Actor Aaron Paul Also Recently Filed Petition For A Name Change
Besides Hahn, “Breaking Bad” star Aaron Paul recently filed a petition in court, along with his wife and child, to change their name. Per TMZ, the actor, whose actual last name is Sturtevant, sought to rename himself Paul legally. The name is one he has gone by in the industry for many years.
Paul is not the only one looking for a name change; his wife Lauren will also be included as well as Casper Emerson Paul, their child who will be renamed Ryden Caspian Paul. Although the name is not his parent’s official title, Caspian was named Paul from birth. His name change, however, affected only his first and middle names.
The couple revealed that their reason for the name change was to conform to the actor’s professional name and ensure the family name was consistent. Paul and Lauren explained that in their child’s case, they were made to give him a name upon his birth; however, as time went on, they preferred a different name.
