View Full Version : Changing your (real) name?

Has anyone ever had their real name, either first and/or last, legally changed? I had mine changed by UK deed pole and it was finalized today. The main reason I did it was because my non-existent father chose my Christian name and I've always resented that (never liked the name much either), and because my last name was reall unusual and I just got sick of the looks, the comments, and "how do you spell that again?".

I'm so happy with my new name, I feel it fits me better and I like that I got to choose.

Has anyone else eer done this or if you were to change your first name what would you change it to?

I want to drop my first and middle name and just have my last name.

I dropped my middle name. I just didn't want one and I just hated the name (it was Katherine...snore). My first name was Tania, I'm now Charlie, which I love and suits me much better. :) I like my new last name too...so simple, so common, so easy to spell. Yay! :lol:

By the way, Ai, is that you in your avatar? If so you're a total knockout. Wow.

...My middle name is Katherine....No offense taken I hope? It's not a bad name at all I just didn't like it for me.

I'm most fortunate to have fallen madly and deeply in love with a guy who has a kick ass last name. I thank him often.

I've always loved Charlie for a girl's first name. It's a relatively common name in the UK, but hardly ever heard of anywhere else. Good choice.

Thanks. :) It's not short for anything either, it's just Charlie on it's own. I didn't like Charlotte or Charlene enough to have either of those names and just have Charlie as a nick, so I went for just Charlie.

I'm going to ask krang to change my real name. LOL! To what? :P

My last name was legally chaged. My dad and mom did it because my uncle spelt my dad's last name wrong when he came to America.

PS. I was born in Michigan

I want to change my name. My last name definately needs to be changed. It's not very common, but I don't like it. So I will probably change that someday. I just don't want to have to go through all the crap I may have to go through to change it and exist afterwards.

If I'm going to change my name, it'll be for something cool... like Batman.

Don't let the avatar fool you; Ai is a manly woman. You'd easily mistake her for an East German lady.

Do any of you remember the guy who legally changed his name to Optimus Prime??

Here's a link to an article on it.

Optimus Prime is heading out to the Middle East with his guard unit on Wednesday to provide fire protection for airfields under combat.

That right there cracked me up for some reason.

That will totally kill 50% of the jokes I made about him.

Why would I want to change my name? I'm the source of most of the jokes here!

Not my fault everyone's a pervert, including myself.

I wanna change my name to Princess Consuela (sp?) Banana Hammock or Crap Bag :wink:

But seriously, I like my name. Although apparently I look like a 'Chris' whatever that means. But that is a cool name

This thread causes people to change their names to Victor Asswhompen.

My name is Charlie,but oddly enough my parents called me Jake for a few days because they couldn't decide between Jake and Charlie.

I haven't gone by my birth name for several years now. It's still my legal name... I've been up until now too cheap to have it legally changed (which costs something like $125).

I plan on having it changed over the summer, though. It'll be a lot less confusing if all my legal documents are under the name I actually use. ;)

I'm fine with my first name, but I would legaly change my last name (not that it's a bad last name, I just want to seperate myself from my messed up family tree). :ohwell:
I guess I'll be doing that soon.

You sure? Think of all the discounts you'd get at the neo-Nazi rallies on all the merchandise.
