Kim Kardashian's baby's name revealed; why do we notice?

According to the UK Mirror, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's daughter's name is Kaidence Donda West. I suppose one advantage of celebrity is that even if your name looks a little tough to spell it'll be right in the Google drop-down menu: I do pay attention to celebrity baby names, at least for long enough to pause to listen to the soundbite. I think it's because it seems like celebrities have more room to choose: If they're really wealthy, they probably don't care what the name Apple (Gwyneth Paltrow's daughter) or Kal-El (Nicholas Cage's son) is going to look like in the stack of job applications. So it's kind of fun to see what they come up with. I also liked Daily Grace's list of things Kim & Kayne's baby will be really good at (warning: a bit of foul language, mostly bleeped out): When it comes to choosing baby names though (and things our kids will have to do when they grow up), I think it can be one of the hardest things about having a baby! Names precede us in email and on applications, and have power and meaning. Most parents I know are keenly aware that they are making a choice that will follow their child for life. As a Jennifer whose kids have been named Emily, Noah and Liam (all in our top-ten lists; click through to see actual rankings and meanings) it's pretty clear where I fall: I like first names that are pretty common, particularly as my married last name is not a common one. I always figured the bizarre nickname is where people can get creative. And actually, as someone who really hates her prior nickname (Jenny...what can I say, it was the 70s) part of my thought process around my kids' names was to choose names that didn't have common nicknames I hated. What went into your baby name choices? Update from the editor: People.com has revealed the Kimye official baby name is...North West! Thoughts? Like this?
