Kendall Jenner Khloe Kardashian

Now that her level of fame has risen to entirely new heights, I guess we really shouldn't be all that surprised that Kendall Jenner has dropped her last name and is going by "Kendall" now -- you know, because that's what all the cool kids do once they're well known.

And out of all of her family members, I guess she's the most likely one to do it, because you can't sustain an identity on your first name if it's anything remotely common.

Think about it for a second. Seal. Madonna. Beyonce. The list goes on.

But wait until you hear her reasoning for kicking Jenner to the curb.

Supposedly it all has to do with her career -- because plenty of famous models go by their first names only.

Hmm. She wants to be known simply as Kendall in the modeling world.

Are you really buying that excuse? Or do you think it has more to do with the fact that she's trying to break away from the whole reality TV family thing -- or possibly the embarrassment that's been associated with her name because of dad Bruce Jenner's recent ... behavior?

Whatever the case, I guess we should refer to her as Kendall from now on. Eh, I suppose it has a nice ring to it.

Why do you think Kendall wants to lose Jenner?
