Licking County Woman Changes Name To ‘Sexy’

From Ohio’s Columbus Dispatch:

Judge approves Sexy name change

By Lori Kurtzman |February 12, 2014

…  Sexy Ranea Crabtree got her new name in court yesterday, during the briefest of hearings before Licking County [sic] Probate Judge Robert Hoover.

Sexy Crabtree? Licking County? What is going on in this country?

The Pataskala woman had requested to legally ditch her first name, Sheila, which she hated so much she’d only refer to it as Ugly.

With a capital U?

She walked into court yesterday morning in a summery dress splashed with bursts of orange and yellow. You could barely see her trembling.

“What is your reasoning behind changing your first name to Sexy?” the judge asked her.

“I feel like I’m a free-spirited person, I love to have fun, and this is the last piece to make my life complete,” she said.

And then Hoover asked whether her teenage daughters and her husband, the latter of whom joined her in court, approved of the change. She said yes. And it was over.

“The court will grant you your request,” Hoover said.

Apparently, there aren’t any ‘truth in labeling’ laws in Licking County.

Crabtree visibly relaxed. Weeks of stress and pressure and interviews with radio stations and newspapers from around the globe — not to mention those taunts from online strangers — were done. There was nothing to be nervous about anymore. Sheila, a name attached to memories she’d rather forget, was gone.

Only Sexy remained. And she beamed.

What a beautiful story. And just in time for Valentine’s Day.

    Not only is it pretty ridiculous… it’s false advertising.
