A drunk man watched Celine Dion on his TV one night and was astonished to receive a letter addressed to him by calling him ‘Celine Dion’, a few days later. This letter was to inform him that his name change request has been successfully completed and his name has been changed from Thomas Dodd to Celine Dion.
Thomas has been a super-fan of the Canadian singers and it appears that this name change took place on Christmas night when he was drunk watching the TV. He blames alcohol for this amazing idea to pop up in his mind.
Thomas, now named Celine Dion is a 30 years old man from Staffordshire (UK) who works as a hospitality manager. He says that his family couldn’t believe this bizarre name change. His mom didn’t see it as a funny thing. His sister almost choked her food when she first heard of Thomas’s new name.
He says that he doesn’t want to change his name again and he is happy with this ‘drunk decision’.
Thomas reportedly paid £89 fees for this name change, legally and even applied for eight certificates as proof of his new name and identity. Despite the initial shock, he is now okay with this name change and finds it funny.
He calls himself an ‘obsessed fan’ of Celine Dion and it is not a lie. During throughout the lockdown period, he watched all her shows to pass time. He said, one day while coming back from work, he found a big fat envelope waiting for him. After reading the news inside, which confirmed his new name, he was about to pass out while standing in his kitchen.
The first thing which came to his mind was, how would he inform his HR department about this new name change? Now he seems fine with this change and only worries about being stopped by the police because in that case, Celine Dion will be really awkward he says.
Furthermore, he purchased eight certificates, each one of which cost £10. This is probably the funniest name change story during the COVID-19 pandemic and Thomas is sure that it will give people a really good laugh.
After this name change, he has not stepped outside his house, met anyone, or told his name to anyone. Although he has a good explanation for this name change it might be worse than telling the name in the first place.
He is only a little concerned that if he told people about his name, he might be sectioned. But he is hopeful that he will find a way. There is surely no rush to revert this name.
