Kim and Kanye shock everyone, everywhere by naming their baby North West.
In other news, the sun rises in the east. Pun intended.
I mean, come on. Why are we always so shocked when celebrities name their babies less-than-“normal” names? It’s not a new thing. Facebook and Twitter were crazy this a.m. with everything from jokes about the baby’s name to downright expressions of hatred for the baby’s parents because “how could they name a precious baby girl North West?!”
NEWSFLASH. “Real people” name their kids terrible names, too. Look around your own Facebook and I bet you’ll find many.
Because names are subjective to people’s tastes – just like art, food and fashion.
It’s just that no one makes fun of “real people parents” and/or tells them they think their kid’s name is stupid. At least not on social media/to their face.
There have been many times I wish it were acceptable to do just that. Especially when the baby’s name is something like Lauren, but the parents have chosen to spell it something like, “Larryne.”
And, yeah yeah – I know trash-talking celebrities is more acceptable for more than a few reasons, but maybe lighten it up a bit when it comes to their innocent kids.
Besides, we all know North West is gonna have enough to deal with, with those two (parents, not names).
