Last week, Michael Jackson's brother and former singing partner Jermaine was granted a name change in Los Angeles. The singer was overseas when the name change was approved. In keeping with the Jackson family tradition of being "unique", the new name for Jermaine is....

Jermain Jacksun. The Yahoo story "LA judge grants Jermaine Jackson name change" explains

"He sought the name change for "artistic reasons" and says it has nothing to do with a recent rift in his family over the care of Michael Jackson's children and family matriarch Katherine Jackson. His attorney Bret D. Lewis says Jacksun is in Europe performing with his brothers and told him that he was sure it was "a sunny day in California." Lewis says he doesn't know whether Jacksun will elaborate on the creative reasons for the change."

Maybe he's channeling his inner Michael. Those wacky Jackso(u)ns!
