Considering that the news of her baby's birth took over the internet in recent days, the announcement of Kim Kardashian's third baby's name, unsurprisingly, sent social media into a tailspin. Running the gamut of hilarious to downright rude, the memes and tweets about Chicago West's name will, for the most part, make you tear up with laughter. The reality star shared the name news via her app by simply posting "Chicago West," and the announcement immediately sent fans running to the internet as the baby's unique name became a huge trending topic on Twitter.
The newborn, who Kardashian and husband Kanye West welcomed into the world via surrogate on Jan. 15, appears to have been named after her superstar father's hometown of Chicago, Illinois, and joins Kimye's brood of interestingly named offspring. After all, she's teaming up in the Kardashian-West household with big sister North and brother Saint. Kimye's new baby girl is said to have been going by the nickname Chi (pronounced "Shy") since she was brought home to meet her adorable sibs.
As has always been the case when it comes to the famous family, the social media reactions have been no holds barred since the Friday afternoon revelation, and the memes are certainly worth checking out.
