Although she did reveal her three gold rules when it comes to picking names, Kim thinks you should keep baby names "short, easy to spell and one syllable".

On Friday, Kim Kardashian sent shockwaves throughout the media world when she revealed the name of her 3rd child Chicago, named after her husband, Kanye West's, hometown city in IL. Chicago was born Monday, weighing in at 7 pounds, 6 ounces.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed their baby girl on January 16, 2018.

Kardashian revealed the name, without explanation, in a simple update to the birth announcement she made earlier this week.

On Tuesday, Kim announced that her gestational carrier has already given birth.

What have Kim and Kanye named their third child?

Kim confirmed she was pregnant on her show Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

"And to everyone who thinks it's literally pronounced as CHI. No".

The name is believed to be a nod to Kanye's hometown and a tribute to his late mother Donda, who died unexpectedly after complications following a plastic surgery procedure.
