Caitlyn Jenner has told how she loves that her youngest grandchildren will only know her as Caitlyn.

"I could go on the athletics field and kick everybody's butt".

Despite Caitlyn's positive message to parents, there was some sad news released on Friday (12May17) about the after-effects of her choice of a new name.

Although Caitlyn Jenner has remained mostly mum on the topic of the gender confirmation surgery she underwent earlier this year, she shared some information about the thought process behind the decision in an interview with Larry King on Thursday.

Jenner also said "the best thing the Republican party can do is do a better job on LGBT issues", adding that she was not a "big supporter" of the Republican party, nor Trump, but "I am a big supporter of my community and that is what I'm fighting for". But, well, to be honest with you, I really haven't talked to her in a long time.

At the height of its popularity, Caitlin, the name's most common spelling, ranked No. 44 in 1988.

Reminiscing over her early years, she said: "I was a dyslexic kid, I didn't do very well in school, so I suffered from low self-esteem, I had gender identity issues and I found sports was a way to prove my masculinity".

"It doesn't make me regret my vote yet, but it is very disappointing and I have been very verbal about that", she said.

In fact, the four names that dropped the most were all variations of the same name: Caitlin, Caitlyn, Katelynn and Kaitlynn. "Now it is suddenly controversial".

She went on to encourage parents to fully embrace their children, giving them as much support as they can during what can be a complicated and drawn-out transition.

"I don't know", Jenner replied. But Laura Wattenberg, founder of, told the Associated Press that she doesn't think the name's popularity changed exclusively because of the controversy surrounding Jenner, saying instead that the drop was "inevitable". "In part, we just want to avoid controversy in picking names."The Social Security Administration's website provides lists of the top 1,000 baby names for each year, dating to 1880".

Neither of these names is among the most popular, but they jumped more spots than any other names.

When King suggested his assumption that the surgery "would be tough", she answered, "It's not as bad as you think".
