From a conversation I just had with my ISP's customer service.

"You are the same person, though? It's just the name that's different?"
"Yes, I just changed my name."
"So what happened?"
"...I changed my name."
"It was your choice, though?"
"Yes, it was my choice. No one forced me. I went to the office of births, deaths, and marriages and got a new certificate."
"You can do that?"
"Yes, people do it all the time."

I may have just put a new idea in somebody's head. :D

That's really awesome. *^^*

I changed my given name several years ago, and once when I went down to the provincial office of Vital Statistics (which is only the office responsible for name changes), the person I dealt with took a few tries to wrap her head around it. O_o She kept asking if I was Catholic and was maybe talking about a confirmation name. I finally did convince her that, no, I was just changing my name because I wanted to. It was very weird, given where we were.
