A day your parents will not be so happy about! Don't like your name? Today you are expected to do something about it. That's right, its time to fill out all the petitions, orders and affidavits, getting them stamped and notarized. And after you publish an announcement in the newspaper (for legal reasons) you'll have to take your new name paperwork to the DMV, the Social Security office, get a new passport, a new birth certificate, change your business cards, email addresses, postal address, call the IRS... wow, this name changing business might just be more trouble than its worth! Unless you change it to Chad Ochocinco. That's just cool.

actually, you don't have to change your birth certificate....just keep the name change paperwork, once finalized, with your birth certificate....it's where I've kept mine for the past 22 years :-)....along with my divorce decree, marriage license, etc.
