Call him Jermaine Jacksun ... with a "U" ... because as of this afternoon, that's legally his name.

We've learned ... an L.A. County Superior Court judge approved the singer's petition for the name change, which the 58-year-old filed back in November. 

TMZ broke the story ... the man formerly known as "Jermaine Jackson" had said he wanted to make the change for "artistic reasons" ... whatever that means.

Jermaine was not present during the hearing ... because he's off in Europe performing with his brothers ... the Jacksons.

I once read that he named his son Jermajesty. I think that he is eccentric.

He did it to mess with the woman he and his brother shared, married and had kids with (Randy) and prob wants to stall the court papers to pay the kids.

Artistic reasons, huh? This would require him to be an artist and he's just a pathetic man who is longing for fame for ages.

Please Jermaine give a statement, i really like to hear from you why you did the name change. What we know is that you did it for artistic reasons, but Jackson-Jacksun sounds too much alike. If you wanted too change why not LaJaune Jacksun? Then it really would be a change! You are a Jackson, and you must be pride off it!

Oh and he has his wife's permission to take a second wife. No word on the lucky lady yet.
