During an interview with Hip Hollywood, the revelation that Laila Ali isn’t a fan of the name North West came out … In fact, the daughter of famed boxer Muhammad Ali doesn’t like any “stupid” Hollywood baby name.
She says parents should consider that babies with unique names grow up and have to deal with those names as adults.
“I don’t like crazy names. I don’t like them,” said Laila, who has two children, daughter Sydney J. Conway and son Curtis Muhammad Conway, Jr. “I don’t think it makes any sense. You have to think about the child and as they get older what they have to deal with. A lot of people do things as a fad and they want to get some attention, but it’s like this is your child.”
And she doesn’t care who the celebrity parents are and even calls out Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, indirectly.
“For me, if it’s crazy but cool and nice and it makes sense then that’s one thing,” she said, “but North and South and Leaf and Waterdrop and all these names it’s like ‘Come on now!’”
“I don’t care who you are,” she added. “That’s just stupid! Period.”
But something tells us Kimye couldn’t care less about Laila’s opinion.
