The story behind Kim Kardashian's baby name

Listen to Kanye West on iHeartRadio

(Yahoo!) - North West … how did Baby Kimye get that name?

On Thursday night, omg! confirmed that was indeed the name of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's daughter, whom the new parents are calling "Nori" for short. So … do you notice anything about that nickname?

Well, if you combine Kim Noel Kardashian andKanye Omari West's middle names, you get "Nori."

But let's back up.

Rumors first circulated in March that Kim andKanye were considering naming their child North.

“Kanye’s ego is something else, so he’s quite serious about the title," a source told The Sun at the time. “He also has a sense of humor though and knows how his self-indulgence is seen by the general public. It’s half tongue-in-cheek, half what Kanye probably feels is true.”

However, one week later, Kardashian, 32, denied that North was a possibility during an appearance on "The Tonight Show."

"That is not true," the reality star told Jay Leno. "That is not one of the names on our list … We have a list and some of them are 'K' names and some of them aren't."

The "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star didn't stop with her denial there. Overcompensating, perhaps?

"You know what name I do like but it probably won't be on [our list] ... I like Easton. Easton West. I think that's cute," she said during her appearance, drawing laughter from the audience.

Clearly, Kardashian and West, 35, are getting the last laugh. Who knew she could actually keep a secret from the media?!
