07:16 AM ET 11.20 | Donte Hitner, it isn't -- not yet, anyway. Rather than ask an Ohio judge to grant a name-change request Tuesday, 49ers safety Donte Whitner withdrew his application to drop the 'W' from his surname, according to the Cuyahoga County Probate Court. "I had to withdraw the name change until after the season. Judge wouldn't allow it without me being present," Whitner explained on Twitter. Whitner, a Cleveland native, formally filed his name-change paperwork Oct. 10. "The matter is hereby dismissed," Judge Laura J. Gallagher posted on the court docket after the application was withdrawn from Tuesday's hearing. Whitner voiced a desire to change his name after he drew unnecessary-roughness penalties in back-to-back games, including a touchdown-saving hit in St. Louis that cost him a $21,000 fine.

Bonehead.

Still, it's highly likely he'll be in front of a judge some time soon.

While he's at it he should drop the 't' from his first name as well.

He Hate Me thinks Whitner is all hat and no cattle.

If he doesn't get his way on this he'll pitch a Fitner.

Maybe he misfiled the paperwork to read Donte Hilter (a la the Monty Python retirement center sketch).

November 20, 2013  03:51 PM ET

He should quit the 49ers, join a white supremacist group, and adopt the name "Hitler" for his new friends.

Peak! I like it.

"Hitner"... because that'll get him out of future fines.
