Ohio mom allowed to change name to 'Sexy'



NEWARK, Ohio (AP) -- A central Ohio woman who loathed being named Sheila and wanted a moniker that reflected her personality has legally changed her first name to Sexy.

A judge approved the request Tuesday from the 41-year-old Pataskala (puh-TAS'-kuh-luh) woman, formerly named Sheila Ranea Crabtree.

In her application, Crabtree called her given name "the ugliest one out there." She says that if the court didn't allow the switch to Sexy, she'd try to become known legally by her middle name, which she has used for years.

The Columbus Dispatch reports (HTTP://BIT.LY/1ARXCE1 ) that Crabtree told a judge that her husband and teenage daughters approve of the change. When the judge asked why she chose Sexy, Crabtree said she's fun and free-spirited and thought the change would make her complete.

Nothing wrong with the name Sheila or Ranea, better then what she changed it to.

Well! I think she should have changed her last name instead of her first.
Crabtree is far more offensive than Sheila.
Makes me think of Archibald Leach, Bernard Schwartz, Marion Morrison. All famous movie stars who changed their names.
