Despite rumors that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West would stick with the 'K' theme and name their new daughter Kaidence or Klementine, they've gone in a different direction.

North, to be exact.

TMZ is reporting that the name on the birth certificate is "North West."

People magazine confirmed the news with a source close to the Kardashian family.

And a source told UsWeekly that the couple have already given their daughter a nickname — "Nori," for short.

Reality star Kardashian, 32, gave birth to North West on June 15 in the $3,320-a-night maternity suite at the Cedars Sinai hospital in Los Angeles.
