Kim KardashianI think we all knew this was coming. Kim Kardashian has officially changed her name to Kim Kardashian West. Well, presumably that's on the marriage certificate, but what really counts is that she changed it on Twitter and Instagram. In Kim's world, that's official!

It's been pretty obvious from the get-go that Kanye is the alpha in this relationship. He's got Kim dressing the way he wants. He's got her hanging out in Paris. He's got her honeymooning in Ireland, even though you know damn well she was secretly hoping for Saint Tropez.

So it's not a huge surprise that she became Kim Kardashian West. Notably, she didn't change her name with her two other marriages. But you know by the time she said "I do" in those, she was thinking, "I do ... want a divorce!"

Kim is undoubtedly really in love this time. And there was no way that Kanye wouldn't want her to change her name. He seems proud of her "career" -- such as it is -- but you also get the feeling he's an old-fashioned kind of guy.

Still, a name change doesn't guarantee a marriage will last. Just ask Khloe Kardashian Odom. The name was the first thing to go when the marriage hit the rocks, even before the papers were filed.

So just keep an eye on that "West" if you want to know how things are going.

Should Kim have changed her name?
