As much as Kim, Kanye West, and the rest of the Kardashian family try to defend baby North's name, celebrities like boxer Laila Ali aren't buying it.

HipHollywood.com had the chance to meet up with the daughter of the legendary Muhammad Ali to get her weigh in on the rarity of the name North West.

"I don't like crazy names, I don't like them," said Laila adamantly.

When coming up with baby names, Ali strongly believes that long term well-being of the child should be considered.

"I think it doesn't make any sense and you have to think about the child and as they get older what they have to deal with," said the offspring of "The Greatest."

Although the athletic wife of former NFL star Curtis Conway is a fan of creativity, she believes that baby names at least have to have more meaning than being the definition of a latitude and longitude direction like North West.

"If its crazy, but cool and nice and makes sense...then that's one thing," said the retired boxing mom. " But North and South, and Leaf, and Water Drop, and all these names... C'mon now."

She then looked directly into the camera as if she was talking to Kimye and the other crazy baby naming celebrities directly and said : "I don't care who you are that is just stupid, period."

Ali went further to suggest the bizarre naming phenomenon is a tactic for celebrities to continue staying relevant.

"A lot of people do things because it is a fad and they want to get some attention."

Actress and mother Garcelle Beauvais, famous for her part as Fancy on "The Jamie Foxx Show." also had something to say about celebrity babies being committed to awkward names due to their over the top parents. She articulately left the accused anonymous.

"When people think about naming a baby, they also have to remember that they grow up. They become grown women or grown men and some names are not so great for a grown woman, I'm not going to say [any names]...I think people are getting carried away. It's nice to be creative obviously, but you also have to think they are going to grow up."











Going back to Laila's point on attention seeking, is Kim Kardashian using the birth and name of her first born child to stir up more publicity. Is she going to desperate measures to stay significant? It is a possibility.

On Thursday it was reported by The Huffington Post that Kim posted a picture of her holding an infant with the caption "Love these precious moments." Since she just gave birth to North, outsiders could only assume that's who she was referring to. However, not the case. It was actually a picture of her holding her sister Kourtney's son, Mason Disick, who is over 3-years-old now by the way.

This trickery caused an uproar amongst Kim's fans, who blamed her for insulting their intelligence with this intentional misleading photo.

"Enough kim !! We already know this is not ur baby north west !!" commented Anabel Ibarra on Facebook. "U want millions of dollars just to see ur baby ? C'mom ... Ur baby worth that money? Cuz i dont think so !!!"

This is similar to the time her mother Kris Jenner used a baby North West double to get ratings on the premiere of her new talk show.

While Kim is becoming a habitual practical joker, she remains in hiding post pregnancy.

Kristen Wilkerson, another commentator on Kim's Facebook suggested if Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, can be modest enough to reveal the royal baby right after delivery, the The "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star has no excuse.

"Kate Middleton looked absolutely stunning ONE day after giving birth and we've already seen the Prince and her out and about in clothes people are already causing to back order and you're still MIA? Unacceptable! I get the kid came early and you had to have down time and what not but hell even women in the real workforce only get 6 weeks!"
