Trisha Paytas has revealed her second child’s name and some are urging her to change it. 

Paytas, 36, rose to fame thanks to her YouTube channel blndsundoll4mj – it became a platform for her life and thoughts.

She’s also ventured into music, TV and film, as well as appearing in several videos for artists such as Eminem and Amy Winehouse.

But arguably, Paytas is best known for controversies.

Over the years, the YouTuber has been involved in numerous public feuds with other internet personalities, among other dramas.

Yet in recent years, Paytas’ life has taken a new turn – she’s settled down and welcomed two adorable daughters.

And now, she’s making the headlines for her second child’s name…

People were shocked when Paytas welcomed her first daughter in 2022 and named her Malibu Barbie.

At a later date, in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the internet personality said her little girl has grown into the persona.

She revealed: “She’s like a little girl, so I just get to dress her up! Like, I was excited to have a boy or a girl, but now that she’s a girl I just, like, dress her like a mini-me.

“She’s so much fun… she’s very Malibu Barbie.”

Now Paytas and her husband, Moses Hacmon, have welcomed their second daughter – their name choice has once again made headlines.

One person pens: “This poor child’s gonna get picked on so bad for that name. I never understood why some people purposely do that to a child.”

Another adds: “What an awful name for a child. Whatever happened to just calling your child Emily or Jessica?”

“Please stop naming your children this stuff,” a third comments.

Someone else writes: “You know that baby is changing her name when she is old enough.”

“I can’t believe it, that’s so cruel,” a fifth person remarks.

While some fans have criticised Paytas’ baby name choices, others have taken to the comments and congratulated the star.

One person says: “Elvis is in the building!”

Another adds: “She just loves Elvis, and wanted it no matter the gender. Very cute, I think.”

“She’s fabulous like her mom,” a third fan writes.

Paytas revealed in November 2023 that she was pregnant with her second child, sharing photos in which she held a series of ultrasound images.

She welcomed her daughter on May 24 and announced the news on June 4.

“Proud to announce the safe and happy arrival of our precious daughter, Elvis Paytas-Hacmon, 05.24.24,” Paytas told her Instagram followers.

In addition to photos of the YouTuber and her husband with the newborn, she shared snaps of their eldest meeting her baby sister.

Paytas previously revealed on her podcast Just Trish that she had ‘manifested’ calling her baby Elvis.

“I love all names, I think they’re so cute, but I’ve always manifested Malibu and Elvis,” she said (via New York Post). “It’s always been [one of the] names I’ve said, so that’s it.”

She added: “Elvis could be a masculine name, but we’d also give it to a girl.”
