Kim Kardashian baby name has been confirmed by her mom, Kris Jenner. North West is indeed the name of the newest addition to the Kardashian family. While Hollywood has been cracking jokes about the unusual name, Jenner defended the choice for its deep meaning while on "The View."

"I mean it's funny, but do you want your child named North West?" Barbara Walters said about the baby of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. 

"I love the name North. I'm pro-North, absolutely," Kris Jenner replied. 

"The way she explained it to me was North means 'highest power,' and she says that North is [Kim and Kanye's] highest point together," Jenner explained. "And I thought that was really sweet."

Jenner added: "You don't walk around calling somebody, 'Hi, North West.' You know, it's just North." 

While reports have suggested North would go by the nickname "Nori," Jenner says she does not know what Kimye has decided. 

"And they can go, you know, if they have other children, South West, East West. ... Whatever they want, it's OK with us. They're an adorable couple," Walters joked. 

Kris Jenner is also preparing to host her own talk show entitled "Kris." The momager will be beginning a six-week trial run of the show on July 15.

"So many women give up in life when they get a little bit older," she said according to The Hollywood Reporter. "I want to be a positive influence. I want to come from a really good place. Some people are just lost, and maybe I can be an inspiration."

"Kris" will air on five or more Fox stations beginning next month, The Hollywood Reports reports.
