Kim Kardashian & Kanye West Pick Baby Name With Meaning

Kim Kardashian and Kanye WestNormally celebrities don't announce their baby name until after a child's arrival (or ever if you're Adele). They keep us guessing and wondering until the big reveal. But Kim Kardashian and Kanye West seem to be doing things a little differently -- they're actually talking baby names.

Though Kim said before that they were going to keep it private, it seems their excitement just may win over. According to, Kim is convinced that she's having a girl, and she and Kanye have already settled on a name for the little princess. It's nothing we would have ever guessed they would choose, and nope, it doesn't start with a "K". Any guesses?

It's Liv. As in actress Liv Tyler, of whom Kanye is reportedly a fan. It's also supposedly after his favorite nightclub in Miami named Liv. Which is ... sweet, I suppose. Inspiration aside, however, it's an adorable name. Not too common, but not bizarre either -- very much in line with Kourtney Kardashian's kids' names -- Mason and Penelope.

Now whether this is really the name they've chosen or not is totally questionable. The website doesn't list a source for this big news, and neither Kim nor Kanye has confirmed it themselves. Plus, we're not even sure she's having a girl. So it's a major leap to think this really is it, and that they've given it up so easily. But it sure is fun to speculate regardless.

And hey, if Kimye has never even considered this name before, then maybe it will give them a good idea.

What do you think of the name Liv for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's baby? What do you think they should name him or her?

Mason was the #2 most popular name last year, so saying it's "not too common" isn't exactly accurate...

Livs a cool name but Penelope sucks. She's gotta live with that awful name.

Liv Kardashian sounds nice but Liv West sounds a bit weird

Liv west. Lol

@ katherine, Mason was born in 09 and it wasn't as popular then. I shudder to say this but I think it got more popular bc of her naming her kid that. All of a sudden mason & greyson just ballooned in the past few yrs since his birth. I don't know why. They r both ugly names. And penelope is cute as well as liv.

Liv is short for Olivia which is already popular.

Penelope is a beautiful name.

I kind of think of the Waltons when I hear Liv.

"Liv" means "life" in Norwegian and is a normal name here. (By the way, Liv Tyler is named after Norwegian actress Liv Ullmann)
