Woman Changes Name to Include Entire Alphabet


A 22-year-old mother from South Yorkshire, England, formerly known as plain old Ceejay Epton, has changed her name to Ceejay A Apple B Boat C Cat D Dog E Elephant F Flower G Goat H House I Igloo J Jellyfish K Kite L Lion M Monkey N Nurse O Octopus P Penguin Q Queen R Robot S Sun T Tree U Umbrella V Violin W Whale X X-Ray Y Yo-Yo Z Zebra Terryn Feuji-Sharemi.

“Miss Alphabet,” as she’s been dubbed by the British press to save both time and headaches, said she changed her name to help teach her newly born son the alphabet and “for a bit of a laugh.” We’re sure it won’t seem as funny when she has to break the news to her various credit-card companies and the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency.

Epton changed her name through The Legal Deed Poll Service, which charges £10 for moniker upgrades — or downgrades, depending on whom you ask. The company gained wide recognition in 2008 when a teenager named George Garratt used the service to legally become known as Captain Fantastic Faster Than Superman Spiderman Batman Wolverine Hulk And The Flash Combined. Garratt told the BBC, “My family have begun to expect these sorts of things from me, and although my friends thought it was ridiculous most people do call me Captain and it’s been a great conversation starter.”

If you were going to change your own name, what would you change it to?
