Kim Kardashian: Fear Of Ku Klux Klan ‘KKK’ Moniker Made Reality Star Name Baby North West

[[nid:1278529]]

The Kardashian-Jenner family is infamous for giving their children “K” monikers, so when Kim Kardashian gave birth to her baby with rapper Kanye West last month, the world was shocked to learn that the child’s name didn’t follow the trend.

In an upcoming episode of E!’s “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” taped before the baby's birth in June, the 32-year-old expectant mom tells her family that a “K” name is not in the cards, reported Us Weekly. “Our kid, if it's a K [name], then they'll call us the KKK,” says Kardashian, revealing her concerns over her young family possibly being compared to the white supremacist group the Ku Klux Klan.

Despite a whole world of other choices, family members prompt her to use the name North West, which she ended up choosing. “I’m feeling North, North West,” says Kardashian’s stepbrother and former star of MTV’s “The Hills,” Brody Jenner. Kim’s 34-year-old sister Kourtney agrees, saying, “It’s pretty and cool and it’s not just, like, tomboyish.”

The series, which features intimate details regarding the longtime reality star’s pregnancy, utilized the show’s season eight premiere in May to confirm the sex of the baby. The program, which showed Kardashian's ultrasound alongside her mother and manager, Kris Jenner, revealed that the first-time mom was having a girl.

Kardashian gave birth to baby North five weeks prematurely on June 15 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in West Hollywood, Calif., with West, her boyfriend of one year, by her side. Before the couple announced the child’s name, it was widely rumored the child would be called either Krist, Kaidence or Kai. “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” airs Sunday’s on E! at 9 p.m. EST.
