What’s in a name? In a deleted scene from the Sunday, May 22, episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kris Jenner tells Khloé Kardashian that she is preparing for a major moniker change.

The E! series clip shows Jenner, 60, telling her daughter, 31, that she refers to herself as “Kris Kardashian” when she makes restaurant reservations. The reality TV staple finalized her divorce from the late Robert Kardashian in March 1991 and married Bruce Jenner a month later.

When Khloé points out that her legal last name is Jenner, the momager replies, “I’m going to change my name back to Kardashian. … I was that before you were that. I was the original Kardashian.”

A startled Khloé asks, “Don’t you think that’s insulting to your two daughters?” And Jenner fires back, “If Bruce can change his name to Caitlyn, I think I’m good.”

This is not the first time the cookbook author has voiced this plan. Jenner mentioned on a previous Keeping Up episode — back when she was still married to Bruce — that she was considering changing her name to Kardashian.

Keeping Up With the Kardashians airs on E! Sundays at 9 p.m. ET.
