Question: Tiger Woods' Son is Charlie Axel Woods
Tiger Woods and his former wife Elin Nordegren had two children today. One is a son. Here is some info on Tiger Woods' son. What is his name and birth date? Why is his middle name Axel?
Answer: Tiger Woods' son, the second child of Woods and his ex-wife Elin Nordegren, was born on Feb. 8, 2009. His name is Charlie Axel Woods.

Note that "Charlie" is not a nickname; it's not what they call him rather than "Charles." Charlie's given name is not Charles. It's Charlie, pure and simple.

His middle name, as already noted, is Axel. Tiger Woods' daughter's middle name is Alexis, so the parents stuck with a theme for their children's middle names. Why Axel? Charlie's uncle - Elin's brother - is named Axel.

Charlie Axel Woods splits time between his parents, who agreed as part of their divorce settlement to joint custody.

For another baby photo, see baby Charlie in a family photo released shortly after his birth.
