Lindsay Lohan is changing her name to Rose - because of her Kabbalah beliefs. The Just My Luck actress has become intrigued by the mystical off-shoot of Judaism - made famous by Madonna and a host of other stars, including Demi Moore and her husband Ashton Kutcher - in recent months.

Lohan, 20, has allegedly been so inspired by the teachings of the Kabbalah she is now preparing to turn her back on the Catholic Church in which she was brought up and convert to the faith. The Mean Girls star will take on the name Rose once she has fully converted to the religion. It is believed the name has partly been chosen because of her birth date.

Madonna goes by the Hebrew name of Esther, derived from the religion's story of Queen Esther's victory against evil, when attending Kabbalah meetings.

Earlier this year, Lohan, who has become good friends with Madonna in recent months, revealed she was exploring the Kabbalah. She said at the time: "Yes, I am looking into Kabbalah. All of us need something. You have to grab on to whatever gets you through."
