Goodwin filed name change papers in Los Angeles County Superior Court last month ... requesting to officially change her first name from Jennifer to Ginnifer. The name change became official yesterday.

Because life so much easier when you have to spell your common sounding name to everyone you meet.

How full of yourself do you have to be to waste everyone else's time with nonsense like this? Hint: if you want an official name change, then actually CHANGE your name because no one else but you cares about your insistence upon a different way of spelling the same damn name! If you need a unique name or a unique spelling of a name to make you feel special then perhaps it's time you changed something about yourself other than your name. Just sayin'.
