You can.

And the best way to do that is by Deed Poll. And a Deed Poll can be witnessed by 3 independent witnesses, and it is valid. I'll put the text up as soon as I get time ... in fact I could make a Template out of it.

So ... where's the version of the User Agreement for Natural WOMen, then?

Where's the one that simply refers to "Natural Human Beings with living souls" ... that would be useful to those who are NOT of a manly persuasion?

When I get a bit more up to speed on all this stuff, I'll try to answer that V. Why not change your name to Veronica Chapwoman :giggle:

Very clever. And deserves an even cleverer answer.

Which is:

I'm commonly called Veronica: of the Chapman family ... and there is no Chapwoman family. To disavow my ancestry, and to start a Chapwoman family, would be rather audacious of me ... a bit like saying "I'm Windsor ... not Saxe-Coburg Gotha"

If I did make that change, I'd better go the whole hog n'est-ce pas? Veronica: of the Tartwoman family?

Hi V, and all who are interested in Deed Polls.

I have a template here at my website. I did my own "D.I.Y" Deed poll back in 2006, but I have modified it slightly to include the : between the names. My old Deed poll still had my last name in upper case (I wasn't 'aware' then of the legal fiction), so I'm thinking of re-doing it and using the : format, and tacking on some Roman numerals for added clarification/distiction between the old format and the new one. almos like a new incarnation of me lol. eg. Mark: Saravana II. (You can, as a point of interest, tack on as many roman numerals as you like onto a name, but not symbols or cardinal numbers.)

If anyone wants the template, here is the link to it.

Almost identical to mine which I've put up as a Template.

However, as you'll see, mine wasn't done by referring to Statutes ... even though I did use a Solicitor.

Ah, yes, the bit about the British Nationality Act is missing from yours. I will do the same when I re-do mine, as stupidly, (though unaware at the time) my 'surname' was in capitals, and it contains the above act. I'll be sure to remove the statute bit next time.

Also, my very first original deed poll ended up with only one witness, and that was never a problem. I was also never asked for any form of ID when I took it to the bank to get the relevant changes made, which did surprise me at the time, as when I had to cancel a lost bank card, they wanted all sorts of information. They took a photocopy of the deed poll, and that was it. :grin: Whether that would be the same now as a few years ago I'm not sure, but I'll try it when I make the next one.

Oh I had great fun with one lot. I'd changed everything over in 1998.

Then, in 2008, I was contacted by a Pension Company I'd forgotten all about (It was from a company I had only worked with for about 18 months, so the Pension itself wasn't really worth having, to be honest). It was all in my previous name.

They asked for my Deed Poll. Now ... the other part of it is:

1. That Solicitor no longer 'practices'

2. The Post Office CHEERFULLY ADMIT to losing 30 Berth Sustifcates per month.

So I told the Pension Company I'd lost it (hadn't really ... but I couldn't be bothered to dig it all out ... and go through all that rigmarole again. I've been Veronica for so long, it's like ... ancient history, as far as I'm concerned)

Anyway ... much to-ing & fro-ing in the way of letters (and there are plenty of examples of the way I write on this Forum!), I eventually said: "I can send you my Driving Licence. It would be a problem if that were lost but I could, eventually, get a replacement".

They wrote back saying "Oh ... that's OK ... we will accept who you are ... and change the name".

Yes ... threaten them with your Driving Licence!

Ya, I thought of that after posting my reply. It's a bit like if someone copies a photo you have taken and copyrighted really isn't it? That's why I have to think these things through pretty carefully before acting on them, doh!
