While Kim Kardashian and Kanye West may have called an end to their six year marriage, Kim has decided that she’d like to keep Kanye’s name.

A source has revealed to outlet TMZ that Kim Kardashian wants to keep her married name so she can keep the same name her kids, North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm.

The 40-year-old reality star filed for divorce in February this year after realising that the relationship she had with Kanye wasn’t what she wanted. She has remained amicable with Kanye, and has every plan to maintain a healthy parenting relationship together for the sake of the kids.

Kim spoke about their co-parenting during the Keeping Up With The Kardashions Reunion, “We have an amazing co-parenting relationship and I respect him so much. That was my friend first, first and foremost for a long time so I can’t see that going away.”

While Kim plans on making no changes to her name, Kanye has already put changes in motion to change his own name for ‘personal reasons’. The rapper has petitioned to change his name to simply ‘YE’. He is waiting for a California judge to officially sign off on the change.

Have you been through a separation? Did you decide to keep your name or change it?

  • Fair enough! Can’t he easy living a divorce so publicly, but Kim has handled everything with dignity


  • Up to her. Everyone still calls her Kim Kardashian anyway.


  • It’s her decision what she is doing.


  • I’d do the same if I was in her position


  • I think this is totally reasonable on her part. Good on you Kim for thinking of your kids.


  • I’ve never known her as Kim West, she’s always Kim Kardashian, so can’t see it having too big of an impact on her public profile


  • I have been divorced twice. I kept my previous married name until I remarried again.


  • This is her personal choice and I’m glad she’s thinking of her children.


  • Kim has good reasons and as long as she is happy, that is the main thing

    • The family dynamic and what works for people is all that matters.


  • It is definitely a personal choice.


  • I totally get that, i probably would too


  • I understand where she is coming from


  • I went through a divorce. Was in no hurry to change my name until I fell pregnant with my now partner. I definitely wanted my name changed before having a baby so I went back 5o my maiden name asap.


  • I can understand you want to carry the same name as your kids

    • I don’t follow these people but good to read they have a good co-parenting relationship for the kids sake


  • This makes a lot of sense, especially as a lot of people probably still think of her as a Kardashian anyway. So it doesn’t matter much if she’s legally West.
