Miley Cyrus One Step Closer to Being Miley Cyrus

3/24/2008 8:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Miley CyrusDestiny Hope Cyrus has taken another step towards legally changing her name to the one we all know her by anyway -- Miley.

As TMZ first reported, Miley's parents, Leticia and Billy Ray, filed name change papers on March 14. Part of the process is that the Cyrus fam needs to make four public notices referring to the name change in order for it to become legal.

Today, a notice was put in the Los Angeles Daily Journal, announcing that a hearing making the name change official will take place on May 1.

I didn't know that wasn't the girl's real name. Destiny is a very pretty and strong name, why the hell would you wanna change it to "Miley"???

No idea why people hate the Cyrus family so much. I used to think Billy was dumb cause he made so dang much money on one ach breaky hit, but I've seen him interviewed several times, and he's always been polite, respectful, and given thoughtful input, Its gotta count for something. Don't know much about Miley, but I think she'll be alright if she keeps God and family first and remembers who her real friends are. Hey all that fame is a lot when you're 15-16.

Sorry, FIBiker we were just sitting here watchig the news, yes the news, no not Fox, the real news, and we were laughing ourselves silly at your inane attempts to incite some form of reprisal, the sad fact is that you are an uneducated, bigoted, self-loathing, individual with cleary pedophilic predilictions, and I would hope that you would turn to your faith or some form of mental health counselling treatment centre for help - but like many of your ilk - you will confine yourself to a lifetime of being a tax burden on American society - and that is part of the price we as principled adherents to the democratic ideal are willing to pay for our freedoms.

Continue your tirade, I am going to take a walk with my wife and you are quite correct I think of Billy Ray Cyrus as an American artist, just like John Mellencamp, John Stewart, Leonard Cohen, Bruce Springsteen, BB King, Kurt Cobain, and the list is endless - your very limited education and bigotry closes off too much of the world to you but there is always hope.

Now, continue your attack, that is a good soldier, and remember what the doctors told you the last time, take your lithium and don't listen to the voices, it is not right to have those thoughts about children or say those nasty things in public.

Peace and Love

Maybe she can follow in Ashley Dupre's footsteps. I wonder how long before she is begging to be in a Joe Francis video.

Plus, Miley actually has a meaning to her... it was her nickname when she was a little kid who couldn't pronounce Smiley. Miley is a cute name too, my best friend is naming her daughter Miley Lorraine! Miley Cyrus is actually a great role model for girls! My niece loves Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus and wants to pursue her own dream of being an artist or a singer... and my niece is 8!
