Portia de Rossi was brought into this world as Amanda Lee Rogers, but she legally glamourized her name when she was 15 and now she’s switching that shit up again. TMZ reports that Portia wants to be known as Portia Lee James DeGeneres from now on and is asking the court to grant this. Portia and Ellen DeGeneres got married two years ago.
I know that Portia is changing her name for love, but I still don’t understand! Why would you ever want to be known as something other than Portia de Rossi?! Portia de Rossi sounds like the name of a split bottle of wine you might find in a mini-fridge at a Radisson. Portia de Rossi sounds like the name of an Italian contessa who has come to Falcon Crest to seek revenge on Melissa Agretti. Portia de Rossi sounds like the name of the body wash your grandma gave you for Christmas.
Portia de Rossi is the best made up name ever! Can’t Ellen change her name to Ellen de Rossi instead?
