Finally on Friday, after days of keeping her adoring public waiting, Kim Kardashian West announced that she and Kanye have named their new daughter Chicago West. The baby was born on January 15 via surrogate and the couple has either been keeping the name under wraps since then or was waiting to keep everyone in suspense. Knowing the Kardashian clan, we’ll likely never know which one. We wonder how the east side of Chicago is feeling right now?

The response was pretty much immediate. Sister, Khloe came in right away with a nickname (and pronunciation for those who aren’t from Chicago). That’s Chi as in “shy,” not “chi” as in “chai.”

Some people thought it was too adorable for words that the couple named their daughter after Kanye’s hometown of Chicago.

While it’s possible that Chicago is named for the city where her father grew up, Chicago the Musical was pretty sure that the baby was actually named after them.

And then the good folks of the TV dramas Chicago Fire, Chicago PD and Chicago Med got involved welcoming the newest West to the city. We’re pretty sure that’s not where she’s going to live, but that’s beside the point.

And then some people just had jokes about the name. What did you expect? It happened with North (in fact, we all thought North was a joke) and Saint (come on), of course Twitter is going to have its fun with Chicago.

Well, we guess there’s only one thing left to say. Welcome to the world, Chicago!
