Kim Kardashian wants to name her baby Easton West.

The reality TV star - who is expecting her and boyfriend Kanye West's first child in July - shot down speculation the couple are planning to call their little one North, but admitted they have drawn up a shortlist of potential monikers and she is hoping the rapper will allow her to call their kid Easton West.

When asked about plans to name the couple's baby North, she replied: "That is not true. That is not one of the names on our list. But you know what name I do like? But it probably won't be on [the list]. 'Cause it kinda goes with North, I like Easton. Easton West. I think that's cute."

Following the revelation she was immediately asked whether she is expecting a boy, but insisted Easton West would be a suitable name whatever the sex of their child.

Speaking on 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno' last night, she added: "Boys names are good for girls. We have a list and some of them are 'K' names some of them aren't."

The 32-year-old beauty revealed she told her mother Kris Jenner and sister Kourtney Kardashian about her pregnancy before letting her other sibling Khloe Kardashian in on the news because she was "nervous" about telling the 28-year-old star, who has struggled to conceive in the past three years.

She explained: "I had Kourtney come with me to tell Khloe 'cause I was a little nervous.

"Because I know she really really really wants a baby. So I felt like I'm gonna need some moral support to tell her. And she was so happy! But I was really nervous to tell her. And she kind of got mad that I was nervous, [she] thought it was ridiculous."

For this year’s sausage survey we focused on a high proportion of meat. It had to be over 65% — a substantial sausage that would barbecue well in summer, but that also could be simmered gently in a tomato sauce for 15 minutes to make a quick meal — this way, sausages don’t have to be grilled/fried first.Summer bangers: The top 8 meaty sausages
