Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott still aren’t ready to reveal their son’s name, but they’re getting closer. After welcoming their second child on Feb. 2, Jenner was quick to clarify her plans to change her baby boy’s original name: Wolf Jacques Webster. “His name is still Wolf. His passport’s Wolf, but that isn’t gonna be his name,” she explained during a Sept. 8 appearance on “The Late Late Show With James Corden.” “We’re just waiting. . . . We don’t call him Wolf.”
Though it’s evident Jenner and Scott have chosen another name for their son since his birth, it still remains a mystery to the public. Read ahead for everything we do know about the couple’s baby boy.
What Is Kylie Jenner’s Son’s New Name?
When Corden asked Jenner where she is in the process of changing her son’s name, she responded, “We haven’t officially legally changed the name.” The talk-show host then asked what she calls her son. She said coyly, “We’re just not ready to share yet. We’re not officially going to change it until maybe . . .” before trailing off. However, Jenner did confirm she and Scott have (mostly) landed on a name – and it’s not an animal this time.
Following up on her statement in the Sept. 29 episode of “The Kardashians,” Jenner admitted, “We really didn’t have a name [when he was born]. I just thought it was gonna come to us when we saw him. And it didn’t.” When it came down to signing their son’s birth certificate, Jenner and Scott were forced to make a snap decision. “We had to sign the birth certificate – or else they register him without a name or Social Security number – so I felt the pressure to choose a name.”
After Khloé Kardashian suggested the name Wolf, Jenner decided to roll with it, but she immediately regretted her decision. “We put Wolf Webster in that moment, and right after I signed the birth certificate, I was like, ‘What did I just do?'” she said. “Travis actually still changes his name a few times. He’ll come back and be like, ‘I really like this name.’ And then, for the day, he’ll call him that. And I’m like, ‘We can’t do this again.'”
When Did Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott Change Their Son’s Name?
The couple first sparked confusion about their son’s name on March 21, six weeks after they welcomed him. “FYI our sons name isn’t Wolf anymore,” Jenner told fans on her Instagram Stories just hours after sharing photos of the baby’s new nursery and custom Chrome Hearts stroller. “We just really didn’t feel like it was him. Just wanted to share because I keep seeing Wolf everywhere.”

Jenner’s sister Kim Kardashian shared an update on her nephew’s name during an April 15 appearance on “Live With Kelly and Ryan.” “There’s one name, I think, lingering, but she really wants to make sure,” Kardashian said. “It’s such a really big decision, honestly. It’s the hardest thing ever in life: to name a child.”
During the season two finale of “The Kardashians,” which aired on Nov. 24, Jenner doubles down on changing her son’s name. It’s unclear when the episode was filmed, but she says, “My baby’s name is still Wolf.” “I’ll let you guys know when I change it,” she adds. “Maybe I’ll tell you guys in season three.”
What Are the Fan Theories Over Kylie Jenner’s Son’s Name?
On Feb. 2, Jenner shared a black and white photo of big sister Stormi Webster holding her new baby brother’s hand alongside the caption “2/2/22.” A few days later, on Feb. 11, the mom of two said her new son’s name was Wolf, putting many fan theories about the baby’s moniker to rest at the time. The frontrunner among fan chats was Angel, a name that emerged after Kris Jenner commented “Angel Pie” on the baby’s photo and Kim added an angel emoji next to a blue heart.
The Kardashian-Jenners definitely like to get creative when it comes to picking baby names, so there’s no telling what the newborn will be known as now. Could it be Travis Jr.? Snowy to complement Stormi, as some fans guessed via TikTok following a season two episode of “The Kardashians” where True Thompson guesses her new cousin’s name? The possibilities are endless.
