Angelina Jolie’s kids get new names

jolie-kid-name-change.jpgA judge has granted a request by Angelina Jolie to change the names of her two adopted children to Zahara Marley Jolie-Pitt and Maddox Chivan Jolie-Pitt, to reflect that Brad Pitt is to become their adopted father. Plus she felt that their names weren’t already unwieldy enough, and needed those extra syllables to really pull the whole thing together. It’s a shame she didn’t have the guts to really go for it and throw on even more syllables though. Maybe work in the word “hippopotamus” somewhere.
