Kim Kardashian is super confused about how Chicago ended up with her name
It's a well known fact that if there is one thing that the Kardashian family like doing (other than being the center of attention), it's giving their children bizarre names. Whether it's the fact that all of Kris Jenner's daughters begin with K (Kim, Kylie, Kendall, Khloe, Kourtney); or the names that they have gone on to give their children, the Kardashian sisters like peculiar names.
Take, for instance, the Kardashian West family. Kim and Kanye (Kimye) have decided to pick some bamboozling names for their sprogs. So far, we've had North, Saint and Chicago. However, it was the latter who really sent tongues wagging.
Little baby Chicago arrived in January this year, unaware that she will live her life in front of the world's cameras. However, while the name is arguably more understandable than the other kid's - given that Kanye is from Chicago - it bucked the trend for Kim Kardashian. Before the birth of the girl, Kim had appeared on Ellen DeGeneres to say: "I do like different names, but like short, easy-to-spell, one-syllable — that’s kind of my vibe."
So, while North and Saint ticked the box, Chicago came as a surprise. But, even more shockingly, Kim has now revealed that she didn't want to give Chicago the unique name.
The 37-year-old, who had Chicago via a surrogate, said that she wanted to name her youngest daughter after her grandmother. Once again speaking to Ellen, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star said: "We were gonna name her Jo because my grandma Mary Jo or we were gonna go with Grace and then it was Chicago."
Ellen then said: "But you told me you wanted a one syllable. When I was pitching names you said you wanted one syllable."
Kim replied: "And I did. So...Chicago is not one syllable.
"Yeah, it kind of messes with me, I'm not gonna lie. I really like the one syllable thing."
Ellen then asked: "Because Kanye wanted Chicago? Because he's from there?"
Kim replied: "I don't even know...obviously because he's from Chicago but that is a place that made him."
The beauty mogul also dished out the juice when it came to the arrival of Chicago. According to Kim, Kanye was busy playing Connect 4 next the delivery room as Chicago was being born.
Kim didn't just talk about her family, she also opened up about the allegations of Tristan Thompson cheating on Khloe Kardashian, with Kim describing the situaition as "so f**ked up."
Kim said: "Poor Khloe. Like, I don't even know how to describe it besides it's just so f**ked up.
"We really were rooting for Khloe and we still are.
"You know she's so strong and she's doing the best that that she can. It's a really sad situation all over."
So Chicago has to now live the fact that her mother doesn't really like her name, the poor thing.
