Ron Artest officially changes his name to Metta World Peace

Metta World Peace has arrived!

Ron Artest has been trying to legally change his name to Metta World Peace for a while now, but because of a few legal issues he had to wait until he cleared them up before he could change his name.

Now Ron Artest is no more and you can say hello to Metta World Peace.  A Los Angeles judge granted his name change petition today after waiting for more than three months to become Mr. World Peace.

Guess when we see Ron on the season premiere of ‘Dancing with the Stars’ on September 19, it will be his first big welcome into Hollywood with his brand new name.
