Kanye West and Kim Kardashian went into a new direction with naming their baby girl. According to TMZ, Kimye named their baby North West. No, we are not kidding.

It was rumored that the couple would go with the name North, but nothing has been confirmed by either of the stars’ reps.

US Weekly is reporting that North is on the rumored birth certificate with no middle name. Apparently, Kimye will call her “Nori” for short.

The new parents left Cedars-Sinai Thursday night (June 20) and were headed to an undisclosed home in Los Angeles, according to E! News.

Kim gave birth to little Nori last Saturday (June 15), five weeks before her due date. The baby girl weighed in “just under 5 pounds.”

Online reactions to the baby’s directional name has erupted on Twitter.

One follower tweeted, “So I’m assuming that North West won’t be a One Direction fan?”

Even a fake Darth Vader cracked a joke about Kimye’s baby name, writing, “Kim and Kanye named their baby North West. In related news, the Death Star now has a good enough reason to destroy Earth.”

And the jokes keep coming. One person tweeted, “I hope Kim & Kanye’s daughter makes a perfume one day. I hope it’s called North by North West. I hope it smells like airplane fuel and fear.”

Finally, one commenter left this biting tweet: “So Blue Ivy got the stripper name, and North West got the direction to the strip club? Nice, team work.”

So what do you think of Kimye naming their baby North West (“Nori” for short)? Tell us in the comments below.
