No one loves their hometown like Kanye loves his hometown. In an ode to his first love, Kim Kardashian-West and Kanye West have named their third child after the city of Chicago. Kim announced the news Friday afternoon (Jan. 19) on her website with a baby pink page that simply read Chicago West.
Much like any celebrity baby name, the Internet had a lot of opinions on the couple’s eccentric choice, including an endorsement from younger sister Khloe Kardashian. See some of the most memorable reactions below.

It would be funny if Chicago West and North West both grow up to have terrible senses of direction

Okay but if you put them all together, “North St. Chicago” sounds like the name of a hard-boiled detective who doesn’t solve crimes by the book
