Kim Kardashian has revealed that she's not entirely happy with her daughter Chicago's name...

As all new parents will know, there's a LOT of pressure when choosing your baby's name.

You've got to pick something that will sound nice with your surname, something that your family are happy with and something that goes with your other kids' names if it's not your first.

But if you're a Kardashian, the family approval element is by far the most important.

After Kim Kardashian's third baby was born via a surrogate in January this year, the family seemed to be taking a while to announce what they'd decided to name the little girl.

Fans were convinced she'd have a similar name to her sister North and brother Saint - but we were all a little surprised when she was announced as Chicago.

But Kim, 37, has now revealed that it wasn't her first choice for baby name - and that she's still not sure about it.

Speaking to Ellen DeGeneres on her show, Kim revealed that she'd originally wanted the baby to be named after her grandmother, Mary-Jo Shannon.

She admitted: "We were gonna name her Jo because my grandma Mary Jo or we were gonna go with Grace and then it was Chicago."

Confused, Ellen then asked: "But you told me you wanted a one syllable, when I was pitching names you said you wanted one syllable," to which Kim responded: "And I did...!"

Ellen probed: "So... Chicago is not one syllable," which forced Kim to admit that she's not entirely happy with the situation.

She said: "Yeah, it kind of messes with me, I'm not gonna lie. I really like the one syllable thing."

Uh oh...

Ellen asked whether it had been Kanye's choice because he's a Chicago native, and Kim sighed: "I don't even know!

"Obviously because he's from Chicago but that is a place that made him."

Oh DEAR oh dear.
