Kim Kardashian West and husband Kanye West are currently expecting baby number two, a son, who is due on Christmas Day. The famous couple are already parents to two-year-old North West whose names made headlines (because North + West = cardinal directions), but the reason behind the name “North” is actually super sweet — because it’s the highest point. That’s quite aspirational for a toddler, but hey, it certainly is a creative baby name.

During Kim’s appearance on The Ellen Show, the reality star revealed that there was definitely a baby name she liked, though she’s not sure what her husband’s take on it was, and yes, it is once again related to a cardinal direction. “I do like the name Easton,” Kim said to Ellen. “I don’t think my husband likes that name, but I do like it.”

But to keep the crowd guessing, Kim followed up by saying, “I don’t think we’ll go another direction. It’s definitely not ‘South.’ Every time someone says ‘South,’ I just want to roll my eyes.”


We wonder what little Nori would think of the potential name for her little brother. Kim uploaded this super sweet picture of North in a little Minnie Mouse dress with her gorgeous curls loose onto Instagram just a day ago with the caption, “6 AM.”
