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.

She might be able to get rid of the name, but she won't be able to get rid of that Bobby Brown face, poor girl.

Can you really believe anything that they print on this site? Didnt TMZ report that the family didnt want Bobby Brown at the Funeral...ummmm Well the family said he was welcome...and he was supposed to be there...I'm thinking the source that's close to the situation is probably the same source that took the coffin pic.

It really is her decision for whatever reason. Most celebrity's have changed their names one way or another. Do you really think "Lady Gaga" is stamped on a birth certificate somewhere?

I agree. In this world anyone can be a father, but no anyone can ba a mother. If will be in the same situation I will do the same. Many people had say that is her father, that's right, but only trhe family knows what kind of relationship they did have before Witney death. How he shows up at the funeral? when people are divorced, that mean the relatioship ends, no more shows. He was too unsensitive showing at the funeral, PLUS knowing that witney became adicted to drugs, because HE introduced her to that evil thing. And is obvious, he is rehabilitated from that..but he is NON-grata person to the family of Witney Houston. Amen.

Sounds like a good idea to me. Kristina Houston is a much prettier name anyway. I always thought "Bobbi Kristina" was a dumb name. I would change it too.
