A Briton legally changed his name to “Celine Dion” one evening of brush

A Briton who was previously called Thomas Dodd claims to have changed his name to “Celine Dion” after a drunken evening in confinement.

Dodd told Birmingham Live that he had a few too many drinks while watching Celine’s concert recording, which prompted him to legally change his name.

“I’m a little obsessed with her, I won’t lie,” he confessed. “During the confinement, I watched a lot of concerts on TV. I guess I watched one of her and got ‘a great idea’ after a few drinks. “

The 30-year-old waiter lives in Staffordshire, England and saw Celine perform live in Birmingham in 2019.

Dodd – or should we say Dion – claims to have received official documents attesting to his name change in the mail a few days after Christmas. He apparently paid £ 89 (around $ 150 Canadian) to make the change and receive multiple copies of the attestation letter.

In the UK, the process for changing your name is fairly straightforward. The legal document received by the young man would then allow him to change the name appearing on his passport, driver’s license and other official documents.

The new Celine Dion says he is in no rush to return to his birth name.

“I’m going to sort this out, but I won’t rush to change it, that’s for sure,” he told Birmingham Live.
