After years of getting bullied because his name was Blanket Jackson, Michael Jackson’s youngest son has undergone a name change. The 13-year-old will now go by Bigi, according to RadarOnline.
An inside source said that he changed his name before entering The Buckley School in Sherman Oaks, CA “because he hated getting bullied and made fun of because his name was Blanket.”

“He always thought that the name Blanket sounded so stupid and resented his father for calling him that,” the insider said. “Growing up, his school mates have always been slightly mean to him because of their jealousy over who he is and going by Blanket made him a much easier target for ridicule.”
The name Bigi is of German descent and means idealistic, sensitive and inspirational.
