    And then there are countries in which the Surname Law was adopted only in 1930s and people were more or less forced to take "conventional" (that is, non-foreign sounding) surnames such as my family. Personally, I'm not planning to change my name but I know people who did after the laws got more lax these last few years. Or those that added their old family names as middle names. In Turkey you couldn't even give your children a "foreign" first name (unless you were either Greek, Armenian or Jewish); or only could if you knew the people who were responsible. My grandparents were able to give my aunt a "foreign" (foreign for Turkey) name only because they knew the local magistrate. If there had been no such laws I would now have a Circassian surname and probably either a Slavic or Circassian first name. Like I said, I'm content with my name, but if I weren't, I think I have enough reasons to change it -going back only to the 1930s it's not exactly an ancient family tradition either.

    As for America, I know that there are no laws or regulations as to what name a person can or cannot get but during the late 19th - early 20th century registering with one's name when one had just immigrated was not too easy, either. People were given conventional names for ease of use and due to civil servants' ignorance. I remember from a class of mine in which the ethnology of New York was being discussed when the name issue came up and out professor had said that there has been a trend for some time for people to change back to their original family names as opposed to what they were handed out, or their names' simplified versions.

    Post Re: How does one change their first,last name,etc. in the United States?

    I want to add a little brief opinion on this on my views. I do not think it should be used just for the hell of it. An example would be John Doe cannot change his name to Smelly Undies. Now, if you are under the protection agency I do believe you should be able to change your name until that person that is out for you is put in jail.

    I would like to change my last name because Sicilian last names are butchered(plus American customs) quite a bit through history and I am the only one in my family studying my roots, which is sad and I hate my family for that. Out of the 4 cousins and 1 sister that are holding my last name, I have been the only one that has began reseaching.

    Sicily is not doing a really good job in kicking the moolinyans out right now !!!

    What do you mean exactly? That you want to give the name back an old, original form it had some decades ago, because it changed unpleasantly with the centuries (and in America)?

    That reminds me of that German, a non-Jew, who changed in the Third Reich his name from Israel to Oesterheld, as that was the original form of his name and Israel just the final result of a mutation little by little over generations and generations. (The story is mentioned in V. Klemperers "LTI".)

    You could also grasp directly a fillet part and change your name to Mussolini. Or Hitler-Mussolini. Definitely a cooler double name to have than Hamm-Brücher or Schmalz-Jacobsen. ROFLMAO

    Yeah, I was talking about changed within the centuries and it is unfortunate that this must occur. Today's society reminds me of the ancient past as the Negroid being the caveman out to hunt any women he can find. I got one for ya though Heinrich Hitler-Heydrich huh?ol

    Hmm... don't you think that such "natural" changes belong to one name's "history"?

    In Germany anyhow one normally isn't allowed to change one's surname - normally only either if it is a name which could be seen vexatious or ridiculous (like Schwein) or if it's name of foreign origin which is diffcult in spelling or pronunciation for Germans. - I wonder how the guy in the office would stare at me if I'd demanded to change my name in Hitler-Heydrich. "That fits to my personality", hahaha.

    Hmmm... Wouldn't Himmlerson or Hitlerson somehow fit harmonically into English.

    LOL Ha, You have a point there Nord, but the way the customs bureau changed some of the last names in the multiculti US of A, so you could no longer translate them. It angers me because you have these mestizos getting a language provided for them and they get no last name change since the tarnished nation can speak fake spanish.
