Kim Kardashian baby name rumors have reached a fever pitch, just one day after the reality star announced that she and her husband, Kanye West, welcomed their third child, a daughter, via surrogate.
“We are incredibly grateful to our surrogate who made our dreams come true with the greatest gift one could give and to our wonderful doctors and nurses for their special care. North and Saint are especially thrilled to welcome their baby sister,” read Kardashian’s baby announcement.
On Wednesday evening, Kardashian posted a picture of a brown and rose gold Louis Vuitton monogram pattern, and social media users instantly started freaking out, many wondering if Kardashian was offering them a clue about what she and West decided to name their newborn baby girl.
You can check out Kardashian’s post below.
Within minutes of the photo being uploaded, hundreds of comments — many with baby name guesses — were posted on Kardashian’s account. While many people are wondering if the baby’s name is “Louie,” others were quick to suggest different, more feminine options. Some of the most popular guesses include Paris, Elle, Louise, Rose Gold, Love, and LV.
There is even more speculation surrounding the meaning of this post thanks to a previous upload on Kardashian’s account. About a week ago, she shared a picture of her LV monogrammed trash cans.
Before Kardashian uploaded her most recent Instagram post, social media users had been speculating that Kardashian and West would choose a name that honored West’s late mother, Donda.
Kardashian and West put quite a bit of thought into the names they’ve chosen for their children. Their first born, daughter North, was given her name because the name means “highest power.” At the time, a source told E! News that Kardashian and West chose the name because “[her birth was] their highest point together.”
The couple chose the name “Saint” for their son, who was born on December 5, 2015.
“Our insider shared that Saint was picked since it’s akin to saying he is ‘a blessing,’ especially ‘because she had such a difficult pregnancy,'” E! News reported.
Interestingly, a source told People Magazine that Kardashian and West hadn’t yet decided on a name — at least not as of earlier today.
“They still don’t have a name. They’ve been thinking about it for months and they want to make sure it’s right,” the source said. “They will get there eventually.”
West seemed to validate this information when the paparazzi caught up with him in Los Angeles earlier today.
“Can’t think of a name,” West told the paps. Whether or not he was serious remains to be seen. It is also entirely possible that the couple has since agreed on a moniker for their newest addition — and that the Louis Vuitton monogram post was a major hint.
Kardashian and West have not yet shared a photo of their newborn daughter. Kardashian has been active on social media over the past 24 hours, however, hitting the gym while her newborn was asleep and, of course, posting the Louis Vuitton pattern that people can’t seem to stop thinking about.
