Parents: Kanye West and Kim Kardashian When the pregnant reality TV starlet Kim Kardashian appeared on the "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" in March 2013, the fashionista laughed off reports that her "Yeezus" rapper beau really wanted to name their baby "North." She said it was out of the question and instead joked that she was fond of the name "Easton." Get it? As in, "Easton West." But soon after the baby girl's premature birth on June 15, 2013, the child's birth certificate revealed that her name was indeed North. Her nickname is said to be Nori, the Japanese word for seaweed. Most reports indicated that they would be giving the baby girl a name that began with a K and others joked that she would be named Knorth. Perhaps her favorite film will be Alfred Hitchcock's 1959 thriller "North by Northwest." Not very subtle, we know, but hey, subtlety has never been this power couple's strong suit.
