Saif Ali Khan Had THIS Name In Mind Before Kareena Kapoor Khan Chose To Name Their First Son Taimur
This morning, Kareena Kapoor Khan and her hubby Saif Ali Khan welcomed their second child together, and congratulatory messages started pouring in for the couple. Alia Bhatt, Dia Mirza, Natasha Poonawalla, Neetu Kapoor, Riddhima Kapoor Sahni, and many others took to their social media to send best wishes to Saif and Kareena. Now, there’s a lot of curiosity among fans as to what Kareena and Saif will name this newborn baby. Back in 2016, Kareena and Saif’s first son Taimur’s name had ignited debate, and many criticized the couple, claiming that the name was inspired by Turkish invader, Timur.

However, while Kareena Kapoor Khan chose to name her first son Taimur, did you know Saif Ali Khan had another name in mind for him? In 2018, Kareena Kapoor Khan had opened up about the controversy around Taimur’s name. While speaking at the India Today conclave, she had said that the night before she was going to the hospital Saif had asked her if she was sure about naming their son Taimur. He also suggested that they could name him Faiz, as it was more poetic and romantic. However, Kareena stood firm that if it is a boy, she wants her son to be a fighter, and Taimur means ‘iron’, which was exactly what Kareena wanted to name him.

“There was a lot of trolling, but there was also an immense amount of support. Not that the trolls mattered, because the night before I was going to the hospital, Saif asked me, 'If it's a boy, are you sure you want to do this? Let's change the name and call him Faiz. It's more poetic and romantic.' And I was like, no. If it's a boy, I want my son to be a fighter. Taimur means 'iron' and I will produce Iron Man. I am proud to name him Taimur,” Kareena had said.
Meanwhile, with her second baby, Kareena Kapoor Khan had revealed while speaking to Neha Dhupia on What Women Want, that she and Saif haven’t decided on the baby’s name beforehand. “After the whole controversy of Taimur, both Saif and me have not even thought about it. We’re like going to leave it last minute and then spring a surprise,” she said.
