‘The View’: Kris Jenner tries to defend Kim Kardashian’s ‘North West’ baby name

The ViewMrs. Carter: Sometimes, the best defense that you can make is saying nothing at all.

Maybe there was a better option for Kris Jenner outside of appearing on “The View” to talk about her new granddaughter, right? This appearance really did not end up doing her any favors … and the same can be said for her famous daughter Kim Kardashian, and her already-famous daughter in North West. This name has been a target of ridicule ever since it was first announced, a name obviously designed for the sake of attention without thinking of the ramifications that would come with it.

When Barbara Walters asked Kris about this bizarre choice of a name, her response was that it was something that Kim and Kanye West felt symbolized the highest point in their relationship. She also argued that no one is going to walk down the street and call the child by her full name.

Unfortunately for Kris, we and many others disagree with that claim. Once some of North’s classmates in school start to figure out what her name means, they will be all over it like nobody’s business. We also think that the questions are going to be inevitable now that the next child will be named “South” (which the airline will likely appreciate). Sure, this really is a “to each their own” sort of situation, but at least Kim’s sister Kourtney decided to give her children relatively normal first names in Mason and Penelope, only to then change it up with strange middle names like Dash and Scotland.
