Until now, however, fans knew only that he was “perfect,” according to mom. She kept the name of Chicago, Saint and North’s new sibling under wraps until one week later, despite much speculation.
Kardashian dropped the news on social media Friday in a short message: “Psalm West.”
As Kardashian has been known to do, she elicited a flurry of reactions. Quickly.
Her name revelation racked up hundreds of thousands of likes within the first 30 minutes of its posting. The instant verdict was that the name was a hit, especially after someone helpfully shared the official definition of “psalm” for those who weren’t familiar.
There was also a minor discussion about how to pronounce it.

And, of course, there were a few critics. After all, people have heated opinions about both the Kardashians and baby names.
Dang.. what a missed opportunity to name your child “Key”. I love Key West ☀️🌴— Lauren G⚜️ (@lauriellegab) May 17, 2019
But, for the most part, Kardashian fans were elated.

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— TheRealSavannahLynn (@amensavannahlyn) May 17, 2019
OMGGG I guessed his name was going to be Hymn West because music and Sunday Service is so important to your family, Psalm & Hymn are so closely related!!— Tash Ж (@tash_kardash) May 17, 2019

The name brings to mind the exclusive Sunday Service that West has presided over and that his family has attended since January.
Kardashian and West will mark their fifth anniversary on May 24.
She noted their special day in a post one day before announcing her youngest son’s name.
“5 years and 4 kids,” Kardashian wrote in part. “Life couldn’t be better!”
