Kathryn Hahn and her husband, Ethan Sandler, have decided to change the names of their children legally. The couple wants to add ‘Hahn,’ the actress’ maiden name, to the name of their son and daughter.
The legal documents obtained by news tabloid TMZ have confirmed that Kathryn and Ethan filed a petition for their children’s name change in Los Angeles last week. Read on to know what would be the new names of the kids.
Kathryn Hahn and Ethan Sandler File Petition to Legally Change their Kids’ Names
The legal documents show that the couple wants to add ‘Hahn’ as a second middle name before the last name ‘Sandler’ for their 16 year old son Leonard Henry Sandler and 13 year old daughter Mae Marie Sandler. After the addition, the kids will bear the names Leonard Henry Hahn Sandler and Mae Marie Hahn Sandler.
The couple has not yet revealed the reason behind the change of names. Kathryn, 49, had met Ethan, 49, during college at Northwestern University. The two got married in 2002 and welcomed their son Leonard in 2006, followed by daughter Marie in 2009.
The WandaVision actress leads a normal family life despite her fame. She had talked about her kids and husband in an interview in 2008 and said, “I have cute kids and a forever husband and two dogs and a rabbit and now a hamster… So I have this rich and creative life but also a normal life, and I’ve been able to keep the two separate and sacred.”

The actor, who was born Aaron Paul Sturtevant, changed his name to Aaron Paul, the name he has kept in the industry for years. His wife, Lauren, also changed her last name to Paul, and the couple renamed their newborn son from Casper Emerson Paul to Ryden Caspian Paul.
The family revealed that they wanted to conform to Aaron’s professional name and also wanted to keep a consistent surname, which is why they chose to file the legal petition.
