Chad Ochocino Changes Name Back To Chad Johnson
The era of Ochocino is over. Chad Johnson, the football player formerly known as Chad Ochocinco, had a change of heart yet again when he decided to change his name back to what his parents named him. He signed with the Dolphins on June 11, but he joined as Chad Johnson, and at 8:45 a.m. on Monday the wide receiver went to Broward courthouse in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., paid $401 and finalized the process to legally change his name to Johnson, reports NFL.com. Johnson keeps a very active Twitter handle, which still reflects his old name (@ochocinco) but he has yet to make any announcements via his page, although he has changed his name on the account to “Chad Johnson.” He did however retweet a tweet sent out by his OchoCinco News Network handle.

Here are some reactions to name change.
Chad Ochocinco now Chad Johnson again. After his ’11 season, perhaps he should have chosen to go incognito.

Chad Johnson was a much better WR than Chad Ochocinco, so this could be encouraging #Dolphins
