The actress filed the docs yesterday in L.A. County Superior Court -- requesting that a judge legally change her name from "Jennifer" to her professional name, stat ... but she'll have to wait a couple more months before it's official.

Always a wise move to change your name from the standard spelling to an unusual one. Why make easy on yourself when dealing with the rest of the world when you can instead have to spell your name to everyone and still have half of them get it wrong.

I don't know why, but I hate it when people insist on having "unique" spellings of common names. Irritates me. If your parents spelled it like that, fine...but as an adult to change the spelling of your name is arrogant. It's like announcing to the world...I am so special!

She has become a bit odd. She also insists on wearing wigs for roles- doesn’t like to style her own hair for a character, says the wigs help her get into the part... Maybe some of Chloe Sevigny's kookiness has rubbed off on her.

But I agree, boring...

How stupid. I hope everyone between now and the day she dies misspells her name when they write it down.

So much so that when asked her name she always has to introduce herself as "Jennifer with a G" in order for them to get it right. Would serve her right for making such a silly name change. lol

This is almost as bad as legally changing your name to Miley.
