Kim K named her baby Chicago West. If you put a comma in between Chica & go, it becomes “Chica, go West”. West of LA is the Pacific Ocean. Ocean rhymes with potion. Potion has 6 letters. “Lip kit” also has 6 letters. Kylie sells lip kits. Kim is hinting that Kylie is pregnant.

I’m really confused as to why Kim & Kanye named her “Chicago West” when Kanye is from the South Side of Chicago ?

There is no thematic cohesion in the West-Kardashian naming system. North, Saint and Chicago is like Three, Stephanie and Toaster (those are my baby names don't steal them).

Kim and Kanye named their baby Chicago West. She's 7 lbs, 6 oz and -14° with wind chill.

What is the abbreviation for Saint?

We must applaud Kanye and Kim for their creativity because we genuinely didn't see this one coming.
