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.

The name "Sexy" doesn't fit the face - ugh.

Does she really think Sexy is a good name for some one who will never be sexy. Cute might have been a better name.

Sorry that this person has such little respect for her parents that named her. Now as to the new name...frankly she is in no way sexy as far as I am concerned, but I am not into girls so who knows. Selfish is all I can think............................

I feel sorry for people, usually women, who have names like "Charm" or like this foolish woman "Sexy", which on first look as a straight woman I would say she is not! Why label yourself & set yourself up for all sorts of snide comments? I'm guessing she is so insecure she needs to hear herself labelled a certain way on a daily basis, but like some others have already commented, her new name is litigation waiting to happen & a real negative in terms of any career outside of Las Vegas. I get that she doesn't like "Sheila", which literally means "girl" in Irish or Australian slang. What's wrong with Ranea or almost any other name on the planet other than "Sexy"?

You said it well! Also, she went to a lot of trouble to do this to herself! I believe she is very insecure and wants a lot of attention. At least she's getting that!

Thank you! For someone named "Charm" Or "Sexy", what about those days where she clearly isn't?
