Add a Middle Name Legally

When it come to legally changing your middle name the process is quite simple:

  1. Apply for a deed poll
  2. Sign and witness your deed poll
  3. Send your deed poll to your institutions (banks, passport office) to change your official documents. Henceforth, they will show your new middle name .

Remember, until you legally change your documents, your new name will not be recognized as your legal name. Mere possession of your deed poll does not give your name a legal recognition.

Of course, there is no requirement that you immediately change all your legal documents like drivers license, passport etc. However, if you are planning on migrating to another country, it is imperative for all your documents to have the same name on it.



The UK Deed Poll Office is not a government agency. Our function is purely as a document provider for the self-declaration of an unenrolled deed poll. We are here to assist in your name change journey, as we have done for over 100,000 UK residents.
