DEVON , England, April 14 (UPI) -- A UK man won the right to have the name of a Disney character appear on his driver's license after legally changing his name for charity. Buzz Lightyear, who was formerly known as Sam Stephens, changed his name to raise money for children's cancer charity CLIC Sargent.
The 26-year-old from Devon said he checked with the DVLA when he decided to change his name and was told it would be approved to appear on his license.
Lightyear said his appeals were originally denied because using the name of a fictional character could cause complications while traveling abroad.
A spokesman for the DVLA told the BBC that a range of evidence was needed before the change could be allowed.
Lightyear said he chose to change his name not only out of love for the character, but also to keep people interested in his fundraising.

Since fines don't seem to deter drivers from using their phones, some suggest shaming can change social attitudes.
CBC Radio technology columnist Dan Misener has looked into the campaign, and the effectiveness of online shaming.
We don't know exactly how they're finding drivers, but it's unlikely they're using any particularly sophisticated tracking technology.

In some cases, they find people who have voiced their support for distracted driving awareness a€” in which case the NHTSA gives them kudos. But in most of the cases, they're naming and shaming people who have publicly admitted to a€” and in some cases, bragged about a€” texting or tweeting or using Snapchat while driving. Of course, monitoring social media for conversations about distracted driving takes resources. And by filtering by location, local or regional law enforcement (or other agencies) could engage with just the people in their community. If the goal is reducing distracted driving accidents, the effectiveness of the NHTSA's efforts will be a really tricky thing to measure. By catching distracted drivers off-guard, calling them out, and admonishing them in a very public way, it seems they've managed to catch a lot of people's attention. At the same time, we've public shaming used as a tool a€” by retailers who post camera footage of shoplifters, for example.
Under Christian doctrine the Bible made the husband the “head” of his wife—his wife’s superior—as Christ was head of the church. I was excited to receive my official Certificate of Change of Name document in the mail a week later.
Controversy over the Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage continued in Shreveport, Louisiana, this week when a couple was denied a last name change on their drivers licenses.
Shreveport residents Troy and David Hylan legally married in New York and were finally able to have their union recognized nationally following the historic Supreme Court ruling on June 26.
The DMV later said the error was strictly a technical issue, though Hylan’s husband, David, said the issue and other road blocks in his state since the ruling have been difficult to deal with. Jindal has spoken out against the ruling in the days since, though he confirmed — despite consistent blocks for couples statewide — that his administration would not stand in the way.
Rather, it seems that they're doing simple Twitter keyword searches, looking for keywords. But this specific tactic a€” unsolicited Twitter engagement from a federal agency a€” is something I haven't seen before.
Please realize you're putting yourself and others in danger, and a silly text isn't worth it. Much of the interaction is one-on-one, with the agency engaging directly with individual Twitter users, so any differences this campaign makes likely won't show up in distracted driving statistics.
When Troy went to the DMV to officially become a Hylan in the state of Louisiana, he hit a road block. UPI also provides insightful reports on key topics of geopolitical importance, including energy and security.

It became known as UPI after a merger with the International News Service in 1958, which was founded in 1909 by William Randolph Hearst.
And frankly, it's very different from the way many of us expect official government Twitter accounts to operate.
