As Isabela Moner prepares to launch a music career on the heels of her big summer with the release of Dora and the Lost City of Gold , the actress has revealed she's changed her name.

As recently as September, Isabela was celebrating her mom's victories in that battle on Instagram. And on that family note, even though Isabela has never met her grandmother, she told Refinery29 she feels very connected to her grandmother's spirit — hence wanting to identify with it by taking on the last name Merced.
