A WOMAN has revealed that she changed her name to Wednesday Adams after her divorce, prompting backlash from trolls.
On the heels of the debut of new Netflix show, Wednesday, the Addams Family character's popularity has skyrocketed.
However, the woman said it has nothing to do with the new Netflix show.
The woman, whose birth name is Charlotte Adams, is a mother of three children living in the UK.
Her divorce is what sparked her name change decision, Newsweek reports.
But she has loved the Addams Family since she was a kid – and especially Wednesday.
"She's cool, she's strong, she's very independent, she's completely amazing," Adams told the outlet.
Adams even went so far as to compare her parents, Julie and Neil, to Wednesday Addams' folks, Morticia and Gomez.
Julie and Neil have been married for 29 years; not dissimilar to the devoted relationship of the Addams parents.
In fact, Adams told Newsweek that her mother originally wanted to name her Wednesday.

However, her mother, Joyce, talked her out of it.
Not to mention the fact that Charlotte was born on a Tuesday.
"She basically turned around and said 'you can't call a beautiful baby girl Wednesday,'" Adams said.
"'She'll get bullied.'"
Adams' grandmother, Joyce, chose the name Charlotte.
"It was alright," Adams said.
"It was just a very typical, everyday name.
"I've always been a bit different and believed in not following the crowd.
"So Wednesday is a better fit."
Adams also said that the name change is something of a fresh start after dealing with multiple abusive and tumultuous relationships.
"I had a really bad past as a child, particularly from the ages of 7 to 12," she said.
When she discovered earlier this year that her husband of 10 years was cheating on her, Adams knew it was time for a change.
Adams decided to raise her three children as a single mother and return to school to become a barrister.
"I've been through so much in my life. Charlotte cried so many tears, but as Wednesday says 'crying is weakness.'
"New me, new start, and to come back stronger. That's what I need."
Adams said the response to her name change has been positive – though she was concerned about trolls at first.
"All of my friends are really happy for me," she said.
