A judge approved the request Tuesday from the 41-year-old Pataskala woman, formerly named Sheila Ranea Crabtree.
In her application, Crabtree called her given name "the ugliest one out there." She says that if the court didn't allow the switch to Sexy, she'd try to become known legally by her middle name, which she has used for years.
The Columbus Dispatch reports that Crabtree told a judge that her husband and teenage daughters approve of the change.
According to Fox News, Judge Robert Hoover previously turned down such name change requests as Tasmanian Devil, Winnie Pooh and Jesus Christ Our Lord & Savior.
When the judge asked why she chose Sexy, Crabtree said she's fun and free-spirited and thought the change would make her complete.
