Though the name change has yet to occur, Ochocinco says plans are well under way.
The recently engaged athlete originally changed his surname in 2006 to reflect his No. 85 jersey; in 2008, he had it legally changed to Ochocinco in order to wear his nickname on his jersey.
Ochocinco's bride-to-be, model and Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada, isn't likely surprised by her fiance's announcement.
