Another explanation:

Boys names are often not known by anyone but their parents and not mentioned until they've been circumcised. An important part of that ceremony is the announcement (my translation)  "And his name in the People in Israel shall henceforth be ---- "

The 22nd is seven days, after the 15th i.e. the day of his Bris - the day he received his name, and it was in public.    So yes, it could the day his birth (name included) was reported - or registered and not the day on which the infant was born.
