Man Gets Drunk And Changes His Name To Celine Dion.
MAN Gets Drunk And Changes His Name To Celine Dion Without Realising until he received the certificate with his name change
Thomas Dodd, aged 30, a hospitality manager from Staffordshire, got drunk over Christmas while watching his favourite singer Celine Dion on television, and had a real shock when he received a letter a few days later, confirming he had changed his name by deed poll to – CELINE DION.
According to Birmingham Live, he had even paid an £89 fee for the official name change, “I am slightly obsessed with her, I’m not going to lie. During lockdown, I’ve been watching a lot of live concerts on the TV. I can only think I’ve been watching one of hers and had a ‘great idea’ after a few drinks. I walked in from work and there was a big white envelope with ‘do not bend’ written across it. I nearly passed out in my kitchen when I opened it”.
Ms Dion continued, “My initial concern was how on earth do I tell the HR department at work that I need to change my email footer? Now I’m thinking it could be a great way to get backstage. I’m just praying I don’t get pulled over by the police for anything – that could get awkward. More annoyingly I’ve paid for eight extra certificates to prove it and they are £10 each. I’ll figure it out, I’m not rushing to change it back that’s for sure”.
