Oh Lordy: Kim Kardashian Has Changed Chicago West's Name Because It Doesn't "Flow"
In a video posted on her website, KimKardashianWest.com, the 37-year-old revealed that she never uses her daughter’s official name because - in her opinion - it just doesn’t “flow” correctly.
“Chicago just looks really long to me and doesn’t flow, so I call her Chi," she revealed. “That’s it, she can decide later if she wants to be called Chicago or Chi. But like she’s so girly. When she first came out I was like what do we name her?
“All the other names we had for her, we were going to name her Rei and spell it R-e-i for Kanye’s dad Rei and she doesn’t look like a Rei. We were going to call her Jo for Mary Jo and have it be Jo West. She doesn’t look like a Jo."
Kim continued that while she’s usually against middle names, she’s unofficially given Chi the same one as her: “I’m going to add one", she said. "I haven’t really been into middle names but it’s like I really wanted a name that was short.
"A one syllable name. Noel is my middle name and it’s not a one syllable name but it’s short. Like I love the name Noel. Kanye does not. So, I unofficially instagrammed Chi Noel and I was like I’m doing this because I want her middle name to be Noel."
While Chicago is definitely an iconic first name, there’s no denying that Chi Noel is equally adorable.
