CHARLES GRAHAM - A name to send a child in the wrong direction

Share this article

IT’S interesting to see that Kayne West and Kim Kardashian are keeping up that bizarre and inexplicable tradition largely confined to celebrities of giving their children outlandish names.

Their daughter, they proudly let it be known the other day, is to be baptised North.

Yes, North West.

A curious choice indeed. Perhaps the parents are big fans of Ordnance Survey maps or maybe they have got some relatives in Wigan they are particularly fond of.

It’s right up there with Fifi Trixibelle, Satchel and Moonunit.

One tweeter I saw this weekend rather naughtily quipped “why couldn’t the Wests pick a normal name, like Fred or Rose?!”

Anyway, once again celebrities who will do anything to get their mugs in the paper then complain about their privacy invasion have managed to inflict a wacky/joke moniker on their offspring which will make them stick out like a sore thumb.

Poor kid.
