(USA Today) --North West is a perfectly fine name, thankyouverymuch, says three-time grandmother Kris Jenner.
The matriarch of the Kardashian clan visited The View Tuesday to promote her upcoming talk show and of course to dish a little about her new granddaughter.
When co-host Barbara Walters questioned the decision of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West to give their daughter such a, um, directional name, Jenner took it all in stride saying she thought it was sweet.
"There's been a lot of controversy," Walters said of the unique moniker. "I mean, it's funny, but do you really want your child named 'North West,' and would you have preferred it have been a 'K' (name)? Grandma, I know it's their decision, but how do you feel about them naming their little girl North?"
Jenner replied that she was happy with the name.
"I love the name 'North.' I'm pro-North, absolutely," Jenner said. "The way (Kim) explained it to me, north means highest power, and North is their highest point together. I thought that was really sweet."
Plus, Jenner added, it's rare that people are called by their first and last names in most daily conversations and interactions.
"You don't walk around calling somebody, 'Hi, North West!'" she quipped.
Jenner is also grandmother to Mason, 3, and Penelope, 1, whose parents are Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick.
