The couple’s new baby, Psalm, will be the little brother of North, South and Chicago West.
â€œThe inspiration was the Book of Psalms in the Bible,â€ Jenner toldÂ ET Onlineof her daughterÂ Kim Kardashian WestÂ and son-in-lawÂ Kanye Westâ€˜s choice of moniker for their fourth child. â€œI think itâ€™s just a wonderful way to celebrate how they feel. And heâ€™s such a blessing, so itâ€™s perfect.â€
The coupleâ€™s newest child was born May 10 via a surrogate, but they waited a week before announcing on Twitter that their baby boyâ€™s name was â€œPsalm.â€
If youâ€™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,
â€œThe 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.â€
Another fan wrote,
â€œItâ€™s actually pretty perfect. â€
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.
