Kim Kardashian Baby Name: Does Kimye's Baby Have One Of These 'K' Names? (UPDATE)

06/18/2013 12:01 pm ET | Updated Jun 20, 2013

Kim Kardashian gave birth on June 15, but the reality star still hasn't revealed her daughter's name.

Though Kardashian and her family are infamous for sharing intimate details about their lives with the world, the 32-year-old and her boyfriend Kanye West might just be taking a cue from their celebrity friends. Parents Magazine calls keeping baby names a secret a trend in Hollywood. Adele, for example, gave birth in October but still hasn't shared her son's name (though there's been speculation).

Back in March, Kardashian told Extra TV that a "K" name was certainly a possibility, but not a done deal. “I think [a name that starts with K] would be really cute 'cause Kanye and I are both K’s… but half the names on our list aren't K’s," Kardashian said.

UPDATE: 6/20/13 -- According to reports, the couple did not go with a "K" name at all, and has named the baby girl North. Read more here.

At least one notable personality has a strong opinion about which "K" name the couple should choose.

Here are Nameberry’s K ideas for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

Kalista or Kalixto
The Kimye baby is sure to be gorgeous, and so one logical choice would be these female and male versions of the Greek name meaning “beautiful.” While the K versions of the name modernize it Kardashian style, there were three popes named Calixto and a mythological nymph as well as a television actress named Calista.

Kauai, Kashmir, or Kyoto
Kimberly and Kanye are both place-names, and so the couple might want to consider another off-the-map place name, such as the Hawaiian Kauai, the Sanskrit Kashmire, or the Japanese Kyoto.

Kissa or Kito
Kanye is an African name, so it may make sense for the couple to look for another name of that origin. Kissa is a Ugandan girls’ name that means “born after twins,” while Kito is Swahili for “precious jewel.”

Kadence, Kalliope or Kalypso
Music names! Kanye might want to rap while Kim dances along to songs with musical names Kadence, Kalliope, or Kalypso.

Kassius or Kassia
Kanye’s former fashion stylist was a 19-year-old Yale undergrad name Cassius Clay -- the white Cassius Clay -- which might inspire the respelling of this Ancient Roman classic. Cassius means hollow and recently reentered the Top 1000 for the first time since 1895; the similar girls’ name Cassia means cinnamon, which makes it perfect for this spicy couple.

College Humor, however, has a batch of non-"K" suggestions. We're voting for Bluer Ivy.
