The couple recently welcomed their fourth child via surrogate, and many people have had mixed feelings about the newborn’s name.
Though Kim and Kanye love the unique moniker they gave their baby boy, it wasn’t until he was already her before the couple finally settled on his name.
They were going between a couple of names
Picking out the perfect baby name is definitely not a task that is taken lightly.
Just like most parents, Kim and Kanye West had a very tough time deciding on what to name their baby boy.
The couple went back and forth with many different names for their son, but it wasn’t until he arrived that they were able to decide on naming him “Psalm”.
According to a source, Kim and Kanye “had multiple names” for their baby boy and “didn’t decide [on Psalm] until a day after the birth.”
Now that the baby is here and has the “perfect” name, Kim and Kanye couldn’t be happier their family of six is now complete.
“All the kids are so excited for the new baby. It’s a very special time,” the source shared. “Kim and Kanye are so happy. Four [kids] is the same as three in terms of how much they have on their plate. Their life is totally rooted in their family.”
The name pays tribute to Kanye’s Sunday services
When it comes to picking out baby names, Kim Kardashian revealed that she doesn’t fully decide on a name until the baby is born.
While talking about giving her kids unique names on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Kim shared her lengthy process of picking the perfect name.
“We all weigh in. I definitely take a family survey,” Kim shared. “But it’s usually after the baby’s born and or trying to figure out what the baby looks like. I usually go about three or four days nameless until I feel it really connects with me.”
Once Kim and Kanye welcomed their baby boy on May 10, the couple took one look at him and knew what name they wanted to go with.
Since Kanye’s Sunday Services have become a phenomenon these last few months, many are certain the couple wanted to pay tribute to the rapper’s worship celebrations.
According to Merriam-Webster, the name “Psalm” “sacred song or poem used in worship, especially one of the biblical hymns collected in the Book of Psalms.”
Since Kanye’s Sunday Services are basically spreading the word of Christ through music, it is understandable why they went with a religious name for their child.
“It’s honestly more like a healing experience for my husband,” Kardashian told Elle back in April. “It’s just music, there’s no sermon. It’s definitely something he believes in, Jesus, and there’s a Christian vibe. But there’s no preaching. It’s just a very spiritual Christian experience.”
Though many people still have mixed feelings about the name “Psalm”, it fits perfectly with the rest of Kim and Kanye’s children.
