Kim Kardashian and Kanye West delighted the Internet by coming up with the most eccentric name yet for a celebrity offspring. Sorry, Apple, but when it’s Kim and Kanye’s creativity at work, devising wild baby names goes beyond what’s been done before. And although Twitter had been pleading for Easton West, Kim and Kanye decided to go with a directionless but blessed choice.
Determined to match the quirky charm of their daughter North West, Kim and Kanye opted for Saint for their baby boy, reported E! News.

To come up with the name, an insider revealed to E! News that the challenges and risks Kim faced during her pregnancy influenced their final decision, and that Kardashian and Kanye decoded the name as linking it to the blessing that resulted from her scary birth.
“[Saint was picked since it’s akin to saying he is] a blessing… because she had such a difficult pregnancy,” explained the insider to E! News.
Twitter Enjoys Mocking Kim & Kanye For Naming Baby Saint
But social media just couldn’t resist turning the name of Kim and Kanye’s new baby into a chance to play games. As the Inquistr reported, Twitter trended with Easton West as the desired name, and perhaps in retaliation, the Twitterverse had more than a few comments about the name Saint. A sampling follows.

Kim Kardashian’s Difficult Pregnancy
How difficult was Kardashian’s pregnancy and labor? For the second time, Kim experienced birth problems with a condition known as placenta accreta, reported People.
Though Saint is healthy, his 35-year-old mom suffered what’s being described as a “tough” birth because of the placenta problems, a source told People.
Kardashian described the procedure as painful and previously noted she was aware she was at high risk of repeating placenta accreta.
“They think I’ll have placenta accreta again, so if the placenta grows a little bit deeper than it did last time, then they are prepared to have my uterus removed, which is a little scary for me,” Kim said prior to the birth of her baby on Saturday.
Little Saint weighs eight pounds, one ounce.
North West Gets Ready To Play Big Sister
Sometimes known as Nori, North West at 2-years-old has already become more famous than the average celebrity. And there’s plenty of proof that she’ll be able to guide her baby brother Saint in her stylish shoes with a look back at her success story already, pointed out E! Online.
Saint will wear designer attire just like his big sister and the rest of the Kardashian and Jenner clan. North’s favorites range from Minnie Mouse costumes to Balmain blazers, meaning that her little brother will have lots of interesting options.
Learning to pretend that the paparazzi aren’t always watching is an art that some adult celebs haven’t mastered. But North grew up accustomed to having her photo taken, and she can reassure her baby brother that it’s just part of the fame game.
Life In Keeping Up With The Kardashians Land
There are aunts, uncles, and cousins everywhere, plus more Kardashian cameras to film your life. When you come from the Kardashian family, relatives are always present. So North will help introduce Saint to the intricacies of playing nice the Jenner and Kardashian way.
Luxury Life (Yawn)
Flying on a jet plane, crying in the front row of Fashion Week, and sauntering down the red carpet are just everyday activities in the life of North West. So if the second child of Kim and Kanye gets confused (who can blame him?) by all the action, his big sister will be there to teach him how it’s done in a way that gets Saint his very own headlines and blessings from the media.
Watch The Grown-Ups
Whether it’s Grandma Kris Jenner or auntie Kourtney Kardashian, North has learned that having a big family means always having someone to turn to and use as a role model as well. Now she can teach Saint what it’s all about with a little help from all those famous relatives.
