Maybe you think, “I hate my name” because – It’s too odd. Too strange or difficult. Or, maybe it’s too plain and ordinary? Whichever reason it is, some people can’t relate to themselves with the name they were born with. Takes too long to spell or pronounce it. “I hate my name” is a real thing. For some people, their own name reminds them of terrible experiences or bad people. What if you can see a future for yourself, but a new name would help you step into that future and your current name isn’t invited? Any of that sound familiar? Name Change is a real solution for this condition. And, this is something within your control if you want to do something about it (check out top reasons to change your name).

STEP 1 – Pick A New Name
If you have already been going by the name of your choice, even though it’s not your legal name now, then you have your new name.
But, if you just hate your current name and don’t yet have a new name, give it some thought. Think about yourself now, in all your situations. And, think about the future you have in mind for yourself. You may already have some ideas of what your new name should be. Maybe you have some ideas of what it should look like, or sound like, generally, but not yet exactly what it will be. Try writing it out, with variations. Try saying it out loud.
You want a name that doesn’t detract from the person you are and, more importantly, reflects the one you will be forever becoming. You want your name to compliment you in all you do. Something that is consistent with your interests, your strengths, your desires, your beliefs – something that is you. You can choose a name you’ll love to say, and spell, and see over and over again. Choose the real, right name for yourself and start using it in all you do. When you’re ready, you can make it legal. Really.
I Hate My Name – What Choices Do I Have?

If you decided to change your last name to your spouse’s, after you are already married…you can.If you want an initial, only, for your middle name, you can. AND, you can change your first name to your middle name if you want. Or, you can make your nickname your legal name. Just because it’s free form, that doesn’t mean you have to change a lot if you don’t want to. You can just change one letter, if that’s exactly the way you want it. Or, just one part of your name. That’s fine too. Some people don’t even change one letter. They just change the spacing, or a hyphen. The point is….take the name you really want. Maybe we can’t do everything we want in our everyday lives. But, you can have exactly the name you want, legally.
