Aaron Paul wants to legally change his name to Aaron Paul

Aaron Paul wants to legally change his name to Aaron Paul

The actor has also requested to change his baby boy's name from Casper Emerson Paul to Ryden Caspian Paul.

Breaking Bad actor Aaron Paul has filed a petition to change his name to Aaron Paul legally.

The 43-year-old actor, whose real last name is Sturtevant, has submitted legal documents to have it changed to Paul, according to reports obtained by TMZ.

I mean, Aaron Sturtevant, we must admit it doesn’t have the same ring.

However, the A-lister isn’t the only one in the household changing his name, as Paul’s wife, Lauren, is also looking to change her last name to Paul.

The pair cited the reason for changing their last names was because the actor wanted to go by his professional name while also wanting consistency in the family.

Looks like the couple has also taken a leaf out of Kylie Jenner’s book as well.

They're reportedly requesting to change their seven-month baby’s name from Casper Emerson Paul to Ryden Caspian Paul.

As per the documents obtained by the outlet, Aaron and Lauren said they were required to name their baby boy at the hospital; however, shortly after he was born, the couple settled on another name that they liked better.

Soon after his birth, Paul shared three photos to Instagram of Ryder, writing: “My little man. Ryden Caspian Paul. So happy you are out in this world you beautiful boy you. I promise to make you proud little guy.

“We have been absorbing this baby boy for the last month and feel it’s time to finally share the news of his arrival. We love you endlessly.”

Paul is best known for his break-out performance in Breaking Bad, where he played Jesse Pinkman, a crystal meth cook who works alongside his former high school chemistry teacher Walter White (Bryan Cranston).

The role led to Paul winning a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series in 2010, 2012, and 2014, making him the first actor to win the category three times since its separation into drama and comedy.

While the show ended in 2013, the actor reprised his role earlier this year in the spin-off series Better Call Saul.

During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, he confirmed that this would be the last time we see Jesse Pinkman on the small screen.

He said: “[Jesse Pinkman] will always have a special place inside of me, but I can confidently say that [Better Call Saul] was the last time we’re going to see Pinkman. So it was a nice farewell.”
