LONDON, March 21 (UPI) --
U.S. hip-hop star Kanye West
is considering North as a name to give the baby he is expecting with reality TV star Kim Kardashian
, The Sun reported.
The couple is expecting their first child in July. The baby's gender has not been disclosed.
West has been telling friends he likes the way North sounds with his surname and he has ranked it high on his list of possible baby names, The Sun said.
The name would be a surprise move since Kardashian's mom's name is Kris and she has given all her children names that begin with K.
