Reactions to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West naming their baby "North West" have been predictably mixed, but one big celebrity has given the moniker his stamp of approval: Kanye's buddy Jay-Z.

Jay-Z hosted a silent auction at his 40/40 Club on Monday to benefit New York Yankee Robinson Cano's RC24 Foundation, which supports youth development and community healthcare in New York and the Dominican Republic. When guests asked the star how he felt about Kimye's baby name, he simply flashed a thumbs-up sign, Life & Style reports.

He's also one of the lucky few to have seen pictures of the new baby, smiling and giving a slight nod when someone else asked him about it. So North West has Jay-Z's stamp of approval!

But then again, Jay-Z named his daughter Blue Ivy, so he's no stranger to unusual baby names.
