I think everyone goes through a phase where they fantasize about changing their name. For instance, when I was four, I was hellbent on becoming Ali Angelowicz, which is absurd considering how similar it is to my actual name. My mom played along and called me Ali for a week and eventually, the novelty wore off and I wanted my old name back.
Sheila Ranea Crabtree, of Licking County, OH (she declined to reveal her age, but she appears to be fully grown), is still hung up on her “ugly” birth name. “I absolutely hate it,” she told The Columbus Dispatch. That’s why, on February 11th, Crabtree will petition a local judge to legally change her name to “Sexy.”
“I wear Victoria’s Secret clothes all the time. I was like, ‘Shoot, I’ll just go for Sexy,’” explained Crabtree.
Soon-to-be-Sexy feels very confident that the Licking County judge will decide favorably in her case, but if he doesn’t, she has a backup name in mind. “If it’s not Sexy,” she said, “then I might go for Sparkle.”
