When Kim Kardashian and Kanye West has their first child and named her North West, it seemed obvious what direction things would go in. Obviously, their next three kids would be South West, East West, and eventually West West. But when you expect Kimye to zig, they zag.
Little Saint West was born, adding a much holier dimension to the family. When the couple announced they were expecting a third child via surrogate, it was anyone's guess what was coming.
Now, here she is. Chicago West.
Or Chi, for short.
Kim also RTd this, for the folks not sure how to pronounce Chi, because they're not from Chicago. It's like "shy."
And to everyone who thinks it’s literally pronounced as CHI. No. It’s “Shy”— Leslie ♥ (@rodashian) January 19, 2018
Kim and Kanye can't go for a walk without the Internet weighing in, so you better believe people have thoughts about named a kid after a major metropolitan area:
chicago west sounds like a nbc show that's a ripoff of law & order svu that debuted in the fall of 2007 that came on from 9:30 pm est. that only lasted one season because of bad ratings that returned in 2009 only to be cancelled again the following year— saint laurent mask (@nasmaraj) January 19, 2018
Drake fans talking about KimYe naming their child Chicago West like he won’t be naming one of his kids “Toronto” lol— Zeinab Najm (@zeinabnajm) January 19, 2018
If you don’t like Chicago West as a name then have your own kids and don’t name them Chicago, I fuck with it, I’m more mad Hov didn’t go through with his promise to name his daughter Brooklyn Carter.— Lip Gallagher (@tonestradamus) January 19, 2018
First, there was Chicago Fire. Then, there was Chicago P.D., Lives were saved in Chicago Med. And this fall, get ready for Chicago West.— Jordan Ross (@jordanrosstv) January 19, 2018
It would be funny if Chicago West and North West both grow up to have terrible senses of direction— Charlotte Wilder (@TheWilderThings) January 19, 2018
Rich people name their kids whatever they want because they’ll never have to fill out a job application. Chicago West will be fine.— Billy J. White ➰ (@9021hoee) January 19, 2018
kim and kanye named their new child chicago west and not wild west and that really saddens me— RyansAverageLife (@RyanAbe) January 19, 2018

I understand why people are freaked. Celebrities are generally known for giving their children really ground, average, and unremarkable names. Also for hating drama and attention.
What do Kim and Kanye think they're doing??
