What else did the passport office require to change the name? Was the deed poll alone sufficient? Or did they require some proof of the new name being used already e.g. Bank statement or utility bill with the new name?
#2
I changed it on the council tax first, then sent that with the deed poll. That was all that was needed

Thanks.

No you have to have consent from both parents or the child can do it from 16 years old

I wonder if someone could help me here, i was born with one name (that's on my birth certificate) but when i got to school my parents enrolled me with a different surname, that name is also on my national insurance card. One of my parents is now dead and the other doesn't like to talk about it. What is my legal name ? I'm not sure what to do in this situation, any help is appreciated.

I was in the same situation, your legal name is the one on your birth certificate - you can change your name legally via Deed Poll so that it matches your 'daily used name' and that should sort it out - getting them in sync is vital for getting ID's like passports sorted.

If your not old enough to change it yet then you will need your parents input, it might be a difficult issue but its important you get it sorted out.

Good luck with it :)

Do places (many/some, it doesn't matter) accept these WITHOUT an official 'seal/stamp' of authenticity? (like you get via some of the more traditional 'paid for' version/versions of this same service/services?), or ..... thanx. :-)

I did council tax first, then passport, then used these forms of ID to change everything else

Your legal name is what is on your birth certificate. You may be known as other names. You can actually use a known as on a passport, wedding cert etc as long as it's accepted that this is the case. I think it has to be your GP that does this or a notary if you provide sufficient proof.

Restrictions

There are a handful of restrictions on what names you can have, under British law. If you're considering changing your name to an "unusual" one, you might want to be aware of these:

You must have at least two full names.
Your name must be pronouncable.
You may not use punctuation, except for hypens (to link double-barelled names) or apostrophes (in surnames like O'Brien).
Your name must not be vulgar, offensive, or blasphemous.
Your name must not imply that you have a status or honour that you do not: for example, you cannot take "Lord", "Princess", or "Professor" as a first name (unless, in theory at least, you already have the right to use that word as a title).
You cannot change your name for fraudulent purposes (e.g. to pretend to be somebody else or to attempt to escape from a legitimate debt).
If you are a married woman changing your surname from the one you share with your husband to different one, and you wish to register your Deed Poll with the Central Office of the High Court, there are archaic laws that mean that you may require your husband's permission, first. Seek legal advice.
You may or may not specify your title (Mr, Mrs, Miss, Ms.) on your Deed Poll. Most people seem not to. Regardless of your status or qualifications, any man is permitted to use Mr, and any woman is entitled to use Mrs, Miss, or Ms. (regardless of whether or not she is married). A transgendered person may choose to use a title of the opposite gender. Anybody may use an honourific title (e.g. Dr, Capn.) only if they posess the relevant qualification or are bestowed with the relevant honour.

You ought to talk to those people in your life who may have an opinion on the matter before you change your name - although, if you're over 18, there's no requirement to do so. Consider the impact that your name change will have upon your loved ones as well as on your standing in any professional organisations of which you are a part.

Finally, if you are changing your name to be the same as that of a celebrity or famous person, be aware that if you subsequently perform business in the same sector as them (for example, if you change your name to David Bowie and go on to start a musical career), you may well be sued for trademark infringement.

Other than that, you can pick any name you like! In many European countries there are significant restrictions - or even lists of "allowable" names - that you can use, but Britain is remarkably liberal about the whole process: pick a name that suits you!
