Listen to Kanye West on iHeartRadio

(TMZ) - Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were not inspired by a compass when they named their kid North. Fact is, the name's more inspirational than directional.

Sources close to K & K tell TMZ, they chose the name North because they see it as a metaphor for "up", telling friends, "What's North of North? Nothing."  Translation ... nothing better.

TMZ reports that the duo believes baby North is their highest point together as a couple, the pinnacle of the relationship, and they consider her their "North Star." 

Kinda sweet. Almost makes ya feel bad for mocking it, right?
