First "Ocho-Cinco? Now...? (http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/8952566?MSNHPHCP&GT1=39002)


Twenty three years later, "Teen Wolf" is still as relevant as ever. At least in the NFL.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Greg White has officially changed his name from Gregory Alphonso White Jr. to Stylez G. White, the Tampa Bay Tribune reported on its Web site. The name, according to White, was inspired by the 1985 Michael J. Fox flick featuring some rather hairy on-court hoops action.

"That was his best friend's name," White said, according to the paper. "I always liked that name. It's not that I don't like Greg White."

In the movie, Fox's friend is named Rupert "Stiles" Stilinski. According to the report, White changed the spelling as a way to adopt the name as his own.

No word yet on whether White has noticed any improved basketball skills.

The only time you are a 'jr' is if all three of yoru names are the same...

I'm guessing, the didn't want to be associated with his father anymore.. hence the name change. Its not uncommon.
