Rumors started circulating this week that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have come up with a name that's, hmmm, a bit unusual. Some think the Kardashian baby name is clever. Others say the name is crazy. And a third group is yet to decide.

The name...   North West (Kanye's last name).

The source of the name? Baby-daddy Kanye West, of course!

While the name North West may sound coy, sources told The Sun, "Kanye's ego is something else, so he's quite serious about the title."

"He also has a sense of humor though and knows how his self-indulgence is seen by the general public. It's half tongue-in-cheek, half what [West] probably feels is true," the source added.

In fact, West was so serious about the baby name that he reportedly tested it out on friends during Paris Fashion Week.

Many believed that West would choose a name to pay homage to his late mother, Donda, yet North appears to be the front-runner.

If West does manage to convince Kardashian that North West is a suitable name for their creation, we can bet Kris Jenner will not be pleased.

Kardashian is often thought to be the closest to her mom and manager, and we're sure Kris would not approve of the diversion from the traditional 'K' names that are central to the family's branding.

Kardashian's siblings include Khloe, Kourtney, Kendall and Kylie, and lines such as the Kardashian Kollection incorporate the letter K as a way to represent the familial endeavors.

The baby, who is due in July, has been garnering plenty of attention. Last week Kardashian dished to reporters that her pregnancy has been more difficult than expected, adding that sister Kourtney made it look far easier than it has proven to be.

The star said, "I've been chilling out. I took a week off, just to rest and it was amazing."

Yet, Kardashian is already back to work. The star shared multiple photos, yesterday, featuring colored contacts and matching threads. Kardashian tweeted, "Fun photo shoot today! Loving these colored contacts! Can't wait for you guys to see what this is for."

The Kardashian Clan enjoys a family dinner. How will Kris Jenner feel when the newest addition to the family doesn't share a 'K' name?
