On the latest episode of KUWK, Kim is shown welcoming the newest addition to her family with Kanye West – baby Chicago! The fans of the show were also able to find out what other name options there were for the now 9-month-old daughter.
During the episode, Kim tells her sisters that she seriously considered naming her: ‘Italy, Milan, and Rome.’
In fact, she confessed that she ‘scoured a map’ for other names related to geographical places without too much success.
The mother of three then went on to share that she and Kanye also considered ‘Zodiac signs and biblical names’ for instance ‘Aaron and Abel.’
But in the end, she was not that much of a fan of those either.
And the hunt for the perfect moniker continued!
Kim tells sister Kourtney that ‘I got the most ridiculous ideas – ‘Queen’ and ‘Vuitton’ and ‘This.’ Kanye’s cousin was like, ‘Miracle,’ and I am like, ‘Miracle West’?! That is like Miracle Whip, and that is the biggest stripper name of all time. And then he is like, ‘What about ‘Precious’?’ and I was like, ‘Clearly we do not have the same taste in names.’’
But when the parents finally settled on Chicago, Kim thought everybody would say that name was crazy!
‘Everyone is going to be like, ‘Oh my god, that is the craziest name!’ Then they are going to go crazy. Then they will get used to it, and they will be like, ‘Oh, it’s normal.’’
Well, she was right, because it seems like in comparison to the other options, Chicago is definitely the least bizarre name choice!
Later on in the episode, Kim explained the meaning behind the moniker.
‘My beautiful, little baby girl Chicago is finally here,’ she gushed before adding: ‘The name Chicago… everybody asks me how we came up with that, and Kanye is originally from Chicago. The city’s really connected to his memory of his mother [Donda], and so we went with Chicago.’
