Kylie Jenner's son's name has significant meaning – and the NSFW interpretation won't be an issue, expert reveals | The Sun

KYLIE Jenner's son's name has multiple levels of meaning — but an expert says the NSFW one probably won't pose a problem.

On Saturday, the makeup mogul finally revealed that her nearly-one-year-old son is named Aire, a "spiritual" choice with a multifaceted significance, according to Nameberry editor-in-chief Sophie Kihm.


Though there has been some speculation about the origins of Kylie and Travis' son's name from languages like Hebrew and Greek, Kihm tells The U.S. Sun it's simpler than that.

"The meaning of Kylie’s Aire is simply 'air,'" Kihm says.

"She is using it as a word name — albeit, with a poetic, more 'name-like' spelling — which gives the name its meaning.

"There’s a lot of significance behind the name Aire," she adds.

"It’s a nature name, yes — and Kylie loves those, think Stormi, Wolf, and Rose, one of her other favorite names — but it’s a meaningful choice with her son’s birthday.

"Aire is an Aquarius, an air sign, and he was born on 2/2/22 — considered angel numbers.

"Aire is a literally heavenly name, connecting to his angelic birthday."

It's certainly more "spiritually significant" than Wolf, the original name Kylie picked for her son.

"It is also more gender-neutral than Wolf, which is currently exclusively used for boys," she adds.

It's rarer, too: In 2021, Wolf was used for 105 baby boys (along with 39 named Wolfe), and fewer than five babies of either sex were named Aire that same year.

Another point in Aire's favor is that the moniker fits right in with Kylie's daughter's name.

"Stormi and Aire are both meteorological names, so Kylie has created a clear theme with these sibling names," Kihm says.

"They work well together — each name stands on its own yet is a part of a set, and they’re both uncommon nature names with modified spellings."

Of course, there's also another meaning — as social media users have pointed out, "Aire" sounds identical to "ayr," a slang word in Arabic for a certain male body part.

But Kihm says it's quite difficult to research every possible meaning of a name in every other language, so she doesn't fault Kylie and Travis for this — and doesn't see it being a real problem.

"If there is a common secondary or tertiary language in your area, then absolutely do your due diligence and ask around," she says.

"But by and large, a name with an inappropriate meaning in a language that your child is not regularly exposed to won’t be an issue."

Same goes for Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, who named their newborn daughter Esti — which means "star" but is also a profanity among the Quebec French.

In fact, Kihm thinks Kylie will likely set a trend with her name choice.

"The Kardashian-Jenners are experts at popularizing unusual names — Saint, Dream, and Stormi rose rapidly the years after they were used," she says.

"Aire is unlikely to be an exception.

"Of course, not all Kardashian names have become hits —notably: North and Chicago.

"To do so, a name has to fit current trends, as Aire does. It has a lot going in its favor: Aire is a unisex name and a nature name — two big categories right now.

"It’s also a homophone with Heir, which is already a rising choice. We think Aire and all sound-alike names (Heir as well as literary surname Eyre) will rise in years to come."
