Kim Kardashian and Kanye West named their baby girl North West because of the moniker's meaning to them. Inevitably, though, some outsiders were going to criticize little Nori's unique name.

Rob Kardashian knew this was going to be the case, so he urged the new parents not to listen to the noise.

"I told Kim and Kanye this: I'm like, ‘Yo, people are always going to talk whether it's good or bad. There's always going to be the haters, but do what you guys feel.'" Rob recounted Wednesday on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS FM radio show. "Like, you know everyone's going to say, ‘Oh, you're coming up with some weird celebrity, crazy name.' You know how it is."

"[But] North West, it sounds cool!" he said. "[And] North is the highest point, so it has a lot of meaning to it." 

"I'm happy the baby is healthy and my sister is healthy," he added.

But as excited as Rob is about baby Nori's arrival, he's giving Kim and 'Ye some room to adjust to their new roles as mom and dad. "When it comes to babies I like to give the person all their time with their significant other [to] let them enjoy their moment," the Arthur George sock designer said.

And yes, Rob is already shopping for his niece. "I'm actually looking for like a giant animal to get North," he said. "The baby came a month early. It's so small. She needs a big stuffed animal."

Somehow we think Uncle Rob will find a cute one for Nori to cuddle!
