Kal-El Cage. Meanwhile, LeBron James is celebrating after his second NBA title after defeating the Spurs last night. But another sports star -- the NFL's Aaron Hernandez -- isn't so cheery as police are expected to arrest him today in connection with a murder case. Welcome to your online trends report for Friday, June 21, 2013.

Why: The US gossip site TMZ says it has confirmed the name of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's newborn baby girl.
