Kim Kardashian is from L.A., and Kanye West is from Chicago. So why is their newborn baby girl named North West?

Well, a source tells E! News exclusively the name is much more than just a cute play on geography. In fact, Kim and 'Ye are telling everyone the real inspiration behind baby Kimye's unique moniker is that, "North means highest power."

"North is the most high. There is nothing higher than North," explains the source. "And, when it comes to the stars, the sun rises in the East and sets in the West."

The new parents "look at her as being their highest point together," says a source. "Nothing is more special than North. Kim keeps saying, 'She is our North Star.'"

The duo klearly adore their new addition, and they're very quickly adjusting to the roles of Mom and Dad. "They are splitting duties," a family source tells E! News. "Kanye is so hands on. He's changing diapers."

As for the new mama? "Kim always feared having a baby. She thought it would be so hard, but it's all coming so naturally to her," adds the source. "She's loving motherhood, and all her fears have gone away."
