There’s a lot that goes into a name. Back in Biblical times, someone’s name usually determined their destiny. And Destiny Hope Cyrus has officially changed her name to Miley.
Sure, most people never knew her as anything other than “Miley,” but the Hannah Montana actress/singer had been going by a moniker given to her years ago.
Originally, the nickname was “Smiley” when Cyrus was growing up, due to her constant penchant for a big smile.
And here’s the kicker- she took “Ray” as her middle name, to honor her father Billy Ray Cyrus. In other words, Destiny Hope Cyrus is now Miley Ray Cyrus.
Enjoy the pictures of Miley visiting the Children’s National Medical Center earlier this month.
