Ron Artest/Metta World Peace/Panda Friend is now officially going by a new name. This time he's dropping the World Peace, taking his original last name back, and hyphenating it with his wife's. Put simply (no, wait, confusingly) he'll be going by Metta Sandiford-Artest from here on out. 

Sandiford-Artest revealed this new switch-up during an appearance on Inside the Green Room with Danny Green, and he said it was to honor his wife, Maya Sandiford. You can hear the name talk starting at the 41:40 spot below:

"My name now is 'Metta Sandiford-Artest.' I actually took my wife's last and added it to mine," he said.
