Miley Cyrus

She plays Hannah Montana, and was born Destiny Hope Cyrus, but now she's officially Miley Ray Cyrus.

Given the nickname "Smiley" when she was growing up, Entertainment Tonight reports that the 15-year-old has legally changed her name to Miley to reflect that. She chose to adopt Ray as her middle name in honor of her father, Billy Ray Cyrus.
