“stormi 👼🏽,” the 20-year-old Life of Kylie star wrote on Tuesday, February 6, via Instagram, just days after she revealed she gave birth to a baby girl, who weighed 8 lbs 9 oz., on Thursday, February 1.
As previously reported, Jenner confirmed she was expecting and announced her daughter’s arrival on Sunday, February 4, via Instagram, after months of speculation:“I’m sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions. I understand you’re used to me bringing you along on all my journeys … My beautiful and healthy baby girl arrived February 1st and i just couldn’t wait to share this blessing. I’ve never felt love and happiness like this i could burst!”
Fans were quick to joke about how the name fit into the Kardashian family:
“Kylie Jenner’s daughter being called Stormi is just going to make Christmas Day at Kris Jenner’s seem like a weather forecast. ‘North! Chicago! Stormi!’” one fan wrote.
Another user joked, “Somebody just said: It will be Stormi with the chance of Reign in the North of Chicago. I said: wait what They replied with: it was a Dream.”

“are the kardashians actually creating a weather forecast of kids ‘it’s going to be stormi, with a chance of rain, in the north of chicago,” a user wrote.
“so in the Kardashian’s family there’s a reign and a stormi, so Khloe better name her kid cloudie or lightning,” a fan tweeted.
Multiple Twitter users also tried to make a connection to Stormy Daniels, the porn star who recently alleged she had an affair with Donald Trump:
“so who’s going to tell kylie jenner about stormy daniels,” a fan wrote.
“Stormy Daniels: I’m the world’s most popular Stormy! Stormi Jenner: Hold my bottle,” one user tweeted.
“So Kylie Jenner named her baby after Trump’s porn star mistress – Stormi?” another user wrote.
Other social media users were surprised that Jenner did not name her daughter Butterfly, Mariposa or Monarch because of a popular fan theory:
“Everyone was so certain Kylie’s baby was gonna he called Butterfly but she threw a massive curveball and named her Stormi,” one user wrote.
