Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have gone in a new direction with the name of their second child by not naming him after a direction. The couple revealed on Monday that North's baby brother will be called Saint, which the Guardian reports is a little more common than North: There were 32 Saints born in 2014, according to Social Security Administration records, while FiveThirtyEight points out there were only 13 Norths. Another interesting tidbit from FiveThirtyEight: Santos is Spanish for Saint, and that name is, relatively speaking, quite popular, with 235 babies named Santos born in the States last year.

The Week reports that one of those Saints was the son of Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz and model Meagan Camper. After the Aug. 20 birth, Wentz said the boy was given the name because he was gracious enough not to show up until after his tour finished. The name "will only be a problem, I feel, if he actually became a saint," Wentz said. "That would be really weird." (More Kim Kardashian stories.)
