Thursday night, the name of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's baby was revealed. North, once before just a direction on a compass, now graces the newborn. To boot, her last name is West, releasing an onslaught of jokes. 

I find unusual names intriguing, but North fell flat with me. The fact that it was a noun did not bother me; it was something else. Noun names always sound odd when they are first introduced. Take Brooke and Willow for example. I thought they were far-fetched when I heard them, monikers only given by nature freaks. As time went on, however, I accepted them for what they were: phonetically pleasing names that evoked pleasant images.
