I’m guessing she can’t get an official “fresh start” until the matter of the felony grand theft charge is taken care of, but to help get that New Beginning Ball rolling, Lindsay Lohan is joining the ranks of Madonna, Beyonce, and Cher, and becoming…

…Lindsay.

As in, just Lindsay. No more Lohan. No more LiLo. She’s dropping her last name (and, according to PopEater.com, years and years of Irish heritage) as a way to “start over.”

(According to a family friend, Lindsay’s mom Dina Lohan and sister Ali Lohan want to start over, too. The two will not, however, be going the single moniker route; they are changing their last names to Dina’s maiden name, Sullivan. Reportedly, no one wants to be affiliated with Michael Lohan anymore.)

Naturally, there are some naysayers and critics, which is understandable because – let’s face it – Madonna, Beyonce, and Cher she is not, but I get it.

I mean, don’t most – if not all – of us understand the need for a fresh start?

I can see how changing or altering one’s name might be one step in that direction.

Just one step, mind you.

How about some of you? What are some of the things you’ve done to get a fresh start? What advice would you offer others looking to do the same thing?
