The child, who was given the moniker Wolf by American rapper and reality television star Travis Scott, is now known as Aire.
When Kylie, 25, announced his name on Instagram, her admirers flooded her with comments, some of which suggested that his name had a somewhat crude connotation.
Next to her announcement, one of her 378 million Instagram followers wrote: “I hope you did research earlier. His name translates to “penis” in various Arab nations.”
Others also took notice and wrote: “God help her if she comes to the Middle East.”
Another fan of Kylie tweeted: “Aire in Arabic is pronounced as ayre aka d**k…poor Kylie.” There were many remarks about his name on Twitter.
According to a familial source, the name’s meaning is “Lion of God.”
The reality star, who rose to popularity as part of the Kardashian family, and her well-known siblings have faced criticism in the past for their choice of baby names.
While Robert Kardashian’s daughter Dream was born in 2016, Khloe Kardashian, 38, welcomed her daughter True in 2018.
Kim Kardashian and rapper Kanye West have four kids together: North, nine; Saint, seven; Chicago, five; and Psalm, three.
While reality television star Scott Disick is the father of Kourtney Kardashian’s children Mason Dash, Penelope Scotland, and Reign Aston.
When Kylie gave birth to Aire in February of last year, she admitted that Wolf did not fit him well and that she should change his name.
She stated that they had changed his name soon after his birth, adding, “We just didn’t really feel like it was him.”
