Speculation rife over Kardashian baby name

Published: 7:18AM Wednesday June 19, 2013 Source: BANG Showbiz

A loose-lipped nurse has reportedly revealed the name of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's newborn daughter.

The baby was born in Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Sunday, five weeks earlier than expected.

The 32-year-old reality TV star and her rapper boyfriend have yet to reveal their daughter's name, amid rumours that they are having difficulty deciding what to call her.

However, gossip website MediaTakeOut.com reports that a Cedars-Sinai nurse has told them that the baby is to be called Kaidence Donda West.

The name would be in keeping with the Kardashian family tradition of giving daughters names beginning with the letter 'K'.

Middle name Donda is said to be a tribute to Kanye's late mother, an English professor who died from complications of cosmetic surgery in 2007.

Other rumours suggest that Kim and Kanye may call the baby Kai Georgia Donda West or even North West.

According to US InTouch magazine, "North is at the top of the list of names".

A friend of the pair told the gossip magazine: "They're not totally sure about it. Kanye loves it, Kim is okay with it."

Kim's baby's name has also become the subject of online bets.

Irish bookmaker Paddy Power has a slew of potential "K" names for infant, including Kay (20/1), Kim (8/1) and Kris (20/1).

Kimye, which is the couple's nickname, has odds of 25/1. Katherine (50/1) and non-K names like Mia (33/1) and Lara (33/1) were also included.

Baby is 'beyond beautiful'

Meanwhile, Kim's close friends have gushed about the little girl.

Her childhood friend, Brittny Gastineau told People.com: "The baby is beyond beautiful. Everything we expected."

The Tres Glam jewellery designer, 29, has already visited Kim at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center twice.

She said: "I'm so happy for the couple. I'm so excited for my best friend to have this amazing gift and for us to continue this journey together. I'm finally an auntie!! Yay."

While the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star's other good friend, Jonathan Cheban, insists that despite keeping an uncharacteristically low profile, Kim is really enjoying motherhood.

He said: "Kim is doing amazing and couldn't be happier."

Kim's friend Larsa Pippen previously said: "She's [Kim] doing really great. She's feeling really good and excited and the baby is so freaking cute. She's so cute.

"I didn't think she would have the baby so soon. I thought I'd enjoy a little bit more with her but we've been hanging out in the hospital, so it's all good."
