How to change your name

Once you are 16 years of age you are entitled to change your name at any time and can do so as often as you wish without needing to legally register your name change anywhere. If you are looking to change the name of your child, you can also do this at anytime before they reach the age of 16, but everyone with parental responsibility must consent to the change of name.

After you have chosen a new name for yourself, you’ll need to obtain a deed poll to legally change your name and update your official documents such as your passport, driving license and bank cards. Obtaining a deed poll will provide you with documentary evidence and proof that you have changed your name and therefore have abandoned the use of your previous name and wish everyone to address you by your new chosen name.
