The TV reality star opened up about the naming dilema in the latest episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians, aired in the US on Sunday.
Pregnant and on holiday with her family in Santorini at the time, Kim said: "If we name our kid with a K name, which is kinda what we want because Kanye and I are both K names, then they will call us the 'KKK'", aluding to the extremist American group Ku Klux Klan.
"That is a little crazy though," commented Kim's step-brother Brody Jenner on the idea that comparisons would be made between Kim and Kanye West's baby and the white supremist group.
"I am feeling North, North West," he added.
"Me too. It is pretty and cool and not just like Tomboyish, it is just good," chipped in sister Kourtney as the Kardashians sailed on a luxury yacht in rays of the Grecian sun.
Pregnant Kim, who has now had her baby girl and named her North West, went on to say what a dedicated dad Kanye would be.
"I think Kanye will be really good. He says 'There is nothing I love more in this world than you and me, myself, so imagine a combination of the two'," she said.
The new mum, who has been keeping a low profile since the birth of her baby daughter, declared love once again on Twitter on Sunday, after five days of no cyber social activity.
"I love you!!!" posted the 32-year-old, alongside a snap of a bunch of beautiful fuscia-coloured roses. We think they may just have been a gift from adoring new dad Kanye.
