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.

ChastitySunshine (@ChastityBelt33)  May 17, 2019 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!!

— Georgie Girl (@fattyfishsticks) 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

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!”
