The California courts  have said yes to LA Lakers forward Ron Artest’s request to have his name changed. What’s the new moniker? Metta World Peace.

World Peace said about his decision, “Changing my name was meant to inspire and bring youth together all around the world.” Millions of kids will certainly see his new name, as World Peace will now be displayed on the back of his Lakers jersey.

The first name Metta is a Buddhist term that means loving kindness. It encompasses all the qualities a person might want to achieve (like compassion, benevolence, goodwill) if they want to bring about, yes, world peace. While the Laker and current Dancing with the Stars contestant is not Buddhist, he obviously believes in the meaning of the name.

World Peace was unable to be at the court on Friday for his name change. His rigorous rehearsals for his Dancing with the Stars debut kept him busy. (Spoiler alert!) Sadly, he now has a lot more free time. He was the first contestant to be eliminated from the dancing competition last night. But, he was introduced by his new name for his one and only dance.
