North West’s list of names for her puppy is just what you’d expect from a 4-year-old.

There’s only one way to guarantee your family pet a truly original name: ask a small child to make the decision.

From completely made up words to inanimate objects, kids’ naming capabilities tend to stretch far beyond ‘Fido’ or ‘Whiskers’.


Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s daughter North West is no exception.

The celebrity progeny was given an extremely floofy Pomeranian puppy for her fourth birthday recently, and seems to be having a little trouble settling on a name.

Kim appealed to her 101 million Instagram followers for name suggestions last weekend, but to no avail.

Now it seems North has drawn up a shortlist, which her mum shared on Twitter earlier today.

And, well, they're exactly the kind of hilariously weird names you'd expect a four-year-old to dream up.


OK, so Goldie is pretty classic, and Cutie Pie isn't totally unheard of.

But Peachy Pop? (Not to be confused with Passion Pop, mind.)

...BABY JESUS? This dog is bound for greatness.

Listen: Can you really 'shotgun' a baby name? What about a pet name? Discuss. (Post continues.)

A follow-up tweet from Kim suggests North also employed the ol' 'look around you and choose the first thing you see' approach to the name-gathering process:

Sushi. Yep, Sushi.

North using food as inspiration for her puppy's name isn't completely out of left field, given her cousin Penelope - who received the sister of North's puppy for her birthday - settled on the slightly more conventional Honey.

Sister puppies for North & P! Penelope named hers honey. What should we name ours?

That said, when Kim asked her Instagram followers for ideas, a lot of them were inspired by food too - the suggestions included Oats, Sugar, Pancakes, Espresso and Cinnamon.

Mmm, delicious.

Anyway, if you care to offer North a little help in her puppy-naming quest, you can vote on your preferred name here:

What's the most imaginative pet name you've ever heard? Or baby name, for that matter?
