Kim and Kanye and the Story Behind the Baby Name

Kim and Kanye announce there's a story behind the baby name of North West, their baby daughter. Really, there's a story behind vacations and living in the house from hell, but a name like North West, how could there be a story behind that? People are always naming their children after Hollywood actors, and other names. Recently, a woman in another country named her twins boys, George Bush and Barack Obama. I guess naming your child after a direction is no different than naming them after a season, Winter, Spring, Summer, Autumn or months of the year, April, June, July, (Julio or Julia). 

 In Hollywood, I guess anything is possible. The last story I watched about a direction was the movie, North by NorthWest starring Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint. North by Northwest is a tale of mistaken identity, with an innocent man pursued across the United States by agents of a mysterious organization who want to stop his interference in their plans to smuggle out microfilm containing government secrets.

I wonder if baby North West has a case of mistaken identity?  Then again she'll have a great social media presence when she grows up, imagine facebook and twitter names, North by North West.

Only in Hollywood, only in Hollywood.
