Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed their third child via surrogate this Monday and speculation has grown over what the couple will name their baby girl.

Plenty of people had fantastic suggestions for the couple. A lot of people thought “Wild West” was a front runner. I was really pulling for Kim and Kanye to not give their child an actual name because that would really play into their aesthetic of minimalism.

But Kim took to Twitter this morning to announce her baby girl’s name to her 58 million followers.

Her name is Chicago, named after Kanye’s hometown but her nickname will be “Chi,” pronounced “shy,” according to Kim.

Nobody was expecting a name drop this early since the couple has remained relatively private about their kids in the past. It will probably be a while until Kim and Kanye release photos of Chicago – and they certainly won’t be selling it to the press. Kim was quoted earlier this week criticizing its immorality.
