Kylie Jenner has revealed the name of the new baby boy that she made with Travis Scott, and contrary to all the clues that appeared to be dropping around their baby’s name, she didn’t name him Angel. According to an Instagram Story posted by Kylie earlier today, her second child is named Wolf Webster.
Kylie announced earlier this week that she had given birth on 2/2/22 to a little baby boy, four years and one day after Kylie gave birth to her and Travis’ first kid, Stormi Webster. I have no insight into Kylie and Travis’ baby naming process, but the only thing cohesive with big sister Stormi is that this child also doesn’t have a middle name. Webster is Travis Scott’s last name (his full name is Jacques Berman Webster II), so that clears that up. As for Wolf, well…anyone’s guess. Maybe Kylie borrowed a 2-page baby name book from Eve, who borrowed hers from Lauren Conrad, who borrowed hers from Zooey Deschanel, who swiped hers from Lisa Bonet, who checked hers out of the same library frequented by every famous person who has named their kid some variation on the word “Wolf.”
Kylie and Travis also managed to go polar opposite with their two kids’ names. On the one hand, you have Stormi, guaranteeing her a future where she’ll never have to use her last name initially to tell her apart from all the other Stormi’s on the elementary school roll call. Then there’s Wolf, which also isn’t as common as Kevin or Phillip, but it is the 218th most popular boy name in the US in 2022, and it continues to rise in popularity.
The internet has already begun dunking on the name Kylie and Travis chose to write on that birth certificate. Plenty of people have pointed out that it makes Kylie seem like the world’s biggest Team Jacob fan from Twilight, or that she just outed herself as a secret X-Men nerd. Others have noted the juxtaposition between Kylie naming her dog Norman and her son Wolf. Generally, not a whole lot of people are feeling it. And to those people, I’d mention that I wouldn’t give half a care if my name was Wolf Eagle Snake Bite Snapping Turtle if half my DNA was connected to a billionaire.

But I will join in and say that to me, Wolf Webster sounds like the title of a very special Halloween episode of Webster where Webster accidentally gets scratched by a Siberian husky puppy being watched by Mr. Papadopolis and convinces himself he’s turned into a werewolf. A little niche, yes, but sure to be a hit in the month of October.
