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?

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.

Funny, I thought she would have used the last name Gretzky, given Ellen has been on a bat out of helll mission to look like a young Wayne for at least the last decade and a half...add in her ripped off Groucho Walk, and suburban teen boy fashion sense, and you got a run of the mill copy cat.

Most creative part of Ellen Gretzky is a Team of writers.

What's with all the homophobia? They aren't hurting anyone. Let them be. I'm happy for them. Congrats to Ellen and Portia.

She should have changed it to Carpet Muncher Degeneres. That sounds much better.

It's disgusting that this has become acceptable in society. Next: the new norm, pedophelia!

Portia Degenerate.. has a nice ring to it. I could care less what these two as****s do. They can change their name to Moe and Joe and I still wouldn't care.

It's weird. But Ellen having a popular daytime TV show seems weird also.
