Forget Baby Name Books! The Rumor Mill Named Kim Kardashian's Daughter

When Kim Kardashian was nearing the end of her pregnancy, everyone was dying to know what she and Kanye West were going to name their daughter.

Eventually, the name "North" surfaced and a lot of people (including us) kind of laughed it off, like 'they wouldn't really name their daughter 'North West,' would they?' It didn't take long for the Northwest airline memes to surface and we all thought it was just another ridiculous rumor.

Turns out, KimYe thought the same thing. In her new interview with British GQ, Kim explains that everyone started believing the rumors and eventually, the name grew on them.

"It was a rumor in the press and we'd never really considered it seriously, at all, but Kanye and I were having lunch right over there at that table [at the Mercer Hotel in NYC] about a year ago and Pharrell came over to us and said 'Oh, my God, are you guys really going to call your daughter North? That is the best name.' I said 'No we're not, that's just a rumor,'" she recalls in her interview with the mag.

Apparently, Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour had heard the rumors, too, and she told Kim she thought the name was brilliant. "Kanye and I looked at one another and just laughed. I guess at that point it sort of stuck," Kim explained.

We have to admit, we were just as skeptical as anyone when we first heard the name, but now it's totally growing on us and we think it's actually really cute.
