Kim Kardashian will be known as Kim Kardashian West following her marriage to Kanye West, if her social media accounts are anything to go by!

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has officially changed her name on Twitter and Instagram from Kim Kardashian to Kim Kardashian West.

Her user handles remain the same.

Kim and Kanye married in Florence, Italy on 24 May, in a lavish ceremony attended by their closest friends and family.

Although Kim had previously said she would take Kanye's name, there had been speculation about whether she would drop her Kardashian surname entirely. Clearly not!

Perhaps that's not too surprising, though.

Fans of Keeping Up With The Kardashians will remember when Kim was engaged to basketball player Kris Humphries, her mum Kris Jenner talking about the importance of the Kardashian name brand.

And Kris also told PopEater at the time: "I think she needs to be Kim Kardashian because she's worked so hard to get to where she is."

We guess Kardashian West is a pretty good compromise. And we can't imagine Kris having any objections to Kim taking superstar rapper Kanye's surname! It's hardly a bad thing, right?!

Kim walked down the aisle in a Givenchy Haute Couture white lace gown and veil, while Kanye wore a Givenchy custom-made tuxedo as they exchanged vows at the sixteenth century Fort Belvedere.

It's now believed Kim and Kanye have flown to Ireland for their honeymoon, while their daughter North West is being looked after by Kris in LA.
