Kim Kardashian and Kanye West reportedly wanted to name their baby North. As in North West.

Besides being ridiculous, this makes us wonder, if West had additional kids, would he name them based on all the directions of the compass? South, East and West West? Probably not.

Sources close to the reality star have shut down the ‘North’ rumours, first reported by the Sun, which said the rapper, 35, thought it sounded good with his last name. However, omg! Yahoo reports that the couple will not be naming their child North.

Previous reports said that the couple would be giving their child, due in July, a moniker that begins with a ‘K’, just like mommy and daddy. Here, we’re a fan of Kid. As in Kid Kardashian.

It wouldn’t be the oddest baby name we’ve seen. Recently, Playboy model Holly Madison named her daughter Rainbow Aurora; Jessica Simpson opted for a masculine name for her baby girl, calling her Maxwell Drew; and then, there’s Frank Zappa’s legendary name choices: Moon Unit, Dweezil, Ahmet Emuukha Rodan and Diva Thin Muffin Pigeen.

In other Kardashian news, the 32-year-old is still embroiled in her divorce battle with NBA player Kris Humphries and reportedly sat for a nine-hour deposition with their attorneys earlier last week in which she said she loved Humphries at the time she married him, TMZ reported.

The site said Humphries blew off the deposition because of basketball practice and travel conflicts.

Humphries is seeking an annulment of their 72-day marriage based on the notion that Kardashian defrauded him when they wed to boost ratings for her E! series. Kardashian has rejected these claims, and the trial is set for May 6. Humphries said that he won’t be missing the date even if his basketball team is in the midst of playoffs.

She’s hoping this whole ordeal will be wrapped up before Kid Kardashian is born.
