Kim Kardashian named her baby … wait for it … North West. (Twitter)
By Natalie Marusin
Just when we thought celebrity baby names couldn’t get any worse (hello, Apple, Dweezle, Jermajesty, Kal-El, Blue Ivy), Hollywood strikes again. That’s right, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s baby girl’s name has been revealed. And the little girl’s name is … wait for it …. North. As in North West. What?
Although the couple has yet to officially confirm the name (and Kim previously denied the rumors of a direction-related name for her baby on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno), media reports say it’s a done deal (and the girl will be nicknamed Nori). Naturally, the Twitterverse is already buzzing with jokes about the name — here are 10 we can’t stop laughing at.
“Make fun of Kim kardashian’s name choice for North West if you want, but that baby is going straight to the top. And slightly to the left.” — @neversh0utemma
“I’ve got 99 problems but at least my name isn’t North West.” — @collegestudent

So, what do you get the directionally named baby who has everything? Shop these stores with babies and kids coupons. (Kardashians may not need coupons, but the rest of us do!)

"I never really used coupons before...I never wanted to take the time to look and see if I buy anything that might have some deals. Didn't think it would matter much to save a dollar here or there but I have saved way more than that with ShopAtHome.com. It is great!"
