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?

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.

What do you guys think? Does this theory check out? Do we think Stormi Webster is named after the butterfly effect?
