Irish singer/songwriter, Sinéad O'Connor, has changed her name again, after announcing that she had converted to Islam. She will be henceforth known as Shuhada' Davitt, which is 'nice'.
Born Sinéad Marie Bernadette O'Connor in 1966, not long after England had won the World Cup, she first changed her name to Mother Bernadette Mary, when she became ordained as a Roman Catholic priest in 2016.
She subsequently changed this to Magda Davitt in 2017.
This, however, obviously didn't suit, as she has now changed it again to the Muslim-sounding Shuhada' Davitt, a bit like Cat Stevens did, when he converted to Islam in the 1970s.
He did it with a bit more dignity, though.
O'Connor, as well as changing her name, also has a penchant for changing her religious faith. She seems to have no problem at all about converting from one to another, depending on which side of the bed she gets out of. One social commentator said:
"She changes her name and religion more often than her knickers."
The frequent namechanging of O'Connor (or whatever) has given rise to speculation as to what her next namechange might be.
Speculator, W. Moods, speculated:
"I think a nice girlie-sounding name, like St. Pogue Mahone might suit her."
But another man, who gave his name as D. Wooms, said:
"That's unfair. She's done a lot for various causes, particularly her own, and has stood up against oppression. She's also been a huge sensation in the world of music. To recognise all of this, I propose that her next name should be 'Our Lady Madonna crybàbė O'Minogue', or something like that."
