Kim Kardashian has been sending her millions of followers and fans into a frenzy over baby names, thanks to her latest Instagram post.
On Wednesday night, the 37-year-old “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” reality star posted an imaged of Louis Vuitton’s iconic print pattern (which features the initials, L.V.) – something many took to be a clue regarding her third child.
Sharing the image on her official page on the App, on the surface Kim appeared to show her appreciation for the luxury French fashion house.
However, many of her 106 million followers seemed to think she was leaving her devotees a clue as to what she’s called her youngest daughter.
Flooding the comments section, fans offered up their thoughts on what name she’s picked for North and Saint’s younger sibling.
“Could this be a hint on the new baby’s name…” wrote one, summing up the general consensus.
Many were convinced it meant that Kim was naming her daughter Elle, due to the L in LV – though other thought it meant they’d picked Love.
Others thought that she may be picking the name Louis, or Vuitton.
It’s something not entirely outside the realms of possibility as her husband has long been a fan of the fashion label: he once designed a sneaker for them, and has even referred to himself as the ‘Louis Vuitton Don’.
However, the name of Kim and Kanye West‘s baby is far from clear, as the couple – who welcomed their third child through surrogacy earlier this month – have kept the name tight-lipped.
Earlier this week, Kanye told a pack of press and photographers in LA that they had yet to even decide on a name.
According to X17 the happy new father said: “Gotta think of a name, you know what I’m saying.”
During the same chat someone asked if he’d be naming the child after his late mother, Donda.
He seemed to like that suggestion, replying: “Oh that’s fire!”
However, if “LV” does prove to be the initials of Kim and Kanye’s youngest daughter, then it could be a tribute to the late Louise Wilson, who helped to tutor and foster Kanye’s artistic streak.
Meeting Louise Wilson at Central Saint Martins art college in London, in 2010/2011, the star quickly became close to the fashion professor, who trained industry icons like Alexander McQueen.
In 2015, following her death the year before, Kanye broke down in tears as he talked to Zayne Lowe about her influence on his life.
“The last time I saw her, we had a dinner at Hakkasan which is my favorite restaurant in London,” he told the then Radio 1 star.
“I think she knew she was going to pass and she just wanted to give me some words of advice going forward.
“She was asking me about my daughter, my wife, and she said, ‘So many students, they don’t give it their all, and the problem is, as soon as they do anything halfway good when they’re two years old, three years old, their parents clap.’
“And she just looked at me and she said, ‘Kanye, don’t clap.’”
