Kim Kardashian and Kanye West might name their baby something normal this time

Posted in Baby Names.

Kim and Kanye might have run out of names ahead of the birth of baby number four via gestational carrier.

Keeping up

With Kanye West appearing at the forefront of Keeping Up With The Kardashians for the first time, participating in his inaugural confessional interview, we’re finding out more about this famous couple than ever before.

We’re glimpsing the relationship dynamic between the pair as they sort out Kanye’s beefs with other rappers in Season 16’s first episode. They also talk a little more about baby number four.

You probably already know that the pair like to choose unconventional names for their children, and during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in Las Vegas Kim, flanked by sisters Khloé and Kourtney, shared a little about the names she and Kanye are currently tossing up for this incoming little boy.

“I was Googling Armenian boys’ names last night, and I couldn’t really find anything,” Kim admitted. (The Kardashians have Armenian heritage).

“I was truthfully thinking about just naming him Rob, after my brother, Rob,” she continued.

Yeah but no

That said, she figured Rob didn’t quite gel with the rest of her kids’ names and she’s got a point.

“But then it’s kind of like North, Saint, Chicago, Rob. It doesn’t really go, but I was really feeling that or like Robert. I like Rob West.”

Kim’s referring to the existing kiddos she and Kanye are parents to – five-year-old North, three-year-old Saint and one-year-old Chicago West.

So what did the current reigning Rob think of having a tiny twin?

“My brother approved it, so that’s like our one kind of name,” Kim said, not sounding super into it, to be honest. (Robert is also the name of Kim, Kourtney, Khloé and Rob’s father.)

The Kardashian women also revealed that they take it slow and steady when it comes to settling on the final baby name choices.

“We all weigh in,” Kim explained. “I definitely take a family survey but it’s usually after the baby is born. We’re trying to figure out what the baby looks like. I usually go about three or four days nameless until I feel like it really connects with the baby.”

Good morning ?

Kourtney confirmed this noting that her youngest son – who is now four – was called something else for quite some time.

“I did a week the last time. I would try out different names on different dates. One day, Reign, his name was Preston for one full day,” Kourt said.

“I was like, ‘I know in my soul his name is Reign,’ and Scott [Disick] didn’t believe me,” she recalls, name checking her ex-partner aka the only man she’s ever been in love with (as revealed on this week’s episode of Keeping Up.)
