What’s in a name? Ask Kim Kardashian West.
The reality star became a mom for the third time in January when a surrogate gave birth to her and Kanye West’s little girl.
With two children already possessing the unusual names North and Saint, curiosity was rife over just what the newest member of the Kardashian-West family would be called.
Kim has now revealed to Ellen DeGeneres on her show that the unique “Chicago” was not her first choice.
“We were gonna name her Jo because [of] my grandma Mary Jo, or we were gonna go with Grace, and then it was Chicago. We ended up with Chicago,” she said.
However, those were not the only names in consideration, as Kanye’s late mother’s name, Donda, was also an option.
“He really wanted his mother’s name. I love that name, too. I just wasn’t sure if it’s so much to live up to,” said the 37 year old.
When Ellen pointed out that her other children have one syllable names, Kim admitted “It kind of messes with me, I’m not going to lie. I really like the one-syllable thing.”
Now we know why she’s called “Chi” for short.
