Why are Angelina Jolie-Brad Pitt's children changing their names?

These name changes come amid reports of a strained relationship between Pitt and his children following Jolie's 2016 divorce filing and request for sole physical custody. In August 2022, PEOPLE reported that Pitt expressed hope for improving his relationship with his children despite the ongoing custody battle. The report stated, "It's been a sad situation for years," noting that there have been extended periods where Pitt had no contact with his children.
