Kim Kardashian, Kanye West's baby name North West inspires jokes, spoof Twitter handles
New York Daily News ^ | 06/21/2013 | BY MARGARET EBY

Posted on 06/21/2013 7:41:40 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

It didn't take long after Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's baby's name, North West, was leaked on Thursday night before Twitter erupted in jokes.

From the obvious cheap shots ("Did she give birth to a baby or a compass?") to simple photos of the extinct airline carrier by the same name ("First picture of Kim and Kanye's new baby!"), within an hour of the announcement, "North West" was a hot topic for online comedians. Another popular observation? If little Kimye ever has a book or fashion line, she can name it "North by North West"--just like the Hitchcock film starring Cary Grant. ...

In fact, there are already several North West parody Twitter accounts, including @Its_North_West ("You may laugh at my name but i laugh at your bank balance.") and @NorthKimWest.

Kanye West takes the place of Cary Grant in a famous scene from Alfred Hitchcock's 'North by Northwest.' Get it? Because his daughter's name is North West?

They’re both blithering idiots. They could have just sold the baby naming rights to Northwest Airlines and made a bundle (not that they need it, but a big chunk could have gone to charity).

South would be a good name. But I couldn’t imagine calling someone North. :-P

Don’t these people realize the future grief they are creating for this poor child (boy named SUE comes to mind). Might be cute now, but, oh the playground harassment this poor kid will go through can only be imagined.

These filthy scumbag celebrities see children as accessories.Giving a child a name like that constitutes child abuse.

The real grief will come when he realizes his mother is a whore and his father is a racist drunkard.

“Kanye West takes the place of Cary Grant”
_____________________________________________

I have never been into celebrity worship, and have no clue as to who Kanye West is.
If that is a photo of him, I say he looks like a blithering idiot. He shorr ain’t no Cary Grant (sic)

That kid is screwed. It was probably screwed just on the basis of the alarmingly shallow DNA pool, but going through life with a phucked up name will finish it off.

No wonder the country is going South.

No, they’ll market a toy line or clothing line or something called “North, by North-west”. Always thinking about the almighty dollar probably.

No kidding. They didn't even have the decency to give him one of the classic names - like Anquon or Latrell.

Don't expect this made-for-tv relationship to last through production of another offspring.

Maybe it's a plan. Four children could be:

North West

South West

East West

West West

The kid will probably go to some swanky private school where all the other kids have celebrity parents, and they’ll all have names like Apple and Moon Unit, so it’ll be okay.
