An Ohio woman named Sheila took a trip to the courthouse one day. Her aim? To change her name to Sexy.

And now Sheila, 41, is officially Sexy Ranea Crabtree. Since high school, she always went by Ranea because of how much she loathed her first name. Sheila, her original name, had come from her father, with whom she has not had a lot of contact with most of her life. In interview with CNN, Sexy said, "I've always hated Sheila. Now I am free from that ugly name."

Other names that she was toying with are "Sparkle" and "Sinder." But she apparently chose the name Sexy because it was more in line with her personality.
