(Newser) – Another celebrity baby name enters the history books, and let's just say this one is directional. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have named their baby girl North West, as in the compass direction, claims TMZ, which reports that's what is listed on the birth certificate. A source tells Us Magazine it's true, and adds there's no middle name. The source tells the mag, "They will call her Nori for short." No word yet on how the Kardashian women (Kourtney, Khloe, Kylie, Kendall, Kris) feel about the break in the K-letter tradition. Kim and baby finally left the hospital overnight, Radar reports; click to find out where they have to live.

poor little girl. stupid thoughtless parents. you can bet she will be bullied and ridiculed in school some day, all because she has parents who think they're cute and clever. I wonder if either of them asked themselves if they would like to go through life with that absurd name???
