When he's not getting the grub together for Lollapalooza or fighting with Chicago magazine,Graham Elliot Bowles has apparently had more important things on his mind -- like dumping his own last name.

Perhaps the most Hollywood of Chicago chefs has decided to professionally eschew his own last name and go with Graham Elliot. If he only had two names to start with, we'd imagine he'd go the Cher, Madonna or Ronaldhino route.

A press releases states that the decision to "simplify things" came after a "lifetime of confusion and typos."

Bowls -- er, Bowles -- er, Elliot, made the decision prior to launching "Masterchef," his new show on FOX.
