Kim Kardashian reveals Chicago’s middle name – and the sweet reason behind it

Chicago’sKim Kardashian welcomed her third child, Chicago, on January 15, 2018, via surrogate and she’s become a regular fixture on our social media feeds ever since. And while the Kardashians are famed for choosing *unusual* monikers, Kim has never revealed Chicago’s middle name – until now.

In an adorable post on her Instagram page, she confirmed that Chicago’s middle name is Noel. Kim’s birth name is Kimberly Noel Kardashian, but she had her name legally changed when she married Kanye. The addition wasn’t on Chi’s birth certificate, so it may have been a recent choice.

💕 Chi 💕 Noel 💕

North and Saint don’t have middle names, but there’s nothing wrong with switching it up, right Kimmy?

It wasn’t long ago that we learned the other name choice she had in mind – she very nearly chose a somewhat traditional name.

Speaking on the Ellen DeGeneres show, the 37-year-old explained that Chicago’s name ‘kind of messes’ with her – because it isn’t one syllable like daughter, North, and son, Saint.

She then went on to reveal that she and Kanye very nearly named Chicago after Kim’s grandmother, Mary-Jo Shannon. Say what?!

Explaining further, Kim revealed: ‘We were gonna name her Jo because my grandma Mary Jo or we were gonna go with Grace and then it was Chicago.’

Kim also gave a little insight into why the couple plumped for the name Chicago, with Kim adding: “I don’t even know…obviously because he’s from Chicago but that is a place that made him.”
