What’s in a name? A baby by any other name would be just as cute.
Still, poor baby North West. Her name was voted the worst baby name of 2013 by more than 5,000 BabyCenter members. It’s not her fault her name is name is a compass point.
Then there’s poor Cricket. Her (his?) name got voted the second worst. But because his parents are Busy Philipps & Marc Silverstein and not Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, he (she?) was able to escape the top honors. Because having the name Cricket seems more of a burden than North, no matter what the poll results said.
