Man Legally Changes His Name to Buzz Lightyear

buzz lightyear name changeSo, you often read about people doing some unusual things to raise money and/or awareness for a charity, but this one may very well take the cake. UPI reported today that a man in the UK has legally changed his name on his driver’s license to “Buzz Lightyear” as a result of a fundraising challenge.

The 26-year-old “Buzz Lightyear,” formerly known as Sam Stephens, changed his name last year after reaching a fundraising goal for a childhood cancer charity. Apparently, it took more than a year to win the right to legally change the name on his driver’s license.

So my question to you: If you could change your name to a Disney character, who would it be? Leave a comment below and let us know!

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us and DisneyEverything.com My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments:1) The birth of my son (who is now 6 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?)I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.
