Numerous people speculated that Kim and Kanye would stick with navigational theme after naming their daughter North.

This isn’t the first time Kim and Kanye have been at the center of hilarious memes on social media. When they announced the name of their first child North West, people reacted much in the same manner that they are reacting to the announcement of Saint West’s birth. When Kim posed for Paper Magazine, the photos became fodder for countless memes — many of which went viral. Many of those memes aren’t safe for work, but that didn’t stop the masses from sharing them widely.
Clearly, Kim and Kanye aren’t the only celebrities to be the focus of memes whenever something big happens in their lives. Nonetheless, their choices of baby names has long been a topic of discussion, ridicule and even admiration for some people. That could be partly in due to the overall obsession with both Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, who are notoriously hated and loved at the same time. It should also be noted that while people are sharing memes poking fun at Saint West’s names, a world of celebrities have taken to social media to congratulate the couple on the birth of their son.
