    I'm thinking about changing my name in the next few months by deed poll. It costs about £30 to do.

    I'm thinking about changing my name to one of the following:

    George Lock

    Edward Howard

    William Willoughby

    Edward Canterbury

    What do you think of these names?

    (This is NOT a joke - I am 100% serious).

    Hi, I recently just changed my name by deed poll (got rid of my deadbeat dad's surname, kept my mums, and gave myself a cutie middle name that would make a nice nickname). it should only be £12, even cheaper if you are still young enough for parents to be receiving child benefits. IMO I like George Lock. It's subtle, sophisticated and also can be used as a pun (you can bet your ass my middle name has plenty of pun opportunities)

    Change your name to John Locke, then whenever someone reads your name the first thing they will think is if you're the guy from Lost :lol:

    Why are you paying to change your name when you can do it for free?
    That is my question?

    Another vote here for George Lock (of those options).

    I'm considering using deed poll to give myself a middle name, as my parents couldn't find one they liked when I was born
