Kim Kardashian announced the name of her fourth child with Kanye West on Friday — Psalm �— and social media lit up with sneers.

Kardashian tweeted the words Psalm West with an image of the swaddled infant boy born May 9.

“With the arrival of our fourth child … we are blessed beyond measure,” a message on that image said. “We have everything we need.”

The predominant gut response of social media was apparently to make fun of the name with images of church (a psalm is a sacred song), laughing faces and shaking heads.

Comedian John Fugelsang tweeted a reference to the annual South by Southwest conference in Austin, Texas: “Kim & Kanye have every right to name the baby Psalm West but I was honestly hoping they’d name this one South By South.”

Culture critic Ira Madison III tweeted, “Psalm West sounds like a 1941 Errol Flynn movie but ok.”

Betches, the Twitter account for the comedic social media collective of the same name, remarked, “Psalm West sounds like the location of a new desert music festival that costs $1,000 a ticket.”
