It turns out that Kendall Jenner isn’t necessarily the biggest fan of one of her nephew’s names. The model and reality star made the confession during her Sept. 5 appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Kendall recalled how her sister, Kim Kardashian, asked for help picking out a baby name for her and husband Kanye West’s youngest son, who was born in May.
Speaking on the late-night talk show, Kendall opened up about how she headed over to Kim’s house ahead of the birth — Psalm was delivered via surrogate — in order to help her sister and fellow Keeping up with the Kardashians star choose some baby names.
“Kim made me come to her house and like, help her pick a name and it was this whole thing,” Kendall recalled in an interview with Cosmopolitan, where she admitted that choosing a name wasn’t exactly easy. The model said they went through so many different options together and things went on for so long, that eventually Kim ended up settling on a name that Kendall wasn’t the biggest fan of.
“She would not let me leave the house until we figured out a name,” Kendall continued, suggesting she doesn’t love the name Psalm, adding, “and then ended up going with a name that I didn’t even care for as much.”
However, the model did backtrack slightly, telling the late-night host that all of the names they picked out were “beautiful,” but she was actually “kind of rooting for another name” for Kim and Kanye’s now 3-month-old.
But despite not necessarily being the biggest fan of his name, the star did tell Fallon that she thought the little boy is both “awesome” and “adorable.”
Shortly after his birth, Kim and Kendall’s mom Kris Jenner opened up about the unique name choice and confirmed that the couple chose the name because of its biblical reference.
“The inspiration was the Book of Psalms in the Bible,” Kris told Entertainment Tonight earlier this year in a red carpet interview. “I think it’s just a wonderful way to celebrate how they feel. And he’s such a blessing, so it’s perfect.”
Kim has since shared snaps of her adorable baby boy on Instagram, most recently posting a sweet photo of herself cuddling up to Psalm as he rocked an orange t-shirt and pants.
In the caption of the cute mother/son shot, Kendall’s big sister told her millions of social media followers that he was “calm” and sleeps through the night even at his young age.
Kim and Kanye are also the parents of 6-year-old North, 3-year-old Saint, and 1-year-old Chicago.
