Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star and grandma Kris Jenner declared herself an advocate for North West, the name of Kim Kardashian’s newborn baby with Kanye West.

While the name drew plenty of jokes on late-night and Twitter (as well as Joy Behar), Kris told the ladies of “The View” that she loves the name.

“There’s been a lot of controversy,” said Barbara Walters, addressing the elephant in the room. “I mean, it’s funny, but do you really want your child named North West, and would you have preferred it have been with a K? How do you feel about the decision?”

“I love the name North,” Kris answered. “I’m pro-North!”

Jenner went on to explain the meaning behind the unusual name, stating that Kim explained that “North means highest power, and North is their highest point together.”
