Boxing champ Laila Ali calls North West a stupid name

Kim and Kanye won't like this, but Mohammed Ali's daughter says she don't cur! Laila isn't a fan of the crazy baby name trend and calls out Kanye West for naming his daughter North...

Laila tells Hip Hollywood,
"I don't like crazy names. I think it doesn't make any sense. And you have to think about the child as they get older and what they have to deal with. A lot of people do things because it’s a fad and they want to get some attention but this is your child…if it’s crazy but cool and nice and it makes sense, that’s one thing, but North and South and Leaf and Water Drop? Come on now, I don’t care who you are that’s just stupid, period.
The see video after the cut...

Kanye and Kim have never confirmed the baby's name as North West. The name is as fake as the fake baby pictures they sent out to sniff out their fake friends.

True that.
But wait a minute,Laila,wasn't your father's name Casius Clay before he got converted to Islam and renamed himself Mohammed Ali?who names their son Casius and Clay,eh?
In the end,its Kanye's child he can name her whatever he likes,that's his prerogative.

I don't like crazy names too. When I heard the name, I just pass it as one of those conspiracy names. Cos I don't see any reason why one would name a child after a cardinal point.

★★PRINCE CHARMING™★★ said...

Well said, a name is a representation of a person, you owe your kid the honour of giving him/her a name worthy of good meaning, you can't just play around your kids name just for the fun of it like you are naming a dog or something.

Oh! Shatap! One man's meat is anothers' poison! Its nobody business when it comes to naming a child. Leave kim n kanye alone! There are other names like that in hollywood e.g rainbow, zuma, suri etc. If pple can bear january, may, april, sunday ,monday, etc... Why can't pple bear north! I personally don't gbadun the name, but its their choice. It is isn't a stupid name. Most of the names pple bear have silly meanings and they don't know it. Isn't the name "kanye" weird too? (from an african origin). "Obama" sounds weird too! But each parent names their kids with love. So this north "nori" west name matter don do! #endoff!
