Kylie Jenner has finally revealed the name of her and Travis Scott’s son after a year. Jenner gave birth to their son in February 2022 and had initially chosen the name, Wolf. Only a month later did she announce that she and Travis were testing out other names, and stated “we just really didn’t feel like it was him” according to People.
She took to Instagram on Saturday, January 21, and posted pictures of her and her son with the caption “AIRE ”. The post generated over 22 million likes and many supportive comments from fans. However, the name also led to confusion as fans did not know if the name was pronounced like “Air” or “Airey.” Jenner cleared this up by commenting “AIR ” under one of kyliesnapchat’s posts on Instagram, while Scott wrote “It’s pronounced “air” like billionaires.”
While this name might seem strange to the average person, celebrity baby names have a trend of being unique. Oftentimes, celebrities guarantee that their children will never find their names on a keychain or magnet. Even in the Kardashian family alone, there are many interesting names including “North,” “Stormi,” “Chicago,” and “Dream.” However, they are definitely not alone. Other celebrity baby names include Apple and Moses (Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin), Atlas and Rome (Shay Mitchell and Matte Babel), Bronx Mowgli, Jagger Snow and Ziggy Blu (Ashlee Simpson), and Cricket and Birdie (Busy Philipps and Marc Silverstein).
Could this trend lead to the public adopting these unique names for their children? A list from USA Today reveals potential popular names in 2023. These include Wednesday, Atlas, Ilonka, Leia, and Alix. If this is true, what other letters, nouns, or animals could be used next?
