Actor Jay Mohr Adds His Wife's Last Name to His

 - Dec 28, 2008

In the ultimate display of a man who is truly in touch with his feminine side, as a second anniversary present to his wife, Nikki Cox, Jon Ferguson Mohr petitioned the court to change his name. He didn’t append Cox’s name to the end of his (as a woman might) to make his full name Jon Ferguson Mohr Cox, however; instead, he opted for Jon Ferguson Cox Mohr--or, should we say, "Jay Cox Mohr?"

Could Jay Mohr adding Nikki Cox’s last name to his own inspire other husbands to do the same with their wives, to break the tradition of women using their husbands’ surnames only? Perhaps. Sometimes celebrities pave the way for change, and other times not.
