Name change

Name change generally refers to a legal act allowing a person to adopt a name different from their name at birth, marriage, or adoption. The procedures and ease of a name change depend on the jurisdiction. In general, common law jurisdictions have loose limitations on name changes while civil law jurisdictions are restrictive. A pseudonym can be regarded as a name adopted to conceal a person's identity, and does not always require legal sanction.
