Chad Ochocinco

I'm Getting My Johnson Back

2/9/2012 11:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Chad Ochocinco is going back to Chad Johnson
Say goodbye to Chad Ochocinco ... the Patriots star is telling friends, he plans to change his last name BACK to Johnson in time for his wedding this summer -- because he doesn't want his wife to have a made-up last name.

Ocho's wedding to his "Basketball Wives" fiancee Evelyn Lozada is set for July in Florida -- and sources tell TMZ, the wide receiver plans to legally change his last name back to the one he was born with before he ties the knot.

Despite hedging last month, we're told Evelyn doesn't care what name she ends up with -- Johnson or Ochocinco -- the choice is entirely up to Chad ... but it appears he's already made up his mind.

Too bad ... we literally JUST bought his Pats jersey.

He said he would change has name back to Johnson if he got shut-down by Revis. Guess what Revis shut him down in back to back weeks. Chad's word means nothing. If it was a regular person they might change there name back in respect for there father that passed away. I doubt he will be on an NFL team next year.

Let me get this straight... He was born "Johnson" changed it to "Ochocinco" and now is changing it back to "Johnson" because he is getting married in July?? I think its the fact that Wifey didn't want the last name "Ochocinco" Honestly if I had a choice between the two....I would go with "Johnson. lol.

This guy is more mixed up than a feather in a whirlwind. Too bad he cares less about football these days, he used to be good. Old football players never die they just change their names.

He needs to change it to Chad 5150..lol. I doubt if this marriage takes place but IF it does, expect it to last as long as Kim K's marriage. She's too insecure and jealous over nothing and he's a grown man with a child's mind.

Keyshawn Johnson, Terrell Owens and Chad "I can say the numbers eight and five in Spanish". They were all so full of themselves that their egos were bigger than their abilities. Keyshawn learned late that his ego was killing his career. Owens never did. Chad is only changing his name because even HE knows it's ridiculous.

Always wondered if he actually thought his name meant 85, or if he just spared the extra letters in "ochenta y cinco" so it'd fit on his back. In any case, it's ridiculous. I'd suggest he change it to "Herramienta".
