Hi, my name is…

On Saturday, one day after Kim Kardashian posted a photo to Twitter letting fans know she was more than ready to give birth, came the announcement from on high.

Today, the newest member of the Kandashian family was give a name: Saint West. The announcement was accompanied by an emoji interpretation of Kim, Kanye, daughter North, and son Saint, because this is how empires are built. 

This news has sent waves of traffic to the Twitter account of Canadian musician Saint West, who hasn’t tweeted from that account since 2011, though his last tweet was especially prescient.

With Saint West anointed with a name that could easily carry a clothing line, people on Twitter quickly weighed in. 

But apparently the name isn’t that original: Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz had the name first. Celebrity problems!
