Odessa has a new Trump in town.

On Monday Ernesto Acosta legally had his name changed to Ernesto Trump, after the President.

In an interview, Ernesto tells CBS 7 that he's been contemplating the idea since Trump began running for office and that the process took over a year.

Ernesto, who is Hispanic and a Trump supporter, added that he thinks it's ironic because of his heritage.

He believes that he is the only person locally who has changed their name to the President's.

A quick search could not find any recent times where a man or woman had their name changed to Trump.

What do you think of this name change?
