Kim Kardashian Reveals the Two Celebrities Who Changed Her World

Kim KardashianWell, if you all thought that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West sat around thinking up baby names and when they hit on "North" they had a big guffaw and then decided, hey, wouldn't that be a cool way to mess with everyone's heads ... you'd be wrong. Apparently the two didn't come up with North West's name name AT ALL.


The name North had been bandied about in the press for the obvious reasons that North West would be a funny name. Who knows who first came up with it -- maybe even someone on Twitter.

But celebs read the press too, you know, and it turned out that Pharrell Williams had heard about the North West rumor and saw Kim and Kanye out at the Mercer Hotel in Manhattan and went up to them and asked if they were really naming their baby North. The two had also heard the rumor, just had not taken the name seriously (who would?).

Then Pharrell added, "That name is the best."

That got the old noggins ticking for Kimye, who began to see the name in a new light.

But what sealed the deal was, a little while later, Vogue editor Anna Wintour came over and asked the same question. Because apparently everyone is reading the same gossip magazines.

Anna also gave her stamp of approval on the name, even going so far as to call it "genius." (I assume she was joking. Hope?)

This time Kimye couldn't ignore fate -- clearly the universe was pushing them to give their baby this bizarre moniker. Good thing Anna Wintour didn't come up and be all, "I heard you're naming your child Smorgasbord. Genius, sheer genius!"

So, basically Pharrell Williams and Anna Wintour named Kimye's baby -- though the press has to take some credit too.

Wonder what other rumors we can come up with that will soon become reality in the world of Kim and Kanye. C'mon, let's come up with a good one.

Did you ever think this is the way North was named?
