It sounds like the child of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will have a strong sense of direction.

TMZ reports that the birth certificate from Cedars-Sinai says they've named their baby girl North. And she's taking her dad's last name, making her a West. So that's right: their baby will be named North West.

We're kind of bummed to hear that the fetus formerly known as Kimye will not have a name that begins with a "K." But what we will lose in alliteration, we will surely make up for in puns.

Welcome to the world, Baby North.
