In a recent interview, Kim Kardashian revealed that North’s name wasn’t actually their own choice, but was suggested by the famous American comedian, Jay Leno.
In a Question and Answer Session with her younger sister, Kylie Jenner, Kim shared that she was initially reluctant to name the baby North, however, it ultimately grew on her and seemed like the perfect name for her new-born. She said,
“North took me, like, a week to name her. Not a week, but, like, four or five days. I actually got it from Jay Leno, who made that as a joke. And I was like,
‘No way, I would never name my daughter that.’ Like, I said that on his show. Everyone was coming up to me like, ‘It’s such a cool name. You should really think about it.’ And then Pharrell had, like, all these meanings.”
The KKW Beauty CEO further continued, “They really become the name that you name them”.
As the number of family members increased and the new ones came along, the decision of choosing the perfect name didn’t get easier, according to the beauty mogul. Saint, Chicago, and Psalm took their time, just like their elder sister, for getting a name that suited them the best.
Kim shared, “So, Saint I couldn’t think of anything either. And we got books and we were sitting in there…it just came. Kanye came up with Saint. And then Chicago took me, like, two weeks.”
The Q&A session progressed with the discussions about the kids as Kylie did her makeup and Kim sat beside her, answering the inquiries. Another question that popped up was which one of the Kardashian sisters was their mom, Kris’s, favorite.
The mother of 4 believed that Kylie was the answer, however, the 22 years old seemed to think otherwise. Kylie said, “I think you’re her O.G., you know? She definitely likes us the same, but if we’re being funny…I, like, treat her—she’s like me and I treat her like the queen of the world.”
