On May 10, Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West welcomed their fourth child, via surrogate. Upon his arrival Kardashian tweeted, “He’s here and he’s perfect.” Now, a week later, Kardashian West has revealed the name of her new son: Psalm West.
In true Kardashian style, the reality star shared her baby’s name on Instagram. Kardashian West posted a screenshot of a text from her husband that read, “Beautiful Mother’s Day. With the arrival of our fourth child. We are blessed beyond measure. We have everything we need.” The photo was simply captioned, “Psalm West.”
The West’s are known for their unique baby names (along with the rest of the Kardashian clan.) But the name Psalm is in keeping with the biblical theme they drew from to name their older son, Saint West, 3. Psalm also joins his older sisters. North West, 5, and Chicago West, 1, whose names both come from a more geographic origin. And while fans were here for baby West’s name, many took to Twitter to express their confusion over how to properly pronounce it.
According to People the West’s long had a name in mind for their son, “but wanted to meet the baby before they decided.” Kardashian West also told Jimmy Kimmel, “I usually go about three or four days nameless until I feel like it really connects with the baby.”
And while Psalm might have the name most similar to Saint, Kardashian West has made it very clear that he’s the most like his sister Chicago. She called Psalm, “Chicago’s twin.” “I’m sure he will change a lot but now he looks just like her,” she wrote. But from what we can tell of Kardashian West’s photos, Psalm looks like a happy and healthy newborn.
Congratulations to the Kardashian West clan. Bible, we think this is your cutest baby name yet.
