It's not every day that you get to encounter a person who wants to change her first name to some kind of an adjective like 'Sexy.'

Ranea Crabtree is one of those persons who want to carry out an odd request of having her first name changed to 'Sexy.' A Huffington Post article mentioned that she related her new name to the kind of personality she has. Ms Crabtree confessed that she likes wearing a lot of sexy clothes from Victoria's Secret plus the fact that her hubby calls her sexy most of the time.

"I really want to do Sexy because it's kinda' like my personality. I just love to be adventurous, have fun and do all kinds of things," she added.

Ms Crabtree's first name is Sheila, who she explained, her dad gave to her while Ranea is her middle name which her mum gave. She even thinks that she has been "cursed" with the name that she considers "ugly."

Will You Do Everything For A Name Change?

Ms Crabtree has reportedly went through all the possible ways to change her name. She had already filled out a form for name change and paid a court fee of $87. It also includes an official notice on the local newspapers for 30 days. She will also have to stand in court on February 11, 2014 to ask the judge of her request for name change.

The Observer.ca also wrote that if 'Sexy' won't work, then Ms Crabtree said she is also considering the name 'Sparkle.' Her teenage daughter is also clueless with why her mum finds the name Sheila ugly to the point that she gets grounded each time she calls her mum by the first name.

Other odd name change stories documented include that of two guys from England, Time magazine recalls. The two guys' names were Daniel Knox-Hewson, which was changed to Emperor Spiderman Gandalf Wolverine Skywalker Optimus Prime Goku Sonic Xavier Ryu Cloud Superman HeMan Batman Thrash and the other is Kelvin Borbidge changed to Baron Venom Balrog Sabretooth Vader Megatron Vegeta Robotnik Magneto Bison Sephiroth Lex Luthor Skeletor Joker Grind.

According to legal authorities, it is most likely that Ms Crabtree's request for a name change to 'Sexy' will be granted for as long as she can render a proper reason for it.
