    Our boy Troy goes to Court

    (AP) PITTSBURGH Pittsburgh Steelers star defensive back Troy Polamalu was in an Allegheny County courtroom today to get his name changed.

    But most fans probably won't notice the difference because his new name is ... Troy Polamalu.

    Polamalu's legal name was actually Troy Benjamin AMA but he has gone by Polamalu for about 15 years.

    Polamalu is the maiden name of the All-Pro safety's mother. His parents divorced in 1981.

    After a brief court hearing, County Judge Judith Friedman granted Polamalu's petition.

    His legal name is now Troy Aumau Polamalu.
    I never knew his real name was Benjamin,Wow!

    Fine
    I read this story on another site, but it stated his name just a bit differently. According to this, it appears that his middle name was Benjamin, and as though it was removed to show both his father's and mother's last name instead.


    Polamalu granted name change . . . to Polamalu
    Wednesday, January 31, 2007

    By Gabrielle Banks, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    Steelers All-Pro defensive back Troy Polamalu today was granted his request to change his name.

    He will now officially be known as Troy Polamalu.

    That's the name he has been using for the past 15 years, including during his Steelers career.

    But his legal name, until today, was Troy Benjamin Aumua.

    In a quick hearing this morning, Allegheny County Judge Judith Friedman approved the player's motion to make his mother's maiden name his own.

    According to a petition he filed, he has used Polamalu as his last name for the past 15 years. His parents divorced soon after he was born in Orange, Calif., in 1981.

    His full name is now Troy Aumua Polamalu.
