Now that Caitlyn Jenner has revealed herself to the world with a Vanity Fair cover story and stunning photo shoot, some Austin residents are wondering if they should go through the hassle of renaming the street they call home. Why? Because they live on Bruce Jenner Lane. 

Austin's KVUE reports, a tiny South Austin street in the Olympian Hills neighborhood is drawing attention due to being named after the Olympic decathlon gold medal winner before she transitioned. But now that she uses the name Caitlyn, it would be supportive and respectful to follow suit by updating the street signs on the 0.3-mile long road. But as anyone in San Antonio who once had a Durango Blvd. address knows, changing a street name can be a costly and time consuming task.

So should the street signs say Caitlyn Jenner lane, that would be nice, but it's going to take approval from half the street's residents plus the Austin City Council, according to KVUE's report. 

Watch the KVUE report below.
