Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have a knack for unique baby names, and this time around it's no different. Their first child, a daughter, is named North West. Then, there's son Saint West. Their third child, another daughter, is named Chicago West, and when the news of a fourth child was made public, people were wondering what his name would be.
There was speculation that his name might be Robert, named after Kim's father, as she has been speaking more openly about following in his footsteps and honoring his legacy by becoming a lawyer. That being said, Robert seemed too normal for the eccentric couple. When Kanye West is involved, nothing is ever normal.
"Kanye has been going through a spiritual revival lately. Every name has a meaning that is personal between Kanye and Kim and the child," a source close to the couple said.
This week, Kim announced the name of their son, who was born on May 10th. She posted a screenshot of a text from her husband, which included a picture of the baby, and captioned it "Psalm West."
The name is very spiritual, which should come as no surprise to anyone who has been following the family recently.
"Psalm is a good reflection of where Kanye and Kim are spiritually," the source said. "Kanye is very involved in choosing the names. He and Kim do exactly what every couple does, where they each bring up names and the other one gives their feedback. It's very traditional that way. Kanye would never just choose a name that Kim doesn't like, or vice versa. The names are things that they mutually agree upon."
Kim and Kanye have been hosting a "Sunday Service" in California, where hoards of people gather to worship through music. The experience has been "healing" for Kanye, according to Kim.
"It's honestly more like a healing experience for my husband," she said. "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."
The reality star noted, though, that it's not just for those of the Christian faith.
"Kourtney's best friends come all the time and they're Muslim. All my Jewish friends came on Sunday; they loved it," she said. "Everyone that comes understands it's just a really healing experience with an amazing choir, and amazing messages about love to start off your week."
The couple now has two daughters with geographically inspired names, while their sons have religious-inspired ones. But will there be more babies in the future?
"Kim and Kanye feel complete with the addition of their newest son," a source said. "Kim has always wanted a big family, and this expansion has filled her and Kanye with so much happiness. The couple is enjoying this special moment as a family and taking the time to fully embrace each new moment that comes with this new chapter."
