Kim Kardashian, Kanye West name baby girl 'North West'

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have named their baby daughter North West

Despite rumors Kim Kardashian and boyfriend Kanye West would keep with the 'K' theme and name their new daughter -- possibly even Kaidence Donda, in honor of Kanye's late mother -- they've gone in a different direction.

North, to be exact.

TMZ is reporting that the name on the birth certificate is North West.

People magazine confirmed the news with a source close to the Kardashian family.

And a source told UsWeekly that the couple have already given their daughter a nickname - "Nori for short".

The 32-year-old reality star gave birth to North West on June 15 in the $3,320-a-night maternity suite at the Cedars Sinai hospital in Los Angeles.
