In March 2014, he filed legal documents in Los Angeles to change his name given at birth (Christopher Edwin Breaux) to his stage name Frank Ocean. However, the judge denied his request at first due to legal issues: tickets for expired insurance, driving with his headlights off and going over the speed limit.
