Rumours are swirling over what reality TV star Kim Kardashian and rapper Kanye West will name their first-born.
In an interview on Thursday evening, Kim added yet another possibility to the evergrowing list, explaining her liking towards the unique name Easton West.
She spoke openly to Jay Leno on The Tonight Show on the ups and downs of her pregnancy as well as constant media scrutiny and the many baby names that are on the cards for the couple.

Despite being one of five daughters whose name begins with a K and even though her boyfriend also shares the same first letter in his name, the pair are considering parting from tradition and giving their baby a name that begins with a different letter.
“We have a list,” she said to Jay Leno. “And some of them are “K” names, some of them aren”t.”
Rumours have also surfaced around the internet that Kanye had planned to name their first child North.
But Kim was quick to announce, “[North] is not on our list,” “But you know what name I do like – but it probably won”t be on [our list]… I like Easton – Easton West – I think that”s cute.”
She did not say however whether this suggestion meant the couple were having a baby boy. They have yet to confirm the sex of the baby although according to sources, it is believed they are in fact expecting a girl.
Another moniker that has been mooted for Kim and Kanye”s new arrival is Donda. “If Kanye has a daughter, he wants to name her Donda, after his mother,” a source said. “He’s been saying that for years, and he will really try to get Kim to do that.”
The Keeping up with the Kardashians star went on to admit how pregnany has affected her and why she feels ‘hormonal’ in the revealing interview. She addressed fashion critics and “bullies” who have been relentlessly criticising her weight and wardrobe as well as the reason behind her inclination to wear heels during the nine-month period.
“I think it”s a little bully-ish to call a pregnant woman fat. I mean what do you expect I hope I gain weight. I”m a little heavy.”
I have the rest of my life to be skinny and to lose weight and I”m not really worrying about it. If I have a craving I”ll go for it.
I think it”s kind of mean just all the comments that I see, whether it”s, “She”s wearing heels!”… That makes me feel good and sexy at least being heavier so if that makes me feel good my baby will feel good.”
Kim also denied reports that her manager and mother, Kris Jenner, will orchestrate any kind of deal on behalf of the baby – whom she hopes will not grow up in the media limelight and follow in the footsteps of the rest of the family.
