Kim Kardashian went North for her baby's name, and will now hang a left for her new name.
By the way, I only needed three compasses and an atlas to figure that out.
According to E! News, Kardashian will change her name to Kim Kardashian West once she marries baby daddy Kanye West.
At her birthday celebration in Las Vegas last week, Kardashian told E! News she'll start going by "Kim Kardashian West" (not hyphenated -- Kardashian will serve as a middle name).
The website said she answered the question like she was contemplating it for the first time, and just decided, "Yes, I will take his name."
And this lack of previous thought to a basic issue on her part surprises ... who?
This may bode well for West, as Kardashian didn't take her last husband Kris Humphries' name for branding reasons.
"I don't think she should take his name and be Kim Humphries ... She needs to be Kim Kardashian because she's worked so hard to get where she is," mom Kris Jenner told PopEater in 2011.
Kris Jenner -- who took husband Bruce Jenner's name -- must not have worked very hard to get where she was in 2011.
