Different names sound strange to different people. I have come across names, both foreign and domestic, that I sometimes have trouble pronouncing. But this one is a doozey: Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop Bop-Bop.
Beezow, a Wisconsin man formerly known as Jeffrey Drew Wilschke, has not had much success since his name change: According to CBS News, Mr. Bop-Bop was recently arrested for carrying a concealed weapon, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, and a probation violation. This has led to an outcry for the freedom of Beezow, including the following clip:
So, in Florida could you legally change your name to Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop Bop-Bop? You may be surprised, but the answer is…probably yes.
Florida Courts are pretty lenient regarding changes of name so long as (i) the name does not infringe on the property rights (including intellectually property rights) of others, (ii) your civil rights are not suspended (by, for example, being convicted of a felony), and (iii) the request for a name change is not for ulterior or illegal motives (such as avoiding arrest or a money judgment).
