Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed their son on the 10th of May and revealed one week later that they named their baby boy Psalm West. A lot of fans tried to guess why they would give their son the name Psalm; Psalm means “Song” in Hebrew and there’s also the Book of Psalms in the Bible. A source told E News that Psalm was chosen by Kanye and is a representation of their spirituality.
The source explained, “It was a very important name to him, and Kim wanted the name to have a significance that held a true representation of their family, so she agreed on the name.”
A second source shared similar sentiments about the meaning. “The name Psalm was very important to Kanye and where he is spiritually,” they said. “He presented it to Kim and she thought about it and ultimately agreed.”
All of Kim and Kanye’s children have personal stories and definitions behind their names. For their oldest kid North West, it’s all about the geographical position and what it signifies. “North means highest power,” a source mentioned at that time.
Saint West’s name refers back to her “difficult pregnancy” and how he was “a blessing” for the family. Kim apparently also liked the name Easton, but Kanye wasn’t a fan.
It turns out that they almost named their other daughter,Chicago West, Grace or Jo. But Kanye hails from the Windy City, thus it’s a homage to the city “that made him.”
