Twitter Has Some Harsh Reactions To Kim Kardashian And Kanye West’s New Baby Name

Yeezus Christ.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are keeping up their tradition of choosing unique names for their kids.

Kardashian announced Friday on her website and app that she and West decided to name their third child Chicago West. Khloe Kardashian tweeted that the baby girl will be called Chi (pronounced “shy”).

People have a LOT of thoughts on the name. Some Twitter users said they thought “Chicago West” sounded a lot like a new TV series:

chicago west sounds like a nbc show that's a ripoff of law & order svu that debuted in the fall of 2007 that came on from 9:30 pm est. that only lasted one season because of bad ratings that returned in 2009 only to be cancelled again the following year

Others defended the moniker “Chicago,” saying it wasn’t THAT absurd:

You know there are white people making fun of the name Chicago West who are gonna name their daughter Brooklyn.

*white parent voice* I can't believe Kim and Kanye named their baby girl Chicago West, that's ridiculous! Oh no, it's almost 4:30, I need to pick up my kids Lakynn and Nayvie.

A few users brought Jay Z into the picture:

If you don’t like Chicago West as a name then have your own kids and don’t name them Chicago, I fuck with it, I’m more mad Hov didn’t go through with his promise to name his daughter Brooklyn Carter.
