America, we enjoyed a few days of KARDASHIAN-free bliss . . . pre-2007-style! But it all came CRASHING down late last night, when Kim and KANYE WEST'Sdaughter's name was revealed.
It's . . . wait for it . . . NORTH WEST. No, I promise, I'm NOT lying.
TMZ claims to have seen the birth certificate . . . but E! is reporting that name too. And since they're the network that airs "Keeping Up With the Kardashians", you'd think they'd be the ones to know for sure.
There'd been a rumor that they might call the baby "North West" a few months ago. At the time, we heard Kanye came up with it and, quote, "likes the way it sounds."
By the way, in March, when we thought "North West" was just a stupid idea the Internet made up, Kim went on "The Tonight Show" and LAUGHED at the name.
When Leno asked her about it, she chuckled, and said, quote, "That is not true. That is not one of the names on our list. But you know what name I DO like? But it probably won't be on [our list] . . .
"I like Easton . . . Easton West? I think that's cute." (Get it? East-and West. It seemed like she was joking about that, too. But apparently she WAS thinking along those lines.)
By the way, North is sort of a weird name for a girl . . . although you could argue it's a weird name PERIOD. If anything, it seems like it'd be a BOY'S name, but Kim wouldn't mind if it was.
When Leno told her Easton sounded like a boy's name . . . she said, quote, "You never know. Boys names are good for girls. I think it's cute." (Here's video from "The Tonight Show" interview. Skip to the 2:40 mark.)
By the way, it's unclear if they made the middle name DONDA . . . after Kanye's mother, who died in 2007. If it IS North Donda West, it would prove two things: That the name is even stupider than originally thought . . . and secondly, Kanye has this woman wrapped around his finger.
But an anonymous "source" tells E! News that there is NO middle name, and that Kim and Kanye are planning on calling her NORI for short.
