The internet is divided over Kim and Kanye’s possible new baby name

Posted in Baby Names.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s fourth child arrived late last week, and fans have their eyes peeled for that first photo and baby name news.

Bear West?

The baby was conceived via IVF and was birthed by a gestational carrier. The bub is a little boy and despite being carried by another (brilliant) woman, he’s Kim and Kanye’s biological son.

Kim and Kanye were already parents to 15-month-old Chicago, five-year-old North and three-year-old Saint. 

“He’s here and he’s perfect!” Kim posted on Twitter, announcing her baby’s birth. “He’s also Chicago’s twin lol I’m sure he will change a lot but now he looks just like her.”

“We celebrated our baby boy about a week ago and now he’s here!” Kim wrote in a more recent Twitter update, sharing photos from her baby shower and a little more about baby number four’s temperament.

“He’s so perfect! Here are some pics of my CBD baby shower. I was freaking out for nothing because he is the most calm and chill of all of my babies so far and everyone loves him so much.

Kim didn’t share a photo of the new baby, nor reveal his name, but she did illustrate the tweet with a bear emoji and now it’s fuelling chatter about what the new little boy is called.

Some fans were convinced the bear emoji was a hint. A sort of teaser which revealed something about the baby name.

“Bear West,” some categorically decided.

“They definitely named him Bear – 1) the bear emoji 2) Chicago Bears,” another person agreed.

Teddy, Ted or Cub were other bear-themed names mentioned as possibilities by followers.

Wild West?

But others still had different – and let’s face it outlandish – ideas on what Kim and Kanye had come up with for baby number four. They included:

  • Zen West
  • Mexico West
  • Sunday Kardashian West
  • Cisco West
  • Law West
  • Angeles West
  • Apollo West
  • Christian West
  • Wild West
  • Robert Kardashian West (after Kim’s late father)

“Name him John”

Of course outlandish is not a huge reach for the family who have already named their children North, Saint and Chicago.

“Freak everyone out and name him John,” one follower cheekily suggested.

Others were simply thrilled that the pair had a healthy baby and were happy to wait until the time was right to hear what their new son was called.

“So excited for your future and your little ones name reveal,” one kind fan posted.

I <3 my mom

What Kim and Kanye have revealed is some new merchandise themed around Mother’s Day. Kanye has hatched some very pricey sweatshirts in honour of his own late mother, Donda.  

The sweats are emblazoned with “I <3 my mom” and “Beautiful mother’s day <3”.

They’ll set you back $240 a pop if you are keen.
