North West, the newest crazy baby name

Updated: June 24, 2013 12:53 IST

We thought rapper Kanye West was joking when he announced a few months ago that the daughter he was expecting with fiancee Kim Kardashian would be named North West. It seems that he wasn't. Baby Kimye, who arrived five weeks early on June 15, is reportedly going to be officially known as North, last name West. She will reportedly be called Nori at home. In contrast, her cousins, Kourtney Kardashian's children with Scott Disick, are prosaically named Penelope and Mason.

Little Miss West, who is said to be brunette just like her reality TV star mother, is the latest celebrity baby to be saddled with an extraordinary name.

Bob Geldof wasn't liking Mondays, or whichever day of the week it was when his three girls with Paula Yates were born. Consider the names he bestowed on them – Fifi Trixiebell, Peaches Honeyblossom and Little Pixie. Yates took her baby naming talents with her when she left Geldof for INXS frontman Micahel Hutchence. The troubled singer killed himself soon after, and Paula herself died four years later, leaving her daughter with Hutchence to be raised by her ex-husband. The little girl fitted right in with Geldof's gang of girls. Her name – Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily. We're not even going to think about an equivalent moniker for Baby B.
