Jermaine Jackson has petitioned to legally change his name to Jermaine Jacksun, TMZ reports.

The brother of the late Michael Jackson filed a request with L.A. County Superior Court Wednesday, claiming the change is for "artistic reasons."

The art Jackson is referring to remains unknown since he has not recently been linked to any projects. An e-mail to Jackson's rep was not immediately returned.

If Jackson's request is approved by a judge, he will have to publically announce his new name several times in the following months before it's made official.

What do you think of the name change?
