A number of social media users reacted to Kylie Jenner’s Saturday announcement of her son’s name as Aire, which many users pointed out translates to slang for penis in Arabic.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians beauty, 25, welcomed her second child with rapper Travis Scott, 31, on February 2, as they are also parents to daughter Stormi, four.
The Los Angeles-born makeup mogul showed off images of her son with the caption ‘AIRE.’
The reveal drew a number of reactions, as journalist Antoinette Lattouf tweeted, ‘Umm should someone tell Kylie Jenner she renamed her son Aire which is a common Arabic expression for “my penis” or nah? Anyway, I doubt many people have noticed. After all, Arabic is only spoken by around 415 million people.’
A user said in response to Lattouf: ‘Let her be. I’m waiting for the episode where one of her sisters says “little Aire is getting so big.'”
Others responded to the reveal with memes, one-liners and GIFs, with one person saying, ‘I’m sorry but these jokes on Kylie Jenner naming her son Aire will never get old. Anyone who disagrees is a d*** (see what I did there).’
One user, noting how the Kylie Cosmetics entrepreneur and Scott previously had named the child Wolf, said, ‘That poor kid is going to be renamed again.’

Jenner previously addressed the change of name last September appearing on The Late Late Show with James Corden.
‘We didn’t really have a name, I just thought it was going to come to us when we saw him and it didn’t,’ the Life of Kylie personality previously said. ‘Twenty-four hours before we had to sign the birth certificate, or else they just register him without a name and he doesn’t get a social security number.
‘So I felt the pressure to choose a name, and then Khloe said, the day before we sign, “What about Wolf?”‘
She continued, ‘I like the WW, so we just put Wolf Webster in that moment. Right after I signed the birth certificate, I was like, “What did I just do?” It’s a part of his story but his name has changed.’
