Teen Rapper Wants To Change His Legal Name

Kodak Black has lost his bid to change his legal name to “Bill Kahan Blanco.”

A judge last week denied the Florida teen rapper’s motion to change his legal name from Dieuson Octave to Bill Kahan Blanco.

Kodak filed docs in June to change his given name, although it’s not clear why Kodak chose the name or what its significance is.

The rapper is currently on probation in Florida and facing seperate sex abuse charges in South Carolina, and it was unknown Thursday whether those issues were factors in the judge’s decision.

It also isn’t clear if Kodak’s son, King Khalid, 2, would have this new last name if the name change went through.

We’ve reached out Kodak’s lawyer for comment.
