Days after Kim Kardashian and Kanye West announced their daughter’s unique name, the reality star’s mother has gone on the defensive to explain the meaning behind it. Kris Jenner recently stopped by ‘The View’ to talk about the joyous occasion of birth and why she loves the name, North.

“I love the name North. I’m pro North, absolutely,” said Kris. “The way [Kim] explained it to me was that North means highest power, and she says that North is their highest point together and I thought that was really sweet.”

Jenner added of the name,”It’s North West, but you don’t walk around calling somebody, ‘Hi North West.’┬áIt’s just North.” According to the proud grandmother, Kanye and Kim have no middle name for their daughter, but they do have a nickname.

Kim and Kanye welcomed North into the world on June 15, 2013. She is their first child together.

  1. Hello there I am so glad I found your webpage, I
    really found you by error, while I was searching on Askjeeve
    for something else, Anyhow I am here now and would just like to say
    thanks for a remarkable post and a all round thrilling
    blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to read it all at the moment but I have book-marked it and also included your RSS feeds, so when I have
    time I will be back to read a lot more, Please do keep up the fantastic job.

  2. Who cares what the baby name is. It isn’t yall baby so for yall to be going back and forth saying it’s a ridiculous name is crazy.They have the right to name their baby whatever they want as well as other parents.I’m sure the baby is gorgeous regardless

  3. I wasn’t a fan of North but it’s growing on me. I like the way she put it and the nickname “Nori” is pretty cute!

    • i would have loved if he had included his mother in his daughter’s name -North Donna West would have been very pretty and ppl would not have been so quick to pass judgement on North West

  4. I personally wouldn’t name my child North or Blue but she isn’t my baby girl. I’m sure she’s adorable and can’t wait to see a picture of her.

  5. Any time you have to explain why you named your kids what you named them, then they probably have a ridiculous name.

  6. I know they don’t have to prove anything to me but i’m just saying; there are many other names that could symbolize what they want the name to mean. So what? The name just happen to have a relation to her last name, really…There is no way someone can say the last name had ntn to do with the first.

  7. They sound crazy, and she sounds crazier for co-signing that mess. Let’s see how cute little Nori is already! She has a life sentence with two loons.

  8. Who cares why they named her what they named her, it doesn’t make the name more interesting, it’s still a ludicrous name & meaning. Those two are a bunch of loony birds. Unless a pic of baby North is shown, I don’t want to see these two.

  9. I love the people who think that money gives people a pass and lack there of dooms them! Rich people can names their kids whatever they want to but “poor or ghetto” people must choose names carefully. Kim is the daughter of a prominent attourney and her claim to fame is a sex tape. Condoleeza Wright, I don’t know if it’s “ghetto” or what assumption was made when her resume was viewed, but she was hired!This is classism at it’s worst. If your parents name you Shaniqua, should you give up and accept your fate!

  10. What i dont get is what happens when you have a second, third or forth child. Do they get these “special meaning/symbol of our relationship” names too. I love unisex names for little girls but I agree with @Ebony Starr…North is just not a cute name for a girl.

  11. Thank God both parents are rich and North probably will never have to worry about money. Imagine that name on a resume…smh.

    • North is as ridiculous as Blue (I adore me some BlueIvy), Pilot, Bear (I babysit a white toddler named Bear), Rainbow, Apple, Concrecia, Presheous (pronounced precious), N’yzir (my cousin is named that), all other names with ‘ & – in them, Puma, Mars, Seven, Princess, Star, Egypt (I do love me some Egypt Dean), Morrocan, Yessica, Inudafu, Lukenseia & many others I do not feel like listing. You like the name, you like it; but to say one is better over another simply because you like it; please!

  12. Glad Kris explained the meaning but North still doesn’t sit well with me. Celebraties give their kids the strangest names from Apple, Denim, to Blue Ivy, Now North West. Maybe its their inner creativity that we regular folks cant understand, but I was sure being that both of their names started with K and all the Kardashian girls started with a K they would be sure to give her a cute K name…But Oh well North it is, I guess it will grow on us and Im sure we will hear stranger names in the future. SMH

  13. Kim said that she had all of these “K” names picked out, when she was married to Humphries. She gets with Kanye ane the find “the highest point of themselves!” Kris’ wheels are spinning as to how to market North West. This baby is her newest gold mine! As for people not saying “Hi North West” people will tease her if her name was North Jones. North is a strange first name for a girl.

    • I’m still baffled that she actually let this guy make a kid with her. (PS: I really would like to say it a different way, but thought I’d say it the long way as not to offend the over sensitive.)

    • It’s cute that the name has meaning to them, but paired with West? If her last name wasn’t West, it *probably* would have been a *little* better.

      • NORTH THE HIGHEST OF WHAT…NOTHING…..THE HIGHEST HEIGHT FOR THE BOTH OF THEM TO FALL FROM…AND THEY ARE GOING TO FALL…OFF THERE HIGH HORSE….BELIEVE THAT~!~

        • You see it too huh? The choosing of the name went like this: Kanye: “what’s the highest you can be where it’s above everyone & everything?” Kim: God. Kanye: I’m already God, so what else? Kim: well, I guess up north, then. Kanye: that’s it, we’ll name her north.

  14. Kim said that she had all of these “K” names picked out, when she was married to Humphries. She gets with Kanye ane the find “the highest point of themselves!” Kris’ wheels are spinning as to how to market North West. This baby is her newest gold mine!

  15. WHAT NORTH WEST IS DUMB IT DONT SOUND RIGHT I THINK IT WAS KANYE IDEA HE GETS WHAT HE WANTS POOR KIM HAS TO DO EVERYTHING HE SAYS CHANGING HER CLOTHES PICKING THE BABY NAMES WHATS NEXT……HMMMM NOT TALKING TO HER FAMILY AND FANS OH YEAH THATS ALREADY HAPPENED

  16. I have no problem with the name, funny enough. North= prosperity, power…I can go on and yes, no one goes around calling someone North West. Its just simple North or Nori.

    I have heard worse names in my lifetime- believe me.
