Psalm West: Twitter Roasts Kim and Kanye Over New Baby Name

Last week, Kim Kardashian revealed the name of her new baby: Psalm West.

Her fourth child with Kanye West is just a newborn, but is already getting a lot of attention.

Because his name is ... unusual.

Unusual and, even though fans can never quite guess what Kimye will come up with, the name was also unexpected.

Some people are offended on religious grounds.

Others just feel sorry for the guy who has to grow up being named Psalm.

But his future embarrassment may be worth it for the rest of us, who get to enjoy the jokes and memes. Take a look:

1. Kimye did it again

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed their fourth child via gestational carrier. And then, very casually, Kim dropped his name on Friday afternoon.

2. This is the tweet that started it all

Psalm West is a hell of a name. No name has gotten as much attention as North West, but that's because that name was BRILLIANT and also the first. The current, every-day-is-a-new-horror political climate probably didn't help Psalm make a splash, either. North was born during simpler times.

3. The choice was a shock

In case you are unfamiliar, a psalm is a sacred song or hymn, and the term specifically refers to those found in the holy books of Judaism and Christianity. Using it as a name was a lot for people to swallow.

4. The obvious jokes poured in

if you've studied the Old Testament for either personal or academic reasons, you have to admit that this is a bit of a thigh-slapper.

5. Send in the memes

Absolutely floored to see that someone did a redraw of the extremely famous meme of Da'Vonne Rogers from Big Brother ... as Jesus. Somebody probably did this for Easter one year, all so that it could one day be used for commentary on a Kimye baby name.

6. Speaking of religious reactions

It's clear that some people thought that Kim and Kanye were getting a little ahead of themselves with their baby names. If they have a fifth child, perhaps they can be named Hubris.
