Former University of Kentucky basketball star Willie Cauley-Stein's hyphenated last name is official now, as is a change in his middle name.
Cauley-Stein, 21, was born Willie Durmond Cauley Jr. He filed a name-change order Friday with the Probate Division of the Fayette District Court to legally change his name to Willie Trill Cauley-Stein.
"I want to include my mother's last name," was Cauley-Stein's reason for the change, according to the court document.
Cauley-Stein's mother, Marlene Stein, said her son decided to change his middle name since he was already there to change his last name.

Trill is the "nickname his 'boys' call him," Marlene Stein said.
