Kanye and Kim have yet to choose their new son’s first name–but maybe his middle?

I know Kim K. fans everywhere are just dying to know what she and Kanye will name their newborn son (hopefully another directional name is out of the question). But, you’re just going to have to wait a little while longer.

Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West have yet to choose their new son’s name (or at least they haven’t spilled the beans), just one day after he was born, a source told PEOPLE.

Hey, it makes sense. Choosing a baby’s name is a big decision for new parents, and Kimye took nearly a week to name their daughter, North, 2.

But, a source said that Kardashian West told people at the hospital that she was going to use her late father’s name–Robert–for the boy’s middle name.

“It’s like the last thing Kanye and I did when North was born,” she reportedly said. “We didn’t name her for like seven days. I feel like it will just come to us.”

The couple welcomed their baby boy into the world at a Los Angeles hospital on Saturday. They had lots of support and were visited by Kim’s sisters Kourtney Kardashian, 36, and Khloe Kardashian, 35, along with her mother, Kris Jenner, 60. Her sisters Kendall and Kylie were away, E! News reported.

Kardashian West learned that her baby was breech, and she wrote on her website and app that she was hoping to avoid having a C-section. “Obviously, if it’s an emergency and for the safety of my son, I will get a C-section–but if I don’t need one, I’d rather not,” Kardashian West wrote, according to PEOPLE.  The previously mentioned source said that she did not have to deliver her baby via C-section, which if true, was surely a relief for Kardashian West.

Congratulations Kimye! Hopefully the name game will be stress-free.

I don’t think I’ll ever truly understand the world’s obsession with Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim and the rest of the Kardashian clan. I think Alec Shankman, former reality show talent agent and founder of online casting service GotCast, said it best: “We’ve entered an era where ‘fame’ has far less to do with genuine talent and love for one’s craft and far more to do with tabloid scandal and reality television antics.”

However, I’ll give Kim K. some credit. Though she may have “launched” her fame due to her one-time BFF status with Paris Hilton and her infamous sex tape with rapper Ray J, she hasn’t stayed famous for those reasons.

Nevertheless, I don’t think my opinion really matters on this one. The Kardashians are in the headlines every other day, and I don’t see that changing!
