Kim Kardashian Reveals Detestable Reason Her Baby Is Named North (VIDEO)

Kim Kardashian

Ever since Kim Kardashian named her baby North, people have been wondering, like, WHY?! Well, apparently there is some logic behind the baby name she chose. Not a whole lot of logic, but some teensy weensy half-molecule of logic-ita. (That's logic in the diminutive.) And it's not just that she and Kanye consider North their "highest point" of love. While on a family trip to Greece, a still-pregnant Kim tells her family that she and Kanye "want" to give their baby a name that starts with K, which would keep with family tradition, but they just can't do it. And you'll seriously never guess why.

Kim told her familia:

If we name our kid with a K name, which is kind of what we want, mainly just because Kanye and I are K's, but then our kid, if it's a K, they'll call us the KKK.

Bwhaaa!! I'm sorry, WHAT?!

"That's a little crazy," step-brother Brody replies, sensibly.

Whoa. Is that the weirdest justification ever for not giving your baby a K name? Also, there are so many other non-K names that they could have gone with that didn't make their baby sound like an airline or an ordinal direction on a compass.

I can't imagine that people -- at least anyone worth paying any attention to -- would have called the trio the name of a horrible white supremacist group. But, hey, Kim has had to deal with more hate than I'll ever deal with in a lifetime, so perhaps she knows better.

Maybe if she'd given the baby a K first name and middle initial, and the baby went by Kardashian, that would be a little strange. I mean, monogrammed towels wouldn't look so good. But I think a K name would have been fine -- too expected, though. Too much like branding your baby rather than naming it.

How sad that Kim and Kanye are paranoid to the point where they think people would call them KKK!

Would they do that?! Damn. That's sick.

Do you buy Kim's explanation for not giving North a K name?

I see nothing wrong with that justification.

Considering what dicks people generally are to that family, it's actually very smart that they thought of that.

I went to school with a girl with the initials KKK and she was always embarrassed by it. My s.i.l. and her two girls spell out to be k.k.k. they didn't realize it til later. Nothing wrong with Kim's reason. Especially since they are famous.

mande... manderspanders

the title is misleading... this is about why they didn't choose a K name.  We still really don't know why they chose "North"

So their choices were only a K name or a stupid name?

Elaine Cox

she has had to deal with hate....i wonders whose fault THAT this day and age of social media of course people would come up with calling the baby that but i find it hard to believe lil miss sex tape is really thinking that

I see how it works... Can't go with a K name.. So the only option is a direction. Totally understand.

Why wouldn't she think that?  You know there are people who are already calling Kate & Williams son "Gal" because of his initials so is her KKK fear really that far a jump in logic?

I'm totally confused. Do people call her and her sisters KKK? Or any of the other siblings? Like that just makes absolutely no sense to me. And it still leaves no justification for naming the kid north. That's not a level of anything, north is a direction. Smh...

I'm not a fan of Kim Kardashian--AT ALL--but this actually seems completely reasonable to me.
