Miley's Mom -- Changing Names Runs in the Family

9/7/2010 4:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Leticia Cyrus -- aka the mother of Miley Cyrus -- is following in her daughter's too-mature-for-age footsteps ... by filing to have her name legally changed.

Miley Cyrus wasn't born Miley Cyrus -- she was actually Destiny Hope Cyrus. She filed docs back in 2008 and had her name legally changed to Miley Ray Cyrus.

Now her mom is doing the same -- TMZ has obtained docs Leticia Finley Cyrus filed last week requesting her name be legally changed to Tish Finley Cyrus, which she says she has been known as "for as long as she can remember."

She'll still go by her most common name -- Miley's Mom.

Don't tell Billy Ray's heart, his achy breaky hart, it just don't seem to understand.

This actually makes sense. She is known more as Tish than anything else.

You can change your name and you can take the mama from the trailer park, but you can't take the trailer park outta the mama.

The names were horrible before they legally changed them and they didn't get any better after. What a trashy family.

Wow, I've never seen Miley's mom before. Unlike her daughter, I think she is attractive!

I agree with #16, that the Tish is attractive, far more than Smiley Miley. Actually, that picture reminds me of the slightly younger, Playboy-era Shauna Sand. There's a slight resemblance, not much, but some in the face and long blond hair.

From Leticia to Tish? That's like spending 6 hours and the $300 registry cost to change your name from Stanley to Stan.

"Hello my name is now Will. It used to be William but I had it legally changed to Will and now I really feel like the true me after all these traumatic, frustrating years living a lie as "William". Ya, dig it."
