Kim Kardashian West has yet to announce her newborn daughter’s name.
But when the Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality star, 37, shared a cryptic photo of a Louis Vuitton monogram on Wednesday, she had fans guessing that she and husband Kanye West, 40, new daughter’s name was inspired by the fashion house.
Popular guesses included “Elle V West,” “LV West” and “Louis West.”
The stylish couple are big fans of Louis Vuitton as just prior to their baby girl arrived via surrogate on Monday, the KKW Beauty mogul shared photos of trash cans decorated with the Louis Vuitton logo.
In addition, West has been a longtime fan, often making Louis Vuitton references in his music including “Stronger,” “Runaway Love,” “Gold Digger,” “Can’t Tell Me Nothing,” “The Glory” and “Pinocchio Story.”
After all, he is nicknamed the Louis Vuitton Don.
However, Kardashian’s cryptic Instagram is far more likely to be in honor of the label’s artistic director.
On Wednesday, it was announced that Kim Jones, the artistic director of men’s wear at Louis Vuitton, would be stepping down after seven years.
Jones’s Fall 2018 runway show on Thursday will be his last for Louis Vuitton, according to Vogue.

“They still don’t have a name,” an insider previously told PEOPLE. “They’ve been thinking about it for months and they want to make sure it’s right.”

On Jan. 2., the last night of Blaze Bernstein’s life, he was as happy as his parents had ever seen him.
“He had a glow about him,” his mother, Jeanne Pepper Bernstein tells PEOPLE. “He was in a good place. He was really happy. He was shining.”
Blaze was so ebullient because he loved his life as a sophomore at the University of Pennsylvania, where he was planning to study pre-med, she says. While he enjoyed spending time with his family in Lake Forest, California, for winter break, whipping up gourmet meals for his parents and taking part in frequent rounds of Balderdash on the family’s many game nights, “he couldn’t wait to get back,” she says. “He got a new apartment. He had so much to look forward to when he got there.”
Blaze would never make it back to school. Later that night, he met a former classmate from high school – Samuel Woodward, 20, – and never returned home, say police.
Six days after his parents reported him missing, his lifeless body was found on Jan. 9 in a shallow grave at nearby Borrego Park. On Friday, Woodward was arrested on suspicion of homicide. On Wednesday, he was charged with murder and faces a maximum sentence of life in prison if he is convicted.
Blaze’s death has left his family devastated. “We are all sad,” says his mother. “We are all crying. The whole world is crying right now.”
While authorities have not revealed much about why Blaze met Woodward the night of Jan. 2 or what led to the alleged stabbing, a search warrant affidavit obtained by the Orange County Register, which has since been sealed, Woodward alleges that Blaze tried to kiss him and Woodward subsequently away.
Blaze’s parents say they knew their son was gay and accepted that. “We told him we are all God’s children,” his father, Gideon Bernstein tells PEOPLE. “We told him, ‘We love you and want you to have a good life and be happy.’
“His sexual identity was no different than his other identities – being Jewish or male or a poet or a writer or a chef,” he says. “He didn’t want one to be overriding the other. That is what he communicated to us.”
“Everybody knew but he really didn’t like talking about it.”

The Bernsteins remember their son as a “Renaissance man” who loved traveling to far-flung locales including Iceland, Israel, and Italy with his family.
His interests were wide. He loved writing, cooking, and photography. “I bought him this book on interior decorating and he was so excited to have it,” she says.
“He was a scholar in all things,” says Jeanne. “Art, literature, and science.”

She also marveled at watching him grow into a man, she says. “I knew he was becoming an adult when he stopped tattling on (his younger sister) and started to enjoy her,” says Jeanne. “That started to happen about the time he left for college. If he didn’t like something she was doing, he wouldn’t come to me and complain. He would go to her and ask her nicely to stop doing it. It finally clicked with him. He was an adult. He could relate to her.”
The family has asked that contributions be made to the Blaze Bernstein Memorial Fund at the Jewish Community Foundation Orange County to help children and families in need.

Monica Potter is going to be a mommy — for the fourth time!
The 46-year-old Parenthood alum — she starred as Kristina Braverman on the six-season NBC dramedy — announced Wednesday that she and her husband, Daniel Christopher Allison, are expecting their second child together.
Sharing a photo of herself cradling her bare baby bump, Potter wrote on Instagram and Twitter, “I have something to share…”
Potter and Allison, an Orthopedic Surgeon at USC County Hospital, are also parents to 12-year-old daughter, Molly Brigid. The actress was previously married to Tom Potter (1990-98), with whom she has two grown sons: Liam, 23, and Daniel, 27.
In 2009, Potter spoke of the gap in her kids’ ages, joking to PEOPLE that, “I have one every decade. So I started in my teens, then I had one in my 20s, and then my 30s. Enough now. No more.” At the time, she admitted that if she got the urging for more children, she would “adopt one.”
Three years later, the actress shared in 2012 that varying tastes for the screen is the toughest part about having kids with a large age gap between them.
“What makes me sad is that I can’t get them all to see the same movie unless it’s something we can all relate to. I’ll take Molly to see a movie that the boys are just not into at all. And she can’t watch certain things that they watch,” she said at the time.

She also discussed the importance of allowing one’s children to make mistakes in life.
“I just feel like if you try to raise your kids the right way — give them room to make mistakes, but also guide them in a direction that you hope to see them go — that’s all you can ask for,” she shared. “You can’t control them your whole life.”
