Kim Kardashian is crediting Pharrell Williams and Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour for helping her and Kanye choose the name of their daughter, North. 

Kim tells the British version of GQ magazine that the name North was originally nothing more than a rumor in the media that they didn't consider seriously.  However, they changed their minds after Pharrell and Anna Wintour complimented the name. 

Apparently, Pharrell was the first to approach Kim and Kanye as they ate lunch at New York City's Mercer Hotel, followed a while later by Wintour.  She called North a "genius name."  Kim says from that day forward the name "sort of stuck."
