When it comes to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s relationship, apparently nothing burns brighter than their North star.

During a Tuesday appearance on The View to promote her new talk show Kris, Kardashian’s mother Kris Jenner took time to explain the real meaning behind her granddaughter’s name amid jokes of possible alternatives including Pan-Am.

“I love the name North — I’m pro North, absolutely,” Jenner says. “The way [Kim] explained it to me was that North means highest power and she says that North is their highest point together.”

She adds, “I thought that was very sweet.”

Despite the direction of the 1-week-old‘s full name, Jenner is quick to point out that baby girl’s surname isn’t an issue.

“You don’t walk around calling somebody North West — you just [call them by their first name],” she says, sharing the couple have already decided on a nickname for their daughter.

But before the lineup of ladies could move on to the next topic, Barbara Walters couldn’t help but add, “If they have other children [they could use] South West [and] East West.”

“That’s Barbara. She’s always thinking!” quips Jenner.
