A Colombian teacher who had already changed her name once to Ladyzunga Cyborg changed her name again. This time, she decided to go for a name including every letter of the alphabet, and we mean that literally!
The former Ms. Cyborg spent years fighting with the Colombian authorities in order to include all 26 letters of the English alphabet in her name. Her official ID card now reads: First name: ABCDEFG HIJKLMN Family name: OPQRST UVWXYZ.
Cyborg, who is a university art lecturer, came to the conclusion that Ladyzunga Cyborg was too easy a name to pronounce and wanted to go for something completely unpronounceable.
The 36-year-old Bogata resident, who happens to have a keen interest in the world of BDSM, began the process of changing her name again back in 2012, and received her new name and ID card a year later, despite several rejections from the Colombian National Registry.
ABCDEFG revealed her reasons for the name change during a recent interview with the Columbian website Las2orillas,
"I started looking for a name that nobody had in Colombia, or the world, so I thought ABCDEFG HIJKLMN OPQRST UVWXYZ. I've changed my name so people wouldn't know it's me. It's not because I was disturbed by it, but because I wanted to always bring an element of surprise."Meanwhile, Daniel Molano, from the Colombian National Registry, told the website, "If a civil notary had refused to modify her name in the civil registry, he would have broken his work obligations."
There's little question that the new Ms. OPQRST UVWXYZ is "out there" when it comes to her views on life, "Basically no matter how unusual, this is something that should always be allowed," she said referring to the regular bondage and fetish events she frequents.
Despite waiting more than a year to change her name, we think that it won't be long before ABCDEFG HIJKLMN OPQRST UVWXYZ decides to redefine herself and change her name once again. As and when that happens, you'll be the first to know about it. Or, maybe, the second.
