Judge Robert Hoover approved the request on Tuesday 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 says that 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 that Crabtree told a judge that 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.
‘That was the last piece I needed for my life to feel complete, kind of like a puzzle,’ Sexy Ranea Crabtree told the Daily News.
