Anyone over the age of 18 can choose to change their name at any time, and for any reason, as long as their intent is not to defraud or deceive another person.

Some common reasons that people choose to change their name:

  • They are unhappy with their current name
  • Divorce or separation
  • Marriage
  • Adoption
  • To have the same surname as their child
