Fergie — My Fergalicious Name Change is Complete

Exclusive 0816_fergie_01
isn”t just a stage persona anymore — she”s officially changed her name from Stacy Ann Ferguson to Fergie Duhamel after a judge gave the sign off on Friday.

Fergie — who”s been married to actor Josh Duhamel for nearly 5 years — requested the name change last month, claiming she wanted it for a bunch of reasons … not the least of which is that no one ever calls her Stacy.

Fergie had to publish a notice in a local newspaper for four weeks (just like Ron Artest before he became Metta World Peace), which she dutifully did.

And just like that, she”s a new person — at least legally.
