Why Stormi? Expert weighs in on Kylie Jenner's retro baby name.

What’s in a name? Twitter has been buzzing ever since Kylie Jenner announced her baby girl’s name: Stormi.

Stormi is the first child for Jenner, 20, and her boyfriend, rapper Travis Scott (legal name: Jacques Webster). It’s unclear what Stormi’s full name is, but regardless, people have a lot of feelings about it.

Yahoo Entertainment contacted an expert who weighed in on the “surprisingly retro name choice.”

“Stormi peaked in popularity before Kylie Jenner was even born,” Laura Wattenberg, author of The Baby Name Wizard, explains.” The name Stormy, in all its spellings, first became popular in the same ’60s-’70s wave as names like Misty, Sunny, and Holly. Stormy, in particular, took off after the 1968 hit song ‘Stormy.’”
