If you’re wondering how Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West named their fourth child, a recent episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians has answers.

Even though we might want to ask Kardashian West how she chose Psalm Ye, her own mama got the jump on this major moniker question. Kris asked her daughter on KUWTK, “Kimberly, how did you guys settle on Psalm?” So how does the reality star-turned-mogul answer?

Kardashian West replied to Kris with the answer, “Cause his name was gonna be Ye. Kanye doesn’t like Ye cause Ye doesn’t mean anything.” As it turns out, baby Psalm’s aunt Kylie (Jenner) was the one who pushed for Psalm.

Kardashian West went on to add, “Kylie called at the last second and was like, ‘No!’ Psalm and Saint sound good together, and the kids call him now Psalm Ye.”

There you have it—the mystery is revealed!
