Is This the Real Reason Kylie Jenner Named Her Daughter Stormi?
After revealing her baby girl’s moniker earlier this week, the 20-year-old reality star and Lip Kit mastermind has not expanded on her choice — but others have their theories.
Kylie is notably a fan of butterflies, wearing a sparkly pink diamond butterfly ring for a November photo shoot and getting matching ankle butterfly tattoos with boyfriend Travis Scott. One of the 25-year-old rapper’s most popular tracks, “Butterfly Effect,” also references the insect.
Scott also gave Kylie some butterfly-themed bling for her birthday in August: a gold choker-style necklace featuring five diamond-covered butterflies, as well as two mega-carat diamonds on either side of a large blue butterfly.
Fans all over social media have made the connection between the butterfly effect and Stormi’s name, pointing out chaos theory in the idea that a butterfly flapping its wings can create a storm somewhere far away.

Fans were buzzing about a possibility of the new addition‘s name after her birth was announced, noticing how Kris Jenner shared a photo of Kylie’s new seasonal beauty product the day after her daughter was born. The name of the limited-edition product? Posie K.
Individuals were quick to point out “Posie” could be short for Mariposa — a word used often as a name that is Spanish for “butterfly” — while K could point to either a middle initial or be a nod to Kylie’s Kardashian sisters.
