Celebrity Sightings In Los Angeles - September 1, 2014

Naming children is one of the most important decisions you can make for your child. When it came out that Kim Kardashian was pregnant by then-fiance, Kanye West, people thought it would be funny and ridiculous to name the baby North.


But Kanye and Kim didn’t think that would ever be an option. She explains in British GQ for their ‘Woman of the Year‘ issue that:

“It was a rumour in the press and we’d never really considered [the name North] seriously at all. But Kanye and I were having lunch … and Pharrell came over to us and said, ‘Oh my god, are you guys really going to call your daughter North? That is the best name.’”

“Then a little while later Anna Wintour came over and asked the same thing. She told us, ‘North is a genius name.’ Kanye and I looked at one another and just laughed. I guess at that point it sort of stuck.”

The name, North, grew on us! Not that it matters, but we dig the explanation. And Pharrell can really do no wrong, right?
