Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s daughter’s name is the subject of online bets after reports surfaced Saturday the reality star had given birth.

The reality star and her boyfriend Kanye West reportedly welcomed their first child at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles Saturday.

Kim's family is notorious for picking names that begin with the letter "K".

The reality star's mother is named Kris, and Kim has sisters Khloe, Kourtney, Kendall and Kylie.

The letter is already a theme for the couple, with Kanye also contributing to the trend.

Now websites are popping up for interested parties looking to place bets on their daughter's name.

The New York Daily News reports Irish bookmaker Paddy Power is among companies publishing betting odds for a list of monikers.

Kay shows a 20/1 chance of being chosen, while Kim has 8/1 odds and Kris 20/1.

The couple's nickname, Kimye, has odds of 25/1.

Other names like Mia and Lara show 33/1 odds.

Betting website Live Odds places Krystal, Kristen, Kara and Kacey among the most popular.

The parents have so far been tight-lipped about the reported birth.

Earlier this year Kim admitted a “K” name would be a large possibility.

"I think it would be really cute cause Kanye and I are both K’s… but half the names on our list aren't K’s… we still have time, whatever feels right," she told Extra in March, adding, "Kanye being the father wants something that’s unique."

Kim was then forced to brush off speculation the couple had landed on the name North West.
