The Aussie actress, who was born Amanda Lee Rogers, adopted the name Portia de Rossi when she first became a model - years before arriving in Hollywood.

A Los Angeles judge granted the actress official permission to change her name in court on Thursday (23Sep10).

She'll now be known as Portia Lee James DeGeneres.

The actress married comedienne-turned-TV personality Ellen DeGeneres in 2008.
