Fans Finally Figured Out The Complex Reason Kylie Jenner Named Her Daughter Stormi

Last week, Kylie Jenner announced to the world that the rumors were true–she had been pregnant for the last nine months. Although fans “knew” the truth, they didn’t actually know she had given birth on February 1st, 2018.

The 20-year-old mother let fans have a true inside look of her pregnancy and her life she had kept hidden from the world through a YouTube video she dedicated to her daughter. The video has been viewed over 53 million times.

Kylie also used her Instagram account to share the name of her daughter, Stormi Webster. Her boyfriend Travis Scott’s real name is Jacques Webster, and, although the two are not engaged Kylie decided to have her daughter take her father’s last name.

Fans were confused and curious as to why Kylie chose the name Stormi and frankly, so were we. Although we usually don’t know the true reason why celebrities name their kids what they do, some fans online feel as though they’ve discovered the real reason behind the name “Stormi.”

Many fans, at first, thought Kylie named her daughter “butterfly.” Travis Scott released his song “Butterfly Effect,” in May, the month Kylie Jenner got pregnant. A month later, the two got matching butterfly tattoos.

Throughout her pregnancy and in her pregnancy video, Kylie dropped a lot of butterfly hints.

And, while Stormi isn’t exactly “butterfly,” fans have linked the name to butterflies in a crazy twist of knowledge and Googling.

The dictionary defines “butterfly effect” as: “a cumulatively large effect that a very small natural force may produce over a period of time. The first recorded butterfly effect was in 1980-85; so called from the notion that the fluttering of a butterfly’s wings may set off currents that will grow into a large storm.”

Fans were blown away by this discovery.
