Fergie, who was born Stacy Ann Ferguson and goes by the stage name Fergie Ferg, is about to confuse people yet again.

The singer is petitioning the court to legally change her first and last name — birth name, that is — to Fergie Duhamel, nearly 5 years after marrying Josh Duhamel.

In the documents she filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Fergie's lawyer says she wants to swap Stacy for Fergie in order to "conform to the first name which she is commonly and professionally known as, and has been for many years." I mean really though, when is the last time anyone called her Stacy?

In order for her request to be granted, she must publish a notice in a local paper for four consecutive weeks. But in order to do this, she'll need to get on the ball and start that because her hearing is scheduled for August 16.

Needless to say, it only makes sense for Fergie to have this name change. And even if, for some odd reason, her request isn't granted, she'll always be Fergie to us.
