New York - Choosing between a "C" and a "K" for her new name was no small task for Caitlyn Jenner, considering her famous K-heavy family of Kardashians.

In new material from Jenner's Vanity Fair interview, she said coming up with a new name had her looking in a variety of places.

"It's one of the hardest things in life - choosing your own name," she said. "One way she attempted to come up with ideas was by watching the Miss America pageant."

She also liked Heather and Cathy, but Caitlyn was a front-runner when her assistant, Rhonda, independently suggested it, Jenner said.

She responded: "I love that name, too!" and the coincidence helped seal the deal, according to Vanity Fair.

But Jenner went back and forth about how it would be spelled, deciding it was best to break the Kardashian tradition.

Jenner, formerly known as Bruce, was married to Kris Jenner and step-parent to the Kardashian clan. Her daughters are also named K-names — Kylie and Kendall.
