The Internet's Theory About Why Kylie's Baby Is Named "Stormi Webster" Is Actually Kind Of Genius

Lowkey, this is the only Kylie name theory I believe.
Stormi Webster is now a week old and the internet is STILL speculating on what her name really means. Kylie Jenner's first child arrived amid a flurry of secrecy and apparent butterfly-related baby name clues. Would it be named Butterfly? Papillon? Monarch?
Now that we know the future billionaire's name, people are still drawing clever butterfly connections.
It's pretty common knowledge that Travis Scott, real name Jacques Webster II, is a fan of butterflies. Last year, around the time he likely found out about Kylie's pregnancy, he released a song called "Butterfly Effect".
He has also gifted Kylie butterfly jewelry and the pair have matching butterfly tattoos.
Fast forward to February 4, 2018, when the two announced the Feb 1 birth of their child and shared an announcement video that chronicled Kylie's pregnancy. Even MORE butterfly clues.
Thankfully, they did not name their child after an insect and, instead, chose a name some fans still believe is connected to the butterfly motif.
So, how are Stormi and Butterfly connected?
Everyone sayin Kylie’s baby gonna be called butterfly cos of all the butterfly tats and decor etc but she’s called Stormi but chaos theory says a butterfly flaps its wings and causes a storm aka the butterfly effect aka the song released by travis Scott 9 months ago BOOM— adeline (@a_rxsnbrg) February 6, 2018
“Stormi” is short for Storm. A storm can be caused by a minute localized change in a complex system. That’s known as the butterfly effect. Butterfly in Spanish is Mariposa...— Damita Joe (@JoS_A_Skank) February 6, 2018
This theory actually...makes a lot of sense. If I were a first time mother, I wouldn't be too sure about naming my kid after an insect either.
Based on Travis' song, Butterfly Effect, we know they're at least aware of the "butterfly flapping its wings and creating a storm" theory.
There are probably a ton of layers to this kid's name but the "butterfly effect storm" theory probably makes the most sense.
