Though Media Take Out claimed to know the name of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's baby, reports by TMZ, People and E! News have confirmed that the actual name of the newborn is North West. As of 6:25 p.m. on June 20, TMZ reported that North West is the name listed on the birth certificate at Cedars Sinai Medical Center, where Kim gave birth to their daughter on June 15. At 10:15 p.m., People reported that a "source" had confirmed the name. At 9:06 p.m., an hour before People's report was released, E! News reported that a source close to the family said that, "They will call her [the baby] Nori for short."
Rumors spread around the blogosphere in previous months that Kim and Kanye would name their baby either "North West" or "East West," which Kim denied, according to People. Neither Kim nor Kanye or their representatives have confirmed the baby's name themselves.
At 4:59 a.m. on June 21, E! News exclusively reported that Kim, Kanye and baby Nori were leaving the hospital and that the "trio" was in good spirits. Despite the fact that Kim gave birth five weeks early, People reports that baby and mother are doing fine and are without complications.
