Kim Kardashian and Kanye West finally revealed the name of their daughter, and it’s… Chicago West. Kim announced the choice on her app, and then later on her Instagram story, simply uploading a photo that said “Chicago West.” Like, it makes sense because Kanye is from Chicago, but I know I can’t be the only person who thinks Chicago West sounds like a new up-and-coming hip-hop festival that takes place in various venues throughout the city. Then again, is it any better than North? That’s not for me to say. I guess I can admire them sticking to the theme of daughters with geographical names, and I’m assuming that should they have another son, they’ll have to continue with their “sons with Biblical names” trend. I’m calling it now, Kanye and Kim’s second son will be named Prophet West.
Here’s the picture Kim uploaded, that is sure to inspire a million rip-offs on Etsy as we speak.
This looks like I print I could find hanging in the dorm room of any college freshman.
TMZ reported that Kim and Kanye are calling Chicago by the nickname Chi, pronounced “Shy”, which anyone who’s ever listened to one song by any Chicago rapper should know anyway. Kim confirmed the nickname by retweeting this tweet that basically says as much:
And to everyone who thinks it’s literally pronounced as CHI. No. It’s “Shy”

That being said, didn’t Kim and Kanye also say upon North’s birth that her nickname would be “Nori”? Because I’ve literally never heard either of them refer to her as Nori so far.
Congrats to Kim and Kanye, though. They could have done a lot worse as far as celebrity baby names go. I just feel bad for Chicago because that’s definitely one major city she can never live in.
