What's in a Name? Miley Cyrus Edition

Posted on Mar 17, 2011

If you're anything like us, you've got a ton of nicknames. Your family calls you one thing, your friends call you something else, that boy you hate on the bus calls you something you'd rather not tell anyone, and your teacher calls you something really official. But KCA nominee Miley Cyrus, gets to have it her way. She chose the name she really wanted!

Miley Cyrus was born Destiny Hope Cyrus and back in 2008 she legally changed her name to Miley Ray Cyrus. She says she got her name from being called "Smiley" when she was little, which transformed into "Miley." She wanted her middle name to be the same as her dad's middle name. His name is Billy Ray Cyrus, so now everyone who didn't know before (were they living under a rock?) will know that they're related. We're so jealous! What would you name yourself if you could?
