Has your name been misspelled? Would you like to change your surname after marriage? Would you like to revert to your original surname after divorce? Are you unhappy with your current name?
These are just some of the reasons that people may want to change their names. They change their names to something which they feel is more acceptable or more fitting for their personality or style.
Sometimes people may want to change their name due to astrological or numerological reasons. They may want to alter or modify the spelling of their names, or even want to take on a pseudonym or a stage name, as many celebrities and those in the arts are seen to do in today’s world. Others, meanwhile, may choose to change their name to something that is easy for people to remember, or ones with high recall value, or names which are not difficult to pronounce for people from different countries. It is also seen that people sometimes choose to take on names of famous people from history or from contemporary life due to such a person having had an influence or inspiration in their lives.
People may want to change their names due to reasons that are entirely personal, such as wanting to change their existing name because they feel it may be embarrassing or awkward to use, or a name that carries an unpleasant meaning in a different language.
Nowadays, it is also often seen that when people get married, it is the husband who changes his family name to that of his wife’s. While on other instances, parents keep their respective surnames but merge their surnames to create a hyphenated surname for their children.
Whatever your reason may be, a change of name is a perfectly legal practice and it is fairly common around the world. As long as there is no intention to deceive or defraud, changing one’s name is fully acceptable and not in violation of any law.
However, merely declaring oneself to have a new name does not make such a name change official and legally binding. To make a change of name legal and official, a person will need to submit an affidavit along with an ad for name change in a newspaper.
Booking a change of name ad is a necessity because it is what makes the change of name official and legally enforceable. Along with the affidavit, a person needs to publish a newspaper name change advertisement in at least two of the country’s newspapers. One must be an English language newspaper, and one must be a newspaper in the respective regional language of the state or Union Territory that the person is a resident of.
