AceShowbiz - Internet trolls were in stitches after finding out what Kylie Jenner's son's name means in Arabic. After "The Kardashians" star revealed that her and Travis Scott (II)'s son's name is Aire, fans took to social media to point out that the name has NSFW meaning in that language.
On Sunday, January 22, a Twitter user shared that "Aire" is a "common" slang word for "my penis." After catching wind of the information, fans quickly clowned Kylie for the name choice for her son, who was initially named Wolf.
"God help her if she comes to the Middle East," one user said. Someone else added, "all my Lebanese people [are] wheezing right now."
Another person joked, "Let her be. I'm waiting for the episode where one of her sisters says 'little Aire is getting so big.' " One other commented, "She should've just stuck with Wolf. Wasn't that the original name? I'd also like to inform everyone who clinks glasses and says 'chin chin' that it means penis in Japanese."
However, some other fans defended Kylie and didn't think she should be worried what her son's name means in a language that she isn't familiar with. "Word has a different meaning in another language that a mother doesn't speak... Shocking. I speak another language, I wouldn't be a d**k if this happened with a Welsh word. I am not a Kardashian fan but this whole thread is s**tty," one person said.
Firing back at the initial Twitter user, whose name is Antoinette Lattouf, one other fan wrote, "Dear Antoinette, has someone told you that your last name means 'the c**t' in French, and that 'aire' means 'area or aerie' or nah? French is only spoken by 300 million people. #kyliejenner And, btw, Marie Antoinette has been guillotined. A French treat."
Kylie finally revealed the face and the name of her son on Saturday, January 21. The Kylie Cosmetics founder treated fans to a mirror selfie that showed her cradling her son and some cute photos of the baby. In the caption, she simply wrote, "AIRE," adding a white heart emoji.
Shortly after making the announcement, the reality TV star clarified how to correctly pronounce her son's name. In response to a fan account's post that read, "Do you think it's pronounced air or airey?" the 25-year-old makeup mogul commented, "AIR [heart emoji]."
