  • Naming a baby is undoubtedly an exciting experience for moms and dads to be. But more than that, it's also a huge decision to make for parents since a person's name will be part of his identity forever. Well, technically, no, not forever, as Kylie Jenner demonstrated it.

    Kylie welcomed her baby boy last February, on the believed to be an auspicious date of 2/2/22. The little one who was first introduced as baby Wolf is her second child with partner Travis Scott.

    But after a month since giving birth, the 24-year-old billionaire took to her Instagram story to make a major update about her baby.

    "FYI our sons [sic] name isn't Wolf anymore." Offering a brief explanation on the name change, Kylie says, "We just really didn't feel like it was him. Just wanted to share because I keep seeing Wolf everywhere."

    The beauty and makeup mogul has yet to reveal the new name of their baby. But she has released a Youtube video to give a glimpse of her second pregnancy.


    It could be remembered that Kylie also dedicated the similar special video when she gave birth to her firstborn child, Stormi.

    In the video entitled "To Our Son," the mom of two shared memorable moments from the time she first told her partner she's pregnant, her first sonogram, to some behind the scenes from her maternity shoot.

    It was also revealed in the video that Kylie's baby no. 2 had the same due date as Stormi's birthday, which is on February 1. However, the siblings ended up having succeeding birthdays. As moms would know, due dates are not set in stone.

    Kylie also shared a sneak peek inside her newborn's nursery by the end of the video. Stormi also added her own flair to her baby brother's room by placing an artwork, which we're guessing is her own masterpiece.

    We totally get Kylie. Sometimes, our names precede us and set expectations about our personality. So, it's important to choose something that reflects our identity.

    For parents, a name is not just a set of letters that you write on a piece of paper. It's a symbolic gift they give to their child to celebrate their uniqueness and individuality.

    Can you change your baby's name?

    After careful deliberation of what to name your baby, what if, like Kylie, you felt like you made the wrong choice? 

    In the Philippines, Republic Act No. 9048 permits changing the first name indicated on a person's birth certificate. Under this law, any person can apply for a change or name correction without having to go to court. Instead, they would only need to directly file a petition with the Local or Municipal Civil Registrar.


    This law covers those corrections of clerical or typographical errors or when parents or medical practitioners commit a mistake in the process of recording a baby's name. (Read more here)

    This also applies if a person wants to change his name completely BUT the reason must fall under any of the following grounds:

    1. The petitioner finds the first name or nickname to be ridiculous, tainted with dishonor, or extremely difficult to write or pronounce;

    2. The new first name or nickname has been habitually and continuously used by the petitioner, and he has been publicly known by that first name or nickname in the community; or

    3. The change will avoid confusion.
