Backstreet Boys Singer AJ McLean Says He Supports His Nine-Year-Old Daughter Ava Changing Her Name to ‘Elliott’

By Cassandra Fairbanks

Former Backstreet Boys singer AJ McLean is publicly speaking out in support of his nine-year-old daughter Ava changing her name to “Elliott.”

News of the daughter’s name change broke when his wife Rochelle shared a photo of Ava holding a sign that said “Elliott’s First Day of 4th Grade!”

 

“When my daughter asked to change her name to Elliott, initially, I didn’t know if it was a transgender thing, which it is not, but it is a personal choice,” McLean told People Magazine. “And it is her body, it’s her name, it’s her everything. And she’s still Ava. She’ll always be Ava to me.”

“But at the same time, whatever reasoning it is, that’s hers, and I’m going to support it a million percent, my wife will [too],” the former boy band member added.
