Miley Cyrus’ mother has followed in her famous daughter’s footsteps – she wants to legally change her name.

Cyrus’ country singer dad Billy Ray and mum Leticia named their daughter Destiny Hope when she was born in 1992.

They quickly dubbed her Smiley due to her cheerful nature, which was later shortened to Miley, and the Hannah Montana star officially took on her moniker in 2008.

Now her mother is following suit – Leticia has filed to have her name changed legally to her nickname Tish. In the application papers, she insists she has been known by the moniker “for as long as she can remember”, according to TMZ.com.
