. . . Michael Buday, who is suing (with the help of the ACLU) to change his last name to that of his wife, Diana Bijon.
The two live–where else?–in L.A. Buday promised his wife, Bijon, he’d take her last name to preserve her father’s family name (there are no Bijon sons).
Reports USA Today:
A groom seldom asks to adopt his bride’s name, says Myleta Miller, a clerk at Atlanta’s Probate Court. No national statistics are kept, but Miller says she’s seen “no more than five” such applications in six years on the job.
That means there were no fewer than five uber-girlie-men in six years in Atlanta (and probably far more).
It’s early in 2007, but I’m confident that Michael Buday will not be outgirlie-manned by the end of the year.
Call it “The Shrewing of the Tame.”
