Kim Kardashian West Says It Took Her ‘Two Weeks’ To Come Up With This Child’s Name

Kim Kardashian West is obsessed with her four kids. The KKW Beauty founder somehow finds time to run million-dollar businesses while also being the most hands-on mom she can be.

Some have given Kardashian West heat for her kids’ names, since they’re more unique than most modern American names. But the kids’ names fit their personalities — and Kardashian West recently said it took her almost two weeks to come up with one child’s name.

Kardashian West has four kids with Kanye West

Kardashian West and her husband, Kanye West, have welcomed four kids since they began dating back in 2011. Things first turned romantic between the couple shortly after Kardashian West ended her marriage to Kris Humphries. And in 2013, the couple welcomed their first child, North West. Since then, they’ve had three more kids: Saint, Chicago, and Psalm. Both Chicago and Psalm were born via surrogate after Kardashian West had major complications during her first two pregnancies.

She once said North West’s name was originally a joke

Kardashian West and her youngest sister, Kylie Jenner, recently posted a YouTube video where they spent some time answering fans’ questions. When asked about her kids’ names, Kardashian West revealed that she got the idea for North from Jay Leno, who originally suggested it as a joke. She then said that her husband came up with Saint’s name, and Jenner helped her come up with Psalm. But it turns out Chicago’s name didn’t come so easily to the Wests.

Kardashian West revealed it took her two weeks to name Chicago

When Kardashian West and her sister were chatting, she revealed that it took her nearly two weeks to come up with her third child’s name. Chicago West was born in January 2015 and was ultimately named after her father’s home city.

“Chicago took me like, two weeks,” Kardashian West said. She didn’t specify how or why they came up with it, but Kanye West has always had close ties to his home (the two even considered moving there at one point), so they likely decided to pay tribute to Chicago for his sake.  

The couple might still have more kids

Though Kardashian West and her husband only welcomed their fourth child less than a year ago, many people think they will end up having more. The two have both hinted that they want as many as seven kids; Kanye said he wants seven kids on James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke. Kardashian West comes from a large family, and though it was chaotic when they were growing up, she certainly wouldn’t change it for anything.

Kardashian West once said on the family’s reality show that she isn’t sure they can handle seven kids. The two both have very successful careers, with Kanye being a popular Christian rapper and Kardashian West having countless business ventures to pay attention to. Ultimately, though, it seems likely that they’ll still welcome at least one or two more kids. But right now they seem focused on raising their four little ones.
