How to change a baby’s name in Sims 4

Sadly, you can’t rename a baby in Sims 4. Baby Sims are not customidable. So, you’ll have to wait until the baby becomes a toddler to rename it.

Let’s imagine a situation where your Sim gives birth to twins. You see that the game asks you to give a name to a child twice, and you think that it is a bug of some sort. As a result, you give the same name to both twins, and then realise what happened. So, now you want to rename one of them but can’t figure out how.
