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.

So sad. Life is too short. Can't carry hate in your heart forever. Looks just like him. Her mother was a junkie , nobody to help her life after bobby. She loved bobby in her own special way. He's still in her will. Could have changed it anytime before her death.

If she's telling 'her friends' this and TMZ has gotten a hold of the info, those people she's telling this to ARE NOT friends.

I'm inclined to think that her mom had the same issue if allowing people who don't mean her well, have her back, to get too close to her.

Kristina Houston, please, tighten up your circle of supposed friends. Re-evaluated all the people around, even if they are related to you by blood, God, or whatever.

How can it be imagined that there are people who have the slightest interest or concern as to what name Whitney Houston's daughter takes?
Poor Whitney Houston. Wiped out by the distorted reality of a degenerate society. Joins a long list of the best people, wiped out by a disgusting and rapacious society.

Your mother gave you that name and you need to keep it. Changing it is not going to change the fact that Bobby is your father.

Bobby Kristina lived a life we know nothing about. She should do anything that makes her feel whole.

I GUARANTEE YOU THAT IF WHITNEY DIED AND LEFT HER $35 IN HER CHECKING/SAVINGS, AND IT WAS BOBBY BROWN THAT HAD MILLIONS OF DOLLARS, SHE WOULD NOT BE SAYING THAT

While she's at it, since she's trying to disavow a connection to her father Bobby Brown, why doesn't she do something about that spit gap in her front teeth that she inherited from him as well...or does she think that looks good?

The " ONLY " reason she would want to change it to Houston ....$$$$$$
She think's having her mother's name will take her far in life.That somehow where ever she goes in life that people will cater to her,worship her like they did her mother.
If Brown was more famous than Houston.....you can bet she would be sticking with Brown.
She want's to carry herself throu life on her mother's name.This is all PR on her part.
She think's with the Houston name she will be invited to all the thing's her mother was and keep up the lifestyle she is used to of whenever out people catering to her.
It won't happen ! She is young. NO ONE if going to care in a couple year's that she is the junkies daugther being a junkie herself.
She need's to be her own person, and it will take time.Get cleaned up, go on to college and get a career.
She need's to do something with her life, NOT ride on her mother's shirt tail's as she think's having the Houston name will do.
What ?? Is this going to be her big career move ?? Change her name to Houston, and somehow that will take care of everything ??
Jackson's anybody ??
