Earlier this week, Kim and Kanye revealed that they had welcomed a third child into their family, a baby girl named Chicago.

 

Many people rolled their eyes at the name of their newborn girl, but E! News has revealed the meaning behind the baby girl’s name, and it is super sweet.

 

So, why did Kimye decide to name their daughter after the windy city?

 

According to E! News, Kanye was the brains behind the name. The Stronger singer wanted to honour a very special family member in his daughter’s name.

 

 

 

When the rapper was three-years-old he moved to Chicago with his mum, following his parents' divorce. He believed that naming his daughter Chicago was the greatest way to pay tribute to his late mum.

 

Kanye’s mum, Donda passed away following surgical complications in 2007, she was only 58-years-old.

 

The dad-of-three was distraught following his mum’s death, as they shared such a close bond, but his daughter’s name is the perfect way to honour Donda.

 

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 pair both agreed that it was beyond fitting for their baby girl who was born via surrogacy, "It was a mutual decision, which they discussed and agreed upon together."

 

The family are so happy with the name. Apparently, North has already started calling her little sister Chi. How adorable!

 

We love the meaning behind Chicago’s name. Let us know the meaning behind your kiddos name!
