Kim Kardashian explains name North West

Kim Kardashian explains why she broke family tradition with her daughter's name, North West.

Kim Kardashian has revealed that she chose not to continue her family's "K" tradition for her baby's name for fear the family would be labelled the "KKK."

The TV reality star opened up about the naming dilemma in the latest episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians, which aired Sunday.

Pregnant and on holiday with her family in Santorini at the time, Kim said, "If we name our kid with a K name, which is kinda what we want because Kanye and I are both K names, then they will call us the 'KKK,'" alluding to the extremist American group Ku Klux Klan.

"That is a little crazy, though," commented Kim's step-brother Brody Jenner on the idea that comparisons would be made between Kim and Kanye West's baby and the white supremacist group.

"I am feeling North, North West," he added.

"Me too. It is pretty and cool and not just like Tomboyish — it is just good," chipped in sister Kourtneyas the Kardashians sailed on a luxury yacht in rays of the Grecian sun.

Pregnant Kim, who has now had her baby girl and named her North West, went on to say what a dedicated dad Kanye would be.

"I think Kanye will be really good. He says, 'There is nothing I love more in this world than you and me, myself, so imagine a combination of the two,'" she said.

The new mom, who has been keeping a low profile since the birth of her baby daughter, declared love once again on Twitter on Sunday, after five days of no cyber social activity.

"I love you!!!" posted the 32-year-old, alongside a snap of a bunch of beautiful fuscia-coloured roses (above). We think they may just have been a gift from adoring new dad Kanye.
