kate middletonLooks like people don't just want to emulate the Duchess's style. That's not good enough for her most rabid fans, apparently. They want to have her name too. According to a new poll, February is the month during which most people change their names. And the star people are most likely to change their name to is Kate Middleton. Imitation may be considered the sincerest form of flattery, but this is just plain weird.

The researchers said the reasons for a name change are manifold. Some believe it will give them a fresh start, allowing them to re-invent themselves. Others want to change a name that has long brought them embarrassment (think Mr. Peckermouth) or they share a name with a hated politician. Then there were those who said they would do it for a dare.

Kate topped the list of the most popular celeb names, followed by Cheryl Cole and Helen Mirren. Beyonce made the list at #6 and Marilyn Monroe at #15, but poor Lady Gaga came in dead last (though that's certainly no surprise). Talk about obsessive fans. I love Duchess Kate as much as the next girl, but to have the same name won’t get anyone any closer to that Cinderella dream. It’s actually quite sad. On the bright side, imagine the perks when you make dinner reservations!
