Name change is a legal act, recognized in practically all legal systems, that allows an individual to adopt a name different than 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 rather loose limitations on name changes while civil law jurisdictions are quite restrictive.
