Caitlyn Jenner chose her name after being inspired by the Miss America pageant.
Caitlyn told Vanity Fair she had been watching the pageant in the last couple of years to come up with ideas for names. Two names resonated with her -- Heather and Cathy.
It sounds like Heather and Cathy were front-runners but she also liked Caitlyn. Ultimately, Caitlyn's assistant Rhonda tipped the scales when she suggested Caitlyn.
Jenner had been on the fence but Rhonda pushed him over the line.
