Maria Sharapova Wants A Sweet Name Change For The U.S. Open!

maria sharapova wants to change her name to sugarpova for us open

Athletes make SOOO much money from their sponsors, that they essentially become walking billboards during big events and tournaments.

But Maria Sharapova is planning on taking endorsement to a whole new level as she's actually considering changing her name to promote her very own candy line, Sugarpova!

According to sources, the tennis superstar is looking into the possibility of a "quickie name change" and has already contacted the Florida Supreme Court about her interesting inquiry!

If everything goes according to plan, she'll be referred to as Maria Sugarpova for the duration of the U.S. Open and will change her name back as soon as the tournament is over!

Maria has poured a lot of money into her sweet business venture, so it makes sense that she would want to promote it any way she could. But we're not quite sure how we feel about her sugary name change!

What about U, readers?? What do U think??

fergie name change official

Finally!

Now when we call her Fergie, we'll actually be using her legal name!

After waiting for the name change to become official, Fergie can celebrate dropping Stacy Ann Ferguson and becoming Fergie Duhamel. Looks like Josh Duhamel finally has a Mrs. Duhamel!

Fergalicious Fergie requested the change about a month ago and had to wait for it to be legal after posting a notice in a local newspaper for four weeks.

And gurlfriend took care of business and got it done!

A judge has now signed off on the matter and Fergie can carry on being Fergie!

This guy is like a bucket full of laughs!

Metta World Peace famously changed his name from Ron Artest when he moved to Los Angeles, and now that he’s joined the New York Knicks, he’s doing it again!

He spoke with a reporter while at a signing for his childrens book and tried to clarify what it is exactly that he’s doing (above).
