As per the demands of his Guru Vaisampayana ,Yjavalkya vomited all the knowledge that he acquired from his teacher in form of digested food. Other disciples of Vaisampayana took the form of partridge birds and consumed the digested knowledge (a metaphor for knowledge in its simplified form without the complexities of the whole but the simplicity of parts) because it was knowledge and they were very eager to receive the same.
The Saskt name for partridge is "Tittiri". As the Tittiri (partridge) birds ate this Veda, it is thenceforth called the Taittirya Yajurveda. It is also known as Ka Yajurveda or Black-Yajurveda on account of it being a vomited substance.

There are four recensions of the Krishna Yajurveda:
Taittirya sahit (TS) originally of Panchala
Maitrayani sahit (MS) originally of the area south of Kurukshetra
Caraka-Kaha sahit (KS) originally of Madra and Kurukshetra
Kapihala-Kaha sahit (KapS) of the southern Punjab and Bahika

Each of the recensions has or had a Brahmana associated with it, and most of them also have associated Shrautasutras, Grhyasutras, Aranyakas, Upanishads and Pratishakhyas.
