Changing Her Name to “Sexy”

I live (and love) Ohio, and have written about some issues that have happened in my beloved state before. On my commute home, I heard a local radio show talking about someone Sexy. Well, she isn’t Sexy yet, but she is hoping to be.

There is a woman named Sheila Crabtreewho lives in Licking (of course) county who is petitioning the court to legally change her name from “Sheila” to “Sexy.

Have you ever gone through a point where you disliked your first name? If you have, you may get what Sheila is going through. In fact, Sheila dislikes her name so much that she has been going by her middle name for years. She intends to continue going by her middle name (Ranea, if you’re curious) with those she knows. She decided on “Sexy” because she owns a lot of Victoria’s Secret. I was a little unsure until I read that she doesn’t care who calls her Sexy, but she is changing it for herself – no one else. I’ll call her Sexy (Sexy Crabtree).
