Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s baby boy’s name, Saint, wouldn’t fly if the couple lived in New Zealand. According to the New Zealand Herald, the name Saint would have been rejected by the Department of Internal Affairs because it’s included on a list of unacceptable baby names. 

Saint, as well as other religious names such as Messiah, Christ, Bishop, and Lucifer, are forbidden in the country, which doesn’t allow any name that implies a title or rank.

In 2014, the names Duke, Prince, Princess, and Majesty were also banned, as well as the unique moniker Special Constable.

Kardashian, who is already mom of daughter North West, welcomed their son on Saturday, Dec. 5. On Monday, Dec. 7, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star announced via her website that she and West decided on the name Saint West. 

As previously reported, the couple chose the name because while the Selfish author was still pregnant, they were already referring to him as a “saint” given her struggle to conceive.
