Kim Kardashian West has spoken about the 'manic minutes' in which her son Psalm was named, with a Government deadline looming.

The 38-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star also answered the revelation that Kendall Jenner 'hated' the name.

Speaking on LIVE with Kelly and Ryan, Kim opened up to hosts Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest about the final hours before she had to officially give the newborn a name, after he arrived by a surrogate.

Kim explained the process of naming a child, saying: "There’s like a grace period of when you have to name your child before you have to go into the government and do the paperwork.

“You’ve got 10 days.”

It may come as no surprise then that the reality star left it until the tenth day and then turned to her family for help,as the deadline loomed.

Her husband, 41-year-old rapper Kanye, was otherwise occupied on the day and armed with the shortlist that they had, she consulted her sisters to find which one best suited the newest arrival to the family.

Kim continued: "In the morning, I woke up and Kanye was working and busy and I know our list and so I called every sister and was like, ‘What are you all doing?'

Kendall was not a fan of the name, Psalm
 

"Kendall was available, so I’m like, ‘Come over now, you’re not leaving the house until we get the name.'"

Kylie Jenner joined them on FaceTime and the naming committee was complete but they didn't all see eye-to-eye on the name, with Kendall later admitting she hated the baby's moniker.

Kim explained: "Kylie and I were vibing on the same name and so I have this big hallway and we’re screaming out every name like, ‘Psalm get over here!’ — trying to see what named we liked the best."

With 23-year-old Kendall not feeling the name, Kim said: "I was driving her crazy."

Despite the looming deadline, Kim decided they all needed a break so the deadlock could be broken.

She said: "So I was like, ‘Let’s take a break. Let’s watch a movie. Let’s get our nails done,'

“Kylie and I really vibed on the name.

"I think Kendall was more mad that her choice wasn’t first, so she was hating on Fallon."

Kendall told Jimmy Fallon her thoughts on the name
 

Kendall had opened up about her dislike of the name on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, earlier this month,

Speaking to the talk show host, the supermodel said: "Kim made me come to her house and like, help her pick a name.

"She would not let me leave the house until we figured out a name. And then ended up going with a name that I didn’t even like, that I didn’t care for as much.

"I think they were all really beautiful, but I was kind of rooting for another name."

Kendall has apparently since changed her view on Psalm as a name and Kim told Kelly and Ryan: "She loves the name."

Addressing Kendall's revelation on Fallon, Kim took a little swipe at her sister, saying: "I was like, ‘Excuse me, first of all, say it to me first.'”

Psalm was born on May 10 and joins Kim and Kanye's other children, daughters Chicago, 19 months, and North, six, as well as son Saint, three.
