Resident Evil star Milla Jovovich wants to change her name.

No, it's not because she's tired of everyone pronouncing it incorrectly (mee-luh yo-vo-vitch is correct, by the way). In fact, it's just a case of Mrs. Anderson-Jovovich wanting to switch things up a bit.

TMZ reports that Jovovich, whose legal name is currently Milla Anderson-Jovovich (she's married to director Paul W.S. Anderson), wants to flip her hyphenated surname.

She's apparently filed court documents to change her name to Milla Jovovich-Anderson.

Happy Monday everyone! Me and my amazing girl before school this morning! #ladiary

Though TMZ and some tabloids are being a bit tongue-in-cheek sensationalist about the whole thing (NAME OVER
... Wants New Identity!), it's not really a total name change as much as a name rearrangement.

She's also petitioned the court to change the name of her seven-year-old daughter to Jovovich-Anderson as well. Here lies the likely motivation for Milla's name change.

Anderson-Jovovich is currently pregnant with her second child – another girl. Filming on the next installment of the Resident Evil franchise has been put on hold.
