I knew all those butterflies meant something.
Earlier this week, Kylie Jenner announced the arrival of her baby girl.
And the following day, Kylie revealed that she’d named her daughter Stormi.
Because butterflies were featured in the video that Kylie released announcing Stormi’s arrival. First there was this necklace, sitting beneath another chain bearing the words, “Baby Girl.”
And then during a tour of the baby’s nursery, a wall of butterflies was revealed.
And since Stormi’s arrival, Kylie has shared further butterfly details. First there was this floral arrangement, spelling out her name in front of a wall full of framed butterfly prints.

And then this floral arrangement shaped like a butterfly.
Then there was the fact that, back in November, Kylie posted this photo on Instagram alongside a caption referencing a photoshoot.
At the time, people speculated that the shoot was going to be a gender reveal. Whether or not this was true, we'll never know.
Scott also has a song song titled “The Butterfly Effect.”
The song was released in May last year — the month Kylie got pregnant.
Which leads us nicely to this new theory that fans have come up with, connecting the name Stormi to the reoccurring theme of butterflies.
People have linked the name to the butterfly effect — a theory that suggests that one tiny occurrence can drastically change the outcome of an event.
The term itself is derived from the example of a tornado being caused by something as minor as the flapping of a butterfly’s wings several weeks earlier.
And what’s another word for tornado? That’s right. Storm.
And you know what? If this theory is accurate, it’s actually kind of genius. Well played, Kylie.
