Shayne Lamas' Hubby

Taking Wife's Last Name

7/11/2010 4:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Shayne Lamas' new husband is officially taking his wife's last name -- but Hooman Abedi Karamian claims he's only doing it because he's sick of people thinking he's a Kardashian.

TMZ has learned Hooman -- aka Nik Richie from "The Dirty" website -- and his wife have both filed applications in Arizona to change their names ... hoping to become Nik Lamas-Richie and Shayne Lamas-Richie

But the best part -- in Nik's application, he documents several reasons for wanting to drop his given name, noting that he "can't even pronounce it" -- and adding, "People ask me if I am related to the Kardashians which is tacky."

Meanwhile, nowhere in the docs does he complain about the name of his birthplace ... Hackensack, NJ.

I like how Angel claims to have slept with Nik, but then tells him to move to Arizona, where he already lives

in my country you cannot take your wife's ex husbands name, you have to be related to or have some connection to the name to be able to get it, or it has to be a very common name like jackson or something for you to be able to take it, in my country you would have to ask EVERY adult person born into the Lamas name, if you could have it, but i guess in the U.S. anything goes... and if anything goes, why on earth would you want Lamas as your last name, now everyone will ask if you're related to Lorenzo, ha ha

Hooman thinks the Kardashians are tacky--hahahahahahahaha (laughing uncontrollably). Look in the dictionary, Moo, and beside the word "tacky" you'll find a picture of yourself. And beside the word "trashy" and "sleazy" and "lowlife" and "conman" and "unattractive". The Kardashians ARE tacky, but at least they're JUST tacky.
