Because 'Mae' and 'Leslie' had already been taken.

“It’s North West! Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s daughter’s name is confirmed as birth certificate is leaked,” according to the London Daily Mail:

TMZ witnessed a signed birth certificate with the name North West signed by Kim, 32, and Kanye, 36, at Cedars-Sinai hospital.

People magazine confirmed the news with a source close to the Kardashian family.

And a source told UsWeekly that the couple have already given their daughter a nickname — she will be ‘Nori for short’.

They added that the child has no middle name.

The name North had previously been suggested as a possibility for the child, although many Kardashian fans had dismissed the idea as a joke.

Cary Grant and Alfred Hitchcock could not be reached for comment.

Incidentally, since I’ve been meaning to post a link to this all week, this is as good a place as any to post a reminder that when it comes to pop “music,” Time magazine sure can pick ‘em: In August of 2005, a Time magazine cover story dubbed West (Kanye, not Adam or Leslie) “Hip-Hop’s Class Act…Why he’s the smartest man in pop music.” The following month, West would prove he’s neither of those traits, as he dynamited an NBC fundraiser for Hurricane Katrina victims with his racist rant against then-President George W. Bush, despite the fact, as DNC chairwoman Donna Brazile recently noted in CNN, “Bush came through on Katrina.”

Three years later, Time would run a story titled “Lil Wayne: The Best Rapper Alive.” This week, as Breitbart News noted, “Lil’ Wayne Stomps on U.S. Flag, Calls Country ‘Godless America.’”

We should have seen it coming; though perhaps we can predict future pop culture self-immolations. Who else has Time dubbed the best/smartest/classiest in their pop culture genres? Their implosion is likely just a matter of time.
