Someone in Birmingham legally changed their name to Ruby Tuesday last year.
She is one of at least 121 people to have changed their name by deed poll in the West Midlands since the beginning of 2016, Mail exclusive analysis shows.
Nationwide more than 3,500 people have changed their name in the past two years.
In August 2017, Jessica Anne McIntyre from Birmingham changed her name to Ruby Tuesday, the same name as a Rolling Stones song and then an American restaurant chain.
Other people chose to go by unusual names around Britain.
Someone in Oldham added ‘Prince’ to his name in May 2016 to become Prince Jack Clegg, someone in south-east London became Alex Wonderland and Janice Odum became Janice Autumn Skye James.
Perhaps the most unusual name change of all concerns the man formerly known as Mark William Benson from Merseyside.
He changed his name to Mark I Love Spam Benson.
He really does love spam – he married his partner in April 2017 at a Spam museum in Minnesota, United States.
Most people who change their names only change a small part, such as dropping a name, making a surname double-barrelled or changing the spelling.
This data excludes parents or guardians changing their children’s names.
There isn’t a mandatory legal process for changing your name in the UK, but many people choose to write a deed poll confirming their change of name.
If you want to announce your name change publicly, you can enrol it using the courts.
The enrolled notices are published in the The Gazette, the source of this data.
