Simply saying ‘we just really didn’t feel like it was him’, Kylie explained the last-minute name change on Instagram and is yet to share the baby’s new name with fans.
According to Kylie’s dad, Caitlyn Jenner, the A-listers have already decided on a new name for their bundle of joy, as she told ET that she thinks the name is ‘very good’, while adding that her daughter isn’t ready to announce it just yet.
However, the reason for this may be due to the long process of legally changing a name, according to TMZ.
The publication reported that the process can take weeks, if not months to complete from start to finish.
Firstly, Kylie and Travis are required to file a petition for a name change, which then needs to be approved by a judge.
Once this is approved, it’s sent to be processed by the state, which takes a further 6-8 weeks.
The state will then amend the birth certificate to reflect the baby’s new name - so it’s likely Kylie wants the legal changes to take place before announcing it to the world.
This was the case when Kylie’s former brother-in-law Kanye West legally changed his name last year to Ye, which took almost two months.
