Your witness must have known your child for a considerable amount of time (They need to know who your child is by their original name), but they also need to be independent from you.
This means that the witness cannot be a relative, partner or someone that lives in the same household as your child.
They must also have full mental capacity, which means that they must be able to make decisions for themselves without being affected by an impairment or disturbance of the mind (Disability or Illness).
The process of changing your child’s name is actually exactly the same as changing an adult’s name.
However, there are specific different requirements needed to change a child’s name compared to an adult.
Official bodies such as HM Passport Office will require written consent from everyone that holds parental responsibility for the child before they consider updating their records of your child.
This is not required from adult’s changing their own name.
If the consent all holders of parental responsibility is not obtainable then you’ll have to get a court order permitting the change of name and to do this you must show a good enough reason why the child's name should be changed.
