Portia de Rossi --

Officially Portia DeGeneres

9/23/2010 4:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Portia de Rossi is no more ... at least in the name department ... because she's now officially known as Portia Lee James DeGeneres.

Portia DeGeneres name change.
TMZ has learned a judge granted Portia's name change petition today in L.A. County Superior Court. She and Ellen DeGeneres got married in 2008.

We know "Lee" was Portia's original middle name, but "James" seems to be an added name. Hey, if you're already filing the paperwork ... why not?

a/k/a Amanda Lee Rogers (how country can you get?). So Portia is a step up (along with that nose job - when she was in Scream 2 as a co-ed in the soror house with Michelle Geller - fugly.

No she has bagged Ellen, beaten an eating disorder and living happy so kudos to Mandy.

Hey #16, I take it by your apparent need to refer to political affiliations that you must be of a liberal persuasion, or whatever it's called. Myself, I don't really see the need to define the homosexual issue with politics. It's more of common sense issue given that this type of behavior is clearly unnatural. In my experience, when people become angry and resort to name-calling, it's usually indicative of a lack of an argument. Try developing one next time.
