Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were originally thought to have named their baby daughter Kaidence Donda, but now a new contender has emerged: North West.

Well, it's actually not a brand new theory – rumours that the superstar couple were considering the moniker North surfaced earlier this year, prompting more than a few raised eyebrows.

Neither Kim nor Kanye have commented on the baby name, but multiple sources in the US have insisted that Baby Kimye is indeed named North West, and will be nicknamed Nori.

The news might come as a surprise to some as Kim denied Kanye wanted to name the baby North during a US TV interview back in March.

Has he had a change of heart or was she just putting us all off track?!

Kim gave birth to her first child with rapper Kanye on Saturday, 15 June. It's thought the baby came around five weeks early.

Yesterday it was reported that Kim, 32, had left hospital with her daughter and is now staying at a private location away from the spotlight while the new home she bought with Kanye earlier this year is renovated.
