On the season two finale of Hulu’s The Kardashians, Kylie Jenner offered fans a little more information about the name of her baby boy, who was born in February of this year and has already undergone a transformation. The 25-year-old Kylie Cosmetics founder and her boyfriend Travis Scott announced he was being called “Wolf” before retracting the name, saying it didn’t really suit him.
They have since hinted at finding a new name after trying a lot, but haven’t revealed what it is. Instead, Jenner said in the episode that his birth certificate still has the original name Wolf on it.
“My baby’s name is still Wolf. I’ll let you know when I change it,” she told the camera. “Maybe I’ll tell you in season 3.”
In a September episode, Jenner said they felt pressured to pick a name upon her son’s birth, even though they hadn’t prepared one.
“We really didn’t have a name [going in]” she said. “We thought it would come to us when we saw him, and it didn’t.”
She felt overwhelmed when it came time to “sign the birth certificate,” because without some form of identification, he would be registered “without a name or social security number.”
Beyond her name, Jenner has kept her son’s face very private, though her daughter Stormi Webster makes frequent appearances on her social media pages. She told James Corden a few months ago that the baby has not been named after another animal.

“His name is still Wolf, his passport is Wolf, but it’s not going to be his name,” she explained to the Late Night host. “We just wait and simmer. We don’t call him Wolf.”
