“(North is) not one of the names on our list,” the mom-to-be said at the time, adding, possibly as a joke, that she preferred the name Easton West.

“I do like Easton — Easton West,” the curvy celeb mused.
Now it looks like her rapper husband got his way after all.

North West is the name listed on the birth certificate from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, according to TMZ. Us Weekly magazine and other media reported they confirmed the name.

The name North plays with rapper Kanye West's last name, though Kim Kardashian had initially said the name was not being considered.

Twitter exploded, of course.

“Kim and Kanye named their baby North West. It’s one of the few things in Kim’s life that hasn’t gone south,” one snarky observer tweeted.

Kim and Kanye named their baby North West. In related news, celebrities still naming their kids awful names,” another tweeted.

Most people were expecting Kim Kardashian and Kanye West to name their daughter, who was born on Saturday, with a name starting with a K. 

 “Really, Kim Kardashian? You named your baby North West? Were Key and Wild taken?” yet another tweeted.

Us Weekly reported the baby has no middle name and that her nickname will be “Nori.” Relatives are calling the baby “gorgeous.” Kim gave birth to the little bundle of celebrity last Saturday — five weeks ahead of schedule.

“I’ve met Kim’s new baby,” cousin Janet Kardashian told the Daily News on Thursday. “She’s our new Kardashian baby! She’s healthy and she’s gorgeous.”

Janet Kardashian said she knows the proud parents will dote on their little North star. For starters, the baby is believed to have entered the world in a maternity suite costing up to $4,000 a day.

“Kim would not have chosen (Kanye) to be a daddy unless he was going to be the best,” she said. “Kim will be a loving, devoted, caring mummy forever.

Before the Thursday bombshell, reports said the baby girl would be named with a “K,” like her mother and aunts. Rumors also had the power pair paying their respects to West’s late mother by choosing “Donda” as a first or middle name.
