    It was my Christian name.
    christian name = first name, right? I thought you said your old first name you are now using as a middle name?

    No. I was registered as one name, Christened as another. It's quite common.

    This is so cool, changing names :woo: Why do people change them? because they don't like their current name or for having one that is like really cool? :cool:
    I'm very curious what interesting names people must change them to.
    If I could, I'd change my first name to Ken.
    Surname: Tucky
    A friend of mine changed her surname from Humphreys to Jacobs just 'cos she absolutely hated it..!

    Ohh, like a 'nickname'? My friend was called Constance, but was known by her middle name of Emma.

    Kind of. You know the singer Dido was Christened as Dido but the name on her birth certificate is Florian.

    aye, but not legally, and paying to have it changed would be pretty pointless if you weren't going to ensure you were then known by it.

    I wanted to change my name once, and did the deedpoll and then ripped it up as i changed my mind.:p:
    It was legal until i ripped it up - if you don't recognise the laws and regulations fair enough, but if you go around breaking laws because you think you're right and they're wrong, then you'll get caught out soon enough.
