Chaz Bono

Changes ... His Name

3/29/2010 12:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chaz Bono is taking another major step in his gender transition -- he's applied to legally change his name.

TMZ has learned Chaz filed an application last week at L.A. County Superior Court to change his name from his female birth name Chastity Sun Bono -- to Chaz Bono.

As we first reported, Chaz began the gender transition process in 2009.

Bono Family Fun Fact: Cherilyn Sarkisian Bono Allman legally changed her name to just Cher in 1979.

Good for him! And for anyone saying hateful comments, watch a program now and again on people in Chaz's position. While I'm sure he doesn't want anyone's pity, it breaks your heart to hear what these people are going through. Just imagine you woke up tomorrow morning in the body of the opposite sex, but everything else about you was the same. How would you feel? Just imagine the torment.

The poor soul has been gaining a morbit amount of weight for a long time because she's mentally so confused and messed up that her only solice is FOOD. She's eating herself to death because she needs something to hold onto as she continues ignoring and turning a blind eye to the real problem in her life. There's a serious problem she won't address and she's trying to cover it up with sex changes, NAME changes, and all kinds of other shallow acts that don't do anything but make her core problem an even MORE pronounced!

Good for you Chaz! May you continue to enjoy your life inside and out the way that makes YOU feel whole. Don't listen to all the negativity. It is what matters to you and those who love you that matters.

Good for you!

Just because it changes gender doesn't mean it has to be a FAT PIG.
Lose some weight for G-d's sake. Drink a protein shake and go into the gym while you're at it.

Still just looks like a fat chick that is too lazy to take care of themself.

She was pretty when she was younger and cared about her appearance.

No matter what Chastity does, she is still female.

I hope he's happy now that Chastity is Chaz. However I think there is one more surgery he needs; Lapband. Please Chaz - your gender is one thing but your overall health is still a risk.
