An anti-bullying group over the weekend honored the 11-year-old boy who gained national attention this month for changing his name from "Trump." 

The boy and his parents say that he changed his name after enduring two years of bullying. 

Teach Anti Bullying, a Philadelphia-based nonprofit group, on Saturday awarded the boy, who now goes by Joshua Berto, with the National Anti Bullying Medal of Courage, according to a Facebook post.

"This little boy has been victim to relentless bullying simply over his last name that is associated with our 45th President of the United States," the organization wrote on Facebook after the ceremony, as first reported by ABC News. "Glad we [could] bring a smile back to his wonderful face." 

Joshua's parents last week told WPVI in Philadelphia that their son, who formerly went by Joshua Trump, had been teased since before Trump took office.

"They curse at him, they call him an idiot, they call him stupid," his mother, Megan Trump, told the news station.

Joshua is not related to the president, WPVI reported. 

He is now using his father's last name, Berto.
