Kanye and Kim's Son's Name Is Far From Predictable

The initials S.W. still apply, though.

Published December 7, 2015

The heir to the West throne finally has a name. Kim Kardashian-West announced on her website that she and her husband Kanye West chose to go with the name Saint West for their newborn son.

After posting it to her official website, the reality star followed up with a tweet to share the news with her millions of followers:


Saint was born on December 5 at a healthy eight pounds, one ounce. The bouncing baby boy was the result of a difficult pregnancy and was breech just a few days before he was delivered.

There is a rumor that the couple chose to also give baby Yeezus the middle name Robert in honor of Kim's late father, but this news hasn't been confirmed yet.

While many of the couple's fans were hoping for the predictable yet clever "South" — his big sister's name is North, after all — they didn't get their wish. Well, not completely at least. He does have the initials S.W., though.

Welcome to the world, Saint!
