Whitney Houston's Daughter

I Don't Want My Dad's Name

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.

Wow ! She went from I wanted to see my dad to I want a name change. They surely have her brain washed. She will really regret this. Bobbi has siblings. The family shouldn't let her make haste choices.. They will hurt her in the end.. Bobbi is not in the right frame of mind. I hope someone steps in soon before she ends up like her mother..

marymac wrote that Bobbi kristina "watched him beat the hell of her mother, spit in her face and who knows what else." - Would these types of domestic violence beatups against whitney make bobbi kristina a damaged person who will end up like Amy Winehouse, dying at an early age of around 27?

If it helps her with her healing and mourning process, good for her.

Well this must a very difficult decision for bobbi kris to make given that fact she is about to become estranged to someone she knew all her life. But I see it as a little payback to her father for his shortcomings as a parent.

I don't think it is fair to play the blame game because we
only know what is printed, and we know how reliable that
normally isn't. Bobby brown can't be that bad and his daughter is still grieving. Don't be cruel!

Regardless he is your father and you look just like him,no matter what happened in the past you have to forgive and forget. They both are your parents!!! You have to love them both and you wouldn't be here if it wasn't for them.

Aw, that's too bad, she should have it Houston Brown. She is really going to hurt her Dad. Does she blame him? I did a long time ago when they were married but now I don't.
They have been divorced.
