Fergie

Fergalicious Name Change

Is Complete

Fergie
isn't just a stage persona anymore -- she's officially changed her name from Stacy Ann Ferguson to Fergie Duhamel after a judge gave the sign off on Friday.

Fergie -- who's been married to actor Josh Duhamel for nearly 5 years -- requested the name change last month, claiming she wanted it for a bunch of reasons ... not the least of which is that no one ever calls her Stacy.

Fergie had to publish a notice in a local newspaper for four weeks (just like Ron Artest before he became Metta World Peace), which she dutifully did.

And just like that, she's a new person -- at least legally.

Hopefully Josh won't cheat on her forcing her to change her name back; such a waste of paper and court time.

It was her choice, but for everyone that is around the same age as her, & remember her as Stacy from when she was on Kids Incorporated.. this is crazy !

If Alyssa Milano was going to take her husband's name I doubt she would drop Alyssa.

It's sad when some people buy into their own PR !

Laura, she did go by Stacy on the show Kids Incorporated. That was her character's name as well.

Get a little bit of money and people don't know how to act.

At almost 40 years old, legally changing her name to Fergie is ridiculous. I can't believe her husband and family call her that.
