Kim Kardashian has a baby daughter, and her name has been revealed. Let the hollow analysis begin!
I’d be shirking my duties if I didn’t try to make some sort of hay out of the neonate North West. And that’s in fact the name of the debut baby born unto Kardashian and Kanye West: North.
So what does it all mean, other than some company is about to get way rich selling Kardashian Kompasses?
But the name sure does say a lot about Kim and Kanye. Specifically: They are not just narcissists. They just might be extreme narcissists.
I reached out to Jean Twenge, of San Diego State University’s department of psychology. Is it just me, I asked the author of “The Narcissism Epidemic,” or does North West sound like the name of a famous performer?
And if so, what does that say about the parents?
“I agree that North West sounds like a performer,” she replied. “I think they are trying to signal that the baby is already famous and will be famous in her own right later.
“Choosing a name this unique signals a more extreme desire to stand out and get attention, traits typical of people high in narcissism.”
