Ron Artest changing name to “Metta World Peace”

Honestly, I feel a little odd making fun of World Peace, but here we go…

Eccentric Lakers forward Ron Artest (we’re going with “eccentric” because he’s rich and famous, when you’re poor and unknown you’re just weird) is changing his name…

To Metta World Peace.

Seriously.

TMZ has seen the official court documents and… well, this decision is very Ron Artest. This has to be approved by a judge, but name changes are almost never turned down unless you request being Bill Gates.

We’ll admit, that even for Ron-Ron (um, Metta-Metta?) this is a little out there. But it should say Peace across the back of his Lakers jersey next season.

But it’s better than changing your name to Ocho-Cinco. So, things could be worse.
