Erratic New York Knicks player Metta World Peace is to change his name once again.

Formerly known as Ron Artest, the NBA star legally changed his name in September 2011.

33-year-old Peace has just signed a new two-year deal with the New York Knicks, and has decided to change his name for a second time.

Peace has said he will change his name during fall. 'Metta' was chosen as his first name due to it meaning loving kindness towards all - the word derives from Buddhism.

Peace has given no clues or hints to what his new name will be, but he has revealed his new name is "going to be fun".

"I'm not going to legally change my name until my career is over, but we are going to do a name change," he told Clevver News.

Peace was chosen as the NBA defensive Player of the Year in 2004, and was regarded as one of the finest defensive players to have played professional basketball.

The 33-year-old was released from Los Angeles Lakers last off-season, after a four-year spell with the Western conference side.

Nobody is sure what World Peace's new name will be, but one thing for sure, it wont disappoint.
