A central Ohio woman who loathed being named Sheila and wanted a moniker that reflects her personality has legally changed her first name to Sexy.

A Licking County judge on Tuesday approved the request from the 41-year-old Pataskala (puh-TAS'-kuh-luh) woman formerly named Sheila Ranea Crabtree.

In her application, Crabtree called her given name "the ugliest one out there." She said if the court didn't allow the switch to Sexy, she'd try to become known legally by her middle name, which she has used for years.

The Columbus Dispatch ( ) reported Crabtree told a judge her husband and teenage daughters approve of the change. When the judge asked why she chose Sexy, Crabtree said she's fun and free-spirited and thought the change would make her complete.




You know, I'm all for people having self-confidence in themselves but really??? I think the same thing when I see an overweight person wearing clothing that they shouldn't even go to bed in, much less be seen out in public. I just think some folks love the attention so much they can't see the laughter that goes on behind their back.

She should have changed her name to flabby arms.


I think she just likes the attention. Do you really need to have your name be so "over the top"? She now has a perfect built in "stage name"....Sexy Crabtree! LOL. Good thing she is done with highschool. That would be made fun of CONSTANTLY!

Seen it All

Hahaha, and now she is a Sexy Crabtree? Our courts should not be filled with such silliness!

The Dispatch article mentions her hubby was thinking of changing his name to Harold Richard Crabtree.


Knew a couple named Harry and Ada Dick. There's also the urologist in Toledo, Dr. Dick Tapper.
