The “KUWTK” couple reveals their newborn son’s name one week after Kim announced his arrival.
A Keeping Up With the Kardashians source told PEOPLE that the couple “had a name in mind, but wanted to meet the baby before they decided.”
Here’s a hint: “Psalm” means song in Hebrew
Why Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s 4th Baby Name Is Perfect for Their Family
The couple’s new baby, Psalm, will be the little brother of North, South and Chicago West.
“The inspiration was the Book of Psalms in the Bible,” Jenner told ET Onlineof her daughter Kim Kardashian West and son-in-law Kanye West‘s choice of moniker for their fourth child. “I think it’s just a wonderful way to celebrate how they feel. And he’s such a blessing, so it’s perfect.”
The couple’s newest child was born May 10 via a surrogate, but they waited a week before announcing on Twitter that their baby boy’s name was “Psalm.”
If you’re not up on theology, a psalm is a sacred song or hymn and is also the title of a book in the Bible.
Fan reactions to the name Psalm West have been mixed
As you might expect, the new name inspired strong reactions from social media users. Some despise it and some loved it with one fan writing,
“The book of Psalm was created by King David to give praises to God. This name is perfect for where you and Kanye are in your lives right now. You are publicly giving God praise for the world to see.”
Another fan wrote,
“It’s actually pretty perfect. ”
Despite often criticised over lifestyle choices, the couple have both been open about their Christian faith.
Kanye West has recently shared videos from a church gathering he has been hosting which includes much gospel music.
