After months of anticipation and rumors, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have become parents for the second time. The celebrity power couple welcomed their son on Saturday, amid a flurry of media attention. The newborn joins older sister North West, who turned two this June.
"Kim Kardashian West and her husband, Kanye West, welcomed the arrival of their son this morning," her official website announced.
"Mother and son are doing well."
Additional reports have been surprisingly sparse, leaving the world to wonder: what are they going to name their first son? Reports have hinted that the couple has struggled with finding the perfect name for their little bundle of joy. Although rumors are swirling that husband and wife have decided to give their first son the middle name 'Robert' after Kim Kardashian's late father, it seems the jury is still out on what first name is worthy of the little boy. Luckily, the Internet has a few suggestions on what to call this celebrity tot.

According to Us Weekly, most people like the trend started with the first Kimye offspring, and want their son to be dubbed 'Easton West.' South West is a less popular suggestion (although Kris Jenner claims to be a fan of this choice), with only a few angling for 'West Robert West' as the child's moniker.

People love technology, and that love has led to a rising trend of couples naming their children after Instagram filters. You read that right: little Lux, Ludwig, and Kelvin are all heading to daycare. And considering how often Kim Kardashian has broken the Internet with her selfies, maybe an Instagram-themed name is the perfect choice for her second child.

When your last name is 'West,' there are simply too many good names to choose from. Suggestions have ranged from 'Go,' 'Wild Wild,' and a host of other creative options. Some of these are probably jokes, but considering how out there some people get when naming their children, you never can tell.

But maybe Kim and Kanye will defy expectations and go with a more traditional choice, like Kanye, Jr. After all, that's already what the Internet has dubbed him -- why not make it official? Plus it will leave two more directionally inspired names should Kim and Kanye opt to have more children.
Whatever they choose, we're sure the power couple is over the moon for the newest addition to the Kardashian-West family.
