English woman changes her name in order to log in to Facebook

A woman who used a pseudonym on Facebook so that she’d be more difficult to find has changed her name by deed poll to the fake name because she was blocked from accessing her account.

Jemmaroid von Laalaa, who was previously called Jemma Rogers, had been using the made-up name since 2008 so that she could avoid getting friend requests from people she didn’t want to befriend on the social network. But that plan backfired when she lost access to her account,according to The Independent.

I don’t know what makes me sadder. That Facebook is so strict in their name policy, or that someone needed Facebook enough to legally change her name to Jemmaroid von Laalaa.
