UK man gets so drunk on Christmas Eve he legally changes his name to Celine Dion

A man in the UK got so drunk on Christmas Eve that he went online and legally changed his name – then forget he’d done it.

As if that wasn’t hilarious enough, Thomas Dodd of Staffordshire, England, changed his name to – wait for it – Celine Dion.

After he’d had a few too many, 30-year-old Dodd got online, filled out an application form, paid the $150 fee and legally changed his name.

The reason?

He was watching a Celine Dion concert on YouTube at the time.

Incredibly, it wasn’t even the next day when he woke up with a Christmas Day hangover that he remembered what he’d done.

He received Deed Poll papers in the mail certifying his name change from Thomas Dodd to Celine Dion on December 30, and only realised then.

Dodd – now Dion – has decided to keep the name, depending “on how difficult it makes my life.”
