Aire meaning: What does Kylie Jenner's son name mean? | The Sun

A NUMBER of social media users reacted with shock to the translation of Kylie Jenner's 11-month old son's new name.

The businesswoman and her former partner – rapper Travis Scott – originally decided on Wolf as a name but subsequently switched – deciding it didn't suit the 11-month-old's personality.


What does Aire mean?

Many observers across social media reacted with humour and horror at the translation of Jenner's son's name. While Aire means 'Lion of God' in Hebrew, its Arabic translation is slang for 'my penis'.

Journalist Antionette Lattouf took to Twitter and quipped: "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."

How did Kylie Jenner announce her son's name?

In true Kardashian style, Kylie announced the name of their new-born baby son – whom they initially named Wolf – in an Instagram story less than a week after she shared the news of his birth.

How do you pronounce Aire?

The mystery of how to pronounce the name was solved solved by the woman who named Aire herself.

Responding to fan account 'kyliesnapchat', Jenner responded to the post 'Do you think it's pronounced air or airey?'

Chiming in and confirming the former, the media personality commented: "Air" followed by a red heart emoji.

What have fans said about the name?

Despite ripples of positivity, the lion's share of retorts have been mocking.
