The entire world was completely shocked back in June 2013 when Kim Kardashian and Kanye West first announce the name of their baby girl - North West!  Love it or hate it, we simply don't question it anymore.

In her British GQ interview, the Woman of the Year finally revealed to the mag why she and Kanye chose the name for their baby. But as it turns out, Pharrell Williams and Anna Wintour (Vogue editor-in-chief) had everything to do with that navigational name!

"I remember this is actually where we decided, finally, on North as a name for our baby girl," Kardashian told GQ at the Mercer Hotel in New York City.

"It was a rumor in the press and we'd never really considered it seriously, at all, but Kanye and I were having lunch right over there at that table about a year ago and Pharrell [Williams] came over to us and said 'Oh, my God, are you guys really going to call your daughter North? That is the best name.' I said 'No we're not, that's just a rumor,'" Kardashian said.

"Then a little while later Anna Wintour came over and asked the same thing. She told us 'North is a genius name.' Kanye and I looked at one another and just laughed. I guess at that point it sort of stuck," she said.

So, there you have it, people. Now let's wait for the rumors to roll in about how Wintour got to name North in exchange for KimYe's Vogue cover.

Was that it?
