LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Shortly after People magazine revealed that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West named their daughter North West, the newborn became a social media sensation . . . but not in a good way.
North West: "Mom, Dad, tell me again the story of how you named me."
Kim & Kanye: "Well we are both media whores and saw a chance to trend"—

“North West” and “Kim and Kanye” were trending on Twitter immediately following the news with users taking jabs at the six-day old baby.
So I'm assuming that North West won't be a One Direction fan?—

So apparently Kim and Kanye named their kid "North West" ….. Glad to see that whole parenting thing is off to a good start.—

Kim and Kanye name their daughter North West. And that's pretty much all the guidance she can expect.—

Fellow reality television star Snooki, who is a mother herself, took to Twitter with a positive tone over North’s name.

North is the first child for both Kardashian and West, who have been together since the spring of 2012.
The parents have not commented on their daughter’s birth or naming since she was born.
