Bruce Jenner announced a new name for her new life as a female - Caitlyn Jenner.
The name means pure, which may be how Caitlyn feels now that she's finally able to be who she truly is.
So why did Bruce choose the name Caitlyn for his new moniker? I've done some searching, but haven't found anything concrete. However, I have my theories.
- Caitlyn has the same 'K' sound as his kids' names, but doesn't start with a K, probably because the K would associate him too closely with ex-wife Kris Jenner. And let's not forget - Bruce liked the 'K' sound before he reproduced with Kris - his eldest daughter's name is Casey.
- Some people choose names that are similar to their original names, but Bruce is a tough name to match in a female form. Bruna? Bernice? They hardly sound young and fun like Caitlyn does. The only similar names I can think of are Brittany, Britta, Brittanya...and those just don't seem right for the new persona that Caitlyn is portraying.
- Caitlyn sounds youthful, and judging from Caitlyn's Vanity Fair cover, she's certainly embracing her youthful attitude! Rock it out, Caitlyn! Although I have to say - that cover photo looks hardly anything like Bruce / Caitlyn, so either a lot of plastic surgery or Photoshop made that picture possible.
Those are my theories - what are yours?
