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.

Just foolin around    

I’m not a Patriots fan, but since the rest of you clueless did not watch the bowl game, Mr. Johnson aka Ochocinco was one of the receivers Brady could depend on in this particular game, he caught every pass to him, one in particular almost changed the game, another put them back into the game.

So its one thing to dislike a team, another to disrespect a very good player who has only been with this very complicated offense for one locked out season.

Chad performed very professionally given the pressure of the expectations of Brady and all of New England’s fan base the moment any new player hits the field.

Chad was the star receiver for Cincinnati, and has a lot of on and off the field charisma, that he has toned down to zero, I liked some of his antics, and watched him be creative, and bring a lot of fun to the off season.

So kiss off.

He does not have to change the name before the wedding, he can do it at the time of the wedding like women do. I work for Social Security, and at the time of marriage it is a legal name change, all you have to do is sign the name you want at the time of marriage, even daffy duck....it would be cheaper to do it without getting married though.
