Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed a baby boy into the world on 5 December and many people are already desperate to know what their new son is called. What with their first baby being called North, it seemed logical to the masses that their second would also be named after a cardinal point.

Since the reality star and musician announced the news on their website and Twitter accounts, the social media platform has been full of comments with people joking about how the baby will follow in his sister's footsteps and have a name inspired by the face of a compass! However, we don't really think that West would actually call their child South...

But what will their call their new son? IBTimesUK offers up some suggestions before the pair make their inevitable official announcement.

Kanye II

Everyone knows that West isn't shy about claiming himself a "god" or suggesting he is some kind of legendary musical genius, and what better way to keep your legacy going than by calling your child by your own name?

When the reasons were revealed behind Kardashian and West calling their first daughter North, the most notable one was that the couple believes their baby to "be a star" so thought it a suitable name. However, while the North Star is certainly one of the most well-known stars in the galaxy, there are others that could be appropriate names for their son too.

Sirius is said to be the brightest star in the night sky and its name comes from the Ancient Greek word Σείριος meaning "glowing" – an adjective we think the ambitious and stylish pair will appreciate for their child.

Easton

Just weeks before she gave birth to the couple's first child in 2013, Kardashian announced in an interview with Jay Leno that she would like to name the baby Easton West. Explaining that they "have a list" but that her suggestion "probably won't be on it", Kardashian said that she thought the name was "cute" – will her favoured name make it on to the list the second time around?

Omari

West's middle name could be a fitting title for a boy in particular. Both the English and African meaning behind the name is "God the highest", so this would suit the couple considering that they named their first born after a star.

Robert

Kardashian's late father Robert Kardashian died in 2003, when she was just 23. Her younger brother is named after their father and many are contemplating that the couple might name their new baby son after him too.
