Chad Ochocinco Taking Back His Johnson

Maybe it was coming off of his worse season ever, with 15 catches, 276 yards and one single touchdown. Or maybe it was losing the Super Bowl last Sunday after having little game time. No, no. The actual reason behind New England Patriots wide receiver Chad Ochocinco wanting to change his last name back to “Johnson” is love. Engaged to VH1′s Basketball Wives Evelyn Lozada, he said that he doesn’t want his wife-to-be to have a made up name. The two reality stars met in 2010 through Twitter and quickly got engaged after.

Johnson who had his own dating show, after starring on Dancing with the Stars, changed his name in 2008 when he played for the Cincinnati Bengals. The 33-year-old father of four chose his Spanglish translation of the number eighty-five to brand himself. Ochocinco plans to make the official change on July 4th to coincide with his nuptials.

On our ridiculous scale, where does this land? Named CNBC’s #1 "Most Influential Athletes In Social Media,” should Ochocinco just stick to being a media star or focus on his game?
