Whitney Houston's Daughter

I Don't Want My Dad's Name

3/11/2012 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Whitney Houston
's daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown can't stand her name ... because of its association with her father Bobby Brown -- and now, TMZ has learned, she wants to change it all together.

Bobbi Kristina is telling friends ... she's wanted to change her name for years -- ever since her parents split -- but Whitney wouldn't let her.

Now that Whitney's gone, we're told the 19-year-old feels untethered -- and wants to finally change her name completely ... making it simply "Kristina Houston."

We're told Bobbi has made the decision with a sober mind and is in a "better place" than she's been in a while.

It's unclear when she plans to make the change official.

I think BK is making an irrational, impulsive decision out of emotional distress. There's probably also some serious influence from Whit's family, who is in major denial and blaming Bobby for Whit's choices. Whitney was using drugs long before she met Bobby, and that lifestyle was one of their attractions to one another. Even her backup singers and friends have said the family is in denial, that Bobby did not introduce Whitney to drugs or corrupt her. She stayed with him because she liked partying with him, and continued to use after they split. Like the Jacksons and so many other families of addicts, Whitney's family are not holding Whitney accountable for her own actions. And sadly, now they are blaming Bobby for his daughter's addictions too. Yes, both parents' behavior influenced this child, but the truth is that BK has made her own poor choices and blaming her dad or anyone else is denial. She, and her mom's family, need to face reality. Bobbi Kristina, changing your name won't make your problems go away, sweetheart. Nor will it make your grief go away. You're in our prayers!

You can change your name all you want;but no matter what your parents went through, your Mother love of her life was Bobby. And she wouldn't want her to change that part of him that gave her life. As her mi=om said he's her first,her last her everything. Don't make her unhappy by changing your name. Make her proud that you except the fact that no matter what you are loved.

She needs to fix that gap in her teeth if she really wants to distance herself from him!

Her family claims that they are from the CHURCH, well real church folks know the power of forgiveness, the Bible says, if you must FORGIVE (and really, truly mean it), if you want your FATHER (GOD) to forgive you from any transgressions you did against him. If they want to teach Bobbi Kristina Houston Brown anything that you have to face your fears (sit down with her father), you know what? I can't everybody needs to read the Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth (B.I.B.L.E.).

Pray for the the entire family, all of them Grandmother, Aunts, Cousins, etc. need the GOD type of healing...AMEN
