NEWARK, Ohio — 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 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 reports 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.
