From the time Bobbi Kristina’s parents divorced back in 2007, Bobbi Kristina is said to have always wanted to change her name because of the negative relationship she has with her father.

According to TMZ:

Bobbi Kristina Brown can’t stand her name … because of its association with her father Bobby Brown.

Mother Whitney, though, always allegedly advised her against it. With her mother’s death, friends close to Bobbi Kristina reportedly say that she has decided to change her name to “Kristina Houston.”

Many thought Whitney’s passing would encourage Bobbi Kristina to rebuild her relationship with her dad. At the time of Whitney’s death, Darlene Love, Whitney’s godmother, told Access Hollywood that the Houston family, who have often shown public disdain for Bobby, would not get in the way of Bobby’s relationship with his daughter.

That’s really going to have to be her choice whether she wants him in her life… and I don’t think nobody is going to give her any information or try to move her one way or the other. That’s one decision she’s definitely going to have to make on her own, Love noted.

Close friend of Whitney’s Bebe Winans also added that Whitney would want her daughter to have a good relationship with her dad.

The thing that is real is that’s what Whitney would say, BeBe said, when asked if Bobby should be a part of his daughter’s life. Even when they decided to divorce… she told Bobbi Kristina, ‘He will always be your father. You will need your father,’ and no matter what happens, she will have her father because Whitney’s family understands that.

Obviously, a name change would be a major rejection of Bobby, further straining their precarious relationship. No family is perfect, and while most can attest to difficult relationships with their parents, Bobbi Kristina’s alleged decision to change her name may become one she regrets.

While she is of age to make the decision, Bobby Brown will always be her father. It would seem that part of Bobbi Kristina making peace with her mother’s death and moving forward with her life is attempting to improve her relationship with the one parent she has left. As she has just witnessed, life is both brutally unpredictable and short.
