Despite spending nearly 11 months finalizing their almost one-year-old son’s name, it seems alleged climate criminal Kylie Jenner and her former flame, La Flame Travis Scott, may want to reconsider their choice of moniker, inadvertently naming their child something akin to the Lebanese slang word for “penis.”
After months of vagueries and a half-baked The Kardashians plot line, Jenner took to Instagram with a series of adorable snaps of her and her youngest on Saturday, January 21, revealing that the baby formerly known as Wolf is now named Aire.
Yet as soon as she shared the quickly-viral snaps, some of Jenner’s Lebanese fans began flocking to social media, questioning the purportedly phallic nature of her child’s name
“Umm should someone tell Kylie Jenner she renamed her son Aire which is a common Arabic expression for ‘my penis’ or nah?” Australian reporter Antoinette Lattouf mused on Twitter.

“Anyway, I doubt many people have noticed,” she elaborated in a subsequent tweet. “After all, Arabic is only spoken by around 415 million people.”
One of the 415 million Arabic speakers who also noticed this was none other than American-Arab Anti- Discrimination Committee higher-up, Abed A. Ayoub.
“Arabic speakers are having a field day with this,” he quipped on social media.

Apparently she went with Aire.
I hope he doesn’t have any Arab friends when he’s older. https://t.co/aEIHHkEGCe
“The Arabic language is full of beautiful words, many of them are used for names. Apparently, she went with Aire,” he continued, joking that he hoped that Jenner’s youngest “doesn’t have any Arab friends when he’s older.”
