Yosef Yehoshua Folger Bobover Shoiteh Who Gave His Child 9 Names Changes His Child Name to Only 3

"Ehr iz gekimmin tzim seichil"
Yosef Yehoshua Folger, a student of  Bobov in Boro Park, received an aliyah last Shabbas on the eve of his daughter's birth, and when the Gabbai asked the father the name he wished to give his newborn daughter, the Gabbai was surprised to hear the name
"Leah, Hinda, Tsirel, Malka, Attia, Shaina,  Chana, Chava Tzviya" 

But on the Monday after last Shabbos , Folger asked the Gabbai for another aliyeh and in the blessing of "Mei Brachach" changed the name of the baby, so that she currently has "only" 3 names,...
It is not clear what caused the father in the first place to declare the long name.
Some of them claim that he is a "letz" and that this was a joke, and that at some point the father realized that the person who would suffer would be his daughter, so he wisely decided to change her name.
