The sixth member of the Kardashian West family has finally arrived. On May 10, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed their new son, Psalm, into the world. And the newborn is already just as popular as his parents, as Twitter is abuzz with people’s reactions to his very unique name.
Announced a week after he was born, Psalm’s name is Hebrew for “song.” Kim revealed the moniker on her Instagram with a screenshot of a text from Kanye of Psalm sleeping in his crib.
According to a source close to the couple, the name was a decision that the couple made together. “Psalm is a good reflection of where Kanye and Kim are spiritually,” the source told People, adding that “Kanye has been going through a spiritual revival lately. Every name has a meaning that is personal between Kanye and Kim and the child.”
Despite the deeper meaning behind the Bible-inspired name choice, social media has had a field day with the bizarre moniker. Some people cleverly tweeted their hilarious reactions using puns (“psalm wrong with y’all”).

Others pointed out that Psalm West sounds less like a baby name and more like a luxury retreat.

Then there were a few memes (including a very sassy Jesus!) capturing God’s reaction to Kim naming her baby after one of the books of the Bible.

Another user joked about what life will be like for Psalm once he’s older and starts attending Kanye’s renowned Sunday service. Awkward…
