Santogold changes name to Santigold

No explanation given for new title

Santogold changes name to Santigold
Santogold has changed her name to Santigold, but has offered no explanation as to why she adopted the new moniker.

The Brooklyn-based artist, whose real name is Santi White, confirmed the new name in a press release saying simply: "Santogold is now Santigold. She's not telling you why, that's just how it is. No unpronounceable symbol, no numbers where they shouldn't be, no random capitalization, just plain ass Santigold so remember that."

Baltimore man Santo Rigatuso last year filed a suit against White for using the name Santogold, which he says he's been using since 1983.
