Legally changing your name

Just wondering if anyone on this forum legally changed their name?

I'm considering changing my name because my name is hard to pronounce...Cuong I will be chaning it to Michael.
I live in Virginia if that helps because I know some states might have different laws governing name changes.

Re: Legally changing your name

I've thought about changing mine to Ocho Cinco...oh wait...

Seriously, though, I'm not sure what to do. You could always go by Michael (casually) even if your legal name is something else.

Re: Legally changing your name

I don't have a common first or last name (my last name is mispronounced constantly), but I've never considered legally changing it.

I can certainly understand being tired of people mispronouncing your name, but you have a unique name. Be proud of it.
