Miley Cyrus is Legally Miley Cyrus!

by at . Comments

While the racy / naked Miley Cyrus pictures were dominating the news, the Disney icon had her name legally changed last week in Santa Monica.

Miley's dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, told Oprah he had a special reason for naming her Destiny Hope Cyrus, which she legally ditched last week.

Miley Cyrus' destiny and hope were to legally be called Miley.

"I had this vision that it was her destiny to bring hope to the world," Billy Ray said.

"And as a baby, she just kept smiling all the time. So her name was Destiny Hope, but I started calling her Smiley. Then as you start talking to a baby, you start dropping the S's off the front end, and pretty soon Smiley became Miley."

Lawyer William R. Sobel represented the Hannah Montana star at the Santa Monica Courthouse on Thursday morning.

The legal name change to Miley Cyrus was made official by Supervising Judge Gerald Rosenberg, Fox News reports.

"She was never referred to as Destiny Hope, ever since childhood she has been Miley Ray Cyrus and the family wanted her common name to become her legal name," Sobel told the court.
