Hey you awesome beautiful people you! Since I am working my butt off making sure to post the best blog posts around for your reading pleasure, I wanted to make a few changes. So I present to you, ladies and gents *Drumroll Please* the new and improved blog feature list for The AshNerdStar Report!
I will be posting interviews featuring some really cool talented people. The interviews will include: musicians, singers, actors/actresses, photographers, comedians, artists, YouTubers, poets, people who are doing awesome things in the community, and more. I decided to do this because I want to show what they love to do with others so they can check out their stuff. It’s always good to showcase other people’s talents to help inspire others who are pursuing their own dreams.

You Know What Grinds My Gears
This is pretty much the only one that I kept from the past blog features list. The idea for this blog feature came from Family Guy. Remember the episode, “Stewie B. Goode” from season four? Peter was at the LackLuster Video Store looking to score some porn to take home and watch. Then the sales clerk told him that they don’t sell porn in anymore. Peter started giving a rant about how the video store stopped selling porn. The loveable news anchor from Channel 5 News, Tom Tucker who also was trying to score some porn overheard Peter’s awesome rant. Tom liked it so much that he gave Peter a daily news segment called: “You Know Really Grinds My Gears” where he rants about general things that irritate him. So I decided to rant about things in the news or in general that really irritate me. It’s kind of like an opportunity to vent out my frustrations in a healthy manner.

On June 15th, 2013, Kim Kardashian gave birth to a baby girl. Apparently the name for the child alone has caused more additional media coverage along with the pregnancy. Now you may be saying: “Ashley, why are you adding more attention to this matter?” I am so glad you asked that question. Well as the history of celebrity and the media have proven there is one thing that happens quite often. When a celebrity has a baby, the child’s name that they give them is so unique it causes a huge media frenzy over it.
We have heard various unique or strange celebrity baby names:
Blue Ivy (Everyone knows whose child this is)
Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altatune Florence (This child has five names)
Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily
Out of this small list of baby names I have presented to you all, these names cannot compare to the one Kim Kardashian and her baby daddy Kanye West named their daughter. Ladies and gentlemen the name that they chose for their daughter is: North West.
Now this is what pretty much grinds my gears. The previous name that they both had picked out for the child was Kaidence Donda West. Now the meaning of the name Kaidence comes from Latin American orgin. Kaidence means “rhythm.” Donda of course is the name of Kanye’s late mother who passed away in 2007. Now this would be considered a pretty name for a girl. But oh no! Kim and Kanye wanted to choose a name that was a popular name for boys in the United States in 1885. I ask you why in the hell would you name a girl a boy’s name?!?! And what also is bad is that the nickname they supposedly gave to the child.The nickname is even better than the name for the child itself. The nickname for baby girl North is Nuri. In Japanese, Nuri means “belief” or “Law.” It also carries an Arabic meaning of “bright” and “luminous.” The meaning of North carries two meanings. One it states a particular geographical location. Two, you say North West together, and the child is named after a popular airline chain.
Of course many people have made jokes about Kim and Kanye’s name choice. I understand that when North or Nuri is old enough she could change her name into something that is more suitable for her. She may even keep the name. Use as a main staple if her dream is to become an entertainer like her father. But honestly, if my parents gave me this name, I would file for emancipation papers. If you ask me that name is kind of bogus. Celebrities do some of the most off the wall things only due to the fact that they have money, fame, and power.
So for all you expecting parents out there trying to find the perfect name for your child or children be smart. Think carefully. I know you want a unique name that carries some kind of significant meaning. If you love your soon-to-be born child, pick a name that resembles the love and care you will give them for the next 18 years of their life. On that note, I wish Kim and Kanye congrats on their beautiful bundle of joy. But that name though. Yikes!
Stay Classy, Homies ^_^.
