Kim Kardashian West has chosen unique names for all of her children. The mum’s choices- Saint, North and Chicago- have always divided the public and it looks like she’s unsure about the name she chose for her youngest child Chicago.


The mum admitted she isn’t too fond of her youngest daughter’s name. She said she prefers to call her little girl Chi: “Chicago just looks really long to me and doesn’t flow, so I call her Chi. That’s it, she can decide later if she wants to be called Chicago or Chi.”


The mum-of-three revealed that choosing a name for her third child was quite a tricky process, sharing that herself and husband Kanye West often argued about their baby name ideas.



When her daughter was born the businesswoman said they had no idea what to call her. “It was the hardest decision ever and I could not think of a name.”


The meaning behind Chicago’s name is actually quite sentimental, with the mum previously revealing it was a tribute to husband Kanye’s late mum and his hometown.



At the time of Chicago’s arrival, a source said the parents knew that it was the right name straight away, “Kanye came up with the name and Kim loved it the significance of the name.”

The parents initially agreed that it was the right choice for their daughter: "It was a mutual decision, which they discussed and agreed upon together."


However, it looks like Kim has had a change of heart. We still think Chi is an adorable alternative, plus her big sister North adores the nickname too.
