Why Caitlyn Jenner Isn't Spelling Her Name With a "K"

Pin It
Caitlyn Jenner made her stunning debut on the July 2015 issue of Vanity Fair, with a headline that simply read "Call Me Caitlyn."

A lot of people were wondering why the Kardashian/Jenner family member didn't continue the tradition and spell her name with a "K" instead of a "C."

According to TMZ, there was a reason. The site claims that Caitlyn spelled her name with a "C" because she 'wanted a clean break from the Kardashian moniker.' It sounds like Caitlyn just wants to make it clear that she is her own person and not using a "K" was part of that.

Caitlyn is also forming her own social media presence, joining both Twitter and Facebook. After tweeting her gorgeous Vanity Fair cover, Caitlyn shared this beautiful message as her first tweet.

In a behind-the-scenes video from her Vanity Fair shoot (below), Caitlyn explained the struggle she felt when she was living as Bruce. "Bruce always had to tell a lie. He was always living that lie. Every day he always had a secret, from morning til' night," she revealed. "Caitlyn doesn't have any secrets. As soon as the Vanity Fair cover comes out, I'm free."

Now, the cover IS here, it's absolutely beautiful and we can't wait to get to know Caitlyn!
