Kan it be? Have Kim Kardashian and Kanye West finally decided what they’ll be calling their new daughter?

The couple, who welcomed a baby girl over the weekend, have kept quiet as to her name so far. (The child’s been dubbed “Kimye” by the press for months.) But England’s Mirror is reporting that a nurse at Cedars Sinai hospital in L.A., where Kim delivered, has let the cat out of the bag.

According to unnamed reports, the Mirror says, the nurse at the posh hospital revealed that Kanye and Kim will call their pride and joy (drumroll please) Kaidence.

But don’t order that personalized bath towel for them just yet! There’s more. A person identified only as a “family insider” says that Kim and Kanye might call the baby Kai Georgia Donda West, which would be a sweet tribute to some of the couple’s deceased loved ones. Kanye’s late mother was Dr. Donda West, and “Georgia” is the female version of “George”—the middle name of Kim’s late father.

Like almost any piece of Kardashian news, though, what you’ll hear depends on who you ask. Still, other reports are saying the baby’s full name will be Kaidence Donda West. And Internet-watchers have also suggested we might eventually learn the baby’s name is, in fact, Klementine Star; someone registered the domain name klementinestarwest.com, they point out.

So when are we going to hear the truth, once and for all? Stay tuned. Kim’s mother, Kris Jenner, has been dropping hints that the baby’s name will be announced for the first time on her talk show. But even that might not be the case: Rapper Kanye recently said in an interview that he doesn’t like talking about his family or the details of his baby’s birth.
