Kylie Jenner took to Instagram on Tuesday to at last reveal that Stormi is the name of her first child with Travis Scott, putting an end to days of fans’ guesswork. Jenner, 20, gave birth to a baby girl on Feb. 1.
She revealed the birth via Instagram on Feb. 4 after months of speculation—and even demands of an announcement—from fans that she was pregnant. In another post, Jenner shared an 11-minute video called “To Our Daughter” from her and Scott that shows intimate moments leading up to Stormi’s birth.

After Jenner revealed her baby’s name, the internet—ahem—stormed in with jokes. Many of them were weather-related puns on the new kids’ names in the Kardashian/Jenner clan.

Some fans were bewildered because many had theorized Jenner would be naming her baby Mariposa (Posie for short!) or something else butterfly related. Many thought Jenner was hinting at the name with clues in her pregnancy video, like shots of her butterfly necklace and nursery decorations.
“Kylie is most definitely going to name her child Mariposa”
