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.

This girl needs her teeth straightened. She has money now and should have braces or something done. Her mother had a wonderful smile -- no reason Bobbi shouldn't either. It will make her look less like her father.

About blaming dad and not mom for her own actions? Generation #2 of not taking responsibility.

Ouch.
It takes a year for the effects of drugs to be "sober".

Oh well    

'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."

Give me a break, her mom just died... Its called emotions. And a "sober mind?" What happened to the rehab?

If she wants to change her name LET HER it's her right after all the abuse that she witness her father inflicted on her mother why not. This is a daughter who's very loyal to her mothers memory. Bobby Brown does not deserve to be father to a wonderful young lady he's just going to destroy her life the way he did to her mother.

Bobbi Kris needs to calm down and take some time. Bobby Brown was the love of her mother's life and Bobbi Kris (as Whitney so lovingly called her) is the product of that love so Bobbi Kris should be proud of her existence; and surely Whitney intimately and carefully selected her only child's name so Bobbi Kris is dishonoring her mother as well as disrepecting and wounding her father by wanting to change her name. Another commenter suggested "Bobbi Kristina Houston-Brown" which looks and sounds great to me.

She is just another 19 year old that thinks she knows it all but really don't know S&*t. She is just like Bobby in every way. She is headed down the hard road already. Her mother was nothing buy a drug addict herself. She been involved with drugs since her and Bobby were first together. She just keep it hid better than Bobby. Live by the sword die by the sword.

Hopefully she's not inter-secs'd and does a Chaz Bono because if she was she'd look just like a younger Bobby Brown, but with a tiny peen.

Oh, Whitney gets a pass on having no responsibilities in this whole matter. I don't think so. She made the decision to lay with him and make a child. It was her fault just as much as Bobby's. They both were drug addicts period. Now you see the results and it is sad. Little Bobbi will have a hard road to travel. She is already smoking weed. She may change her name but she is just like Bobby inside and out.
