Ron Artest Officially Changes His Name To ‘Metta World Peace’

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Lakers forward Ron Artest is now “Metta World Peace” after he appeared before a judge Friday to officially change his name.

Artest filed a petition with the Los Angeles Superior Court to change his name back in June.

“Metta” is defined as “lovingkindness” or “the Buddhist virtue of kindness.”
