6 Reasons Why North West Isn't A Bad Name After All (Photos)

It seems like fans really can’t get over the fact that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have chosen a rather untraditional baby name for their newborn daughter. While many had their bets on Kai West or Kaidence Donda West, Kim and Kanye have decided to go with North West.

Yes, North West. That wasn’t a typo.

While I know what you’re probably thinking at this point (because it’s what I’m thinking, too), let’s take a moment and stop thinking about all the ways poor Nori (the nickname they will call her by) is going to be bullied and made fun of while in school, and let’s try to think of the positive that will come out of having a name like hers until that is, she decides to legally change her name on her own (which I’m sure will happen). Plus, according to Name Berry, the name isn’t so unusual after all:

North is a name that’s long been used, albeit very quietly, a name with a certain purity and strength. It’s a good choice if you’re from, say, Wisconsin or Maine, love winter or are an avid skier, or if you just want a name that’s both very familiar and very unusual.

Check out our six reasons why North isn’t a bad name after all below. And also, congratulations to Apple Martin for no longer having the worst celebrity baby name on Earth. You’ve been redeemed!

    They'll always know where to find Baby North. When she starts crawling all they need to do is follow her by going north west.

    If Kanye and Kim decide on having another baby, they can always continue with their directional trend and name him or her GPS West (and it's even a unisex name, too!).

    North West is short, sweet, simple, and to the point (like, literally). Kanyetta Krist Donda Kardashian-West just sounds like someone with too many multiple personality disorders, right?

    North is a rather positive name as hopefully their baby will always be looking "up," as her direction suggests. Here are North's parents trying to figure out their baby's name with directional poses back in February. South East? North South? South West?

    At least it's not Key West.
