She might not be named Mariposa, but fans are convinced Kylie Jenner did, in fact, name her baby girl Stormi after butterflies. In a theory that is going viral on social media, fans are explaining why Kylie's inspiration was obviously the winged insect.
"'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…" @JoSASkank wrote on Twitter, referring to the chaos theory. Another user agreed, adding, "Theory… Kylie named her baby Stormi because of the butterfly effect… the beat of a butterfly’s wings can set off a storm miles away."

A third chimed in, "Stormi. Butterfly effect. The flap of a butterfly can ’cause’ a hurricane, Ky and Travis are the butterfly, they flapped their wings and now Stormi is the hurricane. U [sic] welcome." As one follower responded, "This some Da Vinci code s–t."
Butterflies have been symbolic of Kylie and Travis Scott's relationship since the couple started dating last year. From their matching couple tattoos to the huge butterfly necklace the KUWTK star wore in her touching birth announcement video — a gift from the "Butterfly Effect" rapper — it was easy to believe their choice of a baby name would be influenced by the beautiful critter.
It didn't help that Stormi's nursery was also decorated with butterflies — and family and friends flooded Kylie's home with floral arrangements in the shape of, you guessed it, butterflies. Whatever the inspiration, we are just glad Kylie has seemingly gotten over her fear of butterflies. In an episode of Life of Kylie, Kylie revealed to her BFF Jordyn Woods that she is in fact scared of non-emoji butterflies. "Butterflies are just part of the secrets of Kylie," she said. "It's kind of just ironic because I'm terrified, terrified of butterflies. All butterflies. This is how I think of them: cut the wings off and if you just look at their bodies, they're not that pretty. It's literally a bug." TBH, we're just glad she didn't name her daughter Mariposa.
