A Hebrew word, Psalm means “song”. Psalm West was born via surrogate on May 15. The couple have three other children; Six-year-old North West, Three-year-old Saint West and one-year-old Chicago West. The newly-born’s biblical name comes amid Kanye’s Sunday Service gatherings that Kim says has been a “healing experience” for her husband.

A source told PEOPLE that the name was a reflection of Kanye’s renewed dedication to his Christian faith.

“Kanye has been going through a spiritual revival lately. Every name has a meaning that is personal between Kanye and Kim and the child. Psalm is a good reflection of where Kanye and Kim are spiritually.”Elaborating on the process to choose a name, the source added that Kanye is very involved in choosing the name. “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,” the source added. “I know that both of them read the Bible regularly now. Kanye loves the Books of Poetry of the Bible: Job, Psalms, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon. He reads them over and over.”
“Psalms is the longest book in the Bible, but Kanye believes that there’s a lot of wisdom in them.” Another Keeping Up With the Kardashians source said the pair already had a name in mind but wanted to meet the baby before they finalized it.
